IQU 3200 no longer finding any sattelites

It was working fine and I have owned it since new. All of a sudden, even outside on a sunny day, the unit will not find even a hint of a sattelite. I'm about ready to try and open it to see if a wire is broken or something.

For the record I have reset it and resynched it multiple times.

Try using and external antenna. If that works your internal antenna is kaput.

When was the last time you went into the your settings and update your software or configured the unit? On cloudy days you can't do this. On a bright sunny day go outside and try this.

Unless you are driving in a dangerously remote area of some desert, or a large city, GPS units rarely lose signal. Chances are you have a defective unit, I'd contact Garmin support: Here.
Hope this has been of some help.

Waiting for a valid gps signal

Make sure you are outdoors. Some buildings are well shielded due to their construction.

If you are not downloading the GPS Quickfix every week then it will take much longer for the unit to acquire satellites. Perhaps as much as five minutes.

If you are outside set in a destination and if you have not got satellites within a few minutes then drive a a few tens of yards and it should suddenly find satellites. Happens to my unit as well.

Garmin Nuvi 660 Can not locate Sattelites

Please read the solution that resolved this problem for someone else. Most likely, you have already tried this. However, the antenna of your Nuvi 660 is the same as the 3xx Nuvi series. I know this because I have worked on them.

If the above procedure does not work for you, the entire antenna assembly will need to be replaced.
The other option is to purchase an external antenna for your Nuvi and plug it into the external antenna port (gold connector) on the Nuvi antenna assembly.

Best wishes,
- Jim

Have you tried a Master Reset? It may help, but it WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. To do a Master Reset, turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the screen, then press and release the power button. Keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you are sure you want to reset. Follow the prompts.

Not acquire sattelites

place the GPS outside with a clear 360 degree view of sky or as much of the horizon as possible and leave it for a few hours it needs to download the almanac from all satellites before doing this

from the Acquiring Satellite page press menu and make sure that the topline of the menu reads "Use With GPS off" if it reads "Use With GPS on" (this means it will not find any SAT's ie for indoor use) press enter to turn the GPS Receiver on
