GPS can not locate satellites.


Where did you try this? GPS signals are "line of sight" only and will be blocked by even thin metallic coatings. Some high-end european cars have window coatings that block GPS signals.

If the unit is new, it may take it a long time to get its first fix, It trys to look for the satellites it thinks it should see at whatever location it last was and at whatever time it thinks it is. After it first locks on to a satellite, it will eventually download new ephemeris data and correct itself, but this may take a while.

make sure you are trying this outside where the GPS has a clear view of the sky. You can go to the system settings page and set your location and time and that will help it find satellites quicker than it would if it thinks it is somewhere else at some other time.

If you still can't get satellites, you may have a bad internal antenna or receiver.

If you have already tried what I suggest, contact Garmin for their free technical support.

How do I change the start location?


The "current location" is based on the stellite tracking of your GPS. Turn it on OUTSIDE for 10-15 minutes and allow it to get a lock on the GPS satellites and it will get your actual location. There is no way for you to "force" a current location on the GPS.

Unit thinks it is in kansas, cannot use in al.


Have to set "Home" before the unit starts behaving properly. Do that by using the "Where To Button" -> "My Locations" -> Set Home

Resetting Home


I'm not sure I understand the question. When you take the unit outside and turn it on, does it show you in Tampa, or Decatur? If it still shows you in Tampa check the satellite status in the tools menu, you may not be acquiring your current location.

If you're talking about the home location that is saved into your GPS as a waypoint, go into your favorite places list and delete the place named "home" then go to the location you want to save as your new home and press "where to" and then "home". Since there is no home saved, the GPS will ask if you want to save your current location as home. That should do it for you.
