    My 15 month old unit shuts off right after it shows the initial Garmin Nuvi screen. This occurs while being charged in auto or not. I've charged at home but get the same result.

    My 13 month old unit shuts off right after it shows the initial Garmin Nuvi screen. This occurs while being charged in my car or while being charged in the house. It DID connect yesterday for about 5 minutes then shut off again. Also, sometimes I get a prompt saying the maps from last year are out of date.

NUVI 660 ,

Well sir, did you flip up your antenna parallel to earth surface as mentionned into the manual.

Without the antenna you will not be able to get any signal.

The navigation wont work on my binatone x350 for some reason,everything else works except for this,any ideas?


The software needs reloading, if it is under 12 months old and you have the receipt, contact Binatone on 0845 345 9677 and they will organise for this to be done under the warranty. If the Sat Nav is over 12 months old or you do not have the receipt they can still resolve this for you if you pay £32.99 which will include brand new software and the latest maps available- it's worth it rather than purchasing a new Sat Nav!

Wont calculat route


sat nav needs a valid gps signal to start calculating route, even if it found entered address. Address is searched on built-in map, not live gps position. That means, sat nav may have problem with gps signal. Try to reset device to its factory settings first. hope this helps

Updates for garmin sat nav


To increase the accuracy of your Garmin Nuvi 205W, I recommend you use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device. Software improvements for acquiring satellite lock and location accuracy have been made.

I hope that helps.

I'm not sure if you are aware but there have been recent warnings that sat navs may start to fail and will stop working all together by 2010.

Are all sat-navs going to fail in 2010? Jump to Comments
sat_nav_fail.jpg?w=300&h=200 Sat-nav systems could become defunct next year, according to a report from the U.S. Government.
It reckons a lack of investment and development into the U.S. Air Force’s GPS (Global Positioning System) will cause the failure.
But the U.S. Air Force said sat-navs will carry on working as normal. So who’s right?

I’ve been meaning to buy a sat-nav for some time due to my girlfriend’s “interesting” map-reading skills.
There’s no doubt reading a map can be more rewarding, but the convenience of using a sat-nav is a welcome one.
But recent claims from the U.S. Government’s Accountability Office (GAO) concerned me slightly. It warned the 20-year-old Navstar GPS system is in urgent need of an upgrade.
The GAO criticised the U.S. Air Force Space Command for offering the service for free, and said the lack of investment meant both military and civilian systems could be affected.
Apparently the GPS system overran its budget by £562 million and the next satellite is due to go into orbit in August 2009 – almost two years behind schedule.
“It is uncertain whether the Air Force will be able to acquire new satellites in time to maintain current GPS service without interruption,” the GAO said.
But the U.S. Air Force Space Command left a comment on Twitter declaring there is nothing to worry about.
“Be assured, the issue is not whether GPS will stop working. There’s only a small risk we will not continue to exceed our performance standard.
“Since 1995, GPS has never failed to exceed performance standards,” the U.S. Air Force Space Command said.
Drivers across the world will be affected if sat-navs fail to operate in 2010.
If the satellites do go down, a new EU sat-nav system called ‘Galileo’ could be in big demand when it goes worldwide in 2013.
Until then, I’m going to put my faith in the U.S. Air Force and take the plunge with a sat-nav.

This does worry me, because I have had simliar problems with my work's sat nav, even on clear sunny days.
