    Can i input the width, &length height, of motorhome into my garmin sat nav.

    No, you can't. The GPS signal co-ordinates from its exact location vs the US govt satellites. It doesn't matter what size your motorhome is.

    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?

    Wont calculat route

    sat nav needs a valid gps signal to start calculating route, even if it found entered address. Address is searched on built-in map, not live gps position. That means, sat nav may have problem with gps signal. Try to reset device to its factory settings first. hope this helps

    Updates for garmin sat nav

    To increase the accuracy of your Garmin Nuvi 205W, I recommend you use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device. Software improvements for acquiring satellite lock and location accuracy have been made.

    I hope that helps.

    Hi.I have Garmin 755 and need to help me.When i bought it ,it's worked good .It has 8 month old. The problem is,when i turn on ,working fine 1 minute, after that i saw on it that: Acquiring...

    I'm not sure if you are aware but there have been recent warnings that sat navs may start to fail and will stop working all together by 2010.

    Are all sat-navs going to fail in 2010? Jump to Comments
    sat_nav_fail.jpg?w=300&h=200 Sat-nav systems could become defunct next year, according to a report from the U.S. Government.
    It reckons a lack of investment and development into the U.S. Air Force’s GPS (Global Positioning System) will cause the failure.
    But the U.S. Air Force said sat-navs will carry on working as normal. So who’s right?

    I’ve been meaning to buy a sat-nav for some time due to my girlfriend’s “interesting” map-reading skills.
    There’s no doubt reading a map can be more rewarding, but the convenience of using a sat-nav is a welcome one.
    But recent claims from the U.S. Government’s Accountability Office (GAO) concerned me slightly. It warned the 20-year-old Navstar GPS system is in urgent need of an upgrade.
    The GAO criticised the U.S. Air Force Space Command for offering the service for free, and said the lack of investment meant both military and civilian systems could be affected.
    Apparently the GPS system overran its budget by £562 million and the next satellite is due to go into orbit in August 2009 – almost two years behind schedule.
    “It is uncertain whether the Air Force will be able to acquire new satellites in time to maintain current GPS service without interruption,” the GAO said.
    But the U.S. Air Force Space Command left a comment on Twitter declaring there is nothing to worry about.
    “Be assured, the issue is not whether GPS will stop working. There’s only a small risk we will not continue to exceed our performance standard.
    “Since 1995, GPS has never failed to exceed performance standards,” the U.S. Air Force Space Command said.
    Drivers across the world will be affected if sat-navs fail to operate in 2010.
    If the satellites do go down, a new EU sat-nav system called ‘Galileo’ could be in big demand when it goes worldwide in 2013.
    Until then, I’m going to put my faith in the U.S. Air Force and take the plunge with a sat-nav.

    This does worry me, because I have had simliar problems with my work's sat nav, even on clear sunny days.

    Rmin sat nav very slow to get a fix on a satelitte

    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,
    Go Ahead. Use Us.
