My Gps isn't receiving satelite transponders. I'm not sure if I need a new gps antenna or if the problem is with the unit. Someone told me that there may be a reset to re-boot the unit if so is that true?

I have used the Gpsmap 178c for about 3 years now. Recently I have started be unable to find satelites, wass on or off. Once in a while it works. presently I get no satelites I would buy a new antenna...


Based on the problems I have seen with this unit the problem is the reciever circuit not the antenna, so you should consider a new unit, Garmin charges a fortune to repair these.

Loeses satelite recption


Few reasons this may occur, most you can do something about.

1) Make sure the battery is fully charged before commencing journey ( USB or mains charger)
2) Plug the GPS in after the engine is started to protect the delicate SIIRF chip.NEVER Start engine with GPS connected.
3) Ensure you have a clear uninterrupted view ofd the sky. Place the GPS closer to the windscreen if poss and away from Phone..stereo or other electronic devices

4) If your unit supports it get an external antenna to plug in ( magnetic base mouse antenna)

5) check BAUD and PORT are set correctly.

It does not aquire satelites, a new aerial has been fitted and everything else seems ok.


Check voltage at the plotter antenna outlet. It should be at least 5 Volts .if not you have a blown internal fuse

The GPS claims that the transponder is not communicating. All cabling looks fine and there is no apparent damage to the head.


Normally this error shows that something is wrong with the antenna itself. If the unit is old it's best to change it out. most gps antennas are only good for about 5-10 years. unless you have had a lightning strike close by then less. The other thing is to make sure that you don't have the internal gps selected in the menu and that you have both terminators on the nmea 2000 network that the LGC-2000 is connected to.

Raynav 300 the gps is not working


The GPS antenna with the 300 is not a GPS receiver unit like all the later Raymarine units and is no longer made. However the unit will accept input from a GPS receiver with Seatalk output. So you could use a 112, 120 or 125 receiver.

Finedrive 400 problem


first make sure your atenna is connected properly and that the pin in the antenna side of the connector is not damaged. if this looks fine, try using the reset GPS function, to get there, get into the menu, touch exit (top left of the screen) and click the green exit button, then from the mater menu, select setup and reset GPS.
leave the system on for about 5 minutes, it should re-adquire. if not, then you have either a faulty antenna or an internal problem. you can find external antennas on ebay.
