There is a failure on the GPS receiver board in the flip-up antenna assembly. This happens when the main board can not communicate with the GPS receiver board. The main board can not read the firmware version, so it tries to re-upload it to the GPS receiver board. This is the software loading bar that you are seeing at the bottom of the screen.

You will mosy likely find that the GPS firmware revision is 0.0. You can find this by pressing the wrench, then the Gear and then "ABOUT". This value should be 2.8, 2.9 or 3.0....not 0.0.

The board needs to be either repaired or replaced. Please see this link for futher info:

Greetings . . . I turned my Garmin 2720 on in my


Take the GPS out of your van to an area with a clear view of the sky. Power the unit on. If the unit is working correctly, then it will acquire the satellites. You can then put the unit back in your van. You may have to reposition the unit to keep the satellite lock.

If the unit does not acquire satellites outside, then the unit is defective.

Garmin c330 says trouble tracking satelites, not acquiring signal. what to do?


If your StreetPilot c300 or c500 series device is no longer acquiring satellites please read the article linked below to ensure that this is not being caused by something in your environment:

Why won't my unit acquire satellites?

If after reading the above article your unit is still having problems, please ensure that your unit's software is up to date. You can do this by using our WebUpdater® program.

If you have tried all of the above suggestions and your unit is still not acquiring satellites, you can perform a master reset by doing the following:

Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.
  1. Start with the unit powered OFF and unplugged from power.
  2. Touch and hold the bottom right corner of the touchscreen.
  3. Power the unit ON and continue pressing the screen until a new message displays, "Do You Really Want To Erase All User Data?".
  4. Touch Yes and go through the set up again.
Take the unit outside and let it set with a clear view of the sky for 3-5 minutes to acquire satellites. If the unit still does not acquire satellites after this, please contact Garmin Product Support.

After 2 - 10 Minutes Satellite connection is lost


Try this and see if it fixes your problem....first disable bluetooth then follow these steps.

1. Power off the unit.

2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).

3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to recover from the above problem.

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

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/store/downloadsUpdates.jsp?product=010-00422-00&cID=145&pID=310

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.

No signal


There are three forms of resets on the unit.

The first is the reset under the front face plate. The second is where you hold the power button for a long time (30 seconds).

The last and potentially warranty voiding solution is to pull off the front face plate. Remove the four tiny philips head screws. The front face plate can now be lifted off. There you will see a battery and a little connector with 2 or 3 wires attached to it. Disconnect it. Wait a while... 30 seconds.... 30 minutes... overnight.... and plug it back in.

I've read some reports about the web updater software flaking out, so I recommend flashing through the SD card slot if possible.

Trouble Acquiring Satellites


This can be easily fixed....
I had the same problem, I returned first piece and exchanged for the second. Had the same problem with second and took back to Circuit city. The GPS guys took out 3rd one for me and had same problem. Then the manager came who has been using these for couple of years and tried to set the home location 3 times and it worked 3rd time. He did the same for the second returned piece and it also worked. He says since these pieces are programmed for Kansas we need to give 3-4 tried before the piece first 'locates' satellite and then acquires satellite. After the the piece just turned out to be awesome.
