Customer Question

The radio on my Garmin Rino 520 hcx is in disrepair. I can transmit but can't receive.
This has become a valuable tool for me and I would love to get it repaired. Is there something that I can do to repair this or do I need to send it in for repair.

For something like thisthis, I would have it repaired by Garmin. Considering potential fines for radio equipment that isn't functioning correctly, it is cheaper in the long run. Some people are surprised about the extent to which the FCC enforces its rules. Also, even if it is out of warranty, Garmin offers reasonable flat rates for repair. You can see the prices and instructions on what to do next at the following page:

Please let me know if you have any questions.
