    My GPS cannot locate satellites. it works seldomly intermittently. I can still map out directions but it is no longer "Dynamic" it is like reading mapquest. I believe it is a software problem and am going to try to update the software and/or locate a patch perhaps? I have looked in the settings to search for satellites manually to no avail.

How to force pioneer u310bt gps to search for satellites


The GPS should automatically search for satellites unless it is in Demo or Simulation mode.

Be sure to turn of the Demo mode.
Use the Navigation screen and touch the Demo button to turn on or off the mode.

Won't locate satellites each time you turn it on.

The GPS does not have a line of sight to the satellites. Relative satellite position may vary somewhat through the year as the Earth wobbles on it axis. Reposition the GPS in your vehicle.

Searching for satellite but never finds - what is wrong?

I had one like that last year, I found if I lied to it when it asked what state I was in, then it would find the satellites and work fine ... until the next time you turned it on. That one was fixed by installing new v7.2 firmware using Garmin WebUpdater through the USB port.

I've got one right now that won't find the satellites and the firmware trick didn't work. That's all I've got so far. Tom.

Garmin's KNA-G510 won't find satellites unless I tell it I'm in another state and it expands satellite search

I have the g510 with a kenwood head unit. On the satellite screen, on the left it only shows one satellite and on the right it is showing that there are upwards of six or so satellites that it is receiving reception from. I thought it might be the antenna, so I bought a new one. Still having the same problem. It cannot find my location. I've updated the software, I don't know what to do!!

Lost Satellite reception

If its raining, that will cause you to lose satellite reception.

If that is not the problem, then do this: turn off TV & satellite. Wait 5 minutes. Power back on. Most of time this will fix it by itself.

If neither of those do it, unattach your satellite cable from back of satellite box. Power everything off. Wait 5 minutes. Now reattach your satellite cable. Power everything on. It should search for you sat and find it. Let me know if this works.

If none of those work, then I would call the sat company for help.
