There should be an adjustment for the display brightness. try looking in settings for this adjustment. Keep in mind the brighter the display the shorter the battery life.

SOURCE: gpsmap 180 firmware corrupt

It sounds like it has lost its memory battery. Usually you
would get a "memory battery low" message as it is on its
way out but you don't mention that so perhaps it has
completely failed.

The battery is rechargeable - if you leave it switched off
and loaded with a fresh set of alkalines for a few days it
may recover. If not contact Garmin as they have replaced
many memory batteries free of charge even out of warranty.

SOURCE: can the garmin 72 gps bought in usa be used in europe and are

Both solution #1&2 is correct. The GPS is a global system and with correct use of datum it will always show you the correct position. Units with preloaded maps can normally not be updated with a new area. The 72 Marine however has no preloaded map (at least not in Europe).

SOURCE: The screen on my garmin gps is dark/black but there is sound

Let the battery totally die, pressed the rest button and then charged the battery fully and then turned it on. The screen came on and it is working just fine now.

On the GPS Garmin the radar screen shows our boat turned the wrong way. How do you turn the boat around on screen?


My husband moved the boat slightly and it seemed to correct the radar screen somewhat. He is working on the whole boat at present so didn't want to take it completely for a drive down the river. If we have further problems we may call in or use the web site.

Thanks,

Farrar

A dark screen might be the result of a poorly adjusted display contrast. This can be altered by accessing the Setup menu and selecting Display.

It might be that the screen has gone dark due to overheating (was unit in bright sunlight?). If you look carefully, the screen may still be on - but very dim. Go thru the menu until you get to display and try to reset it to a brighter state.
