 While fishing a tourney this past Saturday my GPS just stopped working on my 1197 at console. It has an external antenna. It would not and still won't pull the GPS screen up on my views. Not to mention right after that not 5 min I ran up on a sandbar. Plus got another question.....my 997 went off on its own I turned it back on came on fine then went off again at some point and wouldn't come back on. But now that its at home and on charge I just checked it and came on fine. What would be causing this? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

 low voltage. Weak, run down or under size battery or some combinations of these are likely cause. This has been discussed often on these pages. With a volt meter and a little checking things out you should be able to determine problem.


   Agree with the above...also..... from humminbird #11206 #11206  3/25/2012 9:36:59 PM
 There may be a loose connection or corrosion somewhere. Need to trace wiring back to battery. Over-voltage will cause the same effect. Are your electronics connected to the engine battery? If your voltage regulator (or rectifier/alternator whatever you have))is faulty, then your electronics will shut to protect against damage. If you have a Merc engine, then you have two VR's and maybe both are faulty. With a voltmeter, start engine, and measure voltage at the battery. If 15-16 volts, you have faulty VR or VR's.

   I have the same two units, had the same problem! from fishintechnician #13154 #13154  3/25/2012 9:44:38 PM
  I have the same two units(except I have the 998 and 1197) and I had the same problem about a month ago. it happened at the End of the tournament day. I have a lot of things hooked up to my cranking battery a talon three graphs live well pumps etc. I did not bother tracking down the problem it was obvious I did not have enough juice. I added a second cranking battery hooked it up parallel to the first battery I connected half of my things to one battery and half to the other battery even though it functions as one large battery problem solved...

   fishintechnician: you might want to do the following.... from humminbird #11206 #11206  3/28/2012 9:06:50 PM
 You certainly had a load on your one 12 volt battery. I would suggest you check you charging system to determine if you have a faulty regulator (s), rectifier or alternator. You can do this as described above. Voltage at your engine battery at 1800-2000 rpm should be 14.4 volts.
