    My device keeps saying i'm in kansas and is acquiring satellites. It won't go to my actual location. please help!

    Bought a c340 for elderly parents.  Chose the model due to proclaimed ease of use.  We're still stuck in Kansas, but will try your recommendations.  Once the unit is fully charged and finds a satellite connection, is it good to go, or will it need similar maintenance on an ongoing basis?

    We have set the home location for TN but it thinks we are in Kansas. Satellite just sits there, does nothing.

I tried the reset address over and over to no avail. Finally after it was completely charged, I set it by a window and left in turned on with the finding satellite or whatever it said on it, and went to bed. By the next morning it knew where I was. Give it a try and good luck.

I had been having the same problem with my Garmin c340 saying I was in Kansas. I went outside and tried it and still nothing. Last night I drove around the block and it still said I was in Kansas. Well today I plugged it into the cigarette lighter and went for a drive. It took about 2 miles before it finally found a satellite. I kept entering my home address while I was driving. Finally, it works and there is no place like home!! Thanks Christine.

I got stuck in Kansas also. But, now I'm not in Kansas anymore! Are you trying to set your Garmin up indoors? That was my first problem. Go outdoors and try it. I did that and Toto and I were still in Kansas. SO, I pluged it inot my cigarette lighter and drove down my driveway. It took a few minutes for Garmin to locate a satalite, but once it did I was all set. No problems since, hope it works for you. I really enjoy using my Garmin. I'm one who ofter ends up on the road less traveled so, Garmin has come to my rescue a few times already. Have fun and say hello to the Wizard of Oz for me!

Thanks, I'll give that a try!

Maybe I'll just move to Kansas, it might be easier!

I used the Garmin Web Updater download to update software on my Garmin StreetPilot C340 GPS and it now indicates that I am in Olathe KS...I am in ND. How do I fix that?

Have you been outside with the unit since the update? Usually when you take the unit outside and turn it on, it reads the satellites and gets it's location from those.

Unit thinks it is in kansas, cannot use in al.

Have to set "Home" before the unit starts behaving properly. Do that by using the "Where To Button" -> "My Locations" -> Set Home

New Garmin 330 stuck on kansas

Take the unit outside and turn it on. Then select View Maps, at the top of the screen it will say either "Locating satellites" or "Acquiring Satellites". Once the garmin has locked onto the overhead satellites, then it will say "Ready to Navigate".

Locating Satellites take longer than Acquiring Satellites.

No signal

You will have to leave the unit out in the open so it can 'see' the satellites. It might need from 20-30 minutes to acclimatize itself to the new location. It is set at Kansas because that's where the manufacturer is, so that is the last recorded satellite signal.

first turn it on and let the unit acquire satellites to find your home state. Then you can set up your address as your "home location". When I first set it up, I was able to pick up the satellites in my bedroom (scary....)...everything worked just fine.

New Garmin Streetpilot 340

I'm having similar problems. When I fiddle with the cord it gets power from the car battery, but only for a little while. I believe there may be a fault/break in the power cord, because it charges just fine on the USB link. I'm thinking of ordering another cord/mount.
