Try recharging it fully on ac charger, failing that you have damaged thew SIIRF chip and that is costly to repair.. claim on insurance and buy an Altina, tomtom are cheap and nasty and expensive to repair. try www.nettiser.com.au/marbella for a decent unit when you get your insurance momey. they are supported in adelaide not singapore or china.

GPS 40 will not finish aquiring signal


make sure the gps have a full view of the sky. leave it in aquiring mode and let it sit there. My Emap took up to 35 mins once to reaquire the sats and get the updated info needed for position info.
if the unit has been off for a long time or moved a long distance from where it was last turned on, it can take a while for it to come back up.

Garmin fortrex 101 won't aquire any satelites


Does it pick up any at all? you need 3 to get a fixed posistion. If you see one or two picking up then it may be your location. Also try doing a firmware update, I have seen that fix this problem on other units.

This seems to be a common problem and my unit has the same issue. Hopefully someone from Garmen monitors this forum and will offer a suggestion or explaination. Perhaps leaving the units in a hot car in the summer fries something that affects sensitivity of the unit.

I have a Nuvi 200w that I received last December as a gift. This unit takes forever to aquire a satellite. The "DIFFICULY AQUIRING SATELLITES" message comes on 90% of the times I try to use it....


While under warranty.... yes.... Make sure it's been registered on their site before calling them and requesting an RMA number.

Good luck!

Receiver not picking up satalites


Sometimes it could take up to 10-30 mins with the GPS turned on and in a clear sky veiw , also not moving -like just laying on the porch or dashboard of a car to re-aquire sats and it datum table.

If that does not work, to fix the antenna would mean prying the unit apart to access the connection on the board.
