Satellite signal taking ages to come up


If your tomtom is taking ages to find a satellite signal, it may just need the GPSquickfix updated.

You can get this updated using the Tomtom Home software thatcame with your device or you can download if from the Tomtom website.

The reason this happens is that the satellites are constantly moving on different paths etc and the GPSquickfix files is updated weekly with that weeks satellite paths.

Cant acquire satellite


first thing you need to do, is make sure the battery is fully charged. a low battery will cause slow down or prevent the satellites from linking up to your nuvi.

whether that cures the problem or not, go HERE and download the Garmin Web updater and install it on your computer and once the program is running, hook up you nuvi via the usb cable to your computer. the updater will find any available updates for your nuvi automaticly.

no sense searching the garmin site for something that may or may not be there when the updater does it for you.

My Maestro 3225 is stuck on the system settings


if your lucky, all it will need is a reset. start the unit and using a paper clip, insert it in the small hole on the side. if that fails, try the update using the Magellan link below...follow the update directions carefully. you must register your unit on the magellan site to download the update.

if neither solution works, id say the digitizer is bad (the touch screen) but the update normally cures this problem!

let me know if you need further help!

Takes a very long time for my Garmin to locate a satellite.


The real reason it takes so long to connect is:=

The battery has to be fully charged (by AC or USB)
Using just the car charger does not do it. It is a manintenance charger.

Hence the intermittent experience you are having Freshly charged works well, not charged poor connection
Check the charge level before you use it .

Touch screen probs


if your lucky, all it will need is a reset start the unit and using a paper clip, insert it in the small hole on the side. if that fails, try 2.62 3.61 update using the Magellan link below...follow the update directions to the letter..this update is huge (1.75GB) and takes about 45 minutes to install so be patient. you must register your unit on the magellan site to download the update.

if neither solution works, id say the digitizer is bad (the touch screen) but the update normally cures this problem!

Garmin 205w wont find satellites


Hi, Please check to make sure the GPS is set to USA and your time zone etc do this in the tools menu, then see if it will load the map.
check for updates @ "my.garmin.com"
you can also download a manual at garmin.com if needed.

Make sure you are clear nearby buildings, depends on satellites currently visible, and the length of time your GPS has been on.these may have an affect on getting a satellite signal but mostly they are suppose work just fine.


You may need a car adapter with a reciever in it.they cost about $119.00 at bestbuy. ouch! e know if this helped at all.

I would try to exchange it for a new one, it hasnt been that long that you have it.
Hope this helps, let me know what happened. good luck!

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.
