Nuvi 350 finds satellites but won't lock on

At first it lost all satellites I did a soft reset,no help,then a hard reset, no help, reloaded new firmware,no help,left it outside for over an hour. On the satelite screen there were no sattelites or blue bars. Then I found a chipset update on garmin website and installed it rebooted it then it found satellites up to 9 almost full bars but still says serching for sattelites but wan't lock on. It thinks it is in Kansas.

I was driving along and I got a message "lost satellite reception.


Put it on the dashboard when it is acquiring signal, that helps it faster. If it locks up like that, disconnected the power for 20 seconds and then power it back on.

Acquiring satellites


The problem might be that your GPS is not able to connect to the satellite.
I'll see what the problem might be.

Have a look though the setting to see if there is a manufactures reset mode (check instructions of go to there web site for help before spending money on it) If you can reset it, this will rest all setting to when it was made. then reload your map and see if it can find the satellites then. Good luck.

Garmin nv 1300 can't find satellite


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Have you downloaded the latest firmware for the unit? If not, download the Web Updater from Garmin and download the latest version. This may help. Also, make sure the antenna is fully extended while using the unit.
