Clock reset and cant find satellite

Every time the unit loses power I have to reset the clock and I have to reset the switch several times before the signal is acquired. This is becoming a very annoying problem. Now I have sent several E mails to the customer support and they do not offer any real solution.

To shutoff the unit hold down the "Menu" button for 2 seconds. Using the power switch on the bottom shuts off all power including the clock.

You never have to set the clock. As soon as the unit gets the GPS signal the clock is set to that location's time. BTW, the switch on the bottom turns all power off ... and you can't charge in that mode.

I have had the same problem. I just notice the power switch on the bottom of the unit. I believe if this one is used it will not lose power. The other power button is probably for a standby mode.

How do I change the time on my tom tom


The clock on your navigation device is automatically synchronised with the satellite clocks. You can also set the clock manually, for example when the device is indoors and unable to receive a satellite signal. The default setting is to automatically adjust the clock for the current time zone.
How to change clock settings To select the time format and to set the time, follow these steps:
Open the Main menu and tap Settings.
In the Settings menu, tap Set clock.
Select how the time should be displayed, then tap Next.
When you do not have a satellite signal, you are asked if you want to set the time manually.
Note: Since you need to be outside for your navigation device to receive a satellite signal, you might want to immediately set the time manually. The device will then set the time automatically when you next take the device outside.
Tap Yes to set the time manually or tap No to set your device to update the time automatically using GPS satellites.
Hope this was helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

How to set the current time.time did not change when we turn the clock back one hour.


either your 1440 was never set to include daylight saving time or the unit was reset at some point.

the time is automatically set once you choose your time zone and if you observe daylight saving time, you must check that box..

go to the main menu, then system option and click on the time zone tab, then select your time zone and check off the little box for daylight saving time.

Try to power up my GPS 60csx and the screen stays on for several seconds then fades out.


I would suggest that you try the following master reset and software
update.
Please be aware that if you have not used your gps for a while it will
take time to download fresh information.
With the unit switched off please press and hold QUIT + MENU + ZOOM OUT
+ POWER
You will lose any data stored on the unit so back your unit up first. I
would also suggest running the latest software update from the following
link, if you have not already done so http://www.garmin.com/support/download.jsp

Once all this is done please leave your unit with a clear view of the
sky and allow it to acquire a satellite fix. This may take time so
please be patient. Once you have a fix leave the unit for a further 40
minute to achieve a good almanac update.

Garmin GPS problem


I have a 276C that has the same problem. Garmin has a unit with this problem and is working on a solution. The problem is that the real time clock loses time when the unit is turned off and disconnected from a power source. As a result when you turn on the unit it thinks the satelites are in a different orbit than where they actually are. The unit will continue trying to aquire forever and not find the satelites. You have to select "New Location" from the menu and select "Autolocate" and the unit will start to look for any satelites in view. The unit should get a fix within 15 minutes. This is a very frustrating problem having to reset it every day. There is a new version of firmware (5.3). I don't know if the problem has been fixed with this release.

276C Memory Battery


There is a button cell soldered to the main circuit board that powers the real-time clock while the unit is off or the main battery is removed or flat. After a couple of years this button cell dies and has to be replaced. I've had this problem twice in five years, and each time replacing the button cell fixes the problem.

Needs a Garmin workshop, or someone who's good with a fine-point soldering iron.

Reset clock


Your C330 should adjust the time once it lock onto a satellite. The only changes that you can make are time zone and time format.

Clock doesn't update


Ensure you have the latest software....7.10

Also, hold down the menu and map button when you power it up for 15 seconds or so.

Make sure you have a clear view of the sky....let it sit for 20 min.

Answer the questions on the screen and try again.

Note: doing the above will cause the unit to lose all your favorites, recent finds etc., so do a back up.

Do the following: 1 - Make sure you have fresh batteries in the unit and turn the unit on. 2 - Check the GPS date and Time. On the Main Menu at the bottom of the screen, you can see a date and time. If the date and time are not current, then the clock is your problem. You will have to wait for the almanac information to be updated. Details are below in a later section. 3 - Make sure your GPS is in the Normal Mode and not a demo mode. Verify other systems settings. Go to the main menu and click on Setup icon. From the Setup screen, access the System screen icon. Verify the following settings: GPS: normal WAAS: Enabled Language: English or your choice. Battery: Set according to your battery types. 4 - Check your GPSs Version Software. Go to the main menu and click on Setup icon. From the Setup screen, access the System screen icon. From the System screen, access the sub-menu icon in the upper right bar. Select "Software Version" from the list. Verify the actual software version for me. The latest version available for the eTrex Legend is version 3.90 dated March 2008. http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=711 Update the unit using this latest software and using Garmin's Webupdater. http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp If that won't work, use the following download page to access the latest software updates per units. http://www8.garmin.com/support/blosp.jsp 5 - Resetting your GPS clock and almanac information Next you may need to acclimate your unit to a new date and time (almanac information). If you had your unit off and without batteries for over a month since you last accessed satellites, then your clock and almanac information may be incorrect. Even Garmin acknowledges this problem after software updates and the problem with accessing satellites. They state: "unit data including alamanac information may be incorrect or cleared. Back up all user data before upgrading. After installation is complete, place unit with a clear view of the sky for 15-30 minutes to re-acquire almanac data. " I know of no way to reset the clock using the GPS menus. All I can suggest is that you do the following: A - turn the unit on and wait 5 minutes or so for the "Poor Satellite Reception" screen to appear. See page 7 of the owner's manual. B - Set the "new location" to your area using the map when the "poor satellite reception screen" appears. Be sure to use the "map" option and not the "automatic". C - Set the GPS outside with a clear view of the sky. Check on it every 10 minutes. When the "Poor Satellite Reception" screen appears again, then click on "Restart Search". The "Restart Search" option is used when the date provided in the GPS is not today's date. (See page 7 of the Owner's manual for an example) Legend Owners Manual: http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/eTrexLegend_OwnersManual.pdf D - Once the GPS can track 4 satellites, then the clock should reset and you should be fine. This process could take up to an hour. I have had this problem with my eTrex Vista and eTrex Legend (both backup GPSs) and resolved it by having the clock reset. In fact, I just tried my eTrex Legend today after not using it for many months and storing it without batteries and it had this same problem. I followed the steps above to fix the problem. This took about 35 minutes.
