    I need a control knob for my Garmin 696 GPS.

    I called Garmin and they sell a bag of 10 for 25.00.(Part#430-00035-10) No Singles.

    Does anyone know where I can find a single knob at a reasonable price?

    I have called Sportys, AircraftSpruce, and two avionics shops with no luck.

    Just buy the bag of 10 and sell the rest on eBay

    Is the knob split, or lost? Suitable adhesive + small black cable tie tightened around the outside, go fly.

    It is split in multiple places. The plastic/rubber is falling apart so hard to glue together.

    10 for $25 is cheap... I figured Garmin would sell for $35 each!

    Good point but I’d would prefer to just get one knob and be through with it.

    They are! I have a radio shack down the street... My local hardware store has tons of plastic knobs also.
