No Satilite Signal

I was driving from Oakhill West Virgina to Pittsburgh and lost my satilte signal. It stayed that way for 4 hours and is never came back. I turned off the unit and turned it back serveral times on the trip but still no signal. I waited and tried the next day and still no signal. I checked to make sure antena was in place. Everything apears to be OK but no signal. This has happened before but it usually got a signal in about 10 minutes.

Please help. Thank you.

    If anyone feels kind-hearted and wishes to send their old 700/760 in order to fix others who's are repairable but not able to repair, re-post on here or let me know.

    I thank you as well as the thousands of people who put alot of money into these units.

I had roadmate 700 and after 2 years usage the signal reception became weaker and weaker. Today it is completely dead without acquiring satellite signal at all. I bought it on Mar. 2006 for about $400 and today I bought magellan mastreo 4000 (refurb) for total $97. This new one is amazing and junk the old one.

No signal problem on xm home satilite docking staion

You have probably lost a local repeater. Try moving it temporarily to a south-facing window. Here's another one to try: Put in dock and turn off with button on unit. wait 10 seconds, now press "2" "0" "7" "XM" buttons one at a time in that order ON THE FRONT of your SkyFi2 and the radio will go ON by itself! Now, press "Display" 4 times. You will see a screen that says "SAT1", "SAT2" and "TERR". You need a constant checkmark for DEMOD on at least one of the 3 boxes. Please tell me which ones are checkmarked and the average "BER%" number is. The lower the BER% number, the better. If BERis 100%, you are out of luck. Write back and let me know what you read. Press "Display" 5 more times to go back to regular screen. Thanks,
