That didn't take long to get a reply looks like there are other sailors out there thinking the same way!
I would be really interested to have a look at your Ticktack.
Send it to me and I will see how I get on. Don't worry about me charging you. If I can fix it I will just ask you for the cost of the battery and postage to send it back if not, well it isn't working anyway!. Send me a text for my address 07963405516.

I can send you one for a new battery.
There was a company in NZ doing it.

Good on you-I agree 100%. This attitude is everywhere, we need to fight it! Why chuck stuff away when it can be fixed?

I recently dropped my Tacktick and cracked the display, when trying to find a repair agent to buy some spares from I was suprised to hear from the importer that they are not repairable and no spares are availiable so I need to give them 200 for a replacement.
As I run an electronics repair shop I thought I would take it apart and surprise surprise it looks very repairable to me. I have a replacement display and will try to fit it but this got me thinking.
I hate this attitude from manufacturers, in our company we try to repair all our products even those made in the 90's so I would like to have a go at repairing a few Tacktick's. If you have one that has stopped working please get in touch. Like most of these devices I suspect they just need a new battery and re-program but until I have actually fixed a few I will not know.
