Hi I have a Jabiru 120 with the small factory installed Garmin gps. The unit seems to function fine without the engine running but with the engine running it keeps turning off and on

Has anyone else had this problem and has a solution.

Regards
Harry

Hi Harry,
Have you tried disconnecting the unit while the engine is running? The two likely options I can think of are radio frequency noise (coming into the GPS through its antenna) and electrical noise (coming up the electrical connection). If you still have the issue with the unit unplugged then it's the latter. That's assuming that the battery is ok and the connection is sound.
Let me know how you go!
Thanks,
Doug.
