I just installed a Garmin
GWS 10 wind transducer
and a GMI 10. Installation
was straight forward and everything worked as advertised.
The problem was on the 3 rd day after installation
I notriced the wind vane
was missing upon inspection
I found it on the dock
. Beleiving that maybe I had jarred it loose going up the mast
I reinstalled it making shure that it was on all the way. Two days latter it was gone again and no where to be found it could have went in the water
or into some ospreys nest. I talked to Garmins tech poeple and received no help. Yep it just snapps on and they told me that had not heard of a lot of problems where the vane had come up missing. They could offer no help as to maybe using a epoxy
or super glue to hold it on. When buying
a replacement on the internet
everyone had them on back order. Does anyone have a fix for this, I dont want to install the new vane unless I can insure that it will stay. I'm getting too old to keep going up and down the mast
besides it cost $36 at WM or Garmin
. How do I keep the vane on. How can I keep the ospreys off.
