Make sure batteries are fully charged.This is the prime reason for failure to lock
The secondary is that the baud and port are not correctly set. check your manual for this info.

GPS can't get a lock on satellites?


If your GPS can't get a lock on the current position or find GPS satellites....

a) For TomTom only: Be sure you have the latest "QuickFix" update installed in your GPS. It helps to get a lock on GPS satellites much faster (within 15 seconds, instead of several minutes).

b) Be sure you're outside of any building. Most GPS don't work at all inside (with exception of TomTom and only if you have the latest QuickFix installed and you are within 10 ft. of a window).

c) Tall buildings can make difficult for a GPS to lock on the satellites. If you're in the middle of tall buildings (on the street), move to more open space (like a park or an intersection with shorter buildings).

d) Try resetting your GPS. Most GPS have a "RESET" button (TomTom GPS's have it on the bottom). Resetting your GPS may help it get a lock on its current position.

The location displayed is not where I am. It is stuck and will not move. Only the small bar is red for service. What can I do to fix this.


hi, first plug it in to a known good car charger or home charger...charge it up for a few hours (a low battery will hamper satellite reception)

take your gps outside in clear view of the open sky and turn it on, then give it up to 30 minutes to lock on to the satellites...if it still wont lock let me know by replying and ill help you further.

if you are moving before the satellites lock on, it is much harder and takes longer to lock on...

Can't get a GPS signal for last 24 hrs


I had a similar problem and did solve it with the soft reset (pressing reset button). I have a One XL and there is a small reset button that you push with a paper clip. On the XL 330 you press and hold the on/off button for 15 seconds and the unit should reset.

My symptoms: Would not find a GPS signal. When I looked at the GPS Satellite status (press on the GPS signal strength bars, again on the GPS/battery status) you can see it locking on up to 8 satellites but would still not show a gps signal lock. Normally it only takes 4 satellites to get a gps lock. My other sympton was that when I attached the GPS unit to the computer and operated it with TomTom Home, it worked fine and locked on to the gps signal quickly (even inside my home). But it would never (at least for 30 minute trips) lock on to a gps signal. After doing a reset it began working normally and locked on to a gps signal after finding 4 or more satellite signals.

Magellan gps 2000 won't lock in on satellites even after 3 hrs of trying- searching is on the screen telling me its searching


Possible solution, at least my GPS2000 finally locked up. Initialize; enter current location and time; wait until there are more than four (I had seven) satellites available; find a location nearby that has a clear view nearly to the horizon in all directions; place the GPS2000 on a stationary base with the antenna as horizontal as practical; wait; mine finally locked up after perhaps 30 to 40 minutes. Patience and an abundance of satellites, I think, are the answer. Good luck.
