Looks good. Does anyone know how to purchase from the UK? Their own website only allows the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

Email them and they will do mail order and you can pay via bank transfer

There is a new cable from Garmin for the xt. People who swap there original cable receive this one.
First pic is original, second the new cable.

So I assume the small upstands on the side of the new cable enable the cover to sit on more securely with less effort and therefore alleviate the problem of bent/broken connectors ??
