I tried to fix a problem similar to this for 1and 1/2 hours. Ahhh! However, after raising the antenna, (in back of device), the satellite picked up my exact location. Hope this helps.

GPS Garmin 1450 poor satelittle signal- can't find satelittloes


If the Garmin nuvi 1450 could find satellites at the same location and time before there's something wrong with the built-in receiver / antenna. Because it's not accessible from the outside it needs to be opened to check the antenna connections. Best is to check battery at the same time and replace it - once the problem is fixed.

At some locations there can be poor GPS sat reception - due to line of sight obstructions, such as trees, buildings. For a 2D fix it needs to "see" at least 3 satellites signals.

Can't unlock my garmin nuvi 680


There is NO master reset code. Whoever told you this was wrong. You have to use your security location to unlock it. Otherwise, you have to send it in to Garmin with the original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer. This is to prevent use of the unit in case of theft.

"locating Satellites"


When you purchase a Garmin product you are given a key upon registration. If your Nuvi is registered then you need to go to Garmin and click on support. Here is a link to Garmins home page. Hope this helps, Sea Breeze

Starting point is wrong


As you are turning on the unit press and hold the lower right corner then it will come up with a reset option. Reset the unit. If that does not work please reply back with the model of your Nuvi unit.

Cannot locate satellites


I can help you fix the satellite problem with your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

Poor or inaccurate GPS tracking, and taking a long time to acquire satellites, are issues that have been addressed by Nuvi 265WT firmware updates.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running better than new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
