The unit would not turn on this morning. Tested and found out the fuse was blown. When I put a new fuse in the block...it blew. I unplugged the GPS unit from the power cord..tried a new fuse and it worked. I tested for voltage at the end of the power cord and have it. When I plugged it back into the GPS....blown fuse. Suggestions on trouble shooting or do I send it in? Thanks, gb

You have a short in either your gps module or the wire feeding it!! unplug the module from the cable (about six inches from hockey puck) leaving the cable plugged into your unit, if it blows the cable is bad, if not plug in the module if that blows it the module is bad.. Just replaced a bad cable thursday..

Lowrance replied and wants 200 bucks to repair (covers all parts/labor) with a 6 month warranty. Wondering if I should apply the 200 bucks to a new unit? gb
