Hello sothypaw,

In order to receive satellite signals your GPS receiver must have a clear view of the sky. If you are using the GPS inside of a vehicle the body of the vehicle may shield the unit from receiving these signals.

To minimize this the GPS should be mounted at the lowest place within the automobile that has a clear view of the windshield and side windows. If you continue to have problems then you might consider purchasing an external antenna for use with the GPS.

Even with a properly mounted GPS you may occasionally lose satellite reception due to local terrain (hills, mountains, dense forest etc.) or other obstructions (parking garages, tunnels, etc.) which can block reception.

Best Regards,
Ken

Screen only shows "press dot" and when you do, the dot moves.


That is a screen calebration. get out a pencil and use the erraser end to chase those dots until that screen goes away. if it does not, try a master reset, then replace the unit.

Why no am reception on grundig 800 millinium satelite radio


It depends on your location. Set reception mode to AM waves. Dial in the frequency of the station or enter it using the keypad. To tune in on a station, rotate the radio.

Garmin Nuvi 760 loses satelite reception. Tried to reset to factory settings and still having problem.


You may need to buy an additional external GPS receiving antenna. I did for my 750.
Because we love our electronics so tiny, they use an internal antenna. The gold input on the back of it, is for an external antenna available for under $20 from ebay. I used it when I lost reception in NYC, and also in rural areas. The external one has q magnet on it, and you can put it on the roof and have the cord come in your window to the unit (better than arm out window!)

Digital reception


Check the menu screen to see if you have an option to program digital channels . If not the answer is no . If you are on cable or satelite then you need not worry as the only people who will be affected by the digital change over will be if your on outdoor antenna or rabbitt ears only with your tv. Your cable and satelite providers will not change you over on feb 19th 2009 . Everythung will be the same . Good luck

Picture problems


This could be an unshielded cable problem. Also magnetisam from speaker(s)(i.e. subwoofer) could affect signal from satelite antenna, or could affect satelite receiver if it's near.
