Check to make sure that the unit is not in demo mode. Go through the menus to find where the demo mode is located. Cycle it on and off.

If this does not work, I suggest calling Garmin tech support to find out if they have a simple solution.

In the worse case you will have to send the GPS in for service.

When you purchase a Garmin product you are given a key upon registration. If your Nuvi is registered then you need to go to Garmin and click on support. Here is a link to Garmins home page. Hope this helps, Sea Breeze

I tried to fix a problem similar to this for 1and 1/2 hours. Ahhh! However, after raising the antenna, (in back of device), the satellite picked up my exact location. Hope this helps.

Think I have the wrong battery, plug size is incompatible with my Garmin

You can likely just cut the plug off the new battery and cut the one off the old battery and solder the wires from the new battery to your old plug. I had to do that to mine. It works fine.
