Hello ciaran556,

In order to achieve a location lock your GPS receiver must receive complete reports from at least four Global Positioning Satellites. If you are standing still in an area with a relatively clear view of the sky, this should happen fairly quicky. However, if you are operating your GPS indoors, in a vehicle, or in an area with obstructions that block the line of sight between the receiver and the sky or if you are moving, it makes it more likely that the receiver will be unable to receive these signals or that part of the signals may be garbled or missed. In these cases it can take some time for the GPS receiver to aquire all the satellite data it needs.

Newer GPS receivers are much less susceptible to this issue, but it can still occur depending on how and where you are operating.

Best regards,
Ken

Some Sat Navs can't convert, If it's bought & set to UK & Ireland maps, then you are stuck. 2nd thing , even if you can use Europe Maps on your Sat Nav, you still will be unable, to load USA maps.
Sat Nav not compatable, You will have to buy a NEW ONE.

The 12v socket isn't working on 307cc (2005) - have looked at fuse but other things on same fuse working - need it for my sat-nav!


Have you tried plugging anything else into the socket to see if works? Or, have you tried plugging your sat-nav into a socket in a different vehicle?
Just trying to rule out the different possibilities.
There should be a fuse in the cord of the sat-nav device. Usually, the head of the plug end will unscrew and expose it. If that fuse is good, then it could be loose wire on the 12v socket. Check your wires and make sure it is grounded good. If all else fails, replace the 12v socket. It should be an easy fix.

Sat nav just stopped working today in perth wa, not picking up any sat signal. any way to fix this? is it my sat nav or the sats?


It isn't the sats. They're fine.

Try resetting the unit. Use a paper clip to press the button in a small hole on the bottom.

Try to reset the sats. To do this:

Tap the satellite bars in the lower right-hand corner.

Then, on the next screen, tap the satellite bars in the right-hand margin.

On the next screen, select "Configure." Choose a different configuration. Tap "Done," then "Done" again on the next screen.

Did that help?
