Receiver will not find satellite

Ekse tried to help on the 9th. I let the BT-308 receiver run down for 10hrs, I recharged it for 6-8 hrs. I located the receiver with my iPAQ 5550 Pocket PC but there are no green lites to indicate a satellite found. iPAQ keeps trying to reconnect.

Can I ask some quick question to tackle the problem.

Where you are presently (location)? Is it away from the network area?

Is the Ipaq under warranty still?

Since when you are facing this problem.

The battery on my 201 forerunner is only lasting 5-6 hrs, how do I change batteries and is it worth it. Cheers Tom


It is actually meant to last for 15 hour per charge, and it lasting just 5-6 hours simply means it is either not fully charged or the battery is weak.

It uses a lithium ion rechargeable battery, and it can be replaced, you will have to open it up to be able to locate the battery.

If you are not familiar with such activities, i will strongly advice you get a repairman replace the battery for you.

Since taking a walk with it wont take up to 5-6 hours, it will be best you leave it that way, and try to recharge as soon as it drops, but if you use it for over that amount of time in a day then you can replace it. the battery is located right underneath the wrist band used in strapping the hand.

Take care

Holds full charge for only 5 hrs.

this is about average for on full time! Don;t confuse 'Standby Time" with actual usage time in continuous usage. Earlier models only gave 2 hrs!

I made a mod to be able to fit an Opti-Sola charger ( quite small) That uses solar power to recharge or extend running time. There are also battery units fror Palm Zires that can be modified tro fit this unit to get extended time in the field If you want more details of these items get back to me.

Why does my GPS system have a difficult time locating satellites?It says ''acquiring satellites'' for about 5 minutes. Then it says it can't locate satellites. Should it continue trying? Why does it do...

this is what my navigon says about gettting the gps to connect.

Initializing the GPS receiver
In the upper right-hand corner of the display, the GPS symbol appears. As soon as
data from at least 3 satellites is received, the symbol changes to (GPS Ready). Note: If possible, position the device with a clear line of sight to the sky to successfully
receive messages from the GPS satellites.
Note: GPS initialization requires data from at least three satellites. If GPS data is not
available, the receiver will not initialize.
Note: It can take up to 20 minutes to initialize the integrated GPS receiver for the first
Note: Each time you turn on the device, GPS receiver initialization begins. When GPS
data is available, reception starts within one minute.
If the navigation device has been switched to standby for more than a week, the next initialization
can take up to 10 minutes.

No satellite reception

Your location is very critical. The receiver must see atleast 3 satellites to give you a good reading. You can't be inside a building, under a wide canope, in a tunnel, under dense folage, or anything else that would block most of the satellites. Get in a open field and try it again.

Cannot locate satellites

I can help you fix the satellite problem with your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

Poor or inaccurate GPS tracking, and taking a long time to acquire satellites, are issues that have been addressed by Nuvi 265WT firmware updates.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running better than new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
