My spare Garmin 3006C GPS unit decided to lose the satellite/antenna the other day for no known reason. (The error was: could not find a GPS 17 signal (satellite/antenna), or something close.)
I tried several things, such as clean plugs/contacts, check power, and checked other GPS units.)
I went back to troubleshoot today, and could not repeat the problem. (The error could not be repeated without un-plugging the antenna/satellite cable.)
I haven't dug into the manual yet, but are there any quick bias-voltage tests, or resistance tests I can do on the satellite/antenna plug (at the end the goes into the GPS).
