Try to change the antena? what the hell does that Suppose to mean. Where am I going to get an antenna and better yet why should I change the antenna on a unit the still has warranty. The idiots at Garmin could not figure it out so how should I???

well you need to update the firmware of your gps also call garmin customer support they are great tell them about the map, also the poor satelite cover might be because of your location or weather conditions

The unit needs to have the screen facing up. The unit will not read if it is vertical. Garmin cust serv finally helped me with that one. Once you turn on the unit, it could take up to 20 minutes (usually about 3) to grab satelites.
