Question about Garmin GPSMAP 276C GPS Receiver
My 4+ year old Garmin will not find a single sat. This has never happened. Nothing shows up in the sat bar window. I have tried:
1. Removed batt, press buttons, wait, reinstall batt and hit pwr button
2. Pressed Quit & pwr buttons together to pwr up
3. Swivled the antenna back and forth and then hit pwr button
It says it is acquiring but there is nothing showing in the window.
Going to give you a possible solution but i don't think you are going to like it. The problem sounds easy and being as the unit is way off warranty you may or may not want to try this. Sounds like what you have is a broken wire in the antenna or a bad connection, you might MIGHT be able to fix this by opening up the antennae portion of the unit and see what you can see, broken wire or bad connection will have that result. Cleaning of the connector or re soldering of the wire should/might fix the problem. Hope this helps
