  • Garmin GXM52 fail to comunicate

    Looking for ideas.

    I have a pair of 7616 with a Garmin GXM52 for weather. The units now do not communicate with the GXM52. I have checked the connection at the network and the antenna. Both seem fine.

    I am guessing the GXM52 failed. I found out yesterday that is no longer made. Question for the group. If I replace it with the new GXM53 is that plug and play with the same cable or do I need to pull a new one?

    Thank you

    Before you condemn the 52, I would do a Garmin update. I had mine do the same thing, went round and round. Did an update and it came back.
    You will have to change the cable if you go the 53 route.

      I will give that a try. I did find a 52 NOS if I need to swap it out. Thank you

          I am running Version 11. I heard 12 had issues but I need to get the weather back online
