If it is a new unit it can take up to 30 minutes to find the satellite for the first time. I suggest connecting in your car and make sure it is charging and leave it on while driving to work or running errands.
If it has been working and now it is not try pressing the reset button

  • Turn the Garmin Nuvi 1300 off.
  • Press your finger against the bottom-right corner of the Garmin display screen. Leave your finger in place as you power the unit on.
  • Release your finger when the display screen asks, "Do you want to erase all user data?" Use your finger to tap "Yes." The unit will begin to reboot. Do not use the unit until the main menu is displayed. The reset process should take about 45 seconds.
Once you get it going; go to the Garmin website and update the unit. Thanks for using FixYa

Gps singal lost


Often, when your GPS is in a "covered" area ... e.g. inside a building, in a tunnel, under a bridge, amongst / under tall buildings, etc... when there is no open space (directly) between your GPS and the satellites, your GPS will loose its satellite signals. If you're in such locations, try to find some "open space" and wait a bit for the signals to be picked up again.
Another common reason why the GPS doesn't get signals, or doesn't get the signals quickly, is because the "latest" satellite positions (locations) have not been updated in your GPS. If/when you connect your GPS to your computer (e.g. using HOME ) and download the GPS satellite (QuickFix) location information, your GPS will have the most recent locations of the satellites in your vicinity/region. With this information, your GPS can pick up the signals more quickly ... instead of having to search/scan around to find the signals ... which can take a bit more time. While your GPS is searching for the satellite signals, it shows the "signal lost" or "no GPS signal" message.

Whenever I use location function using GPS, the phone just hangs. Any solution?


  • This may not fix the problem but here are some tips that will help. When it is "just hanging" it is trying to receive a satellite signal. These are helpful tips to receiving that signal.
  1. Make sure you are outside and in the open. This is a phone and while it has GPS functions you have to be in the most optimal position.
  2. GPS units that work well have an antenna made to receive satellite signals faster than the phone antenna.
  3. Make sure you are standing still and not driving or walking fast. You have to give the satellites time to lock in on your position.
  4. Bad weather or even an overcast can effect satellites transmissions.
  5. Satellites move around and sometimes they are temporary a bit out of range.
  6. If a signal is not found try again a bit later and see if the satellites signals are being received better.

Nuvi 200w will not pick up sattalites


Make sure you are outside and as much in the open as possible. Staying stationary is the best way to insure a satellite signal. Give your GPS a few minutes if necessary to pick up a satellite signal. Also remember poor weather can effect a satellite signal reaching your GPS, just like it will satellite TV.

I don't have Satellite signal! I tried to acquiere satellite signal with my Garmin Nuvi 1350! The screen always says locating satellites but nothin happens! The satellite bars are not green!What can I do...


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.

With the bell dish we have the oblong dish can get 100% signal for satelite 91 and 100% on satelite 82 but not both at the same time?


Guest 10

With multiple satellite dishes, you will get a lower signal strength on mulitple satellites as opposed to individual satellites. The reason being when pointed at one satellite, you are pointed directly at that satellite. With multiple satellites, you are pointed in the general direction of the multiple satellites so the signal will not be as strong compared to pointing directly at the individual satellite. Normally, a signal strength 50 or above is sufficient. I hope this helps.

Loud High pitched noise


That's interference from some microwave transmitter on a tower. The interfering signal is covered up by a strong satellite signal. When you lose the strong satellite signal, then the ground-based microwave signal takes over, which your receiver trys to play back. (It's an unintelligible encrypted signal)

Is there a tower with a big "drum" pointing in your antenna's general direction? Are there "stunned" (or dead) birds in your parking lot from time-to-time? Your antenna must be moved to a different part of the roof, or even relocate it to the side of the building where you have direct line-of-signal to the satellite.

Hope this helps!

MENU PICTURE ON TV BUT NO CHANNELS


This is a problem with weak signal strength, You will need to find a better place to put your television so it can receive enough signal to operate correctly. If this does not solve the problem, you will need to check the satellite box for problems with receiving the signal from the satellite. You may need help from the satellite company to check the signal strength output and input levels to make sure its working properly. I hope this information helps you solve you problem with the loss of satellite signal in your television. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!

Lost signal from the satellite


Signal Fade And Loss ~ Important, especially during winter!

Keep in mind that satellite broadcasts occur directly from fixed satellites in space to users. UPLINKS TO that satellite can happen from almost anywhere in the world! This includes broadcasts from remote studios, satellite vans and trucks.

Even signals from the main providing studios are susceptible to weather conditons even tho they have huge, high-gain transmitting dishes!

Weather is a major factor for both the uplinks and downlinks! Storm clouds can block the signals anywhere in the signal path(s). Rain clouds do too ~ even if it's not raining yet. Water-laden clouds make some of the BEST signal attenuators.

So one may have a gorgeous day in San Diego (let's say), but storms back east could trash satellite reception at his location and potentially everywhere else!

As you know, weather conditions all over the US are changing constantly with many severe storms occurring this past week and during any winter. In fact this week there was total signal loss on several satellites and I suspect storms back east were a big factor.

So it could have just been issues of timing for you. The UPLINK had intermittent problems with signal paths semi-crippled by weather... YOUR weather was CLEAR, but your reception was far from problem free ~ only because of weather problems elsewhere.

If you see intermittent satellite reception do check out the weather... especially back east.

Hope this helps!
