I was driving along and I got a message "lost satellite reception.


Put it on the dashboard when it is acquiring signal, that helps it faster. If it locks up like that, disconnected the power for 20 seconds and then power it back on.

It won't pick up the satellite signal so its stuck at it last place searching for a satellite feed.


Should not take more than that unless you have installed a new set of maps in a new location. Call Garmin to confirm. Try installing latest firmware for unit to see if that resolves the issue.

If that does not do the trick then maybe...................................

Gps singal lost


Often, when your GPS is in a "covered" area ... e.g. inside a building, in a tunnel, under a bridge, amongst / under tall buildings, etc... when there is no open space (directly) between your GPS and the satellites, your GPS will loose its satellite signals. If you're in such locations, try to find some "open space" and wait a bit for the signals to be picked up again.
Another common reason why the GPS doesn't get signals, or doesn't get the signals quickly, is because the "latest" satellite positions (locations) have not been updated in your GPS. If/when you connect your GPS to your computer (e.g. using HOME ) and download the GPS satellite (QuickFix) location information, your GPS will have the most recent locations of the satellites in your vicinity/region. With this information, your GPS can pick up the signals more quickly ... instead of having to search/scan around to find the signals ... which can take a bit more time. While your GPS is searching for the satellite signals, it shows the "signal lost" or "no GPS signal" message.

Nuvi 200w will not pick up sattalites


Make sure you are outside and as much in the open as possible. Staying stationary is the best way to insure a satellite signal. Give your GPS a few minutes if necessary to pick up a satellite signal. Also remember poor weather can effect a satellite signal reaching your GPS, just like it will satellite TV.

Garmin 660 reads as acquiring satellite and stays stuck in this screen. Reset default settings, moved around outside to get the signal.


satellite receivers seem to be doing this on cloudy days also bad line of sight to the sky. say the unit is being blocked from seeing out the window properly or is in to far from the windshield it will not have a direct line of sight with the sky. thus no signal acquisition.

these units rely on signal triangulation to track your Xiamath location it takes 4 satellites to give your exact or near exact coordinates consider that your line of sight is not the problem then is say theirs a issue with eh unit and it may be defective. but try holding it outside the car a second like out the window and see if it picks Anny satellite up. if so then line of sight is probably the issue here. good luck and thanks for using fixya service.

Cannot locate saltellite or Acquiring satellite


The error means it can't pick up valid GPS signals. In other words, bad reception.

Has the unit ever worked? Does the unit have an internal or external antenna? Are the batteries fully charged?

Try the unit outside with clear view of sky instead of in the car. This will give it the best chance of picking up a GPS signal.

If it still doesn't then suggest something broken inside.

Stuck at last location I went to


when your device is stuck from the previous location, it simply means that you have lose your signal to your device...try to hard reset : turn off for 1 minute and then turn on...make sure when you turned on that you are in an open space and no tall buildings or mountains surrounding the area. if inside the car place it on the holder. or else there is a problem already on the signal antenna, check your warranty for replacement.

No signal


You will have to leave the unit out in the open so it can 'see' the satellites. It might need from 20-30 minutes to acclimatize itself to the new location. It is set at Kansas because that's where the manufacturer is, so that is the last recorded satellite signal.
