So I managed to open my GB-580P with a razor and some gentle pulling. I confirmed I have the same issue. In fact, I can pull the pin on the left side of your pic cleanly out of the circuit board (but for some reason, not the right pin even though it's similarly loose {almost as if it were attached to something on the other side of the board}).

1st image shows I can cleanly remove the left pin.

2nd image shows what appears to be a mounting plate behind the GPS antenna. This might be what the GPS detaches from when in use. I use this GPS solely for mountain biking so it sees A LOT of rattle. I would probably try to attach it using some glue that adds a small amount of damping (i.e. cocking or similar rubber based adhesive).

Unfortunately, I don't have a torx screwdriver small enough to remove the board. I'll try to acquire one to do more digging. Are those two pins and the corresponding holes/connectors the method of connection to the gps circuitry? I'm hesitant to solder the connectors and glue the gps onto the mounting plate without confirmation. If someone could upload pics of the backside of the circuit board that would be awesome!

P.S. If you want to send me a GB-1000 for beta testing, I'd happily comply. I work as a Quality Engineer for a major auto manufacturer and have extensive experience with teardowns and quality reports.

My GB580P also rattles inside. There seems to obviously be a problem. I just opened the case on my unit ant the antenna is not soldered.

Should they be soldered or just glued so it doesn't rattle?

Thanks Gerhard,

so, probably not worth updating. I still use mine every other day and am happy with it.

Only one little thing annoyed me in the last 2 months: twice on some long workouts (5hrs biking) it corrupted the activity header upon saving. Thus, couldn't download the activity nor look at it on the watch - only solution was to "delete all" (and obviously loose those 5hrs).

Anyway, will use it until it breaks and then see what's around (in absence of further development from Globalsat, maybe Fenix2 or Ambit2?)

I have already forwarded this issue to our engineers.

I will let you know when it's resolved.

Hello, yes you get this message because of the update from the firmware. Globalsat made a mistake there, and we have to wait till they fix it.

Hello..finally i bought a t5 screwdriver from a hardware shop downtown..I had the xt model with me so i would check the tool on it..As i said in my previous message the xt model belongs to a friend so i dont have it now so i could put it side by side to send you a photo..There is no need to do this now that i found out the solution to my problem..Of course if global sat had already provide such tool in the package with the appropriate instructions in what it does we wouldnt put our selves in such situation..You should have informed in the specs of xt in the website about this important matter that occurs in every 625 watch..Is is very sad when you find yourself breaking the plastic and having no spare..Thats what happened with my 625m...It might get water very easily cause there is much sweat when we run and it will surely get damaged...Thats all for now..I will wait for my friends first impression when he complets a workout with the xt...Then i will get back to you again...

Hello zahoulio32,

I'm not sure if I'm 100% clear in what you're looking for. Would you be able to provide pictures of what you're referring to?

Maybe a side by side of the GH-625M and GH-625XT?

Hi Albert,

The new software doesn't solved the problem by updating the device settings.
I know, we have to wait for Globalsat to correct it!!!!
The rest is working OK.

Still there are problems by updating the device settings, it doesn't work

That is due to the firmware format is changed.
I added a note that this save/restore may not be supported at firmware updates.

Hello,what type of screwdriver should i use to fit the type of screw that holds the plastic that covers the charging input??In the previous model gh-625 (which i own) i bought a t5*40 and it fit perfectly so every time i want to charge my watch i unscrew and remove it safelly that way...To share to you my bad experience about the gh-625m..The 2nd time i tried to bend the plastic that covers the charge input it broke in front of my eyes...So i glued it cause i didnt had a spare plastic..And im using it again till then without problems no harm done..So now i bought the gh-625xt from memoryc for 96 euros total and it arrived to Greece yesterday morning!!We are very happy to find it in such price...!!
It is actually for a friend who is a runner like me and i suggested him this watch which is better than the 625...Good thing is that there is a spare plastic included in the box so in case the first one is damaged we should remove it and use the spare..But why should we worry of breaking it and instead you guys help us to find the exact tool that will fit and remove safelly the plastic so it lives longer and the watch remains in good condition???thank you very much!!  p.s.the t5*40 tool doesnt fit the screw of 625xt cause the screw is bigger than the tool...
