Customer Question

I have a Garmin ECHOMAP 53DV with software version 2.30. More often than not the unit will inadvertently turn itself off. It will power up and acquire GPS but shut down after a period of time. Sometimes when turning power back on it will shut down before acquisition.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide

the right answer to your question.

I'm sorry to hear about the unreliable performance of your Garmin device. I hope that I can point you toward a solution to the problem.

I will need to ask a few questions before I give an opinion on the problem and how it might be fixed, please:

- Is the Garmin 53DV several years old at least?

- Has it ever been repaired or had any part replaced since you bought it?

Let me know, in Reply To Expert, please. Thanks.
