I have put in new “D” batteries in my locator transmitter and am getting no power. Why?
Armada locators utilize 8 “D” cell batteries. The battery compartment is designed to tightly hold the D cell batteries in place (you wouldn’t want them moving around, right?). When initially installed, they sometimes need to be adjusted to make that first connection. Once this has been accomplished, the tight control will keep them in place. However, do not adjust the batteries while the unit is on.
As a note, not all D cell batteries are created equal. There is actually a slight size difference between manufacturers. The larger batteries fit tighter and therefore may be the ones that need the initial adjustment.
