Mio Cyclo 505 Questions and Answers

Question: Do you have any spare parts for a Mio Cyclo 505? the locking ring at the rear of my device has sheared at one of the fins and is now loose.

Answer: While we sell accessories for the Mio Cyclo 505, we don't sell parts such as the locking ring.

I would recommend you contact the manufacturer Mio: http://www.mio.com

Subsequent comment: As it's now out of warranty they wanted £70 to repair it... May end up making a new "fin" myself and trying that.
