Will it work with analogue TV using scart and without old free view box


Depends what is on the satellite receiver. If there is a SCART connection, you can put it in your TV. As soon as the satellite receiver only has a HDMI, you can't connect them.
Be aware, that even digital receivers for analog TV receivers, with both, SCART and HDMI often not forward digital signals, because of copyright restrictions. Not even not copyrighted content.

Gps singal lost


Often, when your GPS is in a "covered" area ... e.g. inside a building, in a tunnel, under a bridge, amongst / under tall buildings, etc... when there is no open space (directly) between your GPS and the satellites, your GPS will loose its satellite signals. If you're in such locations, try to find some "open space" and wait a bit for the signals to be picked up again.
Another common reason why the GPS doesn't get signals, or doesn't get the signals quickly, is because the "latest" satellite positions (locations) have not been updated in your GPS. If/when you connect your GPS to your computer (e.g. using HOME ) and download the GPS satellite (QuickFix) location information, your GPS will have the most recent locations of the satellites in your vicinity/region. With this information, your GPS can pick up the signals more quickly ... instead of having to search/scan around to find the signals ... which can take a bit more time. While your GPS is searching for the satellite signals, it shows the "signal lost" or "no GPS signal" message.

Does the gps on life360 require both internet and satellite to work


It requires Internet to update maps, install corrections, or additional features. It requires the GPS signals transmitted by the satellites to know where it is and where to go.
If you do not want to update the device you need just the GPS signals. However those satellites may be moving about and theirs positions have to be reported to the device otherwise it will take it longer to lock in on the signals, and might even never find the satellites.

Says loooking for signal - even when plugged into car charger - could it be the gps battery


Being plug into a car charger (or wall charger) has little to do with not finding a GPS signal and this apply to your gps battery as long as you get power to your receiver.

It is not unusual for GPS to have problem finding suitable Satellites signals especially inside a building or areas where you do not have a clear view of the sky above you and the unit (e.g. High Rise buildings).

In order to speed up the location of satellites signals, you need to update your unit A-GPS Satellite locations database on a regular basis via 'Tom Tom Home' (which should be installed on your PC or Laptop). You can download the latest version of Tom Tom Home from the official site.

Without A-GPS and the unit not being in regular use, your unit may take a very long time to find suitable satellite signals. My own TomtOm One, without an up to date a-gps database has taken over 15 minutes to locate the required signals even in a relatively 'open' air location!

Hope it helps and clarify the issue.

I lose satellite connection every time I turn on my GPS unit. After few minutes connection will be restore by itself. Why this happing and what can I do to fix it. Frank


If you shut the unit down - and remove it from the power cord in your car, this is expected.

When powered down, the unit is not capable of maintaining contact with the satellites in the sky. When you power it up, it needs to receive signals from 3 or more satellites get a "fix" or calculate your position in the world. The more signals received, the the more accurately displayed your position will be. The device must use the signal data, perform calculations and bring up a map of your area.

The "Lost Satellite Reception" message also occurs whenever the GPS does not have a clear view of the sky over the earth's equator. This can be from a garage roof to heavy foliage (tree cover) - and even when driving between tall buildings. Usually, it shouldn't take more than a minute or so (once the obstructions have been cleared) for the GPS to reacquire the signals, calculate and display your new position.

I hope this helps!

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

Lost signal from the satellite


Signal Fade And Loss ~ Important, especially during winter!

Keep in mind that satellite broadcasts occur directly from fixed satellites in space to users. UPLINKS TO that satellite can happen from almost anywhere in the world! This includes broadcasts from remote studios, satellite vans and trucks.

Even signals from the main providing studios are susceptible to weather conditons even tho they have huge, high-gain transmitting dishes!

Weather is a major factor for both the uplinks and downlinks! Storm clouds can block the signals anywhere in the signal path(s). Rain clouds do too ~ even if it's not raining yet. Water-laden clouds make some of the BEST signal attenuators.

So one may have a gorgeous day in San Diego (let's say), but storms back east could trash satellite reception at his location and potentially everywhere else!

As you know, weather conditions all over the US are changing constantly with many severe storms occurring this past week and during any winter. In fact this week there was total signal loss on several satellites and I suspect storms back east were a big factor.

So it could have just been issues of timing for you. The UPLINK had intermittent problems with signal paths semi-crippled by weather... YOUR weather was CLEAR, but your reception was far from problem free ~ only because of weather problems elsewhere.

If you see intermittent satellite reception do check out the weather... especially back east.

Hope this helps!

Is this a digital television? will i need a digital box with my television in 2009 ?


The "DTV ANSWERS" website says that any TV made since 2004, has a built-in digital tuner and will not require a digital converter box. If you currently receive your TV signals from your cable, satellite, or phone company, you won't need a converter box, even if you have an older non-digital TV. Only people with TVs made before 2004, will need to purchase a converter box, if they don't use TV signals from cable, satellite, or phone companies.
You might want to visit the RCA website, to see if they have a phone number to call, for any additional questions.

Not aquiring satellite or local time


I had a similar problem, and Garmin recommended that I reset the user data by holding "Power" and "Esc" when you turn on the unit. I think it remedied my problem to some extent. However, note that this will indeed delete all of your waypoints and other data, so be sure to back them up somehow (even if it means manually writing down the waypoint coordinates and re-entering them later) if you don't want to lose them. Good luck.
