I have the same problem, and so far the only solution is patience. If you are in a cutting, or between tall buildings, and the satellites are low down on the horizon, then it seems reasonable that reception will be between poor and zero. But in wide open spaces mine too sometimes loses the signal. Hang in there, and contact is restored.

Voice activation capabilities locked and none functioning after driving for 2 hours or so. Satellite reception getting lost even on a sunny day


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

Erratic behavior and improved satellite reception has been addressed in new system software / firmware update.

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

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

I hope that helps.

When I turn on my TomTom, it says GPS signal lost for about 3-4 minutes before it picks a signal up. This happens everytime no matter where I am. Then it works fine.


Does your GPS have a good view of the sky?
i.e. not mounted low on the dash of your car.

it really only needs to find 3 satellites to work but it might take a while to lock on if reception is low.

When you say every time you turn it on. I assume that you don't go days without turning it on. A GPS stores information about satellites and their orbits across the sky and keeps it for about 6 days. The download process of this information is fairly slow. If you run it most days the information gets updated while the gps is running so you tend not to notice.

Just some ideas to think about.

If you still can see the DirecTV guide and menu, the problem could be on your satellite receiver and not the TV. Unplug your receiver and plug it back.
If the rebooting did not work, I would suggest to swap the satellites receivers and see if it works.
Good Luck.
