Default Garmin 182

My Garmin 182 gps stopped reading the bluechart map card the other day. Can the map cards go bad?. It started to display the correct map for a few seconds then drops back into base map mode. The navigation menu says the unit is looking at a map card, even though there is no data displayed..thanks

I would try removing and inserting the card several times to rub away any possible corrosion on the contacts. Next step, I would turn the unit off and spray the contacts with electronic grade contact cleaner and insert and remove the card several times. Wait several minutes for everything to dry and try again. Try a different map card if you have one or can borrow one.

Then, contact Garmin tech support.

Thanks, I tried the spray cleaner-no help.I will have to go to the boatstore and see if I can plug in my mapcard to one of their models and see if it is the card or the unit
