To receive XM weather or audio, the GPSMAP 740s requires a GXM 40 Smart Antenna with XM subscription.

Once a GXM 40 Smart Antenna has been connected to the GPSMAP 640, the device can display the subscription information for the antenna.

From the Home Page in Boating mode:

  1. Select Configure
  2. Select System
  3. Select System Information
  4. Choose Weather Subscription

From the Home Page in Driving mode:

  1. Select Tools

Hi iam from sweden and i got new navi i buy yesterday nuvi 1340 and i got satalite problem it cant finde somthing gps thinks iam in stockholm but iam in gothenburg and i have been testing it waited 3...


You should shut off the nuvi (recharge if required) and take it outdoors, to an open area that has a view of the southern sky. Place it on a non-moving object and turn it back on. Allow it to get a "fix" on a satellite signal - it shouldn't take more than 5 minutes or so at this point.

If you can't get it to work still, contact Garmin Support:

My maps have been wiped of my satnav


Here is what happens a lot of times when folks first get their GPS units. Go into your tools and repair your problem. I would suggest to start everything all over again being slow and putting in what you want slow and correct. It will work. If you have to, re call Garmin customer service for more help. The Satalite has to find you. Be sure you are getting a Signal. Look at your signal strength and be sure you have a good fully charge up battery. Hope this helps.

My GPS no longer is getting the satalite signal, what do I do now?


As described in your manual, try doing a manual reset. Depending on the model you may have to remove the fascia to get at thr reset button.

296 takes forever to acquire satalites.


If you don't use it very often it can take time to find its location. Have you tried using the 'set initial location' option? Once it knows roughly where it is and what time it is it can then work out which satellites it should be looking for instead of searching for any/all of them. The manual does say that it will take time if it has no initial clue as to where on the planet it is, and if you're on the move while it's trying to work that out then it may take even longer. Obviously, if it has a poor view of the sky, or if most of the satellites are behind you and you have a tin roofed aircraft then that will probably not help either.

Satalite Signal?


Have you tried resetting the unit? Have you done a master reset? If not, try these. Just be aware, a Master Reset will ERASE ALL YOUR FAVORITES.
