KEEPS LOSING SATELLITE CONNECTION

THE GPS KICKS OUT FREQUENTLY, ESPECIALLY IT SEEMS AT MOMENTS WHEN I REALLY NEED IT. THE MESSAGE IS "LOST SATELLITE RECEPTION." THIS CAN'T BE NORMAL BECAUSE NO ONE WOULD WANT A PRODUCT THAT DOES THIS ALL THE TIME.

It may be because of the weak signals that your device gets.may be the signal reciving part of your device is faulty and cannot catch signals .or also possible there are some loose internal connections.

After 2 - 10 Minutes Satellite connection is lost


Try this and see if it fixes your problem....first disable bluetooth then follow these steps.

1. Power off the unit.

2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).

3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to recover from the above problem.

Garmin 310. Bought March 2007, working perfectly until 1100 yesterd, then kept losing satellites, then coming back and so on. By 1200 lost all satellite connection. Satellite screnn shows no activity...


Please read the solution that resolved this problem for someone else. Most likely, you have already tried this.

If the above procedure does not work for you, the entire antenna assembly will need to be replaced.
The other option is to purchase an external antenna for your Nuvi and plug it into the external antenna port (gold connector) on the Nuvi antenna assembly.

Lost satellite reception


I have the same problem, and so far the only solution is patience. If you are in a cutting, or between tall buildings, and the satellites are low down on the horizon, then it seems reasonable that reception will be between poor and zero. But in wide open spaces mine too sometimes loses the signal. Hang in there, and contact is restored.

I am losing satelite connection frequently. Sometime for a few seconds and sometime for up to ten minutes


Hello jacke328,

In order to maintain satellite connection your GPS receiver needs a clear view of the sky. If you are operating the GPS in areas where the view of the sky is limited due to tall buildings, hills and mountains, or dense forest, your GPS is liable to lose signal from one or more satellites and this can impact the receiver's ability to determine your current location.

If you are operating the GPS inside your vehicle an external antenna may help significantly. The body of the vehicle can act as a shield, blocking the GPS's ability to receive satellite signals. This is why most manufacturers recommend installing GPS receivers on the dashboard with a clear view of the windshield as this maximizes the amount of visible sky. Installing an external antenna on the vehicle and connecting this to the GPS can help significantly, however.

Depending on the geography of where you are operating the GPS, you may have to live with an occasional loss of connectivity. With proper mounting you can minimize this, however.

Best Regards
Ken

"no antenna" message


It could be the antenna wire is shorted especially if its the lower gauge wire.

Antenna's are fairly inexpensive to replace you could test it by setting a different antenna on the dashboard and see if the previous antenna is bad.

Keeps losing power


The faceplate may have a bent pin, or is not fully clicking into place.

Before getting all worked up, try pressing the release button to remove the face plate and carefully inspecting the areas where they click into the main unit, small pieces of debris may be stuck in the clips, if this is not the case, carefully re-insert the face plate, making sure to have aligned the guides before pressing the face plate back into place. You should hear a nice confirming click when the face plate is in place.

Bent pin or contact, can easily be spotted by grabbing a magnifying glass and looking at the allignment of each pin, take extra care when straightening the pin if this is the case.

**Tip**
Most solutions can come from closer inspection ...
ie: with a magnifying glass.
