Hello,

Try fully charging the unit and leaving it stationary for about 20-30 minutes if you still dont lock satellites try giving the unit a firmware updates using Garmins WebUpdater software here is a link.

Acquiring satellites


The problem might be that your GPS is not able to connect to the satellite.
I'll see what the problem might be.

My Nuvi 350 takes 15-20 minutes to acquire satellites. Is there a change in settings that I could make to speed this up? Richard


Having worked on quite a few of these, your flip-up antenna/GPS receiver may have a problem. There is a part that fails that affects reception and eventually it can lead to full loss of satellite signal.

Please see this link for more info:

My 265 wt was working fine until 2 days ago


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

Erratic behavior is an indication that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

Satellite reception is one of the issues addressed in Garmin Nuvi 265WT firmware updates.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
