Garmin Nuvi Firmaware Update Complete, Unable to catch satellite signal

Garmin nuvi200 was working fine and all of a sudden started getting following pop ups repeatedly and since then the GPS unit is not able to catch the satellite signal.

"Updating GPS Firmware 1%" This is followed by another pop up stating "GPS Firmware Update Complete". It can't "acquire satellites" either

I am still not able understand, how it started firmware update as I have never connected it to PC before. Is this set sophisticated enough to do firmware update from the satellite? :)


I tried reset on Garmin. After that, also tried with installing new latest firmware through Garmin Webupdater, But no results.

As soon as I start Garmin unit I get above popups. Please Help me.



My Garmin Nuvi 200W suffers from the same problem. Only difference is the unit still works. It is only an irritation. I have installed the latest software update, but still no change. Have reported to Garmin on this, but has yet to get a response. i have the garmin nuvi 660 euro

i was driven in germany and the signel was just lost it has not come bk since ? what is wrong wiht it

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.

So what happens when you connect it to the PC?
Make sure no sd cards are installed while you do this.
download and install web updater, run it it gets to a screen where it looks for the gps, plug the usb cable into the GPS (no USB hubs please!!!) Make sure it detects the GPS before you continue. Select the updates you need (don't install all the languages !!) after this is done the program will report the downloads are on the garmin, unplug the unit and it will reboot and whilst rebooting it will install the updates....so don't touch it until it reboots again and displays the regular screen....and make sure the batery is fully charged before you do this...!

Bluetooth icon missing


The Nuvi 750 does NOT include bluetooth capability. I don't know what you saw, or what you think you saw, but Garmin's website is very clear on this issue. NO BLUETOOTH WITH THE NUVI 750

I have a garmin nuvi and the cable that you put into your cigarette lighter will not work. I changed the fuse and it still will not keep the unit charged. I can charge it on my computer with a usb cable....


Do you see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph? This indicates that its charging. If it's under warranty, please contact Garmin on their website. www.garmin.com and call them. No need to worry about this if its under warranty. Send them your charger too.

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
