Hello
I don't know whether you have made a factory reset to this device or not. If not, set it first and see whether it helps you. To make it factory settings:
[1] Press 'MENU""MENU" (down arrow to system setup) "ENT" (down arrow to RESET options/ ENT
[2] The unit asks if you want to reset all the options. Press [<---] to YES and then ENT. All options are reset, and the unit reverts back to map page at 4000 miles zoom range. Any recorded sonar logs of GPS data will be unchanged. OK.

I am having trouble getting location. Even when I get good satelite coverage (many showing on the screen) No location shows. It also seems to be slow in acquiring upon power up. How do a restore the units...


Hi!

i checked out the Garmin owner's manual for your GPS:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/eTrexVista_OwnersManual.pdf

On page 6 it explains that from the satellite page there are four options from which you can choose;

1) Use with GPS off
2) New location
3) Restart search
4) Continue acquiring

If the date displayed on your unit is NOT today's date, select "Restart Search"

Since the GPS does NOT lose memory when the batteries are removed, the problem is unlikely to be that the GPS doesn't know where it was used last.

If the displayed time for your area is not correct, use the main menu to access the setup pages and follow the instructions for setting the time found on page 49. This SHOULD get you on your way.

Good luck!

Standard Horizon CP-150 won't find satellites


Robert

It could be the RAM inside the plotter needs to be reset, Try the following procedure:

RAM Clear

Please note this procedure will erase any saved user points such as marks and routes and will put all of the internal settings back to factory default. In addition the unit will have to reacquire satellite signals, which may take a minute or two. If you have a large number of routes and/or marks you may wish to save them to a User C-Card prior to performing the RAM clear. The User C-Card is a blank memory card that is available through your local dealer or can be purchased from C-Map directly by contacting them at (800) 424-2627.

1) With power to the GPS turned off press and
hold the ENTER key.
2) Now press and hold the PWR key.
3) Keep both keys pressed until the GPS screen lights up and you see the SYSTEM TEST page displayed, then you can release both keys.

Note: If the GPS is not able to be turned off using the PWR key you can turn power off at the breaker or disconnect the power cable, press and hold the ENTER key then turn the breaker on or plug the power cable back in.

4) Make sure that the RAM menu function is selected, then press the ENTER key.
5) A sub-menu will appear that has two selections; RAM test and RAM clear, move the shuttle point knob down to select RAM clear.
6) Press the ENTER key, a prompt will appear asking if you are sure that you want to clear the RAM. Press the ENTER key to confirm and a prompt will now appear that informs you that the RAM has been cleared.
7) Press the CLEAR key and you will be back on
the SYSTEM TEST page.
8) Press and hold the PWR key until the unit turns off, then press and hold the PWR key until the unit turns back on again.

GPS won't pick up satellite reception.


Let's assume the unit is in good conditions. When you travel for more than 500 Kms the unit need more time to acquire the satellites, so the solution is to keep the unit on in a uncovered area for about 15 minutes.

Standard horizon 155c not acquiring signal


If the signal is good statement seems to imply that it is working, perhaps this is my misinterpretation of what you mean by this.
Signal refers to the abi;ity to connect to satellites
4 are requied for triangulation.
If the unit is fully charged and not connecting , then it is quite possible that the unit has a damaged SIIRF chip or whatever chip was used in your model to acquire satellite connection. The cost of repair is costly, it means total replacement of the M/Board.
Never start car with the unit connected into DC car power, spikes will damage the chip

It may simply be trying to load the almanac and ephemeris from the satellites. This can take up to 1/2 hour with a strong GPS signal outdoors.

Cannot get satelite signal for magellan triton 1500.


Options:
1) Walk outside and give the unit 3 - 5 minutes to acquire satellites.
2) Push the PAGE/GOTO button on the left side of the unit until you see the satellite page and see if you are picking up satellite.
3) If 2 and 3 do not work .. then reload the firmware again.

Garmin 60CSx - Cant find satellites


Try a re-load of the chipset driver. It is available from the Garmin website. I find that it occasionally becomes corrupt.
You can check by entering the "Main Menu" then "Setup" then "System" then press Menu and choose "Software Version".
If the "GPS SW Version" is 0.00 then a reload of the chipset driver will correct the problem.

Cheers.

GARMIN BASICS FOR THE ELECTRONICALLY CHALLENGED


first turn it on and let the unit acquire satellites to find your home state. Then you can set up your address as your "home location". When I first set it up, I was able to pick up the satellites in my bedroom (scary....)...everything worked just fine.

Do the following: 1 - Make sure you have fresh batteries in the unit and turn the unit on. 2 - Check the GPS date and Time. On the Main Menu at the bottom of the screen, you can see a date and time. If the date and time are not current, then the clock is your problem. You will have to wait for the almanac information to be updated. Details are below in a later section. 3 - Make sure your GPS is in the Normal Mode and not a demo mode. Verify other systems settings. Go to the main menu and click on Setup icon. From the Setup screen, access the System screen icon. Verify the following settings: GPS: normal WAAS: Enabled Language: English or your choice. Battery: Set according to your battery types. 4 - Check your GPSs Version Software. Go to the main menu and click on Setup icon. From the Setup screen, access the System screen icon. From the System screen, access the sub-menu icon in the upper right bar. Select "Software Version" from the list. Verify the actual software version for me. The latest version available for the eTrex Legend is version 3.90 dated March 2008. http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=711 Update the unit using this latest software and using Garmin's Webupdater. http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp If that won't work, use the following download page to access the latest software updates per units. http://www8.garmin.com/support/blosp.jsp 5 - Resetting your GPS clock and almanac information Next you may need to acclimate your unit to a new date and time (almanac information). If you had your unit off and without batteries for over a month since you last accessed satellites, then your clock and almanac information may be incorrect. Even Garmin acknowledges this problem after software updates and the problem with accessing satellites. They state: "unit data including alamanac information may be incorrect or cleared. Back up all user data before upgrading. After installation is complete, place unit with a clear view of the sky for 15-30 minutes to re-acquire almanac data. " I know of no way to reset the clock using the GPS menus. All I can suggest is that you do the following: A - turn the unit on and wait 5 minutes or so for the "Poor Satellite Reception" screen to appear. See page 7 of the owner's manual. B - Set the "new location" to your area using the map when the "poor satellite reception screen" appears. Be sure to use the "map" option and not the "automatic". C - Set the GPS outside with a clear view of the sky. Check on it every 10 minutes. When the "Poor Satellite Reception" screen appears again, then click on "Restart Search". The "Restart Search" option is used when the date provided in the GPS is not today's date. (See page 7 of the Owner's manual for an example) Legend Owners Manual: http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/eTrexLegend_OwnersManual.pdf D - Once the GPS can track 4 satellites, then the clock should reset and you should be fine. This process could take up to an hour. I have had this problem with my eTrex Vista and eTrex Legend (both backup GPSs) and resolved it by having the clock reset. In fact, I just tried my eTrex Legend today after not using it for many months and storing it without batteries and it had this same problem. I followed the steps above to fix the problem. This took about 35 minutes.
