Question about RoyalTek GPS
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,
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:
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.

I also had this problem while trying to register a Nuvi 205W. I talked to someone at Garmin tech support and found that I was using USB cable that was only meant to plug in to my computer to recharge the unit. I have now sent for a data transmission USB cable, will see if that solves the problem when it arrives. Hope this helps.
