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+.

I have a Garmin 3600. When I want to use the GPS feature, and I open the antenna, all I get is Acquiring Satellites, but nothing happens (the little indicatior on the bottom shows activity). I thinkthere...


If you can obtain an external antenna from another IQ3600 user it
will plug into the connecter on the top of the unit and bypass the fold out antenna. I had to buy one because the windshield in my Pont Montanna would block the satalite signals. When I plug in the external antenna I do not have to fold out the antenna on the unit.
That will check to see if the unit is recieving and /or if the fold out
wire is broken. The external antenna is not Garmin specific but the
plug on the end is so another gps antenna with the same end plug works.

you should see it now
There is a known hardware bug in the Garmin 600 series relating to the detection of the connection of an external antenna. The GPS is supposed to do this automatically and when it detects an external antenna plugged in it switches out the internal antenna. Unfortunately, this circuitry doesn't work correctly in some versions of the unit and sometimes it get's comfused and thinks there is an external antenna connected when there is not. This causes the behavior you describe because, for all practical purposes, there is no antenna connected.

Garmin can fix this and they've been known to fix it even on units that are out of warranty. There is a fix that can be done by someone with the right equipment and know-how which requires disassembling the unit and bypassing the antenna switch. Not to be attempted by anyone not experienced in micro surface mount PCB re-work.

Gps garmin nuvi 660


Please read the solution that resolved this problem for someone else. Most likely, you have already tried this. However, the antenna of your Nuvi 660 is the same as the 3xx Nuvi series. I know this because I have worked on them.

If the above procedure does not work for you, the entire antenna assembly will need to be replaced.
The other option is to purchase an external antenna for your Nuvi and plug it into the external antenna port (gold connector) on the Nuvi antenna assembly.

Best wishes,

Garmin Nuvi 360 - Acquiring Satellites


Did you check to make sure that it is not in demo mode?
I've seen complaints that the unit is not working, and it was in demo mode.

If everything is set up properly and it still does not work, you will most likely have to send it to Garmin in the US.
