How can i get my garmin nuvi 1300 to pick up satellites?


GPS satellite reception is best achieved when the unit is outdoors and has a good clear view of an unobstructed sky. The majority of the GPS satellites orbits are around the equator so if you are in the northern hemisphere, the best reception would be achieved with a clear southern sky.

GPS won't pick up satellite reception.

Let's assume the unit is in good conditions. When you travel for more than 500 Kms the unit need more time to acquire the satellites, so the solution is to keep the unit on in a uncovered area for about 15 minutes.

My garmin nuvi has lost satellite service and cannot find any satellite service at all. how can i resolve this?


this could be that you are in a poor reception area, have you tried driving around to see if it picks up a signal elsewhere ?
The internal antanea may be faulty, does it have a socket to add an external ?
Has the unit got a reset switch ?

Cannot locate saltellite or Acquiring satellite

The error means it can't pick up valid GPS signals. In other words, bad reception.

Has the unit ever worked? Does the unit have an internal or external antenna? Are the batteries fully charged?

Try the unit outside with clear view of sky instead of in the car. This will give it the best chance of picking up a GPS signal.

If it still doesn't then suggest something broken inside.

Unable to get satellite reception

Make sure you are not moving and that you are on an open field with minimal aerial hindrances. It takes time for the GPS unit to acquire satellite signal and makes it difficult to acquire when you are moving so make sure you stop at an open are till it syncs with at least 3 satellites.

hope this helps!

Go to a clear sky with a clear reception, or try reseting your GPS.

if you just happen to enter new information while driving this would sometimes freeze your GPS as a protection whilst driving

Won't pick up satellites

It fixed my garmin Nuvi 660:
With the unit off press firmly on the upper left hand corner of the screen with the tip of your finger.

2. Press the power button. When you see the screen light up let go of the power button but continue to press on the upper left hand corner of the screen until you receive the message "Do You Really Want to Start Up In Maintenance Mode?"

3. Say Yes and then select the third Option "Clear All User Data" and then say Yes.
4. The unit will then start up and ask you to set some preferences.

5. Once the unit is on the Main Menu please sit it in a safe place outside with a clear view of the sky for about 10 minutes and let it lock on to the satellites.
