Default Need a simple GPS.......BArmin

I want to replace a broken Garmin GPS on my 24' CC. Just want a GPS, not a combo unit. Already have a nice enough fish finder, a Hummingbird 997c SI.
I boat in Wilmington , NC and offshore maybe 20 miles with hopes of going 40 miles from shore to get to the Stream.
Suggestions?
Much appreciated !!!

Can't get it to work, GPS won't come on at all, says it's not connected and I don't want to send it in for repair, too costly I imagine. Probably a 7 year old unit.
But the fishfinder works fine on it and the water temp.

May not need a repair. Sounds like its looking for an external GPS which isnt connected. You can call Humminbird for help, but look in the menus for a SOURCE setting for the GPS. Im guessing there is an option for external or internal.

Lots of very good Humminbird people hang out there. Post the question in the 997 section.

Get the best Garmin you can afford.. The 7612 I believe is a chartplotter/radar only unit
