Viewsat Ultra - No channel

2 days ago a "No channel" message appeared. What is wrong? How can I fix it?

I downloaded the new fix posted today 11/9/07 and did the channel scan and only a few channels are available. Plus, the signal in the “Q” doesn’t go over 60’s and I looked at the antena and apperently it has not been moved.

Thanks for your help!

Most likely you got a hot copy of the maps and it worked fine for a few minutes in the new unit. Check the course of the map because they know if they are purchased new or are being copied. Not saying you did anything wrong just saying the SD card can only be used for one unit. Contact the company and they will set you straight.

Appears to recognise connection but when receiving

Back up your Garmin Training center (File , Export, History...Workouts... Courses.

Then try reinstalling software. My wifes PC has done this a few times. I think it is becasue she is not using the "safly remove hardware" icon in the task bar when disconecting.
Reinstalling the sofware has worked for us.

My Garmin Nuvi 265W will not turn on. A couple of weeks ago when I booted it up, it had reset back to like new. Asking me to do set up and such. It's been cool since then. Today I shut it off at 5pm and...

I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Garmin gpsmap 60csx won't acquire satellites

I found the solution that fixed my 60CSx. You need to make sure you have the latest chipset installed on your device. Go to

and download the chipset type G ver 2.9.

After you have loaded it on your 60CSx, you should be good to go. Just turn it on like you normally do and now you'll see your device retrieving locks w/ the satellites.

Let me know if this helps you out.

What is happening is your map updates are being copied onto your memory card without overwriting the old maps hence you are running out of memory.

In the tomtom home browser you should be able to delete your old map before installing the new one. Make sure you have a back up of the map card before you try this though so you can reinstall if something goes wrong.

Also have you replaced the voice prompts on your tomtom? The voice files take up a lot of memory so if you have put new ones one without removing the old ones you will be wasting memory.

There is one window in TThome that lists eveything installed on yuor card so have a good look at this and see what you can get rid of.

make sure the receiver is off using the switch on the back. connect serial cable.. open unloader program on computer, pick the bin you want to upload. click pc to stb.. after the slide bar appears turn of the viewsat... it should start to dl now.. wait.. when the computer says finished, don't turn off the viewsat yet. the viewsat will auto start.. if it doesn't wait till the software is finished ,, the screen will come back to a channel.. If no picture go and set up the antenna.
