Question about Garmin Quest GPS Receiver
I have the same or similar probelm with my Garmin Quest as Ilya12000 has. But the 'funny thing' is, that I can see about 10 very strong satellites signals, when I switch to the 'indoor mode' ('use inddors'/'GPS is off'). When I switch back to the 'acquiring satellites' mode all satellite signals have disappeared. Of course I use all ways to acquire the satellites: Automatic, use map ... Went through all my settings, did a reset, updated... everything. The only thing I did not, was to open the device, as I assume that the antenna/arial works well, because of the above mentioned. Could it be, that the Quest got too hot on my dashboard?
Hello, I currently own a Garmin quest myself, and some time ago I had some strange problems myself, I am a electronics technician, and I do have a work around for you. I will explain the problems and a cure for you to try, none of the work arounds depend on any parts to be removed.
1. NO RECEIVING SATELLITE TELEMETRY. I beleieve this could be due to a number of reasons, but more so at sometime corrupted telemetry was the problem to fix this,
a turn GPS on when booted (initialised)
b. depress menu
select Time Setup
when in Time Setup depress MENU
Select SET DATE
Depress OK button
Depress OK button again on the numberic keypad that appears on the screen (DONE)
what this seems to do is resets the internal date/time clock and the unit starts to work again.
the Second workaround is this but takes hours to perform.
Simply turn the Guest on and allow the battery to fully discharge, usually this works to TOTALLY flush the Memory again, but on my unit I have to setup all the maps again, this is easy to perform, but just takes time. I hope this helps you.
