Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver
Garmin nuvi200 was working fine and all of a sudden started getting following pop ups repeatedly and since then the GPS unit is not able to catch the satellite signal.
"Updating GPS Firmware 1%" This is followed by another pop up stating "GPS Firmware Update Complete". It can't "acquire satellites" either
I am still not able understand, how it started firmware update as I have never connected it to PC before. Is this set sophisticated enough to do firmware update from the satellite? :)
I tried reset on Garmin. After that, also tried with installing new latest firmware through Garmin Webupdater, But no results.
As soon as I start Garmin unit I get above popups. Please Help me.
My garmin nuvi200 keeps on searches for satellite,but it couldnt able to pick up signal. A question mark over a map is always im seeing througout

Hi, I had the same problem on a Nüvi 200. Managed to fix it by performing these steps:
1. Performed an update using Garmin's WebUpdater. Updated to version 4.40 and also updated the "Chipset M" which you can select as an additional update after the firmware has finished updating.
2. Did a master reset using the button on the back of the unit with the unit turned on.
Hope this helps you,
Best regards from Iceland

First you have to take apart the unit , then you have to unhook the battery wait 2 to 3 minutes and plug the battery back in and turn on every thing has been COMPLETELY Wiped out. and it will start fresh as the day you bought it Mine did the same thing and these steps work.

I updated the firmware to FW5.0 from the Garmin webupdater and my nuvi 200 works great now.

Hi, I have new Garmin Colorado 300. I use it for one day and same problem started. I am very angry. Exact same message "Updating GPS Firmware 1%" flash each 60-90 secconds withou any GPS signal. Damned device only one day works.

I have seen the firmware update message randonly while driving 5 times since December. I saw it happen again today. The firmware is never newer than what is installed already and I only updated using webupdater once. Must be a software issue checking some location in code and thinking the firmware needs updating.

So what happens when you connect it to the PC?
Make sure no sd cards are installed while you do this.
download and install web updater, run it it gets to a screen where it looks for the gps, plug the usb cable into the GPS (no USB hubs please!!!) Make sure it detects the GPS before you continue. Select the updates you need (don't install all the languages !!) after this is done the program will report the downloads are on the garmin, unplug the unit and it will reboot and whilst rebooting it will install the updates....so don't touch it until it reboots again and displays the regular screen....and make sure the batery is fully charged before you do this...!
