Default Garmin 4210 Keeps Shutting Down

I have a Garmin 4210 Chartplotter that keeps shutting off after several minutes in use. I use it on a 28' Bertram. Sent unit back to Garmin; they replacedit, but problem is still present. Any suggestions, comments, ideas would be a great help....thanking you...Rick

Assume you've checked the voltage already--wires are good, no kinks, no abrasions? Suggest you check the ground. Have you done either?

Uh, isn't that a fishing boat? Are you a cruiser?
