Mine did the same, and said no gps no fix. I called the factory, now called Northstar, tech said to reset unit, and it worked. Great signal strength. Turn unit on and access menu, access factory settings,hit factory reset. However you will lose all your waypoints.

Intermittent connection is caused by low battery or faulty battery. poor vision to the sky or interference from other devices near it

If it is reading "ACQUIRING SIGNAL" WHAT CAN THIS MEAN??


This typicall represents a failed antenna with either a loose connection or failed wire to the antenna. The "Acquiring Signal" indicates the receiver is trying to locate and decipher a signal from a sattelite. THe antenna is your first diagnostic. After that the receiver is the culprit. When your receiver is Activated or Authorized it is given a "key" to decipher the sattelite signals If it loses the "key" you can try and have Sirius reinitialize by contacting support. If they cannot send the signal and get the proper "Key" loaded its a defect in the receiver functionality.

Clairon CMD4 has been installed in boat for several seasons and has been working. Tried to operate for this season and I am constantly getting ''linking'' message on radio. Called Sirius to resend signal...


Linking is usualy a antenna problem but you can try disconecting power lines to satelite reciever not just head unit for 30 sec and reconect let it reboot and see if it picks up signal! It is important to make sure complete power from batt is disconected to do complete reset! You should be able to see ESN # on channell 0 or get 184 to make sure u are connecting with sattelite! Then it is sirius sat problem!

No gps signal


If the unit hasn't been used ofr a while it sometimes looses information it needs to figure out the sattelites. So what you need to do is charge it up or have it on the carger and perform a hard reset. The unit will then download new information and be able to figure out where it is and then how to get 'there'. This can take up to an hour but usually about 5-10 minutes if it has a good view of the sky so it can see the sattelites.

This is a common thing with all gps recievers.

Unit taking long time to establish satellite connection?


5-7 mins is not unusual in many cases. Battery condition has a lot to do with the time it takes to establish connection. Recharge or replkace batteries with better quality ones and keep well charged up if you use rechargeable ones

Poor gps reception on tom tom one


my tom tom one third edition connects in less than 40 seconds from ca cold start.
first reset everything then connect it to your computer and upload all the needed updates to it( especially the QUICKGPSFIX feature that speeds up the time it takes to connect to satellites.
after that. go outside and wait for the signal to be acquired ( less than 2 minutes)

GARMIN C330 WILL NOT LOCATE SATTELITE


Have you tried a Master Reset? It may help, but it WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. To do a Master Reset, turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the screen, then press and release the power button. Keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you are sure you want to reset. Follow the prompts.
