Try doing a battery pull (physically remove the battery form the GPS).

Put the battery back in. Now, hold PAGE button and ENTER button while pressing the power button. Do not let go of Page and Enter until the reset finishes. This is a factory reset, which may clear up whatever issue you have with receiving the signal.

Hope this helps,
Bill

Hi,
Press and hold the Reset button on the bottom of the nuvi for several seconds. It could be located on the left or right of the bottom and is recessed. The flat end of a paper clip my be used. If there is no reset button (not all of the same series have a reset button) slide the power button to the left and hold it for 8 seconds. Hope this help to power down
To acquire the satellite signal try these steps
1. Go to Tools -> GPS Data
2. Click on "Navigation".
3. Click "Option"
4. Choose "Satellite status".
5. If satellite signal is available you will see some bars.
6. Wait patiently...
7. Still waiting...
8. and waiting...
9. The bar turn black color means you are connected to satellite.


Thanks
Smith.

No signal


you have to be outside or in a non steel covered building to get a good signal, i have found on my tomtom that sometimes it would scan for sats for 2 mins and nothing, then i would shut it off and restart and then aquire the sats, there is a time in spring and fall when the sun interfers with the sat signal and you wont get anything for 30 mins

My dish 811 receiver won't download guide info. Do I need to reset and how?


Pull the smart card out of the unit and turn the unit off. then turn it back on and replace the card. this should reset the unit. It will take a minut or so for the unit to read the card and aquire a sat signal. If this does not work, simply call Dish network and they can walk you through any other options.

No signal


make sure it has a good view of the sky and let it aquire the satellites for a while. It may take sometime for it to figure out it's location once it starts seeing the sats. if you have it in a car, try another location. on the dash up near the window is a good spot for it to receive signals.

GPS 40 will not finish aquiring signal


make sure the gps have a full view of the sky. leave it in aquiring mode and let it sit there. My Emap took up to 35 mins once to reaquire the sats and get the updated info needed for position info.
if the unit has been off for a long time or moved a long distance from where it was last turned on, it can take a while for it to come back up.

My tom tom ONe cannot get a valid Satelite Signal just stays wait


If you are indoors then move outdoors to get a signal.

If you are outdoors then move your location by a few yards and sometimes it will suddenly aquire the satellites.

Happens occasionally with my unit. I normally set a route up then start driving and it suddenly starts to work OK.

This seems to be a common problem and my unit has the same issue. Hopefully someone from Garmen monitors this forum and will offer a suggestion or explaination. Perhaps leaving the units in a hot car in the summer fries something that affects sensitivity of the unit.

No Satelite Signal Indication


The "front end" of your Receiver might be defective. Since your other unit is working then what might be happening is the signal to your unit might be dropping, to check this I would use a Satellite power meter, however if you do not have one you can use your other unit and connect it to the cable that your supposed defective unit is connected to. If the unit works then the problem is the supposed defective unit, if the unit does not work then this denotes a possible cable problem. Tell me if this works for you?
