I believe there is an update on Garmins site. If you turn your Gps on look at the version or go to setup and see if you can find the current version and see if there is another part of it that says something about satellite version which on yours probably says 0.00 which means it has lost the program. Go on Garmins site and i believe you can download it again and it will hook up to satellites. If you have problems call Garmin they are great to work with unlike Magellin. You do have to have the cord though to hook up to your computer to download the version. I have done this with several Garmin 60c, cs, scx's and it has worked on every one of them.

Frozen screen on ''aquiring satelite''


Try resetting the I5. Hold the left button, the wheel button and the power button down at the same time. Keep holding until the screen say that " Do you really want to erase all user data?" Select Yes and then restart the I5.

My garmin i5 doesn't know where it is +


I would suggest that you return it to Garmin since it's still under warranty. My Garmin i5 will NOT operate on just batteries. This unit is also under warranty. Also, the suction cup mount fails to hold onto the windshield. I've been concerned about how many people seem to have problems with these units.
