Not aquiring satellite signals - GPS

    I bought a Nuvi 660 in February, and it constantly had problems acquiring satellites. Usually I could correct it by turning it off and on once or twice. Just this week that 'fix' stopped working. I downloaded new software, performed a master reset, but still nothing. Sending it back to Garmin for a new one.

    After 1.5 years, Nuvi 360 has difficulty acquiring satellites. It would find them once in awhile only to lose again in 5-10 minutes. Resetting the unit did not help. Any other ideas?

    I have had my Garmin 660 about 1 1/2 to 2 years and now it suddenly cannot aquire sattelite signal and the screen stays on night setting. I have tried the reset button, downloading latest software, etc. Nothing has helped. Considering a new GPS device, but may not be Garmin.

It seems to be a problem with Garmin's internal battery, you cannot replace it yourself. It has to be sent off to Garmin and here in the UK they charge £138 to replace the battery. They only last approximately 15 months then the problems begin, such as "not acquiring satellites". Won't be buying another.

Try looking up cost plus batteries if you have a location near you they can replace it cheap!!!!!!

My sportster 5 satellite radio is not getting signal


Is it "Aquiring Signal" or "Antenna Not Detected"? It could be the antenna, the dock, or the radio itself. For whatever reason, the Sportster 5 seems more fragile in the dock connections. TSS Radio has a repair guy who can fix this issue. You can reach him via email at sales@tss-radio.com

The dispaley states "aquiring antenna" but never finds it,can this be fixed?


Yes. However, it depends on what is causing the acquiring signal message. It could be that you just have to replace the dock or antenna. But it could also mean the unit is going bad, in which case it would need to be repaired. www.tss-radio.com has a repair guy, though with that unit being discontinued for as long as it has, he may not have parts. You may have to search around for a replacement on amazon or ebay.

Hello! Dan Busa with Dish Netywork here intermittent signal loss like that is usually caused by some sort of glitch a hard reset ( unplugging it for ten seconds ) will usually resolve this. If your signal strength is at or above 80 that should be fine, but keep in mind you need good signal strength on both the 119 and 110 satellites ideally you should be at 70 .

Aquiring Signal displays for 5-10 minutes before hearing audio


It's a bad Sirius tuner. You can find them on ebay for 50 or so rebuilt and they are better than new. It's cold solder joints on the antenna input plug. Hope this helps

I recommend trying the hard reset and the newest webupdater (March 31, 2010) and se if you get better results.

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

GPS wont aquire a satellite


    Hello there and happy new year
    If Your Unit Cannot Acquire Satellite Signals
  1. For your Garmin GPS unit to acquire the satellite signals it needs to function properly, the unit must be taken outside, away from mountains, tall buildings and heavy foliage where it can get a clear view of the sky. Keep the unit stationary for several minutes while the GPS unit acquires the necessary satellite signals.It may take several minutes for the unit to locate a good solid signal
  2. OK
  3. Hope this is very helpful please keep me posted on this ok?
    Best regards Michael

I keep getting ''Acquiring Signal'', but a signal is never aquired


Try moving your Sirius radio antenna to a window that faces west. Signal goes through windows better than walls.

My tom tom ONe cannot get a valid Satelite Signal just stays wait


If you are indoors then move outdoors to get a signal.

If you are outdoors then move your location by a few yards and sometimes it will suddenly aquire the satellites.

Happens occasionally with my unit. I normally set a route up then start driving and it suddenly starts to work OK.
