Check that the date shown on the unit is correct. If not, choose autolocate and allow about 10 minutes for the unit to find satellites. If this works, then the internal lithium ion battery is defective.

Garmin 298. Why doesn't it pick up signals?


Hello

if your device has been turned of for weeks or months, this might be the cause

What you need to do is to perform an "AutoLocate" procedure

Turn off your device

Press and hold the Page button and Power ON the device

Continue to hold both the Page and Power button until the "I Agree" button is highlighted in the lower right corner of the screen

Press the Enter button

The device should now switch to the GPS satellite screen. Leave the device in clear view of the sky for at least 10-20 minutes to acquire satellites.

If Problem persists, you have to update the internal operating software of the device to the latest version.

296 takes forever to acquire satalites.


If you don't use it very often it can take time to find its location. Have you tried using the 'set initial location' option? Once it knows roughly where it is and what time it is it can then work out which satellites it should be looking for instead of searching for any/all of them. The manual does say that it will take time if it has no initial clue as to where on the planet it is, and if you're on the move while it's trying to work that out then it may take even longer. Obviously, if it has a poor view of the sky, or if most of the satellites are behind you and you have a tin roofed aircraft then that will probably not help either.

Remove the battery, open the chassis and locate the internal backup battery (size of a small coin), disconnect it and let it stay disconnected for 24-48 hours.

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

Also, antennas are cheap on Ebay.

My Garmin GPSMAP 76S will no longer accquire any satellites


I had the same problem? GPSmap76S was hung up trying to AutoLocate. It just couldn’t find itself, and it just stopped working all of a sudden one day, while I was traveling. I spoke with Garmin about the problem, and they advised me of an ongoing problem with WAAS. I was told that I should "Disable" WAAS, because the signal from the WAAS satellites had been changed by the government, and Garmin had not yet put out a software update to address the problem, on the 76 units, anyway. Also said that an update "should" come out, in the future, however, no commitment or promise on that. Evidently, once your unit hits one of the WAAS signals, it scrambles up the receiver in the GPS, because mine sure went crazy. The support guy also said, that if this did not correct the problem, I might also want to try a "Master Reset". So here’s what happened.
I disabled WAAS, but this did not correct the problem. The unit was still lost out there somewhere, trying to AutoLocate, so I ended up doing the “Master Reset”. Please read up on this procedure before trying it, and understand that you “will loose” any settings that you might have made to the GPS, along with all waypoints, routes, tracks, etc., however, my maps actually remained in tact? This procedure will actually set the unit back, just as it was when it originally came from the factory. Once completed, you will then have to allow the unit to initialize it's self again, just as you did when the unit was new. If you have forgotten about doing that, it simply means that you need to set the unit outdoors and leave it “on” for a while (15 – 20 minutes), until it actually AutoLocates it’s self, or locks in on your current position. Once this is done, re-do your setting preferences, back to the way you had them before the Master Reset. At the very least, you’ll have to re-set it to the correct time zone, and tell it about daylight savings time. Note: It’s a very good idea to go thru first, and jot down your page settings and main menu settings, before doing this procedure, or the screens may not look familiar to you, once the unit resets. You think you’ll remember them all, but you won’t. But whatever, once you have done the “Reset” and “Initialization”, you must now hook the GPS up to the computer and reload your waypoints, routes, etc, back to the GPS. You did have them saved on your computer, didn’t you? Hope so… If so, you should now be good to go…………….
My unit now works like a champ, good as new, just not as accurate, due to WAAS being turned off. I still don't know if the WAAS issue, was part of the problem or not, but I do know that the Master Reset got the unit back to working immediately, allowing it to locate itself almost instantly. What a relief…………..it’s a little work, but it takes much less time than it took you to read this post…………..
Hey, when all else fails, call Garmin 1-800-800-1020. They are good guys and willing to help, in fact, I would advise you to call them before you do anything, so you can describe to them, exactly what your unit is doing. I am only relating my situation and what happened to me. Your situation may be different……. .
