Question about Garmin Quest GPS Receiver
I have recently been experiencing a problem with my Garmin Quest navigation system. I can not access any satellites during normal operation. The GPS satellites aooear when I am in "indoor mode". I have let the battery run down and recharged the unit but the same problem exist. I have also tried reloading a map in the unit with hopes of resolving the problem but it didn't help. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you! GravesR Gravesr98@verizon.net
I have discovered that my car windscreen has some sort of built-in interference that has been solved by fitting an external antenna - Garmin is now working perfectly!

It worked! I went into the edit time and changed the daylight savings time from auto to off and sha-zam! Good as new. No need to reset the unit.Thanks for the advise!

Hello, I currently own a Garmin quest myself, and some time ago I had some strange problems myself, I am a electronics technician, and I do have a work around for you. I will explain the problems and a cure for you to try, none of the work arounds depend on any parts to be removed.
1. NO RECEIVING SATELLITE TELEMETRY. I beleieve this could be due to a number of reasons, but more so at sometime corrupted telemetry was the problem to fix this,
a turn GPS on when booted (initialised)
b. depress menu
select Time Setup
when in Time Setup depress MENU
Select SET DATE
Depress OK button
Depress OK button again on the numberic keypad that appears on the screen (DONE)
what this seems to do is resets the internal date/time clock and the unit starts to work again.
the Second workaround is this but takes hours to perform.
Simply turn the Guest on and allow the battery to fully discharge, usually this works to TOTALLY flush the Memory again, but on my unit I have to setup all the maps again, this is easy to perform, but just takes time. I hope this helps you.
