Try the reset
Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.

with the unit off,and unplugged, try pressing and holding your finger on the low right corner of the screen and slide the power switch to the on position until you see the message "confirm if you really want to delete all user data?" hit yes and let it restart. then it will set up the nuvi again, so follow the prompts.

if that fails, hook up the nuvi to the web updater and get the latest update

(actually i would do this either way)

you can get the web updater HERE

Gps singal lost


Often, when your GPS is in a "covered" area ... e.g. inside a building, in a tunnel, under a bridge, amongst / under tall buildings, etc... when there is no open space (directly) between your GPS and the satellites, your GPS will loose its satellite signals. If you're in such locations, try to find some "open space" and wait a bit for the signals to be picked up again.
Another common reason why the GPS doesn't get signals, or doesn't get the signals quickly, is because the "latest" satellite positions (locations) have not been updated in your GPS. If/when you connect your GPS to your computer (e.g. using HOME ) and download the GPS satellite (QuickFix) location information, your GPS will have the most recent locations of the satellites in your vicinity/region. With this information, your GPS can pick up the signals more quickly ... instead of having to search/scan around to find the signals ... which can take a bit more time. While your GPS is searching for the satellite signals, it shows the "signal lost" or "no GPS signal" message.

I installed garmin xt but the signal for gps is 0


Hi

The samsung B7320 takes a real long time to get the 3D fix thats required by the navigatin softwares.

Check the following
1) In manual for see how GPS needs to be configured. I would recommend you keep the settings to Intermediate GPS driver.
2) If the settings are done as per requirement, take your phone in an open space and then see if the signals are available. Be patient as the fix takes a real long time sometimes even few minutes.
3) If the problem of no signals persists you need to test if your GPS chipset is working. Use turbo GPS for this.

Takes 3 minutes to turn on, then is ok finding a signal


Its not uncommon for some GPS to take a while to "warm up"

Check the tom tom site as some tom toms have a quick sat finder update. If you use tom tom home on your computer it usually has an UPDATE option where it will go online and get any fixes etc for your device.

Even then you may still see over a minute or so to boot up.

GPS signal not sufficient on iPhone 3G


Had the same problem with Navigon for the iPhone. I found a simple quick fix:

1. Go to your iPhone Settings
2. Press the General tab
3. Scroll to the bottom and press the Reset tab
4. Press the Reset Network Settings tab

This may take a short time, then after it's done, reboot your device (if it doesn't on its own).
You should now have a good GPS signal!

It will take ages to find a signal the first time it tried. Once locked on it should pick up the sats really quickly the next time you turn on the device.

If you turn it off completely (battery switch to off) then it will take ages again the next time it is turned on.

Hope this helps.
