Unfortunately Lowrance is no longer repairing the iWay 500c model due to lack of parts. You may try calling them at (800) 324-1356 and ask if i's repairable. They may offer you an upgrade to the newer iWay 600c for a reasonable price. Well it's cheaper than a new iWay anyway...

Unfortunately there are no parts or repair manuals available outside Lowrance for any of their models.

Hi. My Garmin sat nav will only charge for approx one hour, then stops charging altogether when using the car charger, if i use the usb on my pc it will charge fully, also it will charge fully when...

From your description I suggest purchasing a new car charger probably a weak component in the charger itself. You can get one at Garmins website at but I think you will find one much cheaper on Ebay.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please leave me some positive feedback.

My gps is frozen and wont turn off

Try holding the power button for 10-15 seconds, and it should shut off, or possibly reboot altogether.

Garmin Stopped working altogether

Try connecting the GPS to your computer with the included USB cable. If it charges this way then you can assume that the Charger is defective.

Garmin will fix or replace a defective GPS within the first year. Go to then click on the support tab. You can follow the menu selections to obtain warranty support.

Was working then randomly and then stopped altogether

you will need to reset the unit by pulling off the face plate. once you unplug and power off the unit, hold the reset button down for 5 secs. after you release the reset button, power back up the device and it will be normal.

Unit will not charge

Call tech support at 866-486-6866. If you bought this unit within the last year, something will be done. In the mean time you can charge the unit via the USB cable, it will pull power from there.
