    Tethering a Garmin Etrex

    Does anyone'e tether their Garmin... I have a Ram mount and use it but, just in case IF it were to fall out or forced out... How and where do you tether it... I looked and all I see on the back of the Garmin is the battery door/wire (whatcha ma call it) to attach the tether to... What if the force pulled the door off? Garmin gone!! It does not float anyway.
    Does anyone have a good tethering way to attach?

    BTW: I would be using my Go Pro tether strings and sticky backs.

    Any thoughts or ideas?

    Thanks
    DG

    Dont know what your mount setup looks like but this is mine. I drilled two holes in the "arms" of the RAM mount and use a zip tie each ride so that GPS physically cannot be bounced out. 160+ hours going strong. Bulletproof.
