SOURCE: won't acquire satellite

There is currently an Update (Vers 5.10) available at Garmin.com Check only the Nuvi 350 click on it and the Nuvi 350 will appear. In the Upper Right Corner you will see a Category of Updates. Click on it and you will be advised that you need to Download UpDater. Do so, uncompress it, then attach your Nuvi to your computer and run Update. It's simple, just follow the instructions on the screen. However, it sometimes take a couple of tries before the Nuvi actually accepts and shows that it has been updated to Vers 5.10 I guess I was lucky. Mine accepted the new update with the 2nd install but it sometimes takes 4 or more. If you are uncomfortable with the foregoing or it doesn't work for you contact Technical support at Garmin. They are really helpful and you can e-mail them at techsupp@garmin.com

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi takes a long time to Acquire satellite

No. 98% of the time it took 45-56 seonds for your NUVI 660. Thats the compagny set up time acquisition and it did very well.

Be sur you had your flip antenna parallel to earth surface.
660 has THE BEST SIRF Chipset for acquiring satellite.

I had 2 NUVI 660 since 2 years. It work much better than those new 7xx series who it really took 2-3 minutes to acquire satellite.

Be sure you update your version to the last one.

SOURCE: battery replacement now ca't find satellite Garmin c320

More than likely when you reinstalled the gps receiver (the board with the wires connected to it) at the top of the receiver you did not position it properly. If it is not positioned properly it will not receive a satellite signal

I had a similar problem - and was told that the issue was with the satellites not the unit and that it would be ok in a couple of days. Mine is now working OK again.

SOURCE: Garmin nuvi 1350 can't find signal

Fist you should travel around with it, and see if in a different area you get satellites.

It could be where you are at, so this does not mean that in another town or state it won't work.

If you try this and still have problems it could be the unit and you should contact the MFG and send it in for repair.

This is the contact support page I posted below if you need it, its a live link so if you click on it the page will open.

Greetings . . . I turned my Garmin 2720 on in my


Take the GPS out of your van to an area with a clear view of the sky. Power the unit on. If the unit is working correctly, then it will acquire the satellites. You can then put the unit back in your van. You may have to reposition the unit to keep the satellite lock.

If the unit does not acquire satellites outside, then the unit is defective.

Updated unit and still acquiring satelites is showing, what can i do?


If your unit is still acquiring satellite, then it means the signal strength is weak, try to get it outside where it can be facing the sky directly so it will be able to acquire satellite. Once you just update your gps receiver, it seems like it is brand new and when it wants to first acquire satellite, it might take longer to do so. But if it has access to the sky directly, it should take about 3 to 5 minutes to acquire.
If your unit is indoor, it may not acquire satellite, even if it is close to the window, it will not, but if it is outside, then it will acquire faster.
Check if you have any protective coating on your windshield or electronic devices which interfere with the unit from receiving signal from the satellite. Try to see if your gps receiver can use an antenna, then connect one to it and your gps will acquire satellite.
Try to reset your gps first before trying any other solution for the unit.

GPS wont aquire a satellite


    Hello there and happy new year
    If Your Unit Cannot Acquire Satellite Signals
  1. For your Garmin GPS unit to acquire the satellite signals it needs to function properly, the unit must be taken outside, away from mountains, tall buildings and heavy foliage where it can get a clear view of the sky. Keep the unit stationary for several minutes while the GPS unit acquires the necessary satellite signals.It may take several minutes for the unit to locate a good solid signal
  2. OK
  3. Hope this is very helpful please keep me posted on this ok?
    Best regards Michael
