  • panther12mom Aug 15, 2008

    Same problem. Searches for signal, asks the same questions, searches again, then times out and goes off. Just installed the new 2009 updated maps, thinking that would help. Now it won't get a signal AT ALL. Very frustrating. Can't find a "reset" button.

    I have the same problem with my Garmin GPS C330.

    It will try Locating Satellites for good 5-10 minutes.

    Any one can help?

    If the operating system software in your GPS is not Ver. 5.70, you should update the unit.  Plug your GPS in to your PC and click this link: garmin updater 



    The update is free. (map updates are not)



    If the failure to acquire satellites is due to a software failure, this should solve the problem.  Otherwise there's a hardware problem which can only be repaired by sending it to Garmin.



    These are the only options available to you.  This information is accurate and at the very least rates a "thanks for trying".  Please update your rating.

GARMIN C330 WILL NOT LOCATE SATTELITE


Have you tried a Master Reset? It may help, but it WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. To do a Master Reset, turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the screen, then press and release the power button. Keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you are sure you want to reset. Follow the prompts.
