    This is a better use of an iPad than as a chartplotter:



    But on a serious note, Wayne is better off sending a message to Garmin's support division. They have a flat fee to repair chartplotters. They charge $99 for mine. I looked it up so I know how much it costs in case it ever dies on me.

    I've had several of the Garmin Nuvis and handhelds and they don't seem to have a long life. They freeze up at the worst time, search for satellites forever. I'll never buy one. It is what my employer provides though.

    And depending on what died... it may cost you nothing but your time and shipping...

    I agree, contact Garmin. They might fix it for free if its a known issue. They are pretty good about repairs.

    I would send back in to Garmin for repair, it would have to be cheaper than buying one. They have pretty good turn around times,

    Any thoughts? The Garmin 546 costs about 800 bucks. I hate to re-buy things.
