Question about Garmin GPSMAP 162 Sounder GPS Receiver
I purchased by gps 162 at West Marine in Port Huron Michigan about 4 years ago. I sold the boat and all the equipment to my nephew who sails it over in Lake Ontario. Storing it for the winter, the antenna which was hooked up on to a stern rail was struck by a gate pole as we drove through. It knocked the antenna underneath the rail but suffered no apparent damage at the time. First, the gps gave readings which were out as much as 5 miles. Now it is not showing any Lat or Lon readings, speed and several others. It also shows a message but I can't remember at this time what it read. I have encountered several sites that show other owners having similar difficulties.
We need to know whether or not the antenna might be kaput or do we need to send the entire unit for repair. Is their a Canadian location here in South Western Ontario that does repairs. Incidentally I am on the way to Florida on Jan 1 or 2 and wondered if their is anywhere there where repairs are carried out.
Finally, if all else fails I guess he (nephew) might have to send it back to the factory.
My nephew's email is email@example.com
