Compass area warning decal ... where to buy?

Simple question but I have wasted too much time already searching for one.
I have moved my rc42 to a new location and want a sticker to indicate its location. The original one tore apart on removal.
Any suggestions?

I see your point - after a quick eBay and Amazon search, they just don't sell them. You could just use a Dymo label maker and print a warning sticker to put on the cabinet. I've found my label maker as essential as a winch handle on my boat.

Dymo labels will certainly work, but they aren't as fashionable as some <admirals> demand If you want a really nice label, see almost any commercial sign maker and have them make you a nice one in a suitably bright color.

Why not contact the manufacturer that (presumably) included the first/original sticker with the unit and see if they can't sell you another? Alternately, fine a shop that makes adhesive trim/signs for vehicles and they can cobble one up for you in short order, such as AutoTrim Design

FWIW...

Rowglide-
There are shops online that start around $10 for a 4"x4" vinyl sign, your choice of artwork and colors, made to order. You could use any of those.
Or just print up what you want, and then apply "cold laminating" plastic over it, and stick that down. Cheap and easily found in stationery stores.

Most shopping malls in the US have a vinyl decal/sticker kiosk that design and produce them while you wait for just a few dollars. Not sure about Canada.

Another option is an engraved plaque. I get them done all the time, usually red with white letters but you can get any color combination you want. The typical ones that I get are around $15.00 for say, fuel valve direction guide.
