Question about Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS Receiver
I've had this Garmin for almost three months, and it has worked fine. Today it suddenly could never locate satellites. I turned it off and on, but it still could not find the satellites. Oddly enough, when I put it on this morning, it asked if I was inside. It has never asked that before.
I tried to install Garmin GPS Chipset Type G (part of Garmin Webupdater) but it gave me an error:
"This Garmin device is unable to program the requested memory region. This could be due to an incompatibility between this application and the Garmin device"...

Good Day,My Gamin 260 loss satellite reception ' I did all the normal fixes described in the solutions above. It would work for a few minutes and then lose signal. Solution. I took it completely apart, there is a small cube 1"X1" that had filmed over on the back side across from the battery. I took some fine steel wool and cleaned off the film , made it shinny again. This solved the problem and I immediately got satellite reception inside my workshop.
