OP: How about a fly helm cover of Sunbrella or other marine material to keep the whole helm area out of the elements? (Or is security one of the issues - canvas wouldn't really fix that except for "out of sight.")
Thanks for all the suggestions.
I do have a sunbrella cover for the helm but the salt air corrosion issues still prevail through that.
Garmin is sending me a weather cap for the power cord. Not sure why they leave that one out. All the others came with a dedicated cap.
No answer from them re. whether they have available screw in female ends like are on the unit so I could dummy plug them.
Rwidman youíre right, shouldíve used something like Corrosion Block 1st.
So for now I think Iím going to use greased up Garmin weather caps.
and I think Iím just going to keep extra bags, Corrosion Block or equivalent, dielectric grease, and extra rubber bands handy on bridge so Iím less likely to neglect again.
