Question about Garmin GPSMAP 430 GPS Receiver

Open Question

My glide slope seems to be intermittent. I had a problem with this for quite a while until my avionics shop finally realized that I had not received a mandatory software update. However, it happened again recently. Two times going into PBI, my home base, the localizer worked fine, but the glide slope never kicked in. A few days after the second time, I went into Nassau (MYNN) and it worked fine. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: will not come on or only for 1 second

It sounds as if the battery is not charging. Leave it connect to a turned on computer overnight and try it after a full nights charge.or about 12 hours. Let us know if this doesn't work.

Thanks for using Fixya.com

SOURCE: I'm trying to the free update to my garmin nuvi

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Sorry, no free maps. I know I've tried. You either live with the old map or buy the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOUR Garmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.



Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

SOURCE: NUVI 260 lethargic, navigation guidance and map take 15-20 minute

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Good explanation you gave. More than most do.
Make sure you have the latest nuvi "Firmware"
then update the maps. I would start with making sure you have the latest WebUpdater on your computer before you proceed with any updates.

If a nuvi 200 is has an older version of system software glitches may occur. The device may be missing letters or have jumbled letters or displaying duplicate letters or strange symbols on the address screen. To correct this you will need to update the system software of your nuvi. You can easily do this by using Garmin’s WebUpdater program:

  1. Click the following link to download the WebUpdater program: http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
  2. Follow the on screen prompts from the website
  3. Choose RUN/OPEN
  4. Follow the on screen prompts
After the program has been installed it should run automatically. If it does not please use the steps below.
To run WebUpdater:
  1. From the Start menu, click All Programs and find the Garmin folder
  2. Click WebUpdater
  3. Connect your nuvi to an available USB port on your computer
  4. To search for an available update, choose NEXT
  5. As the program automatically finds updates, choose NEXT to load the update. Once the update is complete, you can search for other updates such as voice languages, Bluetooth, and Traffic Receiver.
  6. Disconnect the unit to ensure it powers on.
Take your unit outdoors and keep it in a stationary position with an open sky view until it reacquires satellites.

SOURCE: Can't find State or Province

I found my manual. Go to menu settings and and the bottom of the screen touch restore. It will restore your gps so it reads city/state and you can program for the address you are going to.

Intermitantly working v2 rangefinder


Had the same problem with my first Bushnell V2 (Slope). Worked intermittently and sometimes just quit altogether. Finally had to send it back to them. They sent it back and said nothing was wrong with it. I called them and told them they were wrong and I was sending it back and they should take more time in testing it. This time they acknowledged problem, said it was fixed and sent it back to me. I wound up getting a real good deal on the V2 without the slope calculator (necessary if you want to use it in championships). Used this one for some time with no problem, but now it just went dead again. Battery tests well into green area on meter, but I'm going to try a brand new one and see what happens. From all the things I've read about the V2 and battery life, it looks like you might need pretty fresh batteries to keep it going.

Similar situation as previously described with the Denon AVR-1508, but mine will shut off after about 10-12 minutes the first time around and then ~2 minutes after it is turned off and then back on. Unit...


Most new receivers have a fan on the back, if you have one check to make sure it is working, most won't activate until the unit gets warm, other issues are bad solder connections on the audio outputs causing intermittent shutdown, as a final inspection check speaker connections to the receiver and speakers.

My radio transmits fine. Until recently it received fine. Now it transmits but it does not receive. I've played with the squelch and volume. No luck. Can you advise.


Your finals are fried. Take it to a shop and they will fix the finals. Before you do that be sure to put in an extension speaker just to be sure. Most CB shops are inexpensive.

When I set up my new Onkyo TX-SR806 receiver in my home theater system I took advantage of it's HDMI video switching capabilities and ran the HDMI cables from my DirecTV DVR and my LG Blu Ray DVD player...


Overview: I?m writing this report to provide insight into a common Okyo issue. When my Onkyo receiver began to malfunction my first response was to search the web for answers. What I fond was conflicting information. While all system issue may be unique, I hope this report shed some light on the subject. System Breakdown: Receiver: Onkyo TX-SR606 7.1 Channel Home Theater Receiver (Black) TV: Samsung - LN52A750 - 52" LCD TV - 1080p Broadcast: Comcast Component 1: XBOX 360 Elite Component 2: PS3 120GB Cables: Mediabridge Ultra Series - 10ft High Speed HDMI Cable - Version 1.3 Category 2 - 1080p - Blu-Ray - PS3 - W/ Nylon Sleeve Issue: When I first setup my Onkyo receiver it worked perfectly. Over time, my TV would display ?Searching for Signal?. After about a few minutes the receiver would detect the XBOX 360 and work fine. At first it was no big deal until the problem progressed. The receiver began to take longer and longer to detect the signal from the XBOX 360. Finally it would take up to 30 minutes or would not detect a signal at all. Finally I went through the process of changing out the HDMI cables and switching ports. This did not work, so I call Onkyo. They walked me through a reset process that did not work. Finally they recommended that I take it to an approved Onkyo repair shop. Lucky for me there is a repair shop in the suburbs of Chicago about an hours drive from my location. There are not many approved Onkyo repair shops. Most people would have to ship their receiver to another state. I took the receiver to the repair shop. They seem to have a nice little scam going on? Here is the scam.. They tell you there is a 3 to 4 week wait time (or longer) until they can even look at your receiver! BUT, if you want to put it on the ?Priority List? you can pay a $30 non refundable fee not covered by your warranty. Then you would only have to wait about a week. Tell me, who would not op for the priority list when your entire entertainment system is managed by the receiver?!?!? So I payed the $30. About 4 days later I get a call from the repairman. He says, all the HDMI ports work but they don?t have an XBOX 360 to hook it up to. So he can?t validate the problem. After arguing with him for an hour and listening to him cry about how crapy Onkyo receivers are and how hard the company is to work with, he agreed to do some research into the problem. I told him many times, simply look on the internet many people are having the same problem. Onkyo has to know something about this. Finally about a week later I get a call from the repair guy. He says he thinks he knows what the problem is. He has to order some capacitors and I could pay $45 for priority shipping. Umm wait one minute, I already paid $30 for priority service now you want me to pay more for shipping? No thank you! Over time I simply rewired my system to work without the receiver and to tell you the truth I almost forgot about the receiver. Finally I got a call from the repair shop about 2 months later saying I could come pick up my receiver. I talked to the repairman. He said the following? Solution: There are 4 capacitors that malfunction over time. It?s a common problem with Onkyo receivers. When the capacitors begin to malfunction you get intermittent signal response until it does not work. He could not explain why the cable still worked (everything was hooked up with HDMI cables). If you are experiencing this problem. I hope this helps save some time switching out cables and guessing why your system is not working. - Antious
