Best bet is to purchase a unit for parts on eBay and make sure it has a working antenna. Search for Nuvi Parts As is.

One of the male pins on the unit for the antenna broke off. Is there a part that I can get to fix this, maybe the whole male pin unit is one part?


Hello, is the broken pin on the back of the unit or is it on the antenna cable plug? If it is on the unit and not the cable, you would most likely need to replace the connector that is attached to the PC board inside, which extends through the back of the case. This would require knowledge of soldering / desoldering pc boards, etc. and would be best performed by a "bench technician". There are no "user replaceable" plugs available.

Garmin Nuvi 680 GPS Receiver no satellite signal


Hello,

The connection to the antenna is most likely broken.
This is one of the main issues with the flip up antenna on the nuvi 6xx models.
The unit could be sent to a repair depot, but would most likely cost more to fix than what it is worth considering the price of a new GPS in today's market.

Mazda Tribute 2001 automatic antenna is broken. Can hear the motor running but I think the cable is broken. Where can I buy an antenna mast aside from the Mazda Dealer.


If you hear the motor running, you are probably right that the cable that attaches to the antenna mast is broken. You should be able to buy this part only. Check Ebay. Sometimes you can buy the mast portion with the cable attached only. It's a lot cheaper than the whole assembly with the motor.Here's a link to one.

Replace antenna on 2003 mr2 spyder


my antenna just stopped working in my MR2 2003 Spider. The motor still runs but the antenna will not go up and down. It made a weird noise and I had to pull the top of the antenna up to stop the motor from sounding loud.

Should I replace this or can you disconnect it and push the antenna up and down?

Thanks

ANTENNA UNIDEN MYSTIC


Good News!!  I just received the email from Jessica at Uniden but when I called to place the order, I learned they are back-ordered( 550 Units) and are not scheduled to arrive until Nov 28, 2008.
So hopefully we will get them.  There is a $10 shipping charge in addition to the antenna.

Larry,
Thank you for your inquire. I apologies for the information you may haven been given. But You are able to order the antenna for this model. They part your needing is part number BATY0461001 Cost is 27.16. This part is on back order. If the jack that the antenna screws on to is also damaged you most likely can buy this part but there are no instructions on how to install it.
To send the unit in due to the jack being the damaged part. You would be asked to box the unit up attaching a note explaining the problems your having along with a check or money order for the flat rate repair fee of 59.95. This amount includes all parts labor and return shipping. The unit will then carry a 90 day warranty.

Replacement antenna and flat cable for Nuvi 370


The flat antenna flex cable is attached to the main PCB and receiver board by connectors. The top of each connector has a flap, which you pry up with a very small screw driver. This allows you to slide the cable out. To put it back in, you slide the cable into the connector and push the flap down on the connector to lock it in place. The cable will not go back in unless you lift the flap. Trying to insert it into the connector without lifting the flat probably caused the cable to flex and crack.

You're best bet is to buy an AS-IS unit on eBay that is dead or has a defective LCD screen and use it for parts to fix yours. Stay away from any units that claim to have antenna problem. I know you can buy replacement screens for the Nuvi on eBay but I haven't seen replacement flex cables.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck!

Garmin Quest GPS problem


Hello,

I got the exact same problem and I solved it. The problem was a bad contact between the flipping antenna and the unit.
On the back of the unit, removed the two screws on the right side, beside the flipping antenna.
Take care there is a spring that can fly away.
Remove the part that was holded by the screws.
Removed the flipping antenna (pull on right slowly).
On the antenna connector on the unit, there is a ring. That ring was loose.
Tight it.
Put every thing back.

It solve the problem on my Quest 2.
