Darren,
Thanks for this info, I wouldn't have known about until PGPSW mentioned it. My 765T is on the recall list. Did the email to Garmin, got the info about returning my unit, together with a downloadable returns label by UPS. But there is no mention of how to get UPS to collect it, or am I having a 'Silver Hair Day'.

Garmin email quotes..."Return your device for service.

When shipping your device, only include the device in the box. Please do not include any accessories or cards, as they will not be returned.

Place your device in a box that will provide adequate protection against damage during shipment.
Print and attach the UPS shipping label enclosed below to the outside of the box."

And that it !!!

Normally you'd call UPS and arrange collection OR drop it at your nearest depot if there is one nearby?

Thats fine for city dwellers....20 miles to the nearest depot is crazy...Looks like a collection job for them then..
Seeing as its only going to Southampton, I'll drop it in to them next week as its only 3 miles from where I deliver to daily.
Still not very clear on the Garmin website though !

I was hoping my 760 was on the list. It needs a new battery Idea

Curses, foiled again.

Like Stuart, I too only found out about this from you guys, so thanks!

Garmin's instructions do stop short of the whole story, pack up the unit, stick on your label and then...........what? Carrier pigeon?

I didn't take any chances and called them to confirm what to do with it - in my position how am I to know what shipping arrangements they have made with UPS? Since I want to see my unit again I thought I'd check!

I was impressed with the response from Garmin, even though the person I spoke to got the wrong end of the stick entirely and launched into a spirited lecture on how to pack a box - get some bubblewrap and sticky tape etc and put it all together.

For those interested, the number I used for UPS was 08457 877 877.

Cheers,

Rob
