    Have you tried master reset and firmware update ?

    After firmware update you need to wait around an hour to get satellite signal .

    If you are not able to acquire signal have a check over the antenna connection .

    Chance of antenna being damaged .

    I believe you need to go to the garmin website and download the latest
    updates for Garmin XT. I had the same problem with an older version of
    the software but downloading the update fixed it.

Try reporting the bug to the manufacturer of the GPS device. I wish I could give you a web site or a phone number but I can't since you didn't specify the device.

Nuvi 200w will not pick up sattalites


Make sure you are outside and as much in the open as possible. Staying stationary is the best way to insure a satellite signal. Give your GPS a few minutes if necessary to pick up a satellite signal. Also remember poor weather can effect a satellite signal reaching your GPS, just like it will satellite TV.

Cannot locate saltellite or Acquiring satellite


The error means it can't pick up valid GPS signals. In other words, bad reception.

Has the unit ever worked? Does the unit have an internal or external antenna? Are the batteries fully charged?

Try the unit outside with clear view of sky instead of in the car. This will give it the best chance of picking up a GPS signal.

If it still doesn't then suggest something broken inside.

I have a Nuvi 200w that I received last December as a gift. This unit takes forever to aquire a satellite. The "DIFFICULY AQUIRING SATELLITES" message comes on 90% of the times I try to use it....


While under warranty.... yes.... Make sure it's been registered on their site before calling them and requesting an RMA number.

Good luck!
