Hi, Just opened a new 1490LMT. Can't get a satelite signal. Small red bar appears on left top corner. Also, I'm in Winnipeg and can't get the GPS to acknowledge Winnipeg. Toronto is on screen.


Hello,

When travelling with your GPS it may take 20-30 minutes for it to acquire a satellite signal. For it to acquire the signal it should be stationary so when visiting the family or in the hotel leave it on you should get satellite lock.

Hope this helps!

Updated unit and still acquiring satelites is showing, what can i do?


If your unit is still acquiring satellite, then it means the signal strength is weak, try to get it outside where it can be facing the sky directly so it will be able to acquire satellite. Once you just update your gps receiver, it seems like it is brand new and when it wants to first acquire satellite, it might take longer to do so. But if it has access to the sky directly, it should take about 3 to 5 minutes to acquire.
If your unit is indoor, it may not acquire satellite, even if it is close to the window, it will not, but if it is outside, then it will acquire faster.
Check if you have any protective coating on your windshield or electronic devices which interfere with the unit from receiving signal from the satellite. Try to see if your gps receiver can use an antenna, then connect one to it and your gps will acquire satellite.
Try to reset your gps first before trying any other solution for the unit.

Garmnin C330 slow to acquire satelites.


Make sure you are not moving. This way it can triangulate better. Wait for it to recognize at least 3 satellites. Then cruise as you wish as soon as it is synced with the satellites.
Also, be sure that you are on an open field with minimal aerial hindrances.

Your problem is normal to all GPS devices. It does take time to acquire satellite signal.

hope this helps!
