Garmin 296 Question/Problem


I have my 296 hard-wired into my avionics buss. It's always been reliable in that it turns on and off with the avionics master, save for the 30 second delay from the internal battery. Yesterday was a day when the GPS was really important. Hard rain, low ceiling, and dodging clouds to the ground was like being a mouse in a maze. Near the end of my flight my GPS turned itself off. There was no 30 second delay, either. The screen went black instantly and without warning. It powered right back up when I pushed the power button. Does anyone have any ideas about why it would turn off like this?
