Garmin GPS will not pick up satallites

My garmin GPS 2610 just keeps saying ''searching for satellites'' and I'm not sure why?? At first I thought the cord was the problem, (that plugs into the lighter) and replaced that but it is still not working.

Any suggestions??

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.

I just picked up a Garmin StreetPilot 2610/2650 at a yard sale and was wondering if I need to change the previous address on the disc(does it even have an address?) that is provided in the unit for it to...


You don't say what problem you are having, and I don't know what you mean by the disc.

The Garmin knows where you are, and for navigation, you don't need to tell it where you live.

You may want to reset the location for "Home" in your favorites.

Some Garmins have a security feature that requires you to enter a password, or be at a specific location, before they can be used. If this feature is enabled, and you don't have the required information, there is no easy way to override it except by sending it back to Garmin.

GPS won't pick up satellite reception.


Let's assume the unit is in good conditions. When you travel for more than 500 Kms the unit need more time to acquire the satellites, so the solution is to keep the unit on in a uncovered area for about 15 minutes.

Screen appears to freeze up


Try updating the unit software. A new satellite was launched this year and has been causing problems. The updates from Garmin fix it. Disable the WAAS in the meantime and see if that solves the problem in the meantime.

You can go to Garmin and print out the owneers manual and that might help.

Also, antennas are cheap on Ebay.

My Garmin has stopped finding destinations - just says "Searching for Satellite)+


I had the same problem with my Nuvi 310. Found a solution in here that works. Here's a copy of the advice.....note you will need to get in the car and set it for a destination and go. 5-10 mins later the Garmin Nuvi will lose the satellites, but don't adjust it it, leave it on and keep going. Eventually after about an hour it will right itself, pick up the satellites and evrything will be back to normal.

Here's the advice:

I experienced the same problem about acquiring satellite signal even when it's a clear sunny day. After 30 mintues, it was still searching!
The unit appeared to have "stuck" in this acquiring mode. The following worked for me:
1) open the GPS antenna
2) press the bottom left screen while holding the power button to turn the unit on
3) enter maintenace mode
4) select diagnostics
5) clear error report, do NOT clear any user data
6) restart unit the usual way

My GPS 350 was able to acquire satellite signal in less than 1 minute after the above steps were taken.

Locating satellites


This takes about 15 to 30+ min. Make sure you are in an open area and NO XM or serious receivers turned on!
