    gps says locating satellites when on thats all

  • caselli Jul 15, 2008

    The screen shows acquiring satelite and a question mark flashes for ever. This morning it finally gave me the directions but I had to make a quick stop so I turned off my car and when I came back i was never able to get the directions as much as I tried it.

    Please advise what I can do, I really need my Garmin.

    Thanks,

    Esther

Probably a dead battery. If the battery gives out, the gps part won't power up even if it is plugged in and lights up. Sucks, Garmin wants 150 flat fee (330) to put in a new one (lol refurbish). I was planning on buying a couple of 880s but not now considering this obvious ripoff and engineered revenue stream....

Garmin C330


Make sure that at its location it can have access to see the satellites.

It is also possible that its front end receiver is starting to become weak in performance due to some failing parts.

No signal


You will have to leave the unit out in the open so it can 'see' the satellites. It might need from 20-30 minutes to acclimatize itself to the new location. It is set at Kansas because that's where the manufacturer is, so that is the last recorded satellite signal.

Aquiring satellites


Are you outside with a clear view of the sky? It should find satellites once the unit is turned on. Does it say "Looking for satellites" or "Acquiring satellites"?

If it is "looking for satellites" then it means that the unit have lost all data (time, date, location). If it is "acquiring satellites" then it have date and time, but not location.

Looking for satellites require a longer setup time (could be as much as 15 minutes). Acquiring satellites is much faster (not more than 2 minutes).

Date and time is updated from satellites once the unit gets a satellite lock.
