Dead etrex.. can I get my waypoints?

My faithful old Garmin etrex died last week, after 5 years of horrible abuse. It won’t turn on at all, and I’d sure like to retrieve the hundreds of waypoints I’ve gathered. There are beaches, wharves, coves, lighthouses, bluffs, points, commando campsites etc. that are invaluable to me and our paddle group. Does anyone know if it’s possible to pry them out of the corpse?


I believe that you can get them back. You may have to send it back to Garmin to do it.

I lost my battery cover, you part with yours?

Not just yet, but…
I lost mine too, emailed Garmin to ask them how much for a new one. They sent me one gratis right away.

Try it!
