I found it worked better when I put my home address in,however as far as satnav's go I don't believe the Nuvi is that good and I wouldn't depend on it totally.

Updates for garmin sat nav


To increase the accuracy of your Garmin Nuvi 205W, I recommend you use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device. Software improvements for acquiring satellite lock and location accuracy have been made.

I hope that helps.

Trouble locating satellites


Hi, my name is Vince & i had that very same problem with my nuvi 200w, have you tried to update it on your pc ?, i updated mine after travelling down the motorway at 40 miles an hour thinking that their was road works after the sat nav told me. I also found that updating it seemed to increase the signal strength too, try it, it may solve your problem.
