I'm not so happy with my Garmin i3 now since I dropped it.
It wasn't a big drop, just a couple of feet onto a wooden floor as I bent down to pick up my keys. The result was that the LCD screen cracked inside.
I understand that the i3 is not “designed to be dropped”, but I would expect any small portable device to survive the occasional mishap. My other Garmin GPS units have managed it, as have a variety of mobile phones and PDAs - it's not ideal, but in the real world it happens from time to time.
Garmin's only response is to say that I shouldn't have dropped it and offer a repair for £91.80!
If I had dropped it from a great height, or repeatedly, I wouldn’t be so concerned. However, for such a minor knock to require a repair costing more than 50% of the purchase price seems unacceptable to me.
So do I bite the bullet and get it repaired, or cut my losses and gett something better?
