    I have a Garmin GPSmap 60CSx and it will not track Satellites. It picks up elevation, speed and stuff but i don't know how if it is not tracking the Satellites.

Won't pick up satellites

It fixed my garmin Nuvi 660:
With the unit off press firmly on the upper left hand corner of the screen with the tip of your finger.

2. Press the power button. When you see the screen light up let go of the power button but continue to press on the upper left hand corner of the screen until you receive the message "Do You Really Want to Start Up In Maintenance Mode?"

3. Say Yes and then select the third Option "Clear All User Data" and then say Yes.
4. The unit will then start up and ask you to set some preferences.

5. Once the unit is on the Main Menu please sit it in a safe place outside with a clear view of the sky for about 10 minutes and let it lock on to the satellites.

Will not aquire satellites

okay so its a miracle. the nuvi is working again. the same week it stopped working (my previous post) i decided to make to trip to NY (i live in MA). halfway through CT almost getting to NY my nuvi kicked in again and started working perfectly again.

the problem did begin after i did the firmware updates and even after doing the hard reset nothing happened.
but i guess going for a long trip fixes it. well it fixed it for me. back in MA and no issues so far. i dont know how that makes sense but it worked.

first turn it on and let the unit acquire satellites to find your home state. Then you can set up your address as your "home location". When I first set it up, I was able to pick up the satellites in my bedroom (scary....)...everything worked just fine.
