Inside Garmin Dakota 10

Recommended Posts

I pressed the button too hard and the button fell off.  Does anyone have a picture of the microswitch that is soldered on the circuit board inside a Garmin Dakota 10 or 20?  I would like to know which part fell off.  

Thanks

I don't think it's a microswitch.

I suspect it's a comparatively low-cost momentary button similar to the ones found in the old Atari joysticks

Take a look at this image

It's probably not a user servicable part.

Just open it up and look.  They are all simple enough to work on.

Ok, I managed to get an Etrex 20 and believe that etrex uses the same switch as Dakota.  Does anyone know what the switch is called and where I can get it from?  (I did find a similar switch available from Russia on eBay, but prefer to find something in North America if possible)
