Bought this unit may of last year. Love it. Last trip while checking everything at the house it did not power on. I checked power at the fuse and good. So i tried to connect the power without the clip on the base I could get it to power on. But it would not stay on and GPS seemed off when i was in the boat. Each time it only powers on for 5 seconds or so then right back off. Not sure whats going on. Only 3 months out of warranty. Sure something can be done.

    So I called them today, they advised me a lot of people are having this problem and when they send them in they power right up. She told me to try to wire it directly to the battery with a fuse rather than go through a fuse panel. I did that this evening And it powered on the first time and i waited for a few minutes and it got GPS signal showing me where i was. Have not water tested it yet but hope to this weekend. Seemed to work.
