In Australia you have to hold it upside down!

Seriously though the battery has to be fully charged to obtain a signal also in the middle of the city it may not be able to see clearly the birds . Other electronic factors can screen out connection.

Is it reporting a valid antenna connection in the pic that shows the satellite connections beoing made?

thanks for using FIXYA

Will not find city or locations


Hello.

Solution to the problem.

With the right piece of hardware and software, it ispossible to triangulate your location anywhere on earth using satellitenavigation. These gamin devices cansuccessfully guide you from one place to another, or they can simply use theconnection with the satellite to tell you your exact current location. Thelatter function requires you to know how to locate the GPS device using theoptions onscreen.
1 Purchase a GlobalPositioning System (satellite navigation) product. There are manymanufacturers, including TomTom, NavMan and Garmin.2 Turn on the GPS and leave itfor a minute or so as it establishes a connection between the device and thesatellite.
3 Navigate to the"Current Location" option in the "Tools" or"Settings" menu (the exact pathway to this option depends on whichGPS device you have). The satellite signal will now successfully locate yourGPS device.4 Type a ZIP code or placename once you have located your GPS device. The gamin can now successfully guide you to your finaldestinationThanks.

Stuck at last location I went to


when your device is stuck from the previous location, it simply means that you have lose your signal to your device...try to hard reset : turn off for 1 minute and then turn on...make sure when you turned on that you are in an open space and no tall buildings or mountains surrounding the area. if inside the car place it on the holder. or else there is a problem already on the signal antenna, check your warranty for replacement.

Problem with navman 4150 fish finder


I installed my Navman 4150 depth finder along with the Navman GPS unit when I purchased my Bayliner Trophy 20Ft. Offshore model. Everything was ok for one year and it has been downhill since then. Losing signal, unbelievable high depth ranges, blank periods, etc.. I now can't even get a reading tieded up at the dock. I am now giving up and shoping for a quality unit.. Cape Disappointment.........

Will not locate gps


1. Do you have a clear view of the sky? Try a mall parking lot, or a sports field.

2. If it's new from the box, or has a factory reset done, or was powered up last in a different country, make sure the antenna is turned on, and that it's not in demonstration or simulation mode. Wait 12 minutes at least - so it can download the latest almanac from the first satellite it finds.

3. If you have a screen for signal strength, watch that, and reposition until you see at least 4 satellites with a signal level greater than 35 or 40 at the same time. Expect a fix roughly a minute later.

NAVMAN ICN310 CANNOT GET SIGNAL IN MY HOME OUTSIDE HOME TAKES 30 MINUTES OR MORE TO GET SIGNAL


It's not unusual to lose signal indoors , in fact most portable /car devices receive very little, if any, signal indoors.

I have a Navman ICN510 running TomTom 6.0 software , instead of the standard Navcar CE program. I believe it connects much faster.

Below is a support forum for modding Navman GPS units.
It will teach you how to change the software on your navman & also help with any other problems. It was very helpfull to me !!

Navman icn510 gps reciever problem


How long are you waiting and are you moving while it is trying to acquire signal? These receivers are using older circuitry that may take up to 20 minutes to first acquire a signal from a cold start. If you are moving it may take longer!!! The good news is that after you have initially acquired a location, if you turn the unit off it will only take a minute or so to reacquire after it has "warmed" up.
