    I tried to hardwire my Garmin GTM 26 into my motor home, but when I cut the charger wire, I found that the positive wire was shrouded in an outer layer of copper wiring mesh. I went ahead and connected the red wire to positive and the white to negative, but there is no power flowing to the GPS. What should I do?

Lcstryper, I'm looking at my manual and you have it wired right, red power, black ground. Manuel also says to hold button down until you hear the power tone sound.

Got a meter, check to see you have power where you hooked it up.

What is the connection path from Garmin 72 to raymarine c80, using NMEA 1083


I'm taking this as you want to send the gps information to your C80 not receive from the C80? If this is the case the brown wire on the garmin is the nmea data out +. The Black wire is considered nmea out neg (-) of the garmin. So hook the garmin brown to the white on the raymarine. Hook the black from the garmin to the green on the raymarine. That means you are outputting lat/long info to the raymarine from the garmin.

My garmin nuvi 200w keeps going into mass storage mode when plugged in to charge.as soon as it is plugged in to charge the screen appears that shows the garmin plugged in the computer. and the map...


1) Disconnecting the nuvi from the charging cable.

2) Press and hold the battery meter icon for 8 seconds. This puts the nuvi into "system test" mode.

3) Plug in the power cable.

4) Click "Exit." The nuvi should now reboot, but remain in GPS mode!

Hwer to conect all the wires?


If you connect the unit to another unit, that either sends or receives data on the NMEA network, the in/out wires are used to transfer that data. If you do not have any unit for that purpose, you don't need to have them connected anywhere.

How to hardwire to HD motorcycle


Black or ground to chasis, Red to battery if you want it to have power all the time.
To the fuse box to a switched line if you want it to turn off with the bike.
Be sure to have a fuse in line with the power wire to prevent damage to the GPS umit or a fire on the bike.

Need ground wire reconnected


You need to solder the wire or wires back on the board. There is a red wire and a black wire used to power the backlight. They go to two solder pads on the board that are near each other. You should be able to see where the wire has broken off. If you don't have the equipment or haven't done this before ask a friend.

Garmin 525s will not turn on


This is a common problem with 400 and 500 series garmins.  The only fix is to take it back and exchange it.  There has been a software update to prevent it from happening but once it powers down it's too late for the update.  This has been a known problem since they hit the market in May. Any respectable retailer should exchange it with no questions asked, especially if you just bought it.
