Question about Garmin GPS 12 GPS Receiver
I'm not sure how, but two things happened: Firstly, I dropped the receiver (from about 2ft), and secondly, I erased all the waypoints and track logs.
Since then it will do everything bar pick up any signals. There are no reception bars at all (my etrex picks up signals so I know they're out there!). I've tried re-initialising but no luck there either.
Is it possible that the internal antena has come loose, and if so, how do I fix it?
I have exactly the same problem and will have a look inside myself as I am told it would be cheaper to buy a new unit thas]n send it in for repair.

Sometimes it could take up to 10-30 mins with the GPS turned on and in a clear sky veiw , also not moving -like just laying on the porch or dashboard of a car to re-aquire sats and it datum table.
If that does not work, to fix the antenna would mean prying the unit apart to access the connection on the board.
