    Oops, I posted my similar question in the wrong area - it wasn't meant to be a solution - just another question about how to improve/fix the acquisition of satellite signals by my Garmin nuvi 250W.

    Thanks for your help in advance,

I have the same problem.
I called Garmin & did a complete 'power-on reset' and am still having difficulty acquiring satellites.
I understand that the satellites move, so if your unit has been off for several days, this can take longer - BUT when it has been off only overnight, it shouldn't (hopefully) take up to 10 minutes to acquire satellites.

I hope someone can provide some additional help here.
Thanks in advance.

Try pushing the reset button on the back of the unit and then it should restart and acquire the satellites

System software missing garmin 250w


If the unit indicates "software/firmware missing", then you can only try to re-install firmware by running WebUpdater again. If it doesn't work, then the unit has to be sent to service to have it re-flashed.
