    I also had the "Lost Satellite Signal" with my
    Flip Up Antenna Nuvi 350 after 18 Months.

    Garmin Supports only response: "Out of warranty, send $175 to repair".

    For $175 I could buy a brand new Wide Screen unit.

    Poor antenna design, poor customer support, buy Garmin at your
    own risk.

    Your flip-up antenna/receiver assembly needs to be replaced. I can help you with that.

SOURCE: Garmin NUVI 660 - can not locate satellite

The nuiv 660 is the worse product Ihave ever purchased. For those whoe are thinking of buying a GPS research this product. It is the most unstable device I know. Considering I purchased it new and only less then 1 month down the track it starts crashing and doing completely what its not suppose to do it is not a good GPS to have. It is unreliable and you cant trust a system which freezes frequently and leave you helpless.

SOURCE: garmin nuvi 660 forget my pin

The only options you have when it comes to a locked unit is to enter the correct PIN, go to the location where the PIN was set, or send the unit back to Garmin. There is no way to unlock a PIN locked unit without the correct PIN or location.

Will not acquire satellite signal and continously updates firmare


I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W. I am going to recommend a HARD RESET for you, to try and break the firmware update cycle you said you are locked into. Once you have successfully completed the WebUpdate, satellite acquisition will be vastly improved with the new system software.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites (if your pc will still recognize it or you have a memory chip you can pop into a card reader).
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Try performing a reset of the unit. Hold down the bottom right of the touchscreen and turn the unit on. It will ask you whether you want to reset allk data. Choose yes and try again. This should solve your problem. Hope this helps.
