The GPS seems stuck on acquiring satellite. Any fix?

Usually if you did not use the GPS for a long time, it would take quite a while to acquire the satellite. Be patient!. The other reason is to make sure that you are not in covered area, go to outside and try again, it may take as long as 5-10 mins. Good luck!

How i can reset an a lowrance endura sierra?

Hello there:
here is what you can try to do is first unplug any power going to the unit and remove the battery these units have a internal reset device that will reset it'self after a given amount of time which is about 1 hour.
during this time press in on the power button for 2 minutes and if it has a reset button it press in on this for 2 min leave the battery and the power out of the unit for the rest of the remaining time i had mentioned.
now plug in the power cord back in it and start the unit now if it works ok simply turn off and replace the battery and you are now done ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

I just purchased a new garmin and cannot seem to find a connecting with satellite.

A new never before used garmin may take a few mins to find it's location.....just leave it on outside or a close to a window for at least 10 mins not moving it.
That should do it.
After that should turn on and find your location in seconds. has pre loaded maps?
do you have to install any maps with your model?

MYGUIDE 3100 GO( geodb ctor )STAYS ON screen

Sounds like a software problem. Insert the maps backup cd with your unit attatched to the computer by usb. An option of reinstalling original software will appear, click on this after 10 mins it should be back to how you first got it

Loss of signal after about 10 minn of time

If it happens around the same suburb the sattelite can't get to that area.

Or it is programmed for another location meaning : it wont display most of the places near you.

Or if its old it wasn't programmed with all the streets as new streets do get built alot.

Also this GPS is a pretty bad one as I am already dealing with 5 others They are all 660s and are the only GPS with problems.

Hope this helps - Josh

There is a reset button (hole) underneath by the plug-in bar. It is real small, you'll need a small paper clip straighten out
