Garmin 527xs
my garmin 527xs keeps switching itself off then restarting itself, the problem started with the screen freezing. Why does it keep turning off then back on and is this knew one likely to start freezing also. I tried pressing the power for over 3 minutes, with no success, I disconected the power completelty with no result. Very frustrating.

Make sure that where you are getting power doesn't have a loose wire/connectors or corrosion on the contacts. Non constant power can cause any unit to start acting goofy.

Mine powered off on its own several times and it ended up being a bad breaker. If the power/ground is good, I suggest sending it to Garmin. They're quick about getting it back to you.

IŽll check the wiring and connect each one back on the boat and see how it works then, Thanks.

My 527xs is still showing a message TRANSER FAILED everytime I turn it on. It simply does not go beyond this.
I contacted Garmin Brazil, they sent me a file to download on the machine but this didnŽt work, I asked them to have a look at it, but strangely enough they said they only do services with devices which have a warrant. At the same time offered me to buy a new one. which I declined.
