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

Hi there Bernhard Siefert... (G'day)

(from the other side of the date-line.. going out on the SF Bay today to watch our Blue Angels (again))... God Bless them...!

Easy to do...
(network search) Just search on your right combo...

I used
"Teledyne Laars spares service Melbourne Australia"

and got (after wading thru a lot of SF malarkey)

Try it yourself ... your results will probably be better...

There are lots of heater questions and answers on this site if you were thinking about getting your heater running quickly... but if you are un-comfortable with tubing wrenches and GAS heaters...
a qualified service technician usually SEEMS to be the safest approach.

I've always done my own repairs... because leaving explosives in the hands of rookies and apprentices scares me... and life is good.

Good luck... be safe!

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.
