Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver

Question: Why will my nüvi 2xx not find satellite signals?
p>If your nuvi 2xx is not acquiring satellite signals, you may need to download and run our WebUpdater program.
If you are still having issues after updating the software on your unit, you may need to do a full master reset. Please note that a master reset erases Favorites and waypoints. Before proceeding, you may want to back up information you want to keep.
To do a full master reset to the nuvi 200 series unit:
1. Turn off the device.
2. Place your fingertip or the eraser end of a pencil in the bottom right corner of the touchscreen.
3. Apply pressure in the bottom right corner of the screen.
4. While pressing down on the screen, power on the unit and continue pressing on the screen. A message displays to confirm that you really want to delete all user data.
5. Touch Yes.
6. Your unit restarts automatically. You must go through the set up procedure again.
Once you complete the reset, place the nuvi unit outside where it has a clear unobstructed view of the sky for 15-30 minutes. Keep it in a stationary position until it reacquires satellites.

Sorry folks, I think the RF unit in the 200W is vastly inferior to the 200. I just received a Nuvi 200 in the mail from a Discover card offer, and it works great. I did the updates and reset as advised. I turn them both on, set them side by side, and the 200 locks on to satellites in seconds. The 200w takes over 10 minutes. I suspect a design flaw. I purchased my 200w back in Nov. 2007, maybe they have quietly upgraded the RF unit so that new customers won't be so unhappy.
