Garmin 64 not acquiring satellites

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

HI! I've had this unit for almost five years with no problems. All of a sudden it's stopped acquiring satellites. I've done a hard reset a couple of times and as soon as I power it on, it works, then loses satellites minutes later. Has anyone experienced this and if so, have you learned of a solution?

Yes, mine does this.

 

To get round it, I change the GPS setting (setup / system menu) from 'GPS+GLONASS' to 'GPS' only. If I use it like this for a couple of hours, then change it back to GPS+GLONASS, it works fine ......... until the next time !

 

I'm in the UK.

I've run into this issue a few times in the past with my Oregon 600, and a previous discussion here showed that a few others had experienced the same thing. In fact, I experienced this issue again this weekend. I guess I had switched GLONASS back on at some point, but it decided it didn't like that again, so I'm back to just GPS again. I think the 64 series uses similar software/firmware as the Oregon 600 series, so there must be a bug in there somewhere.

I've encountered that problem as well with my Oregon 600.

 

Will work fine for months then lose satellites or not lock on.

Disabling Glonass usually fixes it, but if I'm under a thick tree canopy it may not.
