Gps

Took the old new rib out for first time on Sunday on the strait,but gps failed to work? First time this has happened,after investigating a little I noticed the cable has been squashed behind the a frame bracket and bolt,the frame was removed to fit new tubes and they didn't notice the cable when refitted,question is,can I repair with male and female connectors or have they got to buy me a new one,it's one of the small garmin dome shaped one
Thanks for any input

You should be able to join them either with connectors, or solder would be better, as long as they end up water tight.
they are only wire's, nothing special about them.

If you can get to the damaged area (with a foot or two to work with), you may be able to carefully peel the outer jacket, and insulate the wires individually. Liquid electrical tape would do well, or barring that, create a block of hot glue and embed the wires inside. That would keep you from having to solder the three or four wires individually.
