Respect.  I’m still hobbling along on my avmap geopilot ii. I’m sure it’ll die one day.

From experience avmap support in oz is poor and give the IV was retired and replaced with the V you are likely left with replace or attempt to get it repaired independently  eg the spotty goth running your local phone and tablet repair store.  My local guy is called Callum 😛

G'day Lyle, that "toggle" is a mini "joystick" and I think the Avmap people would be the only source for replacement. I've had no probs dealing with them in past , but spare parts ....hmmmm!

If you end up replacing with something else I'd be interested in the panel mount dock or I can do a deal on mine as a replacement unit .😝
