Wanted: Garmin USB port weather cap for my Edge 500

I too lost my weather cap on my Garmin. My autistic daughter helpfully ripped it off for me!

I just covered it with a piece of black electrical tape. Works just as well.

Thanks for the replies guys.
I've taken Venod's advice and got a non Garmin specific cap off ebay.
I'll see how long this lasts and go to the blue tac or insulation tape options if / when the new cap falls out.

Those on Venod's link are all micro-USB and the 500 has a mini-USB. Unless you've found the right one elsewhere, I'd get some blutack :smile:

Think I have a 510 one if that would fit?
Uses the same charger, before they swapped to micro

Thanks again for the replies.
I bought one off ebay which sort of does the job but not too well.
broady - I don't know if a 510 would fit so I'm going to try what The Central Scrutinizer did and email Garmin direct. I'll update this thread if I get anything back from Garmin.

Just spoken with Sam at Garmin UK who was extremely helpful, weather cap is no available for Edge500. He also checked to see if any another Edge weather cap would fit but unfortunately nothing doing.
Looks like it'll be Blu Tac or insulation tape then!
Thanks again for all suggestions.
