Rino 530 chx

I have a garmin 530 chx and it has worked fine for a while, but for some reasons it seems to be stuck on receiving mode. On the radio page instead of reading Ready to transmit in wichever mode, i read activity on the channel. I have tried all available channel in the gps with the same results. what could cause this? I am curently unable to send or receive any transmission on any channel

If it is posible to, which it should be, go to menu, then setup, then units. Use the position frmt field, your best bet. Hope this helps!

Are you carrying a cell phone with you at the time? A cell phone can interfere with these units. You may want to call Garmin to ask questions on this problem. They are very helpful and professional.

I have Garmin Rino 530HCx, when I turn it on a strange screen comes on(software version, ESN, ......)iT THEN WILL NOT GO TO ANY OTHER SCREENS.It also will not turn off(have to remove battery to turn off)


It seems that the contact of your ENTER/ROCKER key are stuck. Try cycling the button a few times with a few gentle jerks. Or, if you are ready to take the risk, open up and clean the contact yourself.

Rhino 530 no signal


I have a 530 which was intermittently receiving sat signals for about a day then it quit. I disassembled it and found that the circuit trace that connects to the GPS antenna had cracked at the edge of the solder connection. I added a short jumper on the trace and that fixed the problem. Note: very fine soldering. Not for the novis.

Garmin 530 gps radio


I am guessing that the unit is out of warranty. if this is the case go to http://www8.garmin.com/support/outofwarranty.html to handle your repairs. while I have not personally sent anything to Garmin, I don't expect you to have any problems. Garmin is a highly recognized company for both thier products and for there service.
