Question about Garmin GPSMAP 172C GPS Receiver
This season my unit began powering itself down. It usually works for about 40 minutes then it shuts itself off. When I restart it stays on for about 5 minutes then shuts down. After this it tries to initalize then shuts down. If you have any ideas about how to fix this or where to send it (Garmin no longer does out of service warranty work for this unit) I would appreciate it. Thank you very much.
the receiver stays on for 2 - 5 minutes and then suddenly powers off.
Does it do this when on battery mode?
or when its plugged in?
i found they do tend to drain quicker the older it gets and that just because of a week internal battery.. i just leave mine plugged in to the cig lighter in my car and i dont have that problem but if you have to use battery power it will drain fast no real fix unless you get a new internal battery and its much easier to just leave it plugged in.
