Title: WTB Rubber antenna cap for garmin rino 530hcx
Post by: 71Shovelhead on December 04, 2020, 11:07:47 AM
The rubber antenna covering on my Rino 530HCx has cracked and is deteriorating and I would like to replace it. I believe the part number is 145-00528-00. After a lengthy internet search it seems that this replacement part is no longer available.
If you have one or know where I might find one I'm in need of one. Or if you have a non working/broken rino I would be willing to buy it or the antenna covering.

Thank You

you might contact Garmin and see if their repair shop has parts from broken or returned GPS's

I tried contacting Garmin first. They no longer support these older models. Asked about service returns and they repeated that they no longer service these older models and don't store parts for discontinued models.

Sometimes you will find parts for these on Ebay. If you have a account there put it in so you will get a notification if one happens to show.

I have a 530hcx with three lithium ion battery packs I might be willing to sell.
