Navman repairs

My Navman has gone blank, power is good, but dead as a dodo, did start to get a bit of water/condensation in recent weeks after much ribbing, anyone know a repair shop for Navman Trackers?

aah now there's a surprise. Search this forum for threads on Navman and their "waterproof" equipment. Mine is off the boat and on the garage bench for ever as it didnt seem to like going out in the rain any more than I do. Cant do with equipment I don't trust in my job. Mr Garmin was out in driving wind and rain with me last week and got us home nicely thank you.

well no brackets are the same but new mounts usually cover most of the holes left in the consol. Get a plotter with an integral aerial to cut down on wiring to an uneccesary external aerial (unless you want to build it in flush with the consol which I would not personally recommend). Search the 'net for prices but ensure that whatever you choose comes preloaded with charts for the areas you use as the chips are an added expense. My last one came with all uk,Ireland and northern europe preloaded.
