Question about Garmin nuvi 1370T Car GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I have an older Garmin which I've used without problems for several years and just bought a new 1370T which I tested on a 700-mile trip. 99.9 % of the time it worked flawlessly and predictably but the 0.1% makes me doubt its reliability: 1) From downtown Seattle I put in the address of a motel at Seatac airport. After a lengthy search for satellites it asked if I wanted a preview (or whatever the word was) of the trip yes or no. I said no and from there it declared at the top "gps off"!!!

Mcdevito75 here, If your garmin is 99% ok, you may have to deal with the 1 % errors. Remember no GPS is stsated as flwless, and we need 4--5 statlite hook ups for GPS. I'm in Florida and Use my Venturer GPS at times it takes an hour to go someplace and only 20 minutes to return, go figure I guess.

I own a Garmin Nuvi 1370t, and I have been using it for about 6 months. It has maps for both USA and Europe. About 3 days ago it stopped working properly. It accepts the addresses, but does not calculate...

Call Garmin. I had exact problem and nothing I did worked. They had me load new drivers, software and remove the settings on my Garmin. After about 50 minutes of different things, it now works and can locate satellites and routes.

My garmin 1370t is slow and can't find a satellite. Once a satellite is found, he can't find an address. Its as though it can't find itself

I had this same problem and called Garmin. The tech helped me to remove all settings and start over as well as upload new drivers and updated software. It works now. Hopefully it will last.

You can't active the Garmin lock without both entering a 4 digit code AND a security location. Take the unit back to where you entered the 4 digit code in order to unlock or you have to mail it to Garmin to have it unlocked for you (for a fee).

How to reset Garmin 1370T

My 1370 occassionally "takes a nap" and needs a hot reboot. What seems to work is to hold the power button down for about 10 seconds. This powers it down when locked up and starts it from off if it is stuck there.

My 700 gets stuck with the last map

Same problems, you have to update as far as I know and you have to update every year otherwise it will start to freeze up. It's a rip off because it's $99 a year. Does anyone know if the other GPS companies do this?
