Cobra Nav One 4500 Portable GPS system

I have a Cobra Nav One 4500 GPS system that is not working properly. It was working properly last year, but now it doesn't seem to know where it is, its not finding the satellite. Does this ubit need to be upgraded each year ? What do I need to do to get it working again ?
My email address is dec5555@hotmail.com and my phone number is 504-577-8746. Can I ship this to you for repair ? Please let me know
what I need to do.

Of course you have already got it in a good place that is known to get good reception. It has a clear view of the sky. If all this is true.
I would take that unit to a good local shop that repairs GPS/Fishfinder/offshore depth combo units for fishermen. There are some good repair guys in those places. If they can't help you I would send it to the factory. Here's the address.

Trying to map update new cobra 6500


1- You need to install cobras update software which is available at their website.
2- Seem to remember that you had to register the unit with cobra otherwise the software would never work. (Might be in error on that though)

Once that is done it should update with no problem.

Adding addresses


Have you tried resetting unit to the factory default? To get to this, press the snake button, then settings, then user settings. On the last page you will see reset to factory defaults. This will erase all info on the device as if it were new.
