Question about Garmin GPSMAP 3010C GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Turns off on it's own.

When the unit gets too cold or too hot, it turns off right after it is turned on. Also, when I turn it on, it goes to the license agreement. When I push "I agree" it turns off. It is pretty chronic.

By the way, we have 10 of these and they all are just as temperamental.

Any ideas?

I am aware of an issue that caused random shutdowns when a button is pushed. The most recent software version is 5.20. It should show up on the bottom of your start up screen. If you don't have the most recent version a software update may solve the problem.

To get the software update, click this link: Garmin 3010 update
You need a blank Garmin Card and a card reader install the update to your GPS, or you need a PC interface cable.

Another thing that can cause the GPS to shut down is when the power drops below 11.2 volts. If the engine isn't running, and the batteries are not strong, extreme temps could be affecting the output of your batteries. Or perhaps there is something else in your electrical system which is causing fluctuation in voltage.

I mention this second alternative because you have so many models that are having problems. They are pretty reliable units and I wouldn't expect to see so many fail at once, which leads me to believe that the source of the problem may be outside the GPS

Hot waterer tank goes on but no hot water


Water heater must be FULL of water first. Be sure to bleed all air out of hot water lines all throughout the unit. Check water in heater by purging the PT valve at the top. (The one with the little lever). If no water comes out, there is no water in the heater. You can't heat water is there's none in it to heat!

We have an rinnia infinity 26 instant gas hot water system which has just recently installed (2months ago). It started working fine but started to produce hot water for five minutes until today it has...


This is operated by a flow switch, when you open a hot water faucet it turns on. There is a small filter in the cold water inlet on the Rinnai located just below the cabinet on the cold water line. It will unscrew and you can clean it out after you shut off the water to the unit. Make sure there is flow through the cold water line and out the hot water line. If that gets you nowhere, you will need to connect an MC control to the unit to get the error codes. Make sure you have flow through the unit and the gas is turned on to it. You will be able to hear it trying to start as an assistant turns on the hot water while you are in front of the unit and cover off. Look through the small viewing port for any spark or flame and see if it stays on or quickly goes out. You can remove the ingiter flame rod assembly and clean off any debris stuck to it with a soft brush. Not much you can do to it. It's like a newer car, you will need a technician with proper tools and experience with these units to be able to repair it. Your installer should cover this under their warranty and any parts needed will be under Rinnai warranty.

Water heats, then turns cold


These units need lots of flow to start and run. Set the temp on the unit lower and the people in the shower will have to use more hot and less cold which will make the unit more stable.

Our water keeps fluctuating between hot and cold. The hot water will not stay on. It lasts about 1 minute and then turns to cold. After about 2-3 minutes it will get hot again?


The inlet line to the water heater goes to the bottom of the water heater to prevent the cold incoming water from mixing with the heated water at the top. The tube going to the bottom can come loose.

Turn the water off and relieve the pressure by opening a faucet and remove the fitting where the water enters the heater. You can see if the pipe is still connected.
