Intermittent Garmin problem
Hi folks just experienced a problem with my chart plotter itís the Garmin 2010 I was going along the other day and I suddenly received an error message on the plotter telling me the satellite signal from the antenna had been lost no satellite signal being received I had just come through some rough water so immediately thought something had shook loose a wire had come of but when I powered the unit down and started it back up again it was working fine.
This happened again later on but after pressing the enter button to acknowledge the error message the fault seemed to clear about thirty seconds later.
Next day while using the boat the fault reoccurred about three or four times but on occasion we were moving slowly in flat calm water we then took the boat into Tobermory for about four hours when using it to go down the sound of Mull back to Oman the unit behaved perfectly even when going through rough water boat slamming everywhere.
The next day I used the boat all day with no problems the fault never reoccurred so I was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem or can shed any light on the subject because itís a bit concerning to say the least I donít know if I still have a loose wire situation or if the satellite signal can just be lost on occasion many thanks
