Make sure you have good batteries fitted, some batteries will not be strong enough to allow a good connection.

other than that you have a faulty chip and that's expensive repair

My Garmin Novi can not find a satellite signal in Florida?


Assuming that your GPS can receive a satellite signal in other states, then it is likely the placement of your GPS in your vehicle. The satellites are in fixed orbit, so as you move southward, their position in the horizon changes relative to you. As a check, turn your GPS on outside of your vehicle with a clear line of sight to the heavens (no trees, buildings, etc.). You should get a satellite signal. If you still do not, then you have a problem with your unit. If you do get a signal outside, then rearrange placement of your GPS inside your vehicle.

1. Activate the TeleType GPS program

2. Select Tools>GPS Status>Status.

3. Look closely at the GPS output that is displayed in the View Status menu. Data should be flowing even when the GPS receiver has not locked in the position.

The data string that begins:
GPGSV... is "bad data" because the receiver has not locked into the satellites.

Whereas:
GPGSA... is "good data" indicating that the receiver has locked into the satellites. Remember - "A-Okay"

4. Once the data is flowing, go outside away from buildings, select the Satellites tab (Tools>GPS Status>Satellites), and watch the satellite signal strength

Magellan Roadmate 1412 won't track satellites


It might mean that the signal is disrupted. Might be a software glitch. Try going outside, get a clear view of the sky. Then reboot/reset the unit. Hold the switch to the reset position or off position for 10 seconds, it will shut off. then switch it back on. It should reacquire a signal within 2-5 minutes, then it will fix on your position. If that doesn't work, try updating your software. Call Magellan Tech Support for instructions.

Tomtom wont turn on after chaging it


Reset your TomTom GPS receiver. Some TomTom users report occasional difficulty in getting their TomTom navigation device to start or respond to commands. If this happens to you, remedy the problem by performing a soft reset on your TomTom GPS. A soft reset will reset the data on your TomTom GPS receiver without erasing any data. To reset a TomTom GPS receiver, press and hold the "On/Off" button for 15 seconds or until the device restarts.

Let your TomTom GPS acquire the necessary satellite signals outside. If the device has trouble connecting to the satellite signals necessary for its operation, try an easy fix to the problem. Take your TomTom GPS receiver outside, away from mountains, tall buildings or heavy foliage, where the receiver has a clear view of the sky. Wait for a few moments while the device acquires the necessary satellite signals.

Whenever I use location function using GPS, the phone just hangs. Any solution?


  • This may not fix the problem but here are some tips that will help. When it is "just hanging" it is trying to receive a satellite signal. These are helpful tips to receiving that signal.
  1. Make sure you are outside and in the open. This is a phone and while it has GPS functions you have to be in the most optimal position.
  2. GPS units that work well have an antenna made to receive satellite signals faster than the phone antenna.
  3. Make sure you are standing still and not driving or walking fast. You have to give the satellites time to lock in on your position.
  4. Bad weather or even an overcast can effect satellites transmissions.
  5. Satellites move around and sometimes they are temporary a bit out of range.
  6. If a signal is not found try again a bit later and see if the satellites signals are being received better.

I want to use the gps and navigator on my nokia 5800 can you please help


The Nokia 5800 has a built-in GPS satellite navigation receiver, which can tell you where you are anywhere on the planet. The 5800 also has cell-tower-positioning technology, which finds your location using the position of the nearest phone network mast if a satellite signal is unavailable. GPS is more accurate but can take a while (from 10 seconds to a few minutes, depending on how obstructed the sky is) to find your position ('Assisted GPS' is also present, to download the expected GPS satellite positions from the Internet and help speed up your fix.)
The 5800 also has a built-in mapping application called Nokia Maps, which shows you your location on a street map, tells you exactly how to get to another location by driving or walking, and can give details of nearby amenities such as shops, fuel stations, museums, etc. Nokia Maps uses both GPS and cell tower positioning to tell you where you are: the latter gives an instant rough position, while GPS data is used after the phone has locked onto enough satellite signals calculate its position. You'll know the phone is locked onto a satelite as the lock indicator at the bottom of the screen will turn green.

Other phone applications can also use the GPS receiver if required. For example the camera application can optionally "geotag" photos with your current location using the GPS receiver to work out where you are (click here to see our camera tutorial and find out more about geotagging). If you switch to the standby or menu screens while an application is using the GPS receiver, you'll see a little satellite icon in the top right corner of the screen to indicate that GPS is active.

How does the 5800's GPS work? Like all satellite navigation systems, the 5800 receives signals from many different GPS satellites in the sky, and calculates your position based on those signals, using a combination of triangulation, signal delay calculation and a lot of very heavy maths that you really don't want to know about.

Important Note: Satellite signals cannot penetrate buildings, so GPS satellite signals will be difficult or impossible to receive if you are indoors and away from windows. If you want to speed up the process of GPS showing your location, take the phone outside or place the phone next to a large window with a good view of the sky.

The 5800's GPS aerial is inside the top left side of the phone. If you want to get a good GPS lock make sure this part of the phone is uncovered

G1 gps not working


have you actually enabled the G1's GPS receiver within the phone ?
the GPS is not switched on out of the box aswell as Wifi and Bluetooth.
Try going into the settings and enabling the GPS Satellite receiver and then use the maps application to see if the Satellites can Triangulate your position and find where your at !

hope this helps :D

You need to go outside with a clear view of the sky and get a satellite fix with the unit turned on (usually a couple of minutes), Then the maps will show your current position. By entering your address you are trying to create a route from current position to your destination. By default the current position is set for Kansas (Garmin US office), but once you have locked onto the satellite your current postion will be the last position before the unit was turned off.
