Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
When i turn on my Nuvi 200W it takes like 5-10 minutes to locate a satellite. and just keeps saying "acquiring satellites" or "locating satellites".....with popups every so often that say "can't connect -keeping trying?" and i click yes, and then it still takes forever. sometimes works, sometimes doesn't.
Also while in travel, if i stop at a stop light or something, it drops its connection and then says "recalculating"....as if i've gone off course, but haven't. :(
is there any way to fix this? or is it time for a new gps machine?
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, 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)
