+Wesbo Posted August 1, 2008 Share Posted August 1, 2008 I have not gotten a D for any sats on mine ever, even after having the unit on for over 2 hours. And although I've gotten a bar for 48 and 51 its never been locked (ie. green). I am pretty much getting a bunch of nonsense from the Garmin customer service folks now. I would hope they are working to fix it but who knows. I'll hang on a little longer and give them a chance, but at some point I'll have to consider sending it back to the place I bought it. I'll apologize in advance if these are dumb questions... Did you set the GPS mode to WAAS? If you're done a reset since then, did you remember to set it back? Are you on the latest firmware? Are you sure? I loaded the latest firmware but it didn't 'take' for some reason. I didn't realize it until I checked a few days later. Had to load it again and this time it 'stuck' good. Are you inside a faraday cage? Are your batteries good? Have you tried a reset (make sure to turn WAAS back on if it resets itself)? Have you tried a 'hard' reset? If you still have your old GPSr handy, have you left them both to 'settle' for 20 minutes or so and then compared coordinates? Are they close? This would indicate that at least the antenna and software knows what it is doing. Just trying to eliminate sources of potential issues. Quote Link to comment
