Question about Garmin nuvi 205W GPS Receiver
I just barely started using my new nuvi about 2 weeks ago and just recently i tried to get directions somewhere and it cant find satellites no matter where i go . right now im trying to put in a new addy and its stuck at the previous map from before where i had no satellites. is there a way to reset or to fix it?
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!
