    Never mind, I see that is is a Garmin 182C. This product has been discontinued, and finding replacement parts might be difficult.

    If I understand correctly that the damage occurred to the receptacle on the unit itself (not to the plug on the antennae), I believe the whole unit will have to be repaired or, more likely, replaced by Garmin. The receptacle is not an interchangeable part that is made to be serviced or repaired.

    If it is just a matter of bent pins, try readjusting them so that they fit the plug once again.

    If it is more serious damage, you can open a support case with Garmin to get service for your unit.

    Garmin also provides in-warranty service, but since this unit has been discontinued for longer than Garmin's one year warranty period, I assume that your unit is out of warranty.

Gpsmap 182c

My 182C developed the same problem. It appears to be a problem with reading data from the card. When I power up the unit, sometimes it will display "Reading Card" for a long time and no data will be read. I've found that if I open the latch and push in on the card as I press the power button, it will only then display the number of maps loaded. Sometimes less than other times. Most times a lot of data is not loaded from the card causing the problem frankcps describes and other problems, such as no data for tide stations, anchorage, etc. I tried cleaning the contacts on the data card & where it plugs in, but still continue to have the problem.

No power

Could be worth a look at the connector on the back of the unit itself. As I discovered a few weeks back, they aren't as saltwater resistant as the IP67 rating would lead you to expect. Compare the pins in the plug with the diagram on page 99 of your manual (also downloadable from and make sure all the pins that are supposed to be there actually are. In particular, make sure pin 15 is in a decent state. This one carries power to the unit, but will act as a sacrificial anode in the presence of saltwater, and can rapidly corrode to oblivion. If this is what has happened, you have a bit of a problem, because Garmin, don't appear to be very good at making spares available. I was lucky in that the GPS I was fixing was a lower end model that only used five of the seven pins in its connector, so I was able to rewire to provide a supply through the unused pins. The diagram suggests that the 198C also sports a few unused pins, so you may well be in luck. A.
