Updating your operating system software might solve the problem.

  • Download WEBUPDATER from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
  • Install it on your computer and connect your satnav to the computer with the mini USB cable
  • Run the WEBUPDATER program and it will search for updates to your satnav.
  • Install whatever updates it finds.
  • When the software has updated you get the option of installing optional updates. It's not necessary to install these unless you wish to
This may solve your problem.

My zumo 550 is still looking for satellites


Hello,

If you have traveled with the unit lately you may need to let it sit and acquire satellites for up to 20-30 minutes. Also your unit may need a firmware update. If none of these work try purchasing an external antenna this may fix your problem.

hope this helps!

Updated unit and still acquiring satelites is showing, what can i do?


If your unit is still acquiring satellite, then it means the signal strength is weak, try to get it outside where it can be facing the sky directly so it will be able to acquire satellite. Once you just update your gps receiver, it seems like it is brand new and when it wants to first acquire satellite, it might take longer to do so. But if it has access to the sky directly, it should take about 3 to 5 minutes to acquire.
If your unit is indoor, it may not acquire satellite, even if it is close to the window, it will not, but if it is outside, then it will acquire faster.
Check if you have any protective coating on your windshield or electronic devices which interfere with the unit from receiving signal from the satellite. Try to see if your gps receiver can use an antenna, then connect one to it and your gps will acquire satellite.
Try to reset your gps first before trying any other solution for the unit.

Garmin 755T Issue - Firmware Update and acquiring satellite


Hi Bob,
You need to do a complete reset by turning it on and at the same time press the bottom right hand corner of the screen this will reset it to factory condition. having done that when you switch it on again leave some where where it has a clear view of the sky and leave it for about 1/2 an hour. This should sort it out for you. Best of luck.

Is not able to access the satellite


Update your unit. Garmin has this problem where you try to enter a location before it acquires satellites. It is very noticeable on the Garmin Nuvi 650 also. Another thing you can try is wait for it to acquire the satellite and see if you don't get up and running. In some cases, it can take up to 4 minutes to acquire satellite information. If this is also your case, updating the firmware to 6.10 should fix that also.

To find what your firmware version you have, click on the TOOLS icon (wrench), click on SYSTEM, ABOUT (bottom of your screen). Anything less than 6.1, you'll have issues.

Trouble Acquiring Satellites


This can be easily fixed....
I had the same problem, I returned first piece and exchanged for the second. Had the same problem with second and took back to Circuit city. The GPS guys took out 3rd one for me and had same problem. Then the manager came who has been using these for couple of years and tried to set the home location 3 times and it worked 3rd time. He did the same for the second returned piece and it also worked. He says since these pieces are programmed for Kansas we need to give 3-4 tried before the piece first 'locates' satellite and then acquires satellite. After the the piece just turned out to be awesome.
