Default Lowrance LMS-160

Bought a used boat with Lowrance LMS-160. The GPS acquires a satellite fix, then 10 minutes later it "loses the signal". A few minutes later it re-aquires the position, only ot lose it again 10 minutes later. Is this a sign of a bad attennae?

Thanks!

Most likely a bad antenna or wiring. Try powering all your other electronics off and see if you still have the problem, especially if you have a radar. Does it happen only when the engine is running? I had an intermittent problem with GPS losing lock when the boat hit a wave, and traced it down to a loose power wire.
