Question about Garmin GPSMAP 178C Sounder GPS Receiver

I had the same problem and contacted Garmin. This is being caused by a software issue that started when the government updated the software in their WAAS satellites. The Garmin website will give you instructions on how to correct this but I have listed them below:
Power on unit
Press enter to get past the I Agree screen
Now you should be on the satellite page, press the menu button one time
Highlight WAAS off and press enter
By doing this, the unit should not shut down.
I followed these instructions and my 168 Sounder is working fine.

Your only reasonable solutions are:
1) Send it back to Garmin for repair, which will probably cost you more than the unit is worth, or...
2) Check CraigsList or other places for good deals. The prices on these things have been in nose-dive mode for months and you're liable to find a very good deal for very little money. (I just bought a StreetPilot C330 for $50 from CraigsList last week.)

SOURCE: car charger fuse
The fuse is just inside the tip that plugs in the car lighter. You screw it off and out comes the fuse. As for the fuse you can go to any local electronics store with the fuse that you get out of the charger and ask if they have it.
