Why does Garmin nuvi 1250 power on but dim to almost black when plugged into power outlet?

Make sure you have your time and time zone set to match your area. Also look in display settings to see if it is set to night mode versus auto adjust.

Ais and 1920c Furuno chart plotter

n the system setup, under “UNITS” I set BEARING to “MAG” (magnetic). This will cause the unit to display course / bearing information in relation to the Magnetic North and match magnetic compass readings. It is not the same as True North! One has to be careful with this setting. There are a number of areas where the earth's magnetic field is locally disturbed, sometimes very significantly. Your GPS may not account for it. - again, under “UNITS” I set “METRIC”.

I bought a used sky caddie from a friend. I can not connect the skycaddie to my computer as the plug will not match.

Hi there.

SkyCaddie usually comes with a USB or Firewire Connector or Cable. If you computer does not come with a FIREWIRE port, you can buy a Firewire to USB adapter.

Which model do you have anyway?

I got a raytheon sl70 pathfinder gps that wont get a fixed signal the antenna is wired right but there dosent seen to be power comeing out of the cord that leads to the antenna. what should i do ????? i...

If you're using a raystar 125 antenna, you will have to power the red wire + and the shield wire - separately. Sl70's don't provide power over seatalk. Also make sure your green and brown wires are properly connected. If it's a 120 just power the red and sheild(black) and leave off the all except the yellow that's your data. If you still have nothing may probably have a problem in the antenna itself.

Plenio vxa-2000 antenna pinout

If you are looking at the external connection end with it in a "V" position, on the right - the upper one is green & the lower one is red. On the left - the upper one is yellow & the lower one is black (or the big bunch of copper wires). Be sure you are reconnecting an exact pin set up - an s-video is not the same (unfortunately). If you found a replacement antenna or a correct replacement part, please let me know where. I have to repair mine too.

Replacement of the 10 year lithium back-up battery

Pry it apart along the edge with an exacto. Be careful around the antenna where it is circular.

Get a new battery to match and a battery holder from DigiKey.
Solder wires to the new battery holder and secure it at an angle up by the antenna with white silicone making sure that the case closes. Get the + and - right when you solder.

Test the unit then secure the case with white silicone in a small bead.

I have a 520c gps and fish finder, got it last summer, only been used about 7 times between last year and this year. Now all of a sudden the gps, doesn't show any satilites except one, and it won't lock on...

The problem is most likely in the antenna.

Have you installed a RADAR? The GPS will not acquie a saellite unless it is above or below the bea emitted from the RADAR.

The easiest thing to check is corrosion on the plug where it attaches to GPS.

Look at tour satellite status page. Is WAAS turned on or off? If it is on try turning it off and see if that makes a difference. If the GPS acquires with WAAS turned off, you probably need a software update.

Next follow the antenna wire to the antenna and look for any signs of damage, particularly where any new accessories have been installed. It is also a common point of failure if the cable is stressed near where it enters the antenna.

You may be able to convince your friendly local marine retailer such as West, Cabala, or Boater's World to let you buy an antenna for test purposes and then return it when you are done. You don't have to snake wires all over the boat, simply place the antenna somewhere where it has a clear view of the sky and plug it in.

If the antenna is not the culprit your next step would be to check your software version which appears when you start up the display. If it is not version 2.3.0, get a blank MMC card and download a software update from Lowrance at this link:

It should include intructions on how to install the update.

If that fails, your only option left is to box up the display and antenna and send it out for service.

Won't turn on

Fixed it! Ok there are two tiny screws at top of the antenna that you can just barely see or get out.You've got to get them out first.Then I removed my antenna by applying a thin screw driver to the left side from rear view(near power button )and a black cam with a spring in the middle popped out. You may not have to remove the antenna itself -I don't remember-see if you can skip this step.Once the 2 screws are removed you can unsnap the unit. The screen portions two cables can be left plugged in, but you need to remove the antenna cable/connection at this point.A little black strip should be rotated upwards and the cable will come free, Later when putting back together place cable in assy and push down small black strip till it locks the cable in place again.Next remove the one large philips screw that holds down the board so you can pivot it forward. Once you get the board pivoted forward you'll see a small connector with red and black wires coming from the battery,all I did was disconnect it for 10 seconds or so,plugged it back in, pressed the power on button and after I did,the unit came back to life! I then very carefully put it back together and checked everything! so far so good! Good luck
