How can i get my garmin nuvi 1300 to pick up satellites?


Hello,

GPS satellite reception is best achieved when the unit is outdoors and has a good clear view of an unobstructed sky. The majority of the GPS satellites orbits are around the equator so if you are in the northern hemisphere, the best reception would be achieved with a clear southern sky.

My new Garmin Nuvi 1450 lost satellite signal more than 30 times between Topeka Ks and KCI. Is this normal?


I have the same exact problem. Satellite detection outside of vehicle before starting out was full strength, as soon as you get into vehicle strength drops off to practically nothing. Now start driving and it continually loses satellite reception even on the open road with no hills and a clear day. It was mounted as far into the front windshield as I could get it and still crappy reception. Very disappointing as a cheaper Tom Tom my sister has works flawlessly. Also my daughters HTC desire Z cell phone GPS works flawlessly even from the back seats in the van. Maybe 1450LMT is just junk, and I should look for a refund.

My garmin nuvi 360 says "updatin ps software 0%" on start up and then won't be able to acquire satellites


This indicates that there is a problem with the flip-up antenna/GPS receiver assembly and there is no communication between the main board and the GPS receiver IC. When this happens, you won't be able to pick up satellite reception.

The main board is trying to upload a fresh copy of the GPS firmware stored on your Nuvi but it fails because of the problem in the GPS receiver assembly.

Frequently loses satellites.


I can help you fix the satellite problem with your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

Poor satellite reception, loosing satellites, and taking a long time to acquire satellites are issues that have been addressed by Nuvi 265WT firmware updates.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running better than new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
