Re: shaft

It is not recommended to cut the transducer cables as they are sensitive to outside interference.  Most trolling motors have adjustable shafts so you can set it at the depth you want. Look for a locking mechanism where the shaft attaches to the mounting bracket.

How do I get the left driveshaft out of a 1998 4WD Caldina

A repair manual would be beneficial for the details but briefly the suspension usually has to be partly dismantled and the outer end of the shaft freed from the hub. Once the outer end of the shaft is free, if it is a floating shaft it will just pull away from the transmission. If it is held in by a circlip it must be levered from the transmission. Sometimes a special tool makes the job easier but it can be difficult and an experienced technique has more success. Often it is a matter of creeping up quietly and taking it by surprise with a hefty lever and/or a large hammer and a long drift.

Beware of escaping oil when the shaft is removed and take care not to damage the oil seal. A few drive shafts are bolted to a flange at the inner end which simplifies things a great deal.

Youtube might have a video showing the procedure.

it could be the internal antenna is broken.
Have you tried installing all the firmware updates on the device from the gamin website.
They have done quite a few and it is possible one could improve sensitivity.

Do i need to do anything special when I store the sky caddie SG5 until next Feb. In particular I'm curious about the battery. Don't want to do something to shorten it life. Thanks. Lou.

Just make sure that you're keeping it indoors in a climate controlled environment if possible. Charge it completely and then store it and you should be fine.

Yes, so long as the locking flap hasn't been damaged or lost.. They can be replaced but its a tricky job. I'd let an expert do it.

Magellan Triton, continues to get fatal application error. What can be done to correct this situation?

Your problem stems from a corrupt software file in the internal memory of the GPS. Unfortunately, the problem is too complicated for you to solve. I really do not know of any people beside Magellan that repair the 200. The Jungle Ghost repairs 300 400 500 1500 and 2000's and maybe he can help you out. Check with

Uploading an image onto a GPS

If you mean t5hat you want the GPS to interprete the coordinates of youre line drawing the answer is no. If your GPS allows for the viewing of pics and videos then loading it into the picture folder is definitely possible. But it will have no connection to the mappping ability or the coordinates.

Keeps recalculating route and rerouting

This may or may not help you.  If you are in area where the unit cannot get a signal it will tell you recalculating or if you are in area where it's maps are not up to date it may tell you the same thing. One other possible solution, shorten the trip, on a long trip the unit will/might find several possible routes and based on your settings it is unable to select just one route so it is choosing between two at the same time and it will keep recalculating until circumstances allow it to decide on just the ONE route.  Change some of your settings in the setup screen and see if that helps or if it is a long trip, break the trip up into smaller segmants. Hope this helps

The gps doesn t charge and even it manage to do so , it turn itself off immediatlly

It is most likely that the battery is totally sogged! That is you need a new one. Cease placing it in the car charger and starting the car when this is connected. A) it shortens the life of the battery and B)damages the satellite search chip.
