    The missus has managed to wash my combat trousers with my Garmin in the pocket and as you might have guessed it's stopped working.

    So I'm in need of a new SatNav and would appreciate any recommendations based on manufacturer and screen size. I've been quite happy with the Garmin 1410 before it drowned.

    Thanks

    First keep in mind this:
    New firmware looks for digital signature in maps, unlocked maps don't have it.
    You can find on forum some"patched" maps for new protected devices, but till when ? and not all.
    Devices with protected firmware: Nuvi 55/56/65/66/25x9/26x9, zūmo 590, GPSMAP 64, Edge 1000.

    You have to navigate to get to the good.

    Oh M8 that is funny "after the fact" and I guess it depends on what device model it was as to how water proof it was and what type of washing machine, I have an OLD type Garmin and it's water Proof enough and should survive a Tumble type washer less than 60c degrees, maybe. Hope these nice peps can solve your problem, I will watch and see the info coz one day mine will break and need a replacement.
