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.

Garmin GPS GSMAP 182C Chartplotter will not boot up


If the unit doesn't go further from the reading card. this may indicate that theres a problem in the memory card.

Not being able to a get a signal lock on satellites would indicate a problem either in the software something is wrong or not geting loaded correctly (the memory card) Or a hardware problem.

You may have to take it in for service if you are unable to check the memory card or replace it.

Tomtom wont turn on after chaging it


Reset your TomTom GPS receiver. Some TomTom users report occasional difficulty in getting their TomTom navigation device to start or respond to commands. If this happens to you, remedy the problem by performing a soft reset on your TomTom GPS. A soft reset will reset the data on your TomTom GPS receiver without erasing any data. To reset a TomTom GPS receiver, press and hold the "On/Off" button for 15 seconds or until the device restarts.

Let your TomTom GPS acquire the necessary satellite signals outside. If the device has trouble connecting to the satellite signals necessary for its operation, try an easy fix to the problem. Take your TomTom GPS receiver outside, away from mountains, tall buildings or heavy foliage, where the receiver has a clear view of the sky. Wait for a few moments while the device acquires the necessary satellite signals.

Does not pick up satellite signals


The gps device is not receiving signal simply because the strength to receive signal is weak. What you have to do is to reset the gps device by holding the power button for about 15 seconds or there about, then you release it when the gps restarts. It will acquire signal after resetting the device.If it does not acquire satellite signal. You can also try to use the gps in an open space where the gps will be facing the sky, if it does not, then you replace the antenna of the gps device.

Hope this information helped.

I cannot acquire satellites signal. What to do ?


I experienced the same problem about acquiring satellite signal even when it's a clear sunny day. After 30 mintues, it was still searching! The unit appeared to have "stuck" in this acquiring mode. The following worked for me: 1) open the GPS antenna 2) press the bottom left screen while holding the power button to turn the unit on 3) enter maintenace mode 4) select diagnostics 5) clear error report, do NOT clear any user data 6) restart unit the usual way My GPS 350 was able to acquire satellite signal in less than 1 minute after the above steps were taken.
