Hello balander,

In order for your GPS to calculate its own location, it needs to receive data reports from four or more GPS satellites. In order to receive these signals, the receiver must have a clear view of the sky. The GPS may be unable to receive these satellites if it is used indoors, inside of a vehicle (without an external antenna) or is around obstructions such as tall buildings, trees and local terrain such as mountains and hills.

I’d recommend that you try operating the GPS outdoors in a clear area away from obstructions. Turn the GPS on and allow up to five minutes for it to acquire satellites and get a “lock” on its current location. If it isn’t able to do this then your GPS or the antenna may be damaged and in need of service.

Best Regards,
Ken

How do I reset streetpilot i3 it cannot find any satellites


"switch off your i3, press and hold down the arrow button, then the wheel and finally the power button. Hold all three buttons down until the i3 switches on. Select 'Yes' to erase all user data. Follow the instructions and again leave your i3 outside for up to 40 minutes."

From a Garmin help page.

Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS cannot load map to memory card


The Garmin C340 comes preloaded with maps while the I3 require that the maps be installed onto a micro sd card.

You can place the micro SD card into a SD adapter and use a regular card reader to download your maps. When the software ask for 'Device' to download to use the drop down arrow and find your drive letter associated with the card reader. Using a card reader will be much faster since the it is ubs 2.0 vs ubs 1.1

You could also go to Garmin website and download and install the USB drivers, see link below.

Problem loading maps to ubs card


The i3 comes with a 128MB micro SD card - first can you be more specific as to what you refer to as "not recognized"? Do the usb drivers install correctly and after installation is the i3 recognized by your pc once you hook it up with the USB cable? Is the micro SD card in place? Is it all the way in the slot?
