Question about Navman Tracker 5500i GPS Receiver
Backlight on navman 5500 is set to max but hard to see in daylight seems like a bulb is loose it will every once a while get bright
Its water ingress causing a short in the high voltage wiring PCB.
Open the unit with a 1.5mm allen key, unscrew the power/data cable sockets with a spanner and GPS antenna inlet with an 8mm socket (NA to i models) .
Where water has arced there will be burning black on the green PCB evident, cut the PCB wire and remove the section around the burn.
solder a new wire to bypass the short.
Dry the unit and seal with silicone to prevent re occurrence.
Its a 2 hour repair requiring a high DIY soldering standard but off set it against the time it will take to reload you waypoints in a new plotter , its well worth the trouble.
