    I have the same problem

    Nuvi 200w sometimes takes 30-40 minutes to acquire satellites from locations in California and Michigan. After acquisition, instument is accurate within about 10 metres in both automobile and pedestrian modes. Does it need a better antenna?

    It may do better when connected to the car's power supply.

    It may do better if it is stationary during acquisition.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 300 model and from last few days its not picking the satellite signals when I open the antenna, it keeps saying searching for satellitie signal. What could be problem & can it be...


Hello there,
As GPS units are used, data is gathered which helps them acquire satellites quickly at the start of each use. If a device is used daily it should be able to acquire satellites in a minute or less. Using a GPS device while it is outdoors with a clear view of the entire sky is the ideal condition for acquiring satellites. Please know that there can be several different factors that may cause a GPS unit to not acquire satellites:
If your unit is trying to acquire satellites for the first time, it may take longer than normal to establish an initial position. If the unit is powered on and outdoors with a clear view of the sky this should not take more than 3-5 minutes. If your unit has not been used for an extended period of time (more than a month), it may take 3-5 minutes to acquire satellites. If your unit is indoors, it may not acquire satellites. Even standing next to a window indoors will block a majority of the sky which is needed for a device to locate and lock onto a satellite signal. If you have just finished updating the software in your unit or you have performed a master reset, your unit may take 3-5 minutes to acquire while outdoors as the data that is used to locate satellites may have been erased. If your unit has traveled over 500 miles while turned off or not tracking your travel, it may take 3-5 minutes to acquire even in ideal conditions. If your vehicle has a protective coating on its windshield or electronic devices which interfere with the unit receiving signal, your unit may need an external antenna* in order to acquire satellites. If you suspect this to be an issue, try taking the unit outside of the vehicle with a clear view of the sky for 3-5 minutes so that the unit can acquire satellites. If your unit loses satellites once moved back into your vehicle you will most likely need an external antenna*. If your unit is still having trouble acquiring satellites, please ensure that it has the latest version of operating software by using our WebUpdater program. Once your unit is updated please allow the unit to acquire satellites outdoors in a stationary position with a clear view of the sky.
*Note: Some units may not be compatible with an external antenna. Please check the Compatible Devices tab on the external antenna's page to see if your unit is listed.
Hope this was helpful to you. Goodluck Elect_Comp

Just purchased the above product and still no satallite signal after updating maps and completing master reset.


There's no indication of the GPS you have. There are, however, some problems that all GPS units have. If you're using it your car and your car has tinted windows, the windows may contain metal oxide. satellite signals have trouble penetrating this type of window. Try using the unit outside the car to make sure it can receive the satellite signal. If it can, you may need to get an external antenna for your GPS.

When I acquire pictures from SD card, it acquires


You shouldn't be leaving the old pictures on the card. That's a guaranteed way to get into trouble. After downloading your pictures, format the card in the camera.

If you want to transfer just the new pictures, you'll have to select those pictures for transfer. Since you declined to specify what software you're using, I can't tell you precisely how to do that.

Can't get satallite channels


If you are on Satellite then it only works off of channel 3 and you will not get any other channel on the tv set. But you will need to turn your sat box remote to change channels.
