Delete the tracking the unit has stored for all your trips...it has probably used up all it's memory to 100%.. It won't erase your waypoints, just the tracks. Worked for me

SOURCE: I have a Garmin GPSMap

Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble. Unfortunately, it would be tough to find the parts or even a similar used camera. I tried searching down with major vendors as well as ebay and unable to find any used one. I doubt if any local repair shop would have the parts or could arrange it with the distributor. The only possibility would be either using the way it is or buying a new one. The only other alternative i could suggest is to contact the below :-

Go to contact us and find the link for them.

If they cannot help you with repair, i doubt anyone else could do.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Garmin 168 Sounder LCD screen display errors


I had the same problem and contacted Garmin. This is being caused by a software issue that started when the government updated the software in their WAAS satellites. The Garmin website will give you instructions on how to correct this but I have listed them below:

Power on unit
Press enter to get past the I Agree screen
Now you should be on the satellite page, press the menu button one time
Highlight WAAS off and press enter
By doing this, the unit should not shut down.

I followed these instructions and my 168 Sounder is working fine.

Dark area on screen


If it's a circular area you might be delaing with magnetism. Check the menu and there should be a control for geomagnetic correction and adjust accordingly.
