Question about Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS Receiver
Intermittent loss of link to satellite. After a while if there is no downlink, the unit will go into automatic diagnostic routine... asks if we are inside a building (no), then asks if we are in Georgia (yes). Very unpredictable. Even fails out on open hwy without a tree or bldg around. Unit sits on upper dash of 2008 Toyota Highlander. Have not tried any resets, update of firmware, etc...just bought it less than a month ago. I have an old Magellan that has worked like a charm...only problem is updating database.
I finally found out what the problem was re the BMW. The antenna has to go at the back not in the front. The windshield was interferring with the satellite signal. Works great now on the BMW.
