Customer Question

I have a Garmin GPSmap 496. I recently tried to turn in on after it had not been used for 6 months or so. It would not come on. Expecting a dead battery I connected a charger. Still may have turned on but the screen was so dim it was unusable. Bought a new battery, installed it and connected to the charger, but the screen was unusably dim as before.

Hi Bruce I am Tech Michael, I would like to call you about this problem to helo you quicker. If you agree and want me to call, Just ANswer has an offer form, I will keep the cost to $5.00 for you if that is ok, its the least they let me charge lol.

I am only a tech and don't control that end of the business.

But I should be able to help one way or another.

Please accept the offer and include your phone # ***** I will call.

If not, we can work this out on here, either way is fine with me;-)

Thanks Bruce.

Tech Michael
