Is there any way to lock the buttons on a Garmin Astro 220 unit? Tired of the buttons getting accidently pushed while in my vest pocket.

Thanks

Good question. It happened to me yesterday several times.

I scanned the owner's manual and found nothing. I have the same problem with my training collar remotes.

I don't think you can. But fyi, Garmin has great customer service. Go on their website and click "contact us" send your question and you will get a response. Or call them.

I got a return e-mail today from Garmin. The key pad cannot be locked. I may look into a holster.
Thanks for the replies

Anyone added a better map to their's? I used mine in nebraska for the first time the other day and it was just a cursor and a white background where we were. I ended up just using the compass mode.

What other features do y'all use a lot of?
