Default Garmin 2010c no gps signal

Hello, After 10 years my garmin 2010c finally gave out. I was able to find the same unit in very very good condition. I swapped out the unit and I have no gps signal. Any thoughts on what I can do?

Perhaps it is the antenna, receiver that is the issue, My external antenna always shows the wrong time and day. thus I now use a internal antenna built into my unit.

Garmin 7610xsv, Do not know what model ant. I have. It was first used on a 7212 unit

You may need to update the software on 2010C and GPS 17 antenna. What software version is the 2010C and GPS 17 antenna running now ?

Had that issue as well, thought it was the GPS puck, but then found the main accessory connection was not as clean as it should have been, mind you all other electronics were fine, just lost GPS signal, after cleaning the connections BAM it all works fine now. Just FYI
