Question about Garmin GPSMAP 295 GPS Receiver
My Garmin 296 has been excellent for three years but just on my last two flights it takes about 100 miles of flight to acquire the satalites....
I do get one strong satalite signal but thats it....
It is hot out here in Arizona and wonder if heat could cause a problem..?
If you don't use it very often it can take time to find its location. Have you tried using the 'set initial location' option? Once it knows roughly where it is and what time it is it can then work out which satellites it should be looking for instead of searching for any/all of them. The manual does say that it will take time if it has no initial clue as to where on the planet it is, and if you're on the move while it's trying to work that out then it may take even longer. Obviously, if it has a poor view of the sky, or if most of the satellites are behind you and you have a tin roofed aircraft then that will probably not help either.
