SOURCE: i have Garmin Gps map 210 saying searching the sky

I have the same unit that is having screen problems. I have been unable to locate parts for this unit. I was told that there are no parts available for these units. I am looking to buy a screen that will replace mine. I am trying to find the specs so that I can find a manufacturer with a unit I can fix my GPS with. Or, if you are interested in selling yours at a decent price, let me know.

Garmin Mobile PC cannot find gps signal when it scans for BU 353

You must make sure you are outside when you do it or in such a place that you can see the sky, as if you cannot see the sky, the signal cannot get to you, the GPS signal doesn't go through buildings very well. especially if low down. You need to set it up, with a clear path to satellite.

Garmin wrong location

Sounds like it needs to be reset and download a new 'catalog' and time set. That will then allow it to figure out where it really is. Check your manual for doing a hard reset. Might involve pulling the battey or holding the power switch on that model. Do this someplace where it can see the sky ie preferably outside and then reset and let it download and rest itself. It can take up to about 45 minutes for it to finish but after that you should be back to knowing where you are.

Wont search for sattelites


Does your unit have an external aerial as shown in the pic, If so double check the connection from the aerial into back of the fishfinder, lube with water proof grease (Non-conductive)

You do not say whether it has worked before.

Also need to know where it is located on boat, it must have a view of sky overhead (If internal antennae)

Ext antennae must also be in view of sky, not under "solid" cover.
