stevez2436 Posted May 28, 2011 Report Share Posted May 28, 2011 I have a panel installed Garmin 696 in my 2010 CTLS. I love it especially the interface with my TruTrak Autopilot. However, twice within the last year the 696 will not start up when I switch on the Avionics. When I look real closely at the display, I can see a very faint "Garmin" on the screen. From looking at the manual, I think the unit is in some kind of "charge" mode. I tried turning the Avionics switch on/off and it just refuses to turn to on. I also tried holding and pushing the on/off switch at the top of the 696 panel, but the unit refuses to come out of this weird charge mode. The only way I have been able to get it to return to normal is to pull it out of the panel and remove/insert the battery. A real pain in the butt! Anyone have a "trick" to reboot the 696 when it is stuck in "charge" mode without removing the unit's battery? Appreciate any suggestions?
