Question about Garmin n vi 360 GPS Receiver
My unit is just over a year old. In the past few weeks I keep losing satellite reception. I am driving in the same locations I have always been. It is very frustrating because I can't trust it to get me through the city. I live outside of Chicago. This happens often and it usually doesn't come back right away. It even happens 2-3 miles out of my house. is there a way to reset the unit?
There is a problem with your GPS satellite receiver, The best thing to do is to connect an external antenna/satellite receiver which you can buy aftermarket, about $29.00. This is proven to give you back your GPS to life. You'll see your green bars again I have Garmin Nuvi 370 and this fixed the problem.

The reset button is at the back of the model under the flip-up antenna. Pressing this will reset the unit while preserving any of your user data.
A hard reset (loss of user data) can be done by holding the right bottom corner of the screen on boot-up.
You can also access the engineering menu to reset and test various parts of your device by pressing "View Map" and then pressing and holding the lower left corner of the screen for 5 seconds. On the Nuvi 680, you would need to press this corner once, then enter the Navigation page and press and hold the middle of the speedometer (0.0mph) for five seconds.
Before you try any resets, I would recommend downloading garmin's WebUpdater from their website and checking to see if there are any firmware updates for your device. Install those before any resetting.
