Go to the Garmin website and download their Webupdater program. Run it and plug your Nuvi into the PC using the USB cable. It will upgrade your Nuvi firmware and then ask if you want to select other software. Select the one labeled GPS chipset G. After it has finished, make sure you deselect the Nuvi and unplug the cable. The Nuvi will reboot and say "LOADER" and will reboot with the latest firmware and attempt to update the GPS software to v3.0. After it has rebooted, turn it off and then on again. Check the GPS software version. It should be 3.0. If it's still 0.0, then your antenna/receiver is bad and needs to be replaced.
