"Searching for Satelite" - unable to find

Our Navman is unable to find Satelite connection.

At first it took up to 10 minutes to find, now it doesn't find satelite signals at all.

Thank you, Julie.

Re: "Searching for Satelite" - unable to find

10-15 minutes is normal.
Did you take it outside? GPS doesn't work indoors. Try in an open field, no trees. Should lock in a few minutes. I always do the following: i key in the destination address at home, then put it under 'favourites". When i start driving, i put the unit in my car and look up the recently added favourite. The unit then has enough time to lock on to the satellites.

When i turn my navman icn310,its just says waitin for gps,wot does this mean

It means it's searching for GPS birds. The initial process may take up to 15 minutes for the unit to locate enough birds to locate itself. after it's located the birds and itself, subsequent power on sequences should be shorter in locating the birds.

Navman just searches for GPS

i get the same on two of the same here only thing i can say is their tech support does not work and their customer service is next to none but perhaps they have turned off the satelite signal so that the 320's wont work anymore so that people have to go out and buy another 1 or perhaps the aliens shot down the satelite

Keeps displaying cannot get valid gps signal was working fine last week now does not work

i work as a truck driver on a small fleet of 7 vehicles in the midlands UK

3 of us have Tom Toms, the others have medion, navman or garmin.

ALL the tom tom users have been experiencing GPS problems this week ( june 21 onwards ) whilst the rest of us have seen no change in GPS satelite availability.

In addition, a friend who uses a TOM TOM One XL in another part of the UK has also had same problems.

Its a TOM TOM problem generally it seems, and NOT your particular piece of kit.

My eTREX VISTA won't get a satelite fix any more

The unit needs to have the screen facing up. The unit will not read if it is vertical. Garmin cust serv finally helped me with that one. Once you turn on the unit, it could take up to 20 minutes (usually about 3) to grab satelites.

Have got a brand new S50 Navman and am unable to connect to my mobile phone via bluetooth. The brand of mobile phone is F850 ZTE. I am in Australia and the phone is bluetooth capable, i just can't get it...

I found out that the phone i have will not connect with my navman S50. I tried a couple of other phones and it worked without a hitch. All i wanted to do was confirm that the bluetooth function on my navman was working. Thank you.
