Garmin GPS repair   
I have Garmin GPS and want to have it repaired. I bought it on-line and I my warranty has expired on it. I am not sure where to take it to since I did not purchased it at the phisical retail. Is there a place where I can bring my Garmin and get it fixed?

Whatever you do, DONOT do business with PDSMART. They kept my unit for over 6 weeks then told me they would order the part from China "tomorrow".

They do not answer phone calls or emails and hung up on me when I did get through.

Then, they said they were going to send my unit back un repaired because I got mad.

These people are exactly the kind of crooks you take the risk of dealing with when you try using the web for things like this.


DO NOT USE PDSMART


You WILL regret it.

GPS Repair Sites
1. I checked with sharcnet -- they won't take mine because I opened it (I now have a sheared ribbon connector).

2. Looking for a reliable repair center to take my Garmin nuvi 650. Because the repair is unusual, I especially want to talk to them in advance. Portatronics (NY) appears to be a possible candidate, but have not found a phone/ext where they will actually answer the call.

3. Other site ideas welcome.

If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services http://www.portatronics.com that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult (http://www.portatronics.com/guide).

Hi Susan,
I stood in S-A for 3 1/2 years with a VW T3 campervan, even at the Mushgrave shopping center there in Durban. I miss your braai and boerewors.
I've a Garmin 128 GPS and the screen turns black, fist a small spot, now all over the pleace.
Is it repairable, I'll do it myself, I'm in Malaysia, surrounded by S-A, even a couple from just outside Durban, nice people.
Best regards.
Willy
