It keeps saying waiiting for a valid GPS signal.


Your GPS transceiver(Transmitter/reciever) is not working.It is either obstructed by a metal plate or any part of your vehicle or the cone where the signal is detected is disconnected from the circuit board.Try relocating the unit to where there is no obstruction(any metal).If this does not work it needs servicing.The transceiver is usually located on the middle top side of the unit.It is the antenna where the GPS satellite signal is recieved.

No signal


make sure it has a good view of the sky and let it aquire the satellites for a while. It may take sometime for it to figure out it's location once it starts seeing the sats. if you have it in a car, try another location. on the dash up near the window is a good spot for it to receive signals.

No Signal since 6/14


From the Nextar Support Web Site

"Q: NOTICE for all US customers with M3 and Q4 series that have been having a problem recently with receiving a satellite signal.
A: Recently it has come to our attention that there has been a problem with a US GPS satellite, in the early morning of June 14 launch a sudden change in the code signal, leading to some GPS signal anomalies. It is told that the satellite signal should be running properly by June 22, 2009."

GPS takes a long time to receive satellite signal.


You probably are just in a bad location where satellites are not reachable. All these units work from the same satellites and recieve them the same so it wouldn't matter what brand you have. I highly doubt that the powerlines and cell towers are effecting the transmission.

Gps not tracking satellites


the antena isnt the greatest, you can get a better external one, or make sure the screen is always pointing up, and your not under tree cover or anything as it will block the signal

Garmin 205w wont find satellites


Hi, Please check to make sure the GPS is set to USA and your time zone etc do this in the tools menu, then see if it will load the map.
check for updates @ "my.garmin.com"
you can also download a manual at garmin.com if needed.

Make sure you are clear nearby buildings, depends on satellites currently visible, and the length of time your GPS has been on.these may have an affect on getting a satellite signal but mostly they are suppose work just fine.


You may need a car adapter with a reciever in it.they cost about $119.00 at bestbuy. ouch! e know if this helped at all.

I would try to exchange it for a new one, it hasnt been that long that you have it.
Hope this helps, let me know what happened. good luck!

Garmin 680 -cannot acquire satellites


Im not 100% but im thinking that if the ribbon connecting the reciever to the unit can become dislogged or damaged, im trying to find a replacement ribbon.
