Is it possible to buy a new cover for the switch? Is it feasible to replace it? Other than that the unit is still working fine.

Answer: While we sell Garmin Oregon 450 accessories we do not sell the rubber cover you are seeking. Can I suggest that you contact Garmin on 0808 238 0000 to enquire whether such a part is available from them?
