SOURCE: changed batteries

Please check the following website for all the info and faq.


If you have lost the outside temperature on the clock display after replacing the transmitter battery then do the following:

1. Make sure you have good batteries installed in the remote transmitter
2. Remove the batteries from the main clock and keep them out until the clock display disappers.
3. Re-install the batteries in the clock.
4. Wait until the display returns and includes the outside temperature display as well.
5. Set the clock again for current time/date etc.
6. Bingo. You are in business.

SOURCE: The outside temp sender won't work. We put new

Simple, the instructions state that when changing the batteries on the outside temp. sensor, you must also change the batteries on the main clock unit. I had same problem when I changed the sensor batteries until I pulled the batteries from the clock and it reset fine. ( Sensor batteries first, then clock batteries. ) The clock will reset to atomic time overnight so don't worry if it doesn't read correctly at first.

SOURCE: my skyscan model 87800 will not show outside temp.

Look in the manual, There should be a section on remote sensors, they usualy have a "sync" button on them. and hit main unit first then remote.

SOURCE: It simply stopped working as

Welcome to Fixya!

The charging port is at the back of your Garmin device. It is also the USB port. See image below.

You will need a car charger to be able to charge it on your car, or use it while charging. See the image below.

If you do not have one, you can get it from for a fairly good price. Just click the link below.

Thank you for usng Fixya, have a great day.

Cannot get the weather station model ws-916ou-it to show outside temperature

I have three of these WS-916OU-IT units. After a few years, the outside sensor just fails. You will get dashes and a "TR" low battery signal, even if the batteries are good
just buy another whole weather station (short money) and set both the old and new weather station unit to receive from the single new outdoor sensor.
To do this - just follow the procedure for a single sensor - that is - put the batteries in the new sensor - then within 30 seconds - put the batteries in all the weather stations - they will all pick up the same outdoor sensor.
I now have three units running off of one outdoor sensor.
Seems a bit silly, but it works.

I have this model and the outdoor temp sensor isnt working, and yes both modules have brand new batteries in them. what should i do to get the outdoor temp sensor to work.

My outside display stopped working, but the inside display still worked. I found that one of the two batteries in the inside unit was almost all the way dead. Once I replaced both batteries the outside display worked. I also checked the batteries in the outside unit. After all batteries were installed, I pushed the small button that is inside the battery compartment on the outdoor unit. It's now working perfect..
