To change the preset home location on your street pilot follow the below instructions (at least it worked for me)
1. Select the "Where to?" icon & choose "My Locations" then "My Favorites" icon
2. Locate "Home" & select it, then touch "edit" on the bottom of the screen & choose the option "delete"
(If there is anything else in there saved delete those things as well)
3. Once the preset "home" has been deleted, go back to "Main Menu" select the "Where To?" icon & select the "go home" icon.
4. The device will now prompt you to enter the new location for "Home"

Are you outside, exposed to the GPS signals?

If so, have you tried resetting the unit?

Remove the face cover (GENTLY pry it loose by using the fingernail groove directly under the GARMIN logo), press the RESET button, then re-attach front cover... this is covered in the owners manual, also available online at /support /downloads

I have a ifinder hunt GPS, it will not locate any satellites, it then prompts me to stop searching or continue to search for satellites. I have been trying this device over the last 10 months, mostly on...

With a normal GPS device, when you first switch it on, it needs some time to locate enough satelites. Most of the time it needs at least 5 satelites. Some time should be like minutes and not hours. After the GPS device fond enough satelites, it knows where it is and can when it is switched on again work faster. When you try to let the GPS search for satelites indoors, or without a free view to the sky, it is possible the receiver never can find satelites at all.
I don't know if any test of the Lowrance iFINDER Hunt GPS was placed on the net, but that is where you can check how long it should take for the GPS to find enough satelites.

My gps works up to the point that it cannot locate satellites. It asks if I have travelled 100 miles or more and whenI hit no, it goes back to searching for satellites with no luck. Is that a fixable...

Try answering yes. If the original location has been lost due to battery replacement etc, These devices go to a home location which may be anywhere to begin looking for the satelites. It could take 30 minutes or more to locate itself. Just turn it on and let it look for a long time.

Can i use existing satelite antena on my audi

The antenna should plug into the Stilleto car kit if your Audi is equipped with Sirius already. Otherwise you will have to use another Sirius antenna.

Only one satellite is enough to find the GPS device location or more satellites are required?

To determine location at least 4 satelites are needed.
If you know one element( latitude,or height) than 3 are sufficient

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.
