You should be able to use ur garmin I3 with the top facing the sky thru ur windshield just fine. Just like the one in this video

If the problem still exists then try reinstalling the maps again. Make sure you have the Map Source and City navigator installed from the Cd provided. And install the maps once again like u did at first. It should fix the problem.

"switch off your i3, press and hold down the arrow button, then the wheel and finally the power button. Hold all three buttons down until the i3 switches on. Select 'Yes' to erase all user data. Follow the instructions and again leave your i3 outside for up to 40 minutes."

Garmin c330 will not acknowledge our home address

if you have a laptop take it outdoors and reload the software while sitting in your car at your home, as the software loads it also checks for nearest satellite...I did have this same problem. It took me 9 hrs. to reload the software while I was outside...I ran an extension cord to my laptop.

Registration code

You will have to buy a regular copy of Mapsource NT (do not buy the update version). The regular copy will come with a serial number and then you will have to register with to get the unlock code. Also you will need the unit serial number on your i3, (it can be found by removing the battery cover).
