Garmin Edge 605 Repair

Discussion in 'Bicycle Mechanics and Repairs' started by willhub, 12 Aug 2012.

  1. I've got a 605, the screen has gone on it (turns on all I get is a white screen), and the battery is flakey, so most of the time it won't turn on anyway.

    Anywhere that does repairs, anyone that knows roughly how long it might cost to actually fix it and if it's worth it?


    Cheers.

    no screen and no battery !! its bust - i would guess that parts and labour would cost alot and you would still have a old unit ! i would think about replacing it - but get some quotes first just in case the repair is viable

    Second the Garmin approach.

    Why pay lots for a new one if you can get a more serviceable unit for a fraction of the price, especially when the 605 has a sharper screen than the Edge 800 and also transmits data which the 800 won't.
     
  5. I dislike the 800, 705 is much better.

    I only use the former because of the OS mapping,
