From what I understand, there are some batteries in the antenna that needs to be replaced. You can send it in or do it yourself.

It is not a do it yourself project. Send it to Livorsi Marine the orignal manufacturer. Or contact Elite Marine he can help also.

If 70 is 3:00 on the face then you do not have a GPS signal.
