Your pictures don't show. Can you repost them? My 595 has no where to attach a lanyard.

Thanks

I looked at my 595 and figured that would be the only place to attach a lanyard and decided against it. The little handle comes off with the battery cover so I'm thinking if the device did come loose with my luck I'd save the cover and lose the gps.

The handle has to be turned 1/4 revolution for that to happen and it takes some force when doing it. I doubt that would happen if it came out of the cradle.
