I live in Kansas my settings says Chicago there are no time zone setting for Kansas


Shouldn't matter, you can use Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, etc to set the Central Time Zone. Most modern devices actually use GMT and convert based on a location provided.

I turn it my Garmin and it will not come up with my location, it is coming up Kanas and Im in Cleveland


Are you outside with the unit? It was made in Kansas and has Olathe, Kansas as it's default starting point. However, when you take the unit outside and it gets a satellite signal, it should find where it is currently. If not, the GPS might be turned off (for indoor use). Turning the unit off for a few seconds and then on again outside should put it in the proper mode to receive satellite signals. Let me know if this helps.

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.

No signal - stuck in Kansas


Try this and see if it fixes it for you...first disable bluetooth on your unit.

1. Power off the unit.

2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).

3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to recover from problem.

Why does my nuvi 360 give instructions from Olathe, Kansas when I am in Pennsylvania? Cannot get satelite bars either?


Check to see if the antenna is enabled, or if demo mode is off, or simulation mode is off. Make sure you have a clear view of the sky. Leave it stationary for at least 12 minutes to download the latest almanac and ephemeris from at least one satellite.

New Garmin 330 stuck on kansas


Take the unit outside and turn it on. Then select View Maps, at the top of the screen it will say either "Locating satellites" or "Acquiring Satellites". Once the garmin has locked onto the overhead satellites, then it will say "Ready to Navigate".

Locating Satellites take longer than Acquiring Satellites.

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.

I was able to fix this problem along with being in demo mode by plugging the unit into my computer and deleting the "demo" file on the Garmin.

Can't change location-appears as if still in Kansas despite downloads


You need to go outside and turn on the Garmin until it has acquired a satellite lock (15-20 minutes). Kansas is the default location (Garmin Headquarters). Once you have acquire satellites, the Garmin will remember the last position as the starting position when the power is turned off. You know you have acquire a satellite lock once "Ready to Navigate" appears on the top of the screen.
