Take the unit outside and turn it on. Then select View Maps, at the top of the screen it will say either "Locating satellites" or "Acquiring Satellites". Once the garmin has locked onto the overhead satellites, then it will say "Ready to Navigate".

Locating Satellites take longer than Acquiring Satellites.

Remove silver face plate by prying with your fingernail. Remove 4 screws, open and unplug the connector that the battery and speaker wires connect to. Wait 30 seconds and replug. Problem solved. Put back together and turn on. If this dont work, you have bigger problems.

You can clear all the user data by holding your finger on the bottom right corner of the screen when turning on the satnav. Once the data is deleted you can set your home location by pressing WHERE TO and then GO HOME. As you won't have a home destination set it will give you 3 options
  1. Enter your address
  2. Use current address
  3. Choose from a list of recently found locations.
If you're at home, choosing option 2 is probably the easiest. You'll need to be outside so the satnav can access satellites. If you're not at home you can use option 1 or 3.

You can find the user manual for this satnav at
