Are you not able to charge your beloved Garmin Edge 1000 anymore ? We can help ! Please read on....
This is a great GPS/ cycling computer. But- as you may have noticed- sadly it has a major flaw: the micro USB connector. This connector gets damaged often. And when this happens your Garmin becomes useless. The battery eventually runs out and you are unable to charge it and use the device ! Even worse, this micro USB is not available anywhere !
We are in the repair business and we always try to find ways to save your device and save you money. Luckily, we are now able to fix this problem and bring your Garmin back to a perfect working order. We use the same type connector, so you can continue to use the same charging cable. However, it is a bit smaller than the original. Therefore, we do a bit of modification inside the unit to make things work as they should. Your Garmin will look and work exactly the same and you will not notice these changes as long as you do not open the device. We use the same procedure on other Edge models like the 520 and 820 units. Needless to say, you will void our warranty if you open the device.
We receive units from other shops that attempted this repair. In over 90% of them the repair was a disaster. In fact, some units were butchered so badly that we were unable to save them. The "techs" who attempted to replace this connector had no clue what they were getting into. Frankly, I sympathize with them. Garmin constructed this unit so that repair logic would not apply to it If you are not very familiar with this unit, please don't even try. You will ruin it. Put it in expert hands and relax. Do not just take it to a computer or a TV repair shop. These guys do not know this device, and most likely will decline the repair anyway. Let us put your Garmin back on your bike and on the road again !! Please fill out the form below to contact us and click on "Send Message"
This is some good advice if you own one of these.... Use the micro usb gently and do the best you can to prevent water from getting to it. Water can cause havoc and even damage the main board inside the device. Also, NEVER use sharp objects or your nails to turn the unit ON/OFF. You will certainly damage the power button. This button is not replaceable by itself. You will have to replace the whole back cover and that will involve very delicate micro soldering inside the unit. In other words, it will cost you !
