Question about Garmin GPSMAP 182C GPS Receiver

Open Question

Gpsmap 205/210/220 I own one of the subjects which garmin has discontinued repair/parts. In searching I found that gpsmap 182c is comparable. The part I need and cannot find is on the back of the unit. It is round and features a plastic cover when not connected to a cable. It has 7 pins in it (one of which has broken and why I need to replace it)

SOURCE: Garmin 205 W has been discontinued and webupdater

I find that hard to be true. The manufactuer just came out with updates for the Nuvi 3xx and 6xx this month (Aug 09) and those models are older than your Nuvi 205W. When you mean updates are you referring to firmware or maps? Either way, even the discontinued models are still being supported with firmware & map updates.

If you are having trouble getting your unit updated, please let me know and I can help you with this.

Did you try to purchase new maps version? My Nuvi 350 is a discontinued product but I was able to purchase the new 2010 NA maps for it online last week.

I have Garmin Gps map 210 saying searching the sky i just put a new garmin ga29 antenna still wont work

I have the same unit that is having screen problems. I have been unable to locate parts for this unit. I was told that there are no parts available for these units. I am looking to buy a screen that will replace mine. I am trying to find the specs so that I can find a manufacturer with a unit I can fix my GPS with. Or, if you are interested in selling yours at a decent price, let me know.

Gpsmap 182c

My 182C developed the same problem. It appears to be a problem with reading data from the card. When I power up the unit, sometimes it will display "Reading Card" for a long time and no data will be read. I've found that if I open the latch and push in on the card as I press the power button, it will only then display the number of maps loaded. Sometimes less than other times. Most times a lot of data is not loaded from the card causing the problem frankcps describes and other problems, such as no data for tide stations, anchorage, etc. I tried cleaning the contacts on the data card & where it plugs in, but still continue to have the problem.
