Question about Garmin GPSMAP 4208 GPS Receiver
Same problem here. The 4208 appears to have an over-heating issue that turns off the NMEA 2000 network which contains the GPS 17 antenna. Cooling the heat fins on the back of the unit turns the network back on, suggesting a design flaw.
The question now is to determine WHY the unit over-heats.

Make sure all three T-connectors are connected and that you connect the YELLOW cable to the last one. This yellow cable will need to be connected to power. Then you will get GPS link up.
