I'm not sure what you mean by "cannot get the sounder to power up". Are you not getting power to theGSD20, or are you not getting the sounder to display on the screen? I can probably help you with this but I need some more information.

If you are getting power to the GSD 20 sounder, it will have a flashing LED next to the cables that plug into the GSD 20 box. What color is it and what is the flash pattern (how many flashes, and fast or slow?) When you power up the GSD20 does the color or flash pattern change.

I'll watch for your response here.

Where you plug in to charge is broke


Hi.

If you broke the lighter socket on car dash, replace it.

If you broke the cable replace the cable. Here the spare:Garmin Power Cables

If you instead damaged the power socket on your Garmin, call the Garmin number listed in the owners manual. The Sat Nav must be sent to Garmin for repair:Garmin ' Contact

Next time use a Suction Mount Windscreen Holder

Regards.

Hello,

Be sure to update the firmware by running the Garmin WebUpdater.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

It is not necessary to unplug the vehicle power cable as the unit will shut down automatically if the vehicle power source is not supplying power after the vehicle is turned off. If the vehicle power cable does continue to supply power, then a manual shut down can be done with the power switch on the nuvi but it is still not necessary to disconnect the vehicle power cable.

The GSD 22 is discontinued. I would not buy any electronics that are discontinued, because there has to be a reason.

If I were in your shoes I would be looking a full change to either the brand leaders, Raymarine or Humminbird. I have had Humminbird since 2007 with a 798SI and since 2014 with a 998SI HD. 100% reliable for GPS and depth. Boat used twice a week May to October. The 998 has features to set a chart course and I do that when coming from Toronto to Port Credit. Humminbird also do full chart plotters, but in Georgian Bay, I wouldn't have thought necessary unless you use an auto-pilot. Uses Blue Chart maps.

You aren't the only one to have problems. Read the link below.

I did find this thought and there are others in the thread
http://www.thehulltruth.com/marine-electronics-forum/146766-installer-i-stumped-garmin-problem.html

Make certain that the transducer(s) cable is separated from any engine power cables. When those wires cross or are bundled together, the highly sensitive sonar signal gets polluted with high amp noise bleeding off the engine wires, and you're lucky to get any signal.
To test if this is the problem, shut your engines off and see if you get a good sonar view. Then start the engines and see if the same sonar quality is displayed. If it degrades, you've got the current bleeding problem.
I had this problem when I installed the new gear (Furuno 585, Airmar b60) and ended up re-routing the transducer cable using some "wire hangers" to keep the transducer cable away from the others. Now I get a firm fix on the bottom at all speeds and the only time the display gets lost is when I reverse the starboard engine, from air bubbles under the thru-hull.

Hello,

First, I would suggest you reset the unit,if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your garmin nuvi, I think its out of date and needs to be updated. Follow the procedures below on how to update your garmin nuvi:

1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB.
2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: "http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 "
3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults).
4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.

Also, in case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Concerning the parts, you can order for the adapter from this amazon link; http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B004AL7B7K/randomize0d-20

For the USB, visit; http://www0.shopping.com/garmin-usb-cable/products?IVD=1

Or contact Gamin via email or phone and request for the Adapter and other accessories needed. They should send it to you or direct you to a dealer closer to your vicinity where is can be gotten.

Visit; http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontact

Good luck.

Unable to track the bottom


I think you need to level the transducer. You have it pointed way out in front of you so that when you're going fast it is able to bounce the signal off the bottom and it comes back to where the boat has traveled to. When you're going slow you're bouncing it out in front of you but it comes back up in front of you. Sorry but I can't find a picture of a Garmin transducer. Hope this helps.

Sounder not working


Interference like that is usually caused by electrical noise. Does it happen when everything else on the boat is turned off? If the answer is no, then you can isolate the source of the interference by turning things on one at time. Follow your transducer cable and make sure it has not been damaged or altered in any way.

Also make sure that your gain is set to auto

The GSD 21 has an LED indicator light on it. If it detects a malfunction the LED will flash in distinct colors or patterns. In the troubleshooting section of the owners manual there is a list that explains what each flash pattern means.
