The monitor of my MGPS...
The monitor of my MGPS will light up for a couple of seconds when I press the on/off button, but then goes off. No matter what I do, the monitor will not stay on! Can you tell me what is wrong?

Hello & Welcome,

 

Can you send along the Make and Model of your GPS system?

 

Thanks

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

I am sorry, but there is nothing on my GPS that indicates the make or the model; I do however know that it is about 5 years old.

Car Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 8 years ago

Is there any way that you can take a digital picture of the unit and upload it here?

 

It is kind of hard to troubleshoot without knowing what kind of GPS it is.
