Question 276c Antenna connect issue

My older 276c was having issues picking up satelites with the stock antenna that is original to the GPS.

I picked up a Glisson external that, when it is working, picks up 12+ satelites where the stock antenna at best did 4-5

To get either to work, I have to repossion the antena (or cable), wait to see if any satelites are found and possibly move it again if none are found (which is normal and I have to try 4-5 positionings).

I'd have to conclude that something on the GPS side is the issue here.

Any words of wisdom about adressing this type of fault?

Sadly I had been planning on send in my 276c to Garmin for a refresh, and see I waited a bit too long... they don't reman these anymore
