    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.

winterizing rv's and boats and big pools/fountains is what im very busy doing this time of year , so first let me say there are companys out there that's all they do ! look in your yellow pages 4 them \

now some of the services they preform are , drain and flush out all the black and grey water tanks/lines , flush and refill with foodsafe antifreeze the fresh water tanks , using this same liquid purge all the piping to all the water fixtures including toilets , add a rubber protectant to the tires (if has any) regrease and ck all wheel bearings / and wheel brakes if it has any , disconnect and seal all gas pipes from fuel tanks , boats need to have there oil changed and there engines anti freeze topped off , rv's /boats need to have there generators oil changed and there antifreeze topped off/replaced , all food needs to be removed from storage bays (even under seats) and last but not least a seal of some kind needs to be applied to entire outside to prevent animal/pest /water/ice intrusion we use polyester plastic as it can be heat shrinked to fit tight

My garmin gpsmap 182c works when I have the consol tilted on my boat but the turns off when I tilt the consol back down

Possible loose socket connection or power wire broken inside power cable. Bend the power cable with your hand while the unit is on and try to reproduce the problem

Transducer loses bottom at any type of speed greater than trolling. Worked fine last year with all the same setttings. All I can think of is , maybe the battery is low. The boat just came out of storage...

Check the transducer for any damage on the front part. Also make sure there isn't any damage on the bottom of the boat that is causing air bubbles to cross the face of the transducer. If it works at slow speeds there is definitely something causing air bubbles.

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.
