Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver
Garmin nuvi200 was working fine and all of a sudden started getting following pop ups repeatedly and since then the GPS unit is not able to catch the satellite signal.
"Updating GPS Firmware 1%" This is followed by another pop up stating "GPS Firmware Update Complete". It can't "acquire satellites" either
I am still not able understand, how it started firmware update as I have never connected it to PC before. Is this set sophisticated enough to do firmware update from the satellite? :)
I tried reset on Garmin. After that, also tried with installing new latest firmware through Garmin Webupdater, But no results.
As soon as I start Garmin unit I get above popups. Please Help me.
Repeated "Updating GPS Firmware 1%" followed by GPS Firmare Update Completed, not really usable anymore. Has Garmin put out a fix for this? seems to be a fairly widespread problem with their product... (at least multiple versions of the Nuvi)
So what happens when you connect it to the PC?
Make sure no sd cards are installed while you do this.
download and install web updater, run it it gets to a screen where it looks for the gps, plug the usb cable into the GPS (no USB hubs please!!!) Make sure it detects the GPS before you continue. Select the updates you need (don't install all the languages !!) after this is done the program will report the downloads are on the garmin, unplug the unit and it will reboot and whilst rebooting it will install the updates....so don't touch it until it reboots again and displays the regular screen....and make sure the batery is fully charged before you do this...!
