Hi all,

the way i over came this problem was to use the unit in the same as a car,simply fix and wire up a female cigarette socket,plug the unit in,in the same way on your dash / fixing point ,then part the speaker and solder a female plug for your ear plugs,you can get all of these parts,@ any good electronic store,and a soldering iron from B&Q,dont forget to fix your unit in some way ,so it doesn't jump out of it's holder, Good luck

Garmin Quest antenna broke of while quading need new antenna where to?


The best thing I can recommend is shop around on Ebay and hopefully find a basketcase Quest or Quest 2 with the antenna intact. Swapping the antennas is fairly easy. Lay the GPS display side down and remove the two endcap screws on the right side. Pull the old antenna out and to the right and replace it with the replacement antenna. Another option you may try is purchasing an external patch type antenna that can mount remotely and plugs into the back of your Quest GPS. Garmin WILL NOT sell you a replacement antenna. They want you to send it to them for repair and will charge you $100+.

My garmin quest will not come on even when powered by the car cradle. It flickers for a brief second, then fails.


This sounds like an old battery that has deteriorated to the point where the external power won't even turn the unit on. I have a fairly detailed description on FixYa of how to replace the Quest battery. Search for something like Quest Battery. It does involve opening the unit up. If you are not comfortable with the inner workings of electronic equipment, you will need to return it to Garmin.

"Detail maps Don't Support Routing" in Garmin Quest


I too have a Garmin Quest and yesterday felt like throwing it against the wall because of the above problem. I found the solution eventually. When you download the maps from the Garmin Maps page, where you select the maps download, make sure that the checkbox to "Include route calculation data" is ticked before downloading your maps. Also make sure that the total memory required for the number of maps selected does not exceed the available memory on your Quest. If you try to fit more information into your Quest than it can receive then you are bound to have some problems. The Quests seems to have different memory specifications. According to the USA spec the memory is only 128mb, the Garmin site says 115mb and the box that my Quest came in says that it has 243mb.

Garmin quest won't swith on.


The Quest charges on about 5 volts you have to plug the cigarette adapter into a 12 volt souce, the adapter then converts it to 5 volts. If you splice 12 volts directly into the mount the quest will not work because you burn up the circuits or the battery.

Screen froze up


"If your Quest locks up....on rare occasions, your Quest may freeze or lock up. In this case, reset the Quest by pressing the unit's Power key and the IN key at the same time. This will turn off your Quest. The unit will operate normally when you turn it on again."

Garmin Quest GPS problem


Hello,

I got the exact same problem and I solved it. The problem was a bad contact between the flipping antenna and the unit.
On the back of the unit, removed the two screws on the right side, beside the flipping antenna.
Take care there is a spring that can fly away.
Remove the part that was holded by the screws.
Removed the flipping antenna (pull on right slowly).
On the antenna connector on the unit, there is a ring. That ring was loose.
Tight it.
Put every thing back.

It solve the problem on my Quest 2.
