Default Garmin 4208 Says "Holding" on Startup

Hi

Today when I turned on my Garmin 4208 it just had the Garmin logo on the screen and at the bottom said "Holding"

I have a GSD22 with an Airmar m260 and a GDL30A hooked to it as well

It seemed to sit there for ever, anyone know what that means?

Thanks

Dave

Might have a faulty power button on it. I would recommend calling Garmin to see what they have to say.

I disconnect all the devices and then it came up. Then I reconnected the devices and all worked fine. I spoke with Garmin and they said that it was possibly a firmware issue. My GSD was behind in rev numbers
