Wanted: Dead Garmin Edge 500

By danielschipper - Posted on 21 October 2014

So I had a stack with a new barfly Garmin mount and the damn thing was too strong and broke the mount on the back of my edge 500. I can still mount the edge but it's a bit loose so have taken to holding it on with a hair tie.... And it's going to fall off at some point.

So wondering if anyone has a dead Edge 500; smashed front screen, drowned in water, etc that they want to get rid of. I'm hoping I'll be able to pull it down and put my device into the case to restore it.

PM me or reply to this message if you can help.

I have a spare one with a small scratch you can have for $100
(all working fine)

I know someone with a similar problem. You might be out of luck trying to change the back though. Apparently there is a sensor glued to the back of the case which you will likely break if you try to replace it (the back).

Yep, I've already taken one apart ready to swap the guts but as Rob says, I think the Barometric pressure sensor is well glued into the back of the body so looks like it's impossible to remove without trashing it.
I learned the same way.
Barfly mounts sate no good on Mtbs!
