    You can upload maps using the SD, storing maps fro computer (with SD reader) and putting SD on garmin.
    Best thing to do is getting the garmin fixed. A broken serial prt may lead to shorts and additional problems on your GPS.
    Check the last pages of your manual or call one of the following repair shop in Boston:

Where do I find a 6 pin serial to usb adapter for the Garmin 421s? I can't find one anywhere on line. Does Garmin sell one? It's Saturday and Garmin's help center is closed. Their on line...


Hello,

The 6 pin DIN plug found on the GPSMAP 421s data/power cable (Garmin part number 010-10918-00) is used for the sonar input.

Data transfer from the GPSMAP 421s is easily transferred by memory card.
Information about data transfer on the 421s is at about 50 seconds into this video.
http://www.youtube.com/gpscity#p/search/6/8ddIgvCAUmI

Real time NMEA data can be transferred using Garmin part number 010-10918-00 wired to a DB-9 serial connector (Instructions are on the cable).

It then can be adapted to USB using a serial to USB adapter.

On my Garmin GPS maps 60 csx there are no


This happens to about 1% of the units I've sold. Sometimes the GPS antenna software reverts to version 0.00 which of course is nothing. Check in the GPS by going: Menu > Menu > Setup > System > Menu to see the versions installed.

Use Garmin WebUpdater (free from Garmin web site) to reload the software and update if necessary - they bring out updates a few times a year - it's all free and very easy to do using WebUpdater.

GARMI GPS 498


I would contact Garmin and get their price for a repair. Navigation is too important to trust to a repair that may or may not be correct. Just go to http://www.garmin.com and click on the support tab.

Thanks for using Fixya.com

Serial number


Pull off the battery panel. In-between the 4 pin connector and the battery compartment you will find an 8 digit number.

Note the serial number is different from the unit ID which can be found by using the Garmin Mapsource software tools, or by going to:
Menu >> Setup >> System >> Menu >> Software Version

Problem downloading maps to my 76csx


With unit off, press and hold ENTER and PAGE while powering on to perform a master reset.

Doing a master reset will erase and data in the device and restore it to factory defaults. So if you have any waypoints/tracks/routes you may want to back them up first.

You may want to update your mapsoure software first and see if that helps the issue. If not reinstall the software.

oh and double check your micro SD card to make sure its not damaged and is inserted all the way in.

Garmin 178C Boots up then shuts off


Check the pins at the connector on the back of your unit. Make sure one of them is not bent or broken off. One of the pins on mine is missing about 1/16" of the tip. My boat repair shop says it's the power lead, but Garmin wants $200 for a generic repair.
