Purchased the ifinder H2O two months ago. For some reason when turning on the unit I can't get a satelite fix. Just the No Fix and flashing ? appear. I tried the auto search, but no results. What next?

Dear Rnjs please press and hold the power on button for about 15 seconds this will soft reset most electronic appliances.. If it doesn' t work then remove the batttery wait for about a minute and put it back in.. If none of these work then it may need a firmware flashing. Pleasse let me know how it turned up so that we can get to that flashing if neccessary..

I have a ifinder hunt GPS, it will not locate any satellites, it then prompts me to stop searching or continue to search for satellites. I have been trying this device over the last 10 months, mostly on...


With a normal GPS device, when you first switch it on, it needs some time to locate enough satelites. Most of the time it needs at least 5 satelites. Some time should be like minutes and not hours. After the GPS device fond enough satelites, it knows where it is and can when it is switched on again work faster. When you try to let the GPS search for satelites indoors, or without a free view to the sky, it is possible the receiver never can find satelites at all.
I don't know if any test of the Lowrance iFINDER Hunt GPS was placed on the net, but that is where you can check how long it should take for the GPS to find enough satelites.

The most common reasons are thus
1) You do not have the right PORT and BAUD set
Consult the manual for the software.
2) You are noit in a location where the sky is visible to the unit)
move outside and away from buildings or electrical items
3) Your battery power is too low to get a fix

4) nThe SIIRF chip is damaged

Can't get position fix


Check to see if the date and the start point location where you are located are properly set. The GPS needs close enough location and date to know where it is starting from.

Read the instructions about the initial setup.
