Check to see if the antenna is enabled, or if demo mode is off, or simulation mode is off. Make sure you have a clear view of the sky. Leave it stationary for at least 12 minutes to download the latest almanac and ephemeris from at least one satellite.

I turn it my Garmin and it will not come up with my location, it is coming up Kanas and Im in Cleveland


Are you outside with the unit? It was made in Kansas and has Olathe, Kansas as it's default starting point. However, when you take the unit outside and it gets a satellite signal, it should find where it is currently. If not, the GPS might be turned off (for indoor use). Turning the unit off for a few seconds and then on again outside should put it in the proper mode to receive satellite signals. Let me know if this helps.

Can not find a screen with several satelites on my Nuvi 205.


I found someone on your home page that had a similar problem. All that was required was to hold down the satelite bars icon for from 5-8 sec.

Thank you for your help.
