If you have tried multiple times in different locations then the GPS has failed.

My garmin nuvi 660 stopped receiving satellite signal. Reset has no effect. Everything else seem to work.


Power your unit on outside, make sure you have a clear view of the sky. If your unit is working properly, then it should pick up the satellites. If so, then you can put the unit back in your vehicle and make sure it is positioned to maintain a satellite lock. If you cannot acquire satellites outside, then the unit is defective.

I have a new Garmin 410 and really struggle to get it do download via the ANT agent.


Hello,

Once the USB ANT Stick is connected it should automatically start downloading.
Make sure the Garmin Communicator Plugin is up to date for Mac OS.

Hello,

Try fully charging the unit and leaving it stationary for about 20-30 minutes if you still dont lock satellites try giving the unit a firmware updates using Garmins WebUpdater software here is a link.

My home base is Ohio. I am now in Texas and my Garmin Nuvi 265W seems unable to acquire a satellite signal for my current location. How can I get a satellite signal that I can use in Texas?


One problem, which I've experienced, are tinted windows (tinted with metal oxide). They block or distort the microwave signal to/from the satellite. Garmin has an optional external antenna which can be used, or you can try relocating the GPS in your car. Try it with all windows down and the unit near an open window. If that works you've confirmed the tinted glass problem.

I takes close over 3 minutes for my garmin 765T to locate a sattelite and I leave in a major east coast city. is something wrong with the system or is this normal


Holding the satellite signal strength indicator icon (upper left hand corner of screen) for a few seconds with your finger brings up a visual display showing signal strength of various satellites, accuracy, speed and elevation.

From a cold start - I too have experienced 2 to 3 minute wait times for satellite aquisition, so I would presume this is a normal. I own three different Garmin units apart from the 765T and satellite aquisition times vary on all three, most aquire satellites in under 4 minutes. Traffic on the other hand seems to take a while to load as this is dependent on availability in your area.

My Garmin quest unit has stopped acquiring satellite signal. All other functions appear normal.


I had a similar problem - and was told that the issue was with the satellites not the unit and that it would be ok in a couple of days. Mine is now working OK again.

Lost satellite reception


I have the same problem, and so far the only solution is patience. If you are in a cutting, or between tall buildings, and the satellites are low down on the horizon, then it seems reasonable that reception will be between poor and zero. But in wide open spaces mine too sometimes loses the signal. Hang in there, and contact is restored.
