GPS not searching for sattelite!!

Travelling in Melbourne, Australia right now and our GPS has quit. She isn't even looking for a sattelite. She says "Route calculation error: no roads near starting point". It has not been working for a couple of days. Big open spaces etc but no go. Anyone have any suggestions. She has been working wonderfully well in all parts of Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand.

Hi,
Look your best and probably quickest fix would be to contact the maker as they should be able to give you the answer straight away. How old is the GPS also and would it still be under warranty? I had one repaired for my yacht once and was pretty quick and reasonably priced.

Good luck ...what are you travelling in? Meantime you could pick up a UBD from a Post Office they are realatively cheap, cheaper than Melways. LOL

How do i register my callaway upro gps in australia?


Hi, I don't think you need to register it in Australia. If you've created an account at http://www.uprogps.com and purchased or want to purchase course credits, it doesn't matter where in the world you are. What does matter is if Callaway UPRO have the course you're looking for available for download. I just moved to Australia from the US and have found quite a number of courses in Australia available via UPRO. There are some that are not, but Callaway have graciously offered users the ability to "request" a course, either the basic layout or the PRO layout. Hope this helps.

Garmin Nuvi 660 Can not locate Sattelites


Please read the solution that resolved this problem for someone else. Most likely, you have already tried this. However, the antenna of your Nuvi 660 is the same as the 3xx Nuvi series. I know this because I have worked on them.

http://www.fixya.com/support/t1115882-garmin_nuvi_360


If the above procedure does not work for you, the entire antenna assembly will need to be replaced.
The other option is to purchase an external antenna for your Nuvi and plug it into the external antenna port (gold connector) on the Nuvi antenna assembly.

Best wishes,
- Jim

Garmin nuvi 350 9 months old


Have you ever tried updating the firmware with garmins webupdater?
Have you had this issue with a fully charged battery.
Do you hear anything rattle in the device when you shake it....I had a spIII color with similar issues, found out that one of the circuit board mounting screws was travelling around in the case.
If this is the case, and you are tech savvy you could open the GPS and probably find the culprit. If not ship it back to Garmin, for it is still under warranty.

GARMIN C330 WILL NOT LOCATE SATTELITE


Have you tried a Master Reset? It may help, but it WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. To do a Master Reset, turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the screen, then press and release the power button. Keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you are sure you want to reset. Follow the prompts.
