Can 2610 LCD Freeze ?
The Specifications for my Garmin 2610 lists an operating range of 5 to 158 degrees Farenheit(-15 to 70 degrees Centigrade).
However, I'm wondering just how cold it can get outside before I have to remove it from my truck for fear of the LCD freezing, cracking, & subsequently being destroyed.
I called Garmin but could not get a straight answer from their Tech support line. The individual kept stating that the battery was the main concern, then he acknowledged that there was no battery in the 2610(?)
Does anyone ever had a GPS display crack and/or freeze in cold weather ? Was it a 2610 ? Does turning it on when very cold pose a particular risk ?
