Default I think my Lowrance antena died

...LCX-25C...Yesterday my GPS wasn't working from the start, bottom machine is fine. Worked fine last time out. All the reading I've been doing is pointing to the antenna. Also that my chances of finding a replacement is fairly low.
Just get a flashing ?(question mark) when I try and initiate it.
I have tried looking at all the settings and they are set correctly. Did a hard reset also.
I don't think I know anyone with the same (old) unit that I might try my antenna on their unit.
Was wondering if anyone had a idea other than e-bay for a antenna that would fit my unit ?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

You can use Lowrance Point-1 with a blue to red adapter cable.

They cheapest option is to get a Humminbird AS-GR16, cut off the connector and connect to your LCX using NMEA 183 (if you have free ports)

Not sure if Lowrance is still doing it, but if you have the LGC2000, they know there was an issue, and might give you a deal on the new antenna...
