Full Answer

While the repair or replacement is free of charge, customers are responsible for shipping costs. Garmin's limited warranty doesn't cover cosmetic damage, such as dents or scratches; batteries and other consumable parts, unless the product was damaged due to defective materials or faulty workmanship; damage resulting from external causes or acts of nature; or damage due to unauthorized service done on the product. The warranty also doesn't cover damages caused by power connection or use of third-party data cables.

To get warranty service, a customer should contact the Garmin product support department or a local Garmin-authorized dealer to receive shipping instructions along with a return merchandise authorization number. The device serial number, a daytime phone number and a return shipping address are necessary required to get a return merchandise authorization number.

The customer should pack the defective product properly and include a copy of the original sales receipt. The outer part of the package must display a legibly written tracking number. Finally, the customer should send the device and shipping payment to a Garmin warranty service station.
