SOURCE: not receiving information

The same thing happened to me, and I'm just hitting the two-year mark with this thing. I tested it using the aux speaker leads and that still works. So it is only the little front-panel speaker that is broken. And I checked the leads on that little speaker, and they seem fine. So it is the little speaker itself that broke. Easiest repair is to connect the aux leads (red and brown) to another speaker.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a UNIDEN Solara DSC Fixed Mount VHF

It sounds like your speaker has failed. I would recommend replacing the speaker. You can take the radio to a marine electronics repair shop for the repair and it should be about $75 - $100. If you have any other problems please email me: You can always send it to me and we can repair it at my shop.

SOURCE: When connecting a GPS to

In order for the radio to send these received coordinates back to your Garmin GPS automatically, a NMEA out line on your Radio and a NMEA IN line on your Garmin GPS would have to be connected. The Garmin has this line. The Uniden does not. So, in order to see where these received coordinates are on your GPS, you would have to manually enter them in the GPS as a waypoint and display the waypoint. Without this NMEA out connection, the radio can not send the data to the GPS, which is why you will not see any DSC calls on your GPS call log.

How to wire Uniden UM380 to Garmin 2010c for gps reading on radio

Garmins have USB or Data connectors - or both
obviously radio needs one of those inputs.
radio must be setable for Garmin format. If NMEA only verify Garmin is set to output NMEA - some do not have that option.

My Solara Dsc radio, which has worked well for several years, suddenly began blowingthe 2 amp fuse on the red power line whenever the transmit button was pushed on the mic. Why?

No worries here.
According to Uniden, the 6 amp fast blow fuse is the correct one.
Not entirely sure why there'd be a 2 amp with your old radio, but I suspect the radio is good.

How do replace the face plate/mic assembly on uniden oceanus dsc

I realize this question has been around for a long while, but with the price of a new radio being so low, I can't imagine why anyone would be bothered with trying to source the part (spendy...) and try to repair the unit.

Welcome to the age of disposable electronics.

Please could you supply me with the service manual for a Uniden Solara DSC. Thanks The radio was tested and is transmitting well, however it doesn't seem to be receiving. Suspect the problem lies...

It has been my experience that Uniden won't part with their owners manual cheaply. As a matter of fact, you can probably pick up a new radio for less than the cost of a manual.
Welcome to the world of disposable electronics.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help to you.
