Cobra GPSM 2200 not getting signal

I've got the latest software. I just can't get a signal from a satellite. Cobra states to send it in for a repair. I've spent $300 on this plus $30 for the software and power cord. I don't want to send it in when I can buy a new one. Cobra states the antenna may be damaged. The antenna is a Cirocomm 590.
Thanks, Antoinette

SOURCE: GPS 60 unit shows "Searching the Sky" status message all the time

The "New Location" fix above brought my GPS 60 back to full operation. I did reload the GPS software from Garmin but the recovery depended on well charged batteries and as above: turn the unit on
press MENU button
scroll to "New Location"
wait 10 minutes for the GPS to recover.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi Firmaware Update Complete, Unable to catch satellite signal

I get that issue on my StreetPilot C550.  It's is consistently followed by an inability to receive Satellite.  Here's how I can tell on my unit: When I get the Updating Firmware, 1%, Done message, the satellite reception indicator always shows absolutely nothing. If I power it off, pull the car charger, wait, replace the car charger, turn the unit on, the indicator shows one red block on the signal strength indicator.
When I see the red block, I know I'll get reception.  No red block, no amount of waiting will help...  I have to completely power-cycle the unit to get a signal lock.

SOURCE: hello. i have a cobra

There are no updated maps or software available for that model. So, I need to upgrade to the 5000 gpsm for just a little over $200.00, plus I need to send in the old one. Will receive the new one in the mail 8-10 days.

SOURCE: Long periods with no signal - NUVI 660

Try to take it out of the car so that it has a completely unobstructed view of the sky. See if the signal problem is resolved. If that resolves the problem then you will need to find another place to attach it to the insude of the card. If that doesn't resolve the signal problem you will need to return it to the manufacturer. They have a program where they rebuild it for a flat fee regardless of what is wrong with the device.

SOURCE: Where do I get an unlock code for my cobra gpsm

unfortunately, if you locked you unit and dont remember the passcode, the unit has to be sent in to cobra because they are the only ones that can unlock it. Its an anti theft measure. Their contact number is 1-773-889-3087.
