Question about RoyalTek GPS

Cant fix satellites on gps

Dear Sirs,

Im from Brazil and have no much experience on GPS devices. I had one Garmin II+ (sold) and now I have a Royaltek RGM-2000M mouse GPS which has been turned off for a long time (+/- 6months).

I have a problem with RGM that I cant fix satellites on that. I wait an hour in a clear area and nothing, despite of the gps can see 10 sats. Then, I decided to use the s/w which comes with this device (SiRF Demo 3.30a) and did some mods on the configuration. Big mistake!

As I was using in a small lcd screen on my car, i cant see what exactaly was writen on the screen which was related to UART configuration! As it not solved the problem I went to my desktop pc and give a read on that which says to dont change nothing on the UART config window... or it could cause to stop the communication with device. Too late! But, I think there is a communication 'cause the device can see (sometimes) the satellites.

I dont know if this information is enough but if necessary I can provide more.

Id like to know if is there a way to bring back the device to the factory settings again? how to do it?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my worst english,

Alex

Id like to know if is it possible to reset this device to the factory settings? how to do it? or anything else that could be done to get a fix on the gps. If there is anybody who has a boot file of this unit

Any misunderstanding of my english or missed information, please let me know.

Thanks for any help.

SOURCE: Garmin GPS 45

It is probably one of the following:
1)Old Software
In 1999 the GPS satellites were reset and the new almanac data had to be loaded into the GPS 45 for it to continue to work. It was not uncommon for that model to quicly kill a set of batteries when it is having difficulty acquiring, which would cause it to shut down in order to save the batteries for its internal memory.

I just did a quick search of the Garmin website and it appears they no longer support that model. If you go to their support page and send a request for a software update they can probably e mail it to you. The update is free but to down load it, you need a PC interface cable (RS232 serial port connector) Part Number: 010-10141-00 Suggested Retail Price: $ 38.09.

2)Bad antenna
To rule this one out, borrow an antenna from another Garmin 45 or Garmin 48, or plug the unit into an external antenna and see if the unit still shuts down. The drawback to this method is that you can buy a new GPS that is superior to the one you have for about the same price as an external antenna.

3)Bad batteries
If your batteries are low, the unit will automatically shut off to protect its internal memory. I tried a lot of different batteries in my 45 and I found that Eveready alkaline batteries worked best. Rechargeable nicad batteries don't work very well because they fool the battery meter. Newer models have a setting to specify that you are using rechargeable batteries.

Ultimately the best advice I can give you is buy a new GPS. For less than $150 you can buy a new model that is more accurate, more reliable, stores more waypoints, has a better display, is easier to use, and gives you more valuable information.

Please rate this information as helpful.

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

So what happens when you connect it to the PC?
Make sure no sd cards are installed while you do this.
download and install web updater, run it it gets to a screen where it looks for the gps, plug the usb cable into the GPS (no USB hubs please!!!) Make sure it detects the GPS before you continue. Select the updates you need (don't install all the languages !!) after this is done the program will report the downloads are on the garmin, unplug the unit and it will reboot and whilst rebooting it will install the updates....so don't touch it until it reboots again and displays the regular screen....and make sure the batery is fully charged before you do this...!

SOURCE: Garmin c550 GPS-Won't turn on at all.

push and Hold the power button down while you push reset, keep power button pressed til it boots again. If it does not, and it's in warranty ship it to garmin. If it's out of warranty, have someone open it up and remove the battery for a couple of minutes.

SOURCE: SISTEM SOFTWARE MISSING on my Garmin NUVI200 GPS

All Garmin users,

There is no easy solution for this except to return your unit to the nearest Garmin outlet. You need to have very special equipment called an E-Prom burner or writer which only Garmin have. With this equipment they re-programmed (restore) the operating system back on your specific Garmin unit and model.

The problem why anybody can't do it is because there is no way you can access your Garmin unit from a pc or mac if the operating system is lost or damage on your Garmin, for the simple reason your pc or mac can't reconize the device that is pluged in, because there are no communication platform between the two devices.

As simple as that, life with it or send your Garmin gps to an autherized professional Garmin dealer.

On my Garmin GPS maps 60 csx there are no


This happens to about 1% of the units I've sold. Sometimes the GPS antenna software reverts to version 0.00 which of course is nothing. Check in the GPS by going: Menu > Menu > Setup > System > Menu to see the versions installed.

Use Garmin WebUpdater (free from Garmin web site) to reload the software and update if necessary - they bring out updates a few times a year - it's all free and very easy to do using WebUpdater.

Garmin 205w wont find satellites


Hi, Please check to make sure the GPS is set to USA and your time zone etc do this in the tools menu, then see if it will load the map.
check for updates @ "my.garmin.com"
you can also download a manual at garmin.com if needed.

Make sure you are clear nearby buildings, depends on satellites currently visible, and the length of time your GPS has been on.these may have an affect on getting a satellite signal but mostly they are suppose work just fine.


You may need a car adapter with a reciever in it.they cost about $119.00 at bestbuy. ouch! e know if this helped at all.

I would try to exchange it for a new one, it hasnt been that long that you have it.
Hope this helps, let me know what happened. good luck!

GPS navigation


The unit will work in Brazil, but you do have to purchase the maps for Brazil from Garmin. Go to www.garmin.com and click on the Nuvi 350. Then click on Maps and it should show you the SD Card maps for Brazil and the purchase price.
