My Garmon 5212 freezes up. The screen is frozen, all data

Customer Question

My Garmon 5212 freezes up. The screen is frozen, all data (speed, depth,heading) is frozen. Turning the unit off and da k on I freezes it. The problem seems to be happening more often as the unit is getting older.

Hi Edwin,

As the GPSMAP device gets older, the electronic components inside it will degrade.

You could return it to Garmin for refurbishment, or they may even offer you a trade-in against a newer model.
