Question about Garmin Quest 2 GPS Receiver
I own a Quest 2 and have had periods where I am unable to find satellites with a clear overhead sky. I feel sure it is in the antenna contacts but have not been able to remove the antenna to clean it. How does the antenna come off?
You will need a small phillips head screwdriver. Turn the GPS unit over on its face with the back and flip up antenna facing you. There are 6 screws on the back holding the two halves of the GPS together. With the Quest oriented so the hinge of the antenna is away from you, carefully remove the two phillips screws on the right hand side of the back of the unit. This holds an endcap of the unit and the flip up antenna in place. Be VERY careful in removing this, as the antenna has a small spring putting tension on it and this spring will easily pop out and get lost. The antenna should easily come out at this point. If you look carefully, on the left side of the antenna, you will see the swivel for the connection. There is a spray called DeOxit used by radio repair people that does an excellent job of cleaning contacts. If that is not available, use a Q-tip and some isopropyl alcohol and gently clean the contact areas of the antenna and where it plugs in on the chassis. Allow the alcohol to dry or gently blow it out with air. Reassemble, (don't forget the spring), and it should work just fine.
