Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My Garmin is stuck in simulation mode at one of my last locations

Somehow the "current location" is set at one of the last places that I went and now everything that I put in is simulated and starts at that location instead of where I am.
I have tried changed just about everything that i can think of.

It won't pick up the satellite signal so its stuck at it last place searching for a satellite feed.


Should not take more than that unless you have installed a new set of maps in a new location. Call Garmin to confirm. Try installing latest firmware for unit to see if that resolves the issue.

If that does not do the trick then maybe...................................

Hello,

Either you are in GPS simulator mode or you are unable to receive satellite signals. go into your tools menu Tools > Settings > System > "check if GPS simulator is activated". De activate if it is and your unit should work fine, if this dosent work try giving the unit an update using Garmins WebUpdater software it can be obtained from this link http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp.

Hope this helps!

  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch System
  4. Turn ON the GPS Simulator
  5. Touch OK
  6. Hold Back to return to the main menu
  7. Touch Where To?
  8. Touch Favorites
  9. Select a favorite location
  10. Touch Show Map
  11. Touch Set Location
  12. Hold Back to return to the main menu
  13. Touch Tools1
  14. Select Where Am I
Here you will see the coordinates for the saved location.
1. For nuvi 200 series units that do not have the Where Am I feature, skip the above steps 13-14. The coordinates can be found by pressing the vehicle icon on the View Map page.

When was the last time you went into the your settings and update your software or configured the unit? On cloudy days you can't do this. On a bright sunny day go outside and try this.

Garmin Nuvi 300 - SD problem


I believe your current location is somewhere in UK/Ireland, which means the Nuvi's last/current satellite fix is not anywhere within Spain/Portugal. If you need to use the maps features of that country where you're not physically there with the Nuvi, the Nuvi must be in Simulation mode first. Fold down the antenna to switch off GPS (not device) and enter Simulation mode.

Then, scroll the map screen (combinations of zooming out, browsing, and zooming in to the spot) until you find the location you want to simulate (it must be within the maps coverage). Then, tap 'Set Loc' at the bottom of the screen. At this point, as far as the Nuvi is concerned, this is the GPS location where you are at. Then you may proceed with Address Search, etc. using the other map's database.

Garmin not recognising roads


Simulation is where it simulates where your trip will take you. Enter a new destination and don't select simulate trip.

Location says I'm in Kansas


I got stuck in Kansas also. But, now I'm not in Kansas anymore! Are you trying to set your Garmin up indoors? That was my first problem. Go outdoors and try it. I did that and Toto and I were still in Kansas. SO, I pluged it inot my cigarette lighter and drove down my driveway. It took a few minutes for Garmin to locate a satalite, but once it did I was all set. No problems since, hope it works for you. I really enjoy using my Garmin. I'm one who ofter ends up on the road less traveled so, Garmin has come to my rescue a few times already. Have fun and say hello to the Wizard of Oz for me!
