Fixing a Garmin Edge 305

Garmin Edge spring connector

It was time to do some surgery on my Garmin Edge 305 GPS unit.

In case you’re wondering: the image above is of an extremely tiny internal component of my GPS. All that detail and resolution comes straight out of the fantastic MP-E 65 mm f/2.8 1–5x lens, Canon’s gold standard for macro-photography. No microscope was required in creating this image.

This lens is my tool of choice for shooting small electronic components and MEMS devices (yes, I sometimes have to do this for a living).
