Are you outdoors, open view to the sky? The GPS needs to relocate itself if it's been reset or moved far away from the last location it was used. It stores it's last location in memory just before you power down, so it can relocate quickly after you switch on.....presuming you are near where you switched it off.
And there's nothing wrong with checking if all the software on the GPS is up to date with the webupdater at garmins website

Toshiba Satellite C650 C655 C655d Dc Power Jack Harness how to replace


you can find self-help videos on youtube -- just search for the make/model description & watch the show; if you don't want to have to open up your laptop & use solder on connections, take it to the mall where they fix phones or PCs (get the parts first on ebay or amazon) and just pay for labor ($20-$30 for a 20-minute repair, if they're reasonable).

Hello,

Try fully charging the unit and leaving it stationary for about 20-30 minutes if you still dont lock satellites try giving the unit a firmware updates using Garmins WebUpdater software here is a link.

My toshiba 5200 has black screen how to repair?


Turn the laptop on, and take it into a darkened room.
If you _dimly_ see your "normal" Windows desktop & wallpaper,
then a $20 part, the "inverter", has failed. Take your computer to
a qualified technician, for disassembly of your computer, replacement of the part, reassembly, and testing.
Obviously, you'll pay $20, plus $60 to $75 for "labour", to get it repaired.

Or, if the computer is still under WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it replaced, at no cost to you.

I takes close over 3 minutes for my garmin 765T to locate a sattelite and I leave in a major east coast city. is something wrong with the system or is this normal


Holding the satellite signal strength indicator icon (upper left hand corner of screen) for a few seconds with your finger brings up a visual display showing signal strength of various satellites, accuracy, speed and elevation.

From a cold start - I too have experienced 2 to 3 minute wait times for satellite aquisition, so I would presume this is a normal. I own three different Garmin units apart from the 765T and satellite aquisition times vary on all three, most aquire satellites in under 4 minutes. Traffic on the other hand seems to take a while to load as this is dependent on availability in your area.

My toshiba satellite A205-S5804 shut off after 20 minute and i upgrade my system to windows 7 but i do not know why it shut off after 20 minute?


If you leave it on without using it, it will turn off to save battery. This can be changed in Start > Control Panel > Power Options.

Otherwise, it is overheating. But this is unlikely. Try the Power Options. If you can't find it, type Power Options in Start Search box.

Not receiving satellite signal


It can take 20 minutes or more to download the almanac and ephemeris from the GPS satellites. Just give it time.

I have a Nuvi 200w that I received last December as a gift. This unit takes forever to aquire a satellite. The "DIFFICULY AQUIRING SATELLITES" message comes on 90% of the times I try to use it....


While under warranty.... yes.... Make sure it's been registered on their site before calling them and requesting an RMA number.

Good luck!

Get rid of the "Satellite". I have had the same problem with two new batteries. Not good.
