This is a common problem with the 14xx series. The problem is caused by a loose USB connection to the board inside. To learn more about this issue, please see the following link:

It randomly loses power while Im riding. Sometimes the power comes back automatically and other times it does not. Could it simply be the battery? Or one of the connections? Sometimes the problem starts...

I had a similar issue with a Garmin V mounted to the handlebar of my ATV using a RAM mount. I wonder which GPS you're using and how you're using it?

After determining that it only happened on the shock-prone ATV while riding trails, suspicion turned to the internal batteries. You didn't note your GPS model or application so I don't know specifics for your problem - but I wouldn't feel uncomfortable suggesting that it is an intermittent power connection. If the power source is an internal battery, batteries or battery pack; check the batter compartment for dirt, debris, etc. Clean completely. Next, inspect the terminals. These must be clean and corrosion free. They are often pressure sensitive connections - meaning they rely on squeezing the batteries together and press in the battery's top and bottom to get the + and - voltages to the GPS.

If the springs or clips that provide this pressure have become weakened - it is very possible that physical shock to the GPS could cause a momentary loss of power. This would result in a brief loss of display followed by a 30 sec to a minute or so for the GPS to boot and get a "fix" again.

Adjust or bend the clips or springs as needed to create greater pressure on the batteries. Some battery compartments reply on a hinged door to complete the battery circuit. make sure that when the door closes the springs are pressing down on the batteries instead of being bent off to the side with significantly less pressure.

If you can't get these suggestion to solve the problem - you could try to use an external power source to power the GPS. This would remove the entire battery, compartment, springs, etc from the "loose connection" part of the equation. This only works if the GPS offers an external power connection - like my Garmin V (and many others) GPS does. Unfortunately, most of the strictly hand held or trail GPS devices do not offer an external power jack for this purpose.

If you have other questions or need additional help, be sure to tell me which GPS you've got, what your application is when it fails and how you're securing it.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

My devices keep losing connection with the router due to loss of power in the router.

Connect the router to a UPS to prevent temporary loss of power issues. Any electronics store will carry a UPS that won't cost you a lot.

Unless you are driving in a dangerously remote area of some desert, or a large city, GPS units rarely lose signal. Chances are you have a defective unit, I'd contact Garmin support: Here.
Hope this has been of some help.

Why wont my driver side power lock work? It wont lock or unlock sometimes. How can i fix it?

It sounds like you have a lose/bad connection. If you can remove your door panel and visually inspect your connections for lose or rusted connections other wise you will have to test each connection to find out where your power loss is at.

Crackling noise then no audio at all while on motorcycle

In my opinion I suspect either a bad internal connection to the built in speaker or a faulty Bluetooth connection. Does the problem occur on both the helmet and speaker? If so, then the unit has likley had a circuit malfunction. If the helmet works fine but not the speaker, then I'd guess a broken or damaged speaker and/or speaker wire. Crackling noise is typical for broken wires or lose connections. Any decent TV repair place would be able to sort through it about 10 mintues before you have to return to for factory repair.

I am losing satelite connection frequently. Sometime for a few seconds and sometime for up to ten minutes

Hello jacke328,

In order to maintain satellite connection your GPS receiver needs a clear view of the sky. If you are operating the GPS in areas where the view of the sky is limited due to tall buildings, hills and mountains, or dense forest, your GPS is liable to lose signal from one or more satellites and this can impact the receiver's ability to determine your current location.

If you are operating the GPS inside your vehicle an external antenna may help significantly. The body of the vehicle can act as a shield, blocking the GPS's ability to receive satellite signals. This is why most manufacturers recommend installing GPS receivers on the dashboard with a clear view of the windshield as this maximizes the amount of visible sky. Installing an external antenna on the vehicle and connecting this to the GPS can help significantly, however.

Depending on the geography of where you are operating the GPS, you may have to live with an occasional loss of connectivity. With proper mounting you can minimize this, however.

Best Regards
