Question about Garmin Emap GPS Receiver

Not aquiring satellite or local time

I own a Garmin emap. Recently it is not aquiring any satellite signals. On further investigation I find that the local time is showing exactly 12 hours behind the actual time. I have correctly set the UTC offset and even reinstalled the software but no avail. Could somebody please throw some light on the matter

I had a similar problem, and Garmin recommended that I reset the user data by holding "Power" and "Esc" when you turn on the unit. I think it remedied my problem to some extent. However, note that this will indeed delete all of your waypoints and other data, so be sure to back them up somehow (even if it means manually writing down the waypoint coordinates and re-entering them later) if you don't want to lose them. Good luck.

I takes close over 3 minutes for my garmin 765T to locate a sattelite and I leave in a major east coast city. is something wrong with the system or is this normal

Holding the satellite signal strength indicator icon (upper left hand corner of screen) for a few seconds with your finger brings up a visual display showing signal strength of various satellites, accuracy, speed and elevation.

From a cold start - I too have experienced 2 to 3 minute wait times for satellite aquisition, so I would presume this is a normal. I own three different Garmin units apart from the 765T and satellite aquisition times vary on all three, most aquire satellites in under 4 minutes. Traffic on the other hand seems to take a while to load as this is dependent on availability in your area.

GPS 40 will not finish aquiring signal

make sure the gps have a full view of the sky. leave it in aquiring mode and let it sit there. My Emap took up to 35 mins once to reaquire the sats and get the updated info needed for position info.
if the unit has been off for a long time or moved a long distance from where it was last turned on, it can take a while for it to come back up.

My eMap (version 2.75) stays for hours in 'searching the sky'

My eMap was doing the same thing. Try putting in fresh batteries and make sure you are in a good reception area. While turning the eMap on, hold the on button and the ESC button at the same time until the system is on. It will ask if you want to reset. I opted for yes. My eMap started working again!

Since my last time i used garmin nuvi 260 it cant find a signal

Try going outside with a clear veiw of the sky, since it cant aquire a satellite its simulating the last place where you were. Try canceling the route and see if it connects with the satellite.

I have a Nuvi 200w that I received last December as a gift. This unit takes forever to aquire a satellite. The "DIFFICULY AQUIRING SATELLITES" message comes on 90% of the times I try to use it....

While under warranty.... yes.... Make sure it's been registered on their site before calling them and requesting an RMA number.

Good luck!
