I installed a ComNav 1420 three years ago. Last summer it quit. Took to the dealer I bought it from who sent it to Vancouver to fix. Diagnosed the control head to be water damaged beyond repair and would I please buy a new one. Since the control head is sold as "waterproof" I sent several emails to ComNav pleading my case for a free replacement. I did finally get a new free one. Total time:5 weeks.
