    Yes I have the same problems

    You're fortunate not to have had any problems like ALL the other users who posted the same identical problem.
    The way my problem has been resolved is through exchange for a new unit. Incidentally, Garmin has discontinued the nuvi 650 and is offering a model upgrade.

No problem reported , i had 2 NUVI 660 in front of me. Did you flip the antenna parallel to earth surface. Wait 45-56 seconds and you should get a signal.

If your are on vertical position with you GPS . Place the antenna at 90 degres so she will be paralell to earth.

You should get a signal very quickly. No other report this problem.

Make sure you had also the last update via the web updater

Best regards

Have Sanyo DP50740 Plasma tv and Dish Network receiver. This morning I turned TV on and receiver on and Black screen appeared on TV with floating no signal box with white letters. I do not have the tv


Wait a day or so. They could be working or configuring the Satellite. If you had no trouble whatsoever in the past weeks, why would it suddenly let you down? Obviously they may be doing something that made the Satellite transmission inoperative for a few days. if the problem persists, then there are the proper people to seek. You can also seek advice from other Satellite dish users. if they have same problem, then it's obviously technicians are working on the problem.

If you have DISH Network equipment, you can try a check switch test on your receiver so the receiver can update its information from the satellite. With the DISH remote press the Menu button which will display Main Menu on the TV screen.

Press 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 1(Point Dish). Highlight the CHECK SWITCH button on the upper right of the screen and press the Select button on remote. On the Installation Summary screen, highlight the TEST button at the bottom of screen and press the Select button on the remote. This will initiate the test. Allow the test to complete. Once completed, exit out of each screen till you get Acquiring Satellite Signal on TV screen. After acquisition completion, allow it to download the program guide. If this doesn't fix the problem, you may need a new receiver. I hope this helps.

Will not acquire satellite signal and continously updates firmare


I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W. I am going to recommend a HARD RESET for you, to try and break the firmware update cycle you said you are locked into. Once you have successfully completed the WebUpdate, satellite acquisition will be vastly improved with the new system software.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites (if your pc will still recognize it or you have a memory chip you can pop into a card reader).
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Hope you do not have a "heat reducing" window in your car. This will prevent a good satellite fix. With these windows there a some places where you'll get a better reception.
