Re: GPS Fix Lost

Our Garmin GPSMap 392 did something similar last fall. On the way to haulout: No GPS. It would show only one satellite acquired and a bunch of others there, but not acquired. I think at one point it acquired two.

So this spring, before embarking on a New GPS Quest, put a battery aboard and tested the GPS. Worked right off, no problem .

Gonna have to test it again.

We're thinking a backup GPS would be a Good Idea.
