Hi I had this problem and its an antenna fault, give garmin a call and see if yours is still under warranty, if it is they will tell you to take it back to the retailor who will call garmin for a RA Number and they will replace it there and then. If your warranty has run out then call garmin to ask about repairs
Best Of Luck
If a GPS gets a factory reset, powered off for months, or powered up again in a different country, it will eventually scan the sky for any satellite it can find, and then download a new almanac and ephemeris - which can take up to 12 minutes after it finds the first satellite. This is best done stationary, to minimize the doppler effect until a fix is acquired.
okay so its a miracle. the nuvi is working again. the same week it stopped working (my previous post) i decided to make to trip to NY (i live in MA). halfway through CT almost getting to NY my nuvi kicked in again and started working perfectly again.
the problem did begin after i did the firmware updates and even after doing the hard reset nothing happened.
but i guess going for a long trip fixes it. well it fixed it for me. back in MA and no issues so far. i dont know how that makes sense but it worked.
