    That was suppose to say "...without the radar even operating..."

    Batteries are fine, everything else works and both engines start with no problems.

If its possible for you to detach the parts of the unit and put them back to together that will be good to make sure everything are really connected fine..

. You can try a hard reset: Unplug unit from power mains and remove all cables from unit. Wait about 30 minutes and replug unit to power supply and redo the cabling. Switch on the unitand see if it still displays same message :


If it still displays:

We have a garmin gps map 4012 and on radar just says radar error


This is a marine chartplotter and radar unit! I thought I didn't recognize the model :>) Check the connections are the rear, but more importantly to the connections to the radar dome.

The manual is here, but doesn't mention errors. You could of course contact Garmin direct.
