Garmin 182C - Power Connector

Not the cable , but the plastic connector plug at the back of the unit ?

Does anybody know where I can source a replacement , or has anyone got a non working unit ( with a decent plug ) to break for spares please ?

Thanks......Bern

If it did what mine did and not lock the cable in place. Just use some sikaflex and stick in place like I did.

Andy - I've lost a pin ( Gnd ) and the plug is mechanically knackered after 10 years .

I have already ordered a new 556 , but my 182 could make a good " back-up " if i can just find a replacement socket . The unit is still fine electronically .

Can you not hardwire the cable in the back and use sikaflex to seal it up?

Yes of course .......but that's 2nd choice ! Best option if posible is to source the plug.

Now Sorted !

Just in case anybody else has the same problem.........

The connector is a Switchcraft EN3P7M , made in the USA but readily available from RS Components ( Part no. 308-0043 )

or Farnell ( Part no. 1685969 )

Less than a tenner !

Glad you found a replacement and didn't have to bodge the job like I suggested
