Question about Navman iCN 330 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

External Antenna Conection

We have a heated front windscreen in our car which means we have to have a special antenna attachment for it to receive a signal. Have got it out today ready to use and can't find a connection point on stand, charger or sat nav itself.

Any Solutions

Ref ICN330. The external antenna connection is on the top side of the flip up Antenna on the unit itself. There is a small rubber plug covering this, adjacent to the Navman logo.. Ricmac

We have the garmin nuvi 255wt and no matter where we are going the trip is interrupted numerous times with "LOST SATELLITe" We purchased the same one for our son and he never has to deal with...


The windscreens on some cars block out the gps signal. The best way to see if this is your problem is to switch satnavs with your son for a while and see if he has the same problem or if you have the problem with his satnav. If this is the case you may need to purchase an external gps antenna. You can get one from http://www.amazon.com/Powerful-External-Amplified-Antenna-Receiver/dp/B000ZKUR1W for $9.89. Even if the windscreen is not the problem it will boost your signal and may solve the problem.

Sometimes updating the software on your satnav solves the problem. To update your software download and install, to your computer, WEBUPDATER from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27, Connect your satnav to your computer and run the program.

I hope this solves your problem.

I have a Garmin 3600. When I want to use the GPS feature, and I open the antenna, all I get is Acquiring Satellites, but nothing happens (the little indicatior on the bottom shows activity). I thinkthere...


If you can obtain an external antenna from another IQ3600 user it
will plug into the connecter on the top of the unit and bypass the fold out antenna. I had to buy one because the windshield in my Pont Montanna would block the satalite signals. When I plug in the external antenna I do not have to fold out the antenna on the unit.
That will check to see if the unit is recieving and /or if the fold out
wire is broken. The external antenna is not Garmin specific but the
plug on the end is so another gps antenna with the same end plug works.

Loeses satelite recption


Few reasons this may occur, most you can do something about.

1) Make sure the battery is fully charged before commencing journey ( USB or mains charger)
2) Plug the GPS in after the engine is started to protect the delicate SIIRF chip.NEVER Start engine with GPS connected.
3) Ensure you have a clear uninterrupted view ofd the sky. Place the GPS closer to the windscreen if poss and away from Phone..stereo or other electronic devices

4) If your unit supports it get an external antenna to plug in ( magnetic base mouse antenna)

5) check BAUD and PORT are set correctly.

No gps signals at times


What times are those? What's different when you can get signal?

You won't be able to get a signal in tunnels, when you're in amongst tall buildings, and other times when the view of the sky is blocked.

You might consider getting an external antenna if you have a windshield that blocks signal (e.g. heated windscreen).

Garmin 330 wont locate satellites in van only.


Do you have a heat reflecting windscreen? These are a total barrier to GPS signals. It may be getting the odd satellite through the side windows if you have such a windscreen. An external antenna, such as the ones supplied by Gilsson.co, would be ideal but you need to have an external antenna socket on the GPS. Not many car units have this feature. Another option is to try a re-radiating antenna but I've not seen these for ages - bought my last ones from www.rnrplace.com

Unit does not pick up satellites but recognizes when antenna is open


I have a unit like that. The antenna appears to be dead. It just searches forever and never finds anything. I use an external antenna that I got from eBay (brand is Gilsson) and it works fine. You just plug it in the external jack (after removing the little rubber plug) and it works even better than the built-in antenna.

This problem can have several causes.
  1. A component fault on the units internal antenna circuit board.
  2. ribbon cable has become detatched inside that connects antenna board with main circuit board.
  3. A software fault.
  4. A component fault on the processor board.
All the above except number 3 will require proffessional investigation. if its a software fault then you may be able to recover data by a re-install through TomTom Home or by recovery backup ( you did make a backup of your SD card , didn't you ? ) of your SD card.

Has this problem just devoloped, did it work before and it's now broken or have you just obtained this device or installed it into a new car.

your car might have athermic windscreen/heated windscreen. check the details of your car and see what UV protection your car has as often you will not get a signal through your windscreen if you have any special glass.

The solution to this would be an external antenna.

other wise how good are you at soldering. you might have a lose connection on the internal antenna. from all the bumping it does in your windows while driving it could have losened something inside.

IQue Resets itself when using antenna


When I left it running eventually it came up with a "Fatal Alert" message:
"SystemMgr.c, Line 5852, SysLinkerStub(): Failed to load the Shared Library.

I don't know what this means or how to correct it. I am in the Caribbean and was also affected. Thanks!
