Look what's fallen off now

On the way back from Weymouth, doing our best to keep up speed in a head sea, suddenly heard the hand microphone of the radio bouncing loose. Closer inspection showed the plastic of the microphone back had given way with a crack, and the magic semi circle of plastic inside the microphone had fractured. Thus we have now a perfectly fine clip attached to the console, and a microphone which will no longer stay attached to it.

Currently held in place with duck tape.

Solutions?

BTW it is a Navman 6100

Thanks

Bruce

warranty replacement, if you are going to keep the radio then I'd consider using some commercial spec Velcro instead

Similar thing happened to me yesterday, making good progress into a lumpy head sea there was a crack and something came loose. Unfortunately it was my front tooth! I'd managed to nut the ss grab handle on the console, can't tell you how it looks cause wife and kids dissolve into laughter every time I show them. Dentist at 3 today!

Thought you would like that one!

What wrong with the stuff you can get down at your local DIY store?
