I had this on my Tom-Tom once. I think I reset it using the poke-a-pen-in reset switch, turned it off, charged it up with USB cable, updated it from the site, then went outside with it and it then finally acquired.

It soes not a acquire a satlelite.


I have this unit and have not had a problem acquiring satellites except under dense canapy cover. In open view you should always be able to acquire enough satellites. You should be able to see the available satellites on the start up screen and watch them being acquired. According to the manual if a satellite fix is not established a list of solutions is suppose to appear. Hope this helps.

No satellites signal


Update/Reload your unit's GPS and sytem software via Garmin page or use Web Updater. Your unit will be functioning again. This problem also occurs if you leave your unit on a dash board in a car and it is exposed to hight temperature.

The GPS cannot get satellite signal. It only displayed "acquiring satellite" considering that we are in open fields with clear sky.


Shut off the Receiver...

Press and hold Page + Menu + Power...

Then select "Yes" to erase all user data...

Leave it on with a clear view of the sky without moving for about 30 minutes to acquire the satellites.

Gpsmap 60c can not acquire satellites even when left outside for 15 minutes in a place where it usually has no problem. Problem happened overnight.


Are there any there any satellites listed on the satellite overview page?

What is the GPS SW Version listed by the unit?

0.00?

Not acquire sattelites


place the GPS outside with a clear 360 degree view of sky or as much of the horizon as possible and leave it for a few hours it needs to download the almanac from all satellites before doing this

from the Acquiring Satellite page press menu and make sure that the topline of the menu reads "Use With GPS off" if it reads "Use With GPS on" (this means it will not find any SAT's ie for indoor use) press enter to turn the GPS Receiver on
