Garmin 2610

I've been using a Garmin 2610 for almost 2 years. I like it.
There are two things about it that keep it from being the perfect GPS for me. First, the CompactFlash card has vibrated loose twice. All I had to do was reseat it. Second, dust accumulates on the screen especially in the corners. Twice this has caused the touch screen not to work. To fix it, I had to use a damp paper towel and a sharp object small enough to get the dust out of those corners and from the edges of the screen.
Other than that, no problems.

I concur, my 2610 has served me well and should continue to do so for a while.

I successfully use a swab (Q-tip) for the corners and a micro fibre cloth both with Isopropyl alcohol.
