My garmin nuvi 350

My garmin 350 when first turned on stays in the aquiring satalites mode for about 30 to 60 minutes. Then it asks if I am inside or if I have moved since last used. After I answer each question, it works. Whats going on. Please help.

I have the same problem and tried updating firmware but that didn't seem to help. I tried factory resets and other "fixes" then I read another article on fixya http://www.fixya.com/support/t1100930-nuvi_360_cannot_acquire_sattelite

I followed the advice to put a wire into the external antenna receiver.
I used some torn apart cat 5 ethernet.
By inserting the wire into the middle it started finding satellites.
At this point that seemed to wake my nuvi up and it doesn't need the wire anymore.

If a GPS gets a factory reset, powered off for months, or powered up again in a different country, it will eventually scan the sky for any satellite it can find, and then download a new almanac and ephemeris - which can take up to 12 minutes after it finds the first satellite. This is best done stationary, to minimize the doppler effect until a fix is acquired.
