Garmin street pilot 2610 not picking up satellite during heavy cloud coverage??please advise. Thank you jimd


The GPS signals will not be affected by clouds, rain, fog,
snow, etc. You probably need to relocate the position of the gps in your vehicle due to weak signal where it is now located.

My tomtom is not receiving any satellite signal


You should use your computer to update the QuickFix positions of the Satellites (they do wander in the sky). To get signals you should be outside buildings with an unobstructed view to the sky.

Gps singal lost


Often, when your GPS is in a "covered" area ... e.g. inside a building, in a tunnel, under a bridge, amongst / under tall buildings, etc... when there is no open space (directly) between your GPS and the satellites, your GPS will loose its satellite signals. If you're in such locations, try to find some "open space" and wait a bit for the signals to be picked up again.
Another common reason why the GPS doesn't get signals, or doesn't get the signals quickly, is because the "latest" satellite positions (locations) have not been updated in your GPS. If/when you connect your GPS to your computer (e.g. using HOME ) and download the GPS satellite (QuickFix) location information, your GPS will have the most recent locations of the satellites in your vicinity/region. With this information, your GPS can pick up the signals more quickly ... instead of having to search/scan around to find the signals ... which can take a bit more time. While your GPS is searching for the satellite signals, it shows the "signal lost" or "no GPS signal" message.

No way to change the date, either from the device or from the PC...


The unit gets the date and time from the GPS satellite system, so you don't have to "change the date".

Cannot locate saltellite or Acquiring satellite


The error means it can't pick up valid GPS signals. In other words, bad reception.

Has the unit ever worked? Does the unit have an internal or external antenna? Are the batteries fully charged?

Try the unit outside with clear view of sky instead of in the car. This will give it the best chance of picking up a GPS signal.

If it still doesn't then suggest something broken inside.

Can't change date on garmin forerunner 305


My 305 takes a while to locate satelites sometimes too, otherdays it is only a minute or so. Try not to be standing near the sides of any buildings / houses (out in the open) and also stand still if you are wearing it while it is locating the sattelites. Better still, I like to put it on the ground or on a table (outside) when I turn it on so the receiver is facing directly up to the sky when it is first turning on (while you are stretching or something), then put it on when it is ready to go.

Have you tried in the settings to change your location, then it will get you to confirm the date?

Quest not receiving signal


The antenna socket has probably become unsoldered - follow this writeup for more information.
