Hello.
Some of the problems that cause this are as follows
Battery power is too low recharge or replace the battery
The BAUD rate and PORT are not set correctly.
consult the manual for the right parameters, or use the autoconnect option in the settings GPS where it shows the satellites

The SIIRF chip is damaged ( you hope not!) as this is an expensive repair

My Garmin Nuvi 3790T will not acquire a satellite signal


Hello,

Does the GPS work outside of the vehicle?
Where is the GPS mounted?
If the GPS is under the dash, mounting it up on top of the dash will help.
If the Vauxhall has a windshield with a reflective metallic coating or treatment in the glass, this may result in poor GPS satellite reception.

The touch screenon my Garmin Nuvi 600/650 won't work. What can i do?


This is a common problem with units having the serial numbers beginning with "14V", "12P" and "143". It's caused by a defective SHARP touchscreen and needs to be replaced. Please see this link for more info:

Frequently loses satellites.


I can help you fix the satellite problem with your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

Poor satellite reception, loosing satellites, and taking a long time to acquire satellites are issues that have been addressed by Nuvi 265WT firmware updates.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running better than new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Sounds like you did an incomplete firmware update. Go here:

Garmin Nuvi takes a long time to Acquire satellite


No. 98% of the time it took 45-56 seonds for your NUVI 660. Thats the compagny set up time acquisition and it did very well.

Be sur you had your flip antenna parallel to earth surface.
660 has THE BEST SIRF Chipset for acquiring satellite.

I had 2 NUVI 660 since 2 years. It work much better than those new 7xx series who it really took 2-3 minutes to acquire satellite.

Be sure you update your version to the last one.
