Garmin Foretrex 401

Garmin Foretrex 401

The rubber flap over the usb port on the battery compartment of my 401 has failed.

It always looked like it would I have to say.

Does anyone know where to get a replacement battery compartment which would include it, or have an old 401 which perhaps is in other regards faulty and unwanted ?

No luck with Garmin and don't fancy a beaten up old one for £40 or so from AliExpress China which is the only option I've found.

Really want the unit to be reliably watertight.

Don't know about Garmin 401 but googling gives the following which may be of use ?
