Garmin 4208 hard drive swap

I have two non functioning G4208's. One with a bad hard drive (per Garmin) and the other with a bad touch pad. I would like to swap the good hard drive to the other unit.

Could someone tell me which printed circuit board the hard drive is on. None of the circuit boards has anything on it that looks like a hard drive.

Re: Garmin 4208 hard drive swap

Did they say bad hard drive or bald hair line?

There is no hard drive in any MFD.

You would be better off attempting to replace the "touch pad". At least you know what it looks like.

LMAO.

Customer: My 4208 isn't working
Garmin: I have a bald hair line
Customer: What? It has a bad hard drive?
Garmin: Yeah...hard drive.

Toss the Garmin nonsense and fall in love with OpenCPN.
