Question about Garmin nuvi 205W GPS Receiver
For first time use it will default to where it was manufactured and tested, which is usually in Kansas. The first time you use it will take the longest to acquire. It is said to take anywhere from 5 min to 45. I recommend bringing it with you in your car and let it chill out on the dash until it finds where its at. After that it should only take a minute to find your location.
If that doesn't work do a unit software update. You can find the appropriate file at: http://www8.garmin.com/support/download.jsp
