I need to have USB jack on my Garmin 1490LMT repaired. I tried using Sharcnet-USA repair request, but it doesn't seem to operate. Anybody know how to contact them?
I agree their website's Request A Quote option, which you need to start the repair process doesn't seem to do anything. I did find that you can message them through their Facebook page if you wanted to see if there was any response that way.
Thanks, I went into Facebook and put in a message for Sharcnet-USA. We'll see what happens.
You can try sending an email using their POI Factory contact tab.
Just be aware that the cost to repair may be more than a new GPS might cost. You'd have to decide on that.
Yes, I had been thinking the same regarding an old 1490. One thing also to consider if deciding to proceed with the USB socket replacement is that if the 1490's battery is still the original, this would be a good time while the GPS is already opened to replace the battery.
I agree that the cost may not be worth it especially if the battery is weak like CraigW mentioned.
Mini-USB Charging Jack Repair / Replacement
REPAIR/REPLACE-USB-Nuvi 11xx / 12xx / 13xx / 14xx / 24xx / 25xx - Mini-USB Jack Repair - $35.00 USD + Shipping.
GPS Battery Replacement (Installed - All New Batteries)
REPLACE-BATT-Nuvi 14xx - Battery Replacement, 3-wire Standard-Capacity - $29.00 USD + Shipping
And even if you are willing to pay the price of repair, you still have an 8 year old device that is woefully short on internal storage and gets the puny junction view file with map updates. It might make more sense to put the investment in a newer device.
You're quoting 2 individual repairs and not combo discount repairs.
