Check the battery contact points inside the unit. There may be a thin film of crud (oxidation) that prevents contact, especially if the previous battery had any signs of corrosion.

Satellit 800-batt blinks w/new Duracell alkaline batteries.

Have you checked the voltage on the new batteries.??? Some batteries, even if they are new... have a short shelf life, if they aren't used. You will need a volt meter or battery tester...if you dont have either, take the batteries to a Radio Shack or even a Auto store and ask them to check it for you.

Frequent low batt

Check to see if the manufacturer recommends a specific type of battery such as a lithium ion or Ni Cad - Nickel Cadnium.

I would have everything tested first. Thats usually free at most auto part stores. It does sound like your alternator is starting to fail or possibly your battery.

276C not locating any sats

Going to give you a possible solution but i don't think you are going to like it. The problem sounds easy and being as the unit is way off warranty you may or may not want to try this. Sounds like what you have is a broken wire in the antenna or a bad connection, you might MIGHT be able to fix this by opening up the antennae portion of the unit and see what you can see, broken wire or bad connection will have that result. Cleaning of the connector or re soldering of the wire should/might fix the problem. Hope this helps

Gps 276C doesn't charge fully

Garmin has updates for this issue on the website but it doesn't fix all the units. Mine for example still does the whole "charge complete" thing when showing 1/2 a battery. The funny thing is I let it drain and the unit stays on for about 10 hours after it says the battery is dead. Garmin is working on a new fix and they said it should be up in about a week.
