Hello,

Initially a GPS may take 20-30 minutes to obtain satellite lock, try leaving the unit powered on in a window or something of the sort. If you are still unable to achieve a lock try giving the unit a firmware update using Garmins Webupdater Software. Here is a link to the necessary software http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp.

Hope this helps!

Hi, According to your problem, first check the battery status. recharge the battery or replace it. Make sure that your GPS device is updated. Check the software update and the firmware update. You may need a master reset for your GPS device. But first make sure the battery is OK or replace the battery.

Approach G3 - when I power up the word Garmin displays but the screen flickers about every 5 seconds and nothing else happens. It will not turn off without removing a battery.


Welcome to FixYa.

Most of the causes of this kind of problem pertains to unstable operating software.

Update the internal operating software of your Garmin device.
  • Download and install the Garmin WebUpdater from this link http://www8.garmin.com/support/agree.jsp?id=931
  • Select the appropriate version of the WebUpdater based on your computer's operating system
  • Click "I agree to the above terms and want to proceed to the download page"
  • Connect your Gamin Device to the computer.
  • Click Download
  • Select Run when the pop up box appears
  • Select Run if a message appears asking "Do you want to run this software?"
  • Click Next when the WebUpdater installation page appears
  • Check the box to accept the licensing terms and select Next
  • Select Done to complete the WebUpdater download
  • Once WebUpdater is installed on your computer, select the application, if it does not automatically open, to run the program and follow these prompts:
  • Select Next on the WebUpdater Wizard
  • Select Find Device and Next
  • Select Next to update the unit software on your device
  • Follow the prompts to complete the process
  • Once you have updated your device, you will be prompted to search for additional updates. To load any additional updates, check the box next to the specific updates you wish to download. Select anything that relates to firmware and GPS software.
  • Once selected, click Next and check the Agreement box. At this point the updates will run directly to your Garmin device.
  • Once the update is complete you will see a box showing the downloads and if they were a success.
  • Click Finish and unplug your Garmin from the computer to allow the updates to load.
  • Once the update(s) are loaded, your device will return to the normal agreement screen and it will be ready to operate.
  • Some products will shut off after the update is complete. Turn the device back on to continue if this occurs.

Keep me posted.

My garmin approach 3 will not acquire a gps signal. Why?


There are many reasons for a GPS to fail to acquire signals from the satellites. You should be outdoors with a clear sky the first time you attempt to get it to work. If it's worked before, but stopped working, it may be defective. Garmin recommends many thing to do at this link:
