Hey guys, how are you? sorry if i opened ths thread on a wrong section but i have no idea where to ask this.
My problem is rather simple to describe, i have a garmin nuvi 1245 and he simply won't locate satellites. did anyone had this problem?? or knows on how to solve it??
1 - Take your GPS outside in an open space - preferably an open field.
2 - Turn on your GPS and hold in a vertical position.
3 - Press and hold the top left corner (satellite bars) for about five seconds. You should now have an information page displaying satellite reception.
3 - Wait for at least 10 minutes - do not walk about!
4 - Do any blue bars appear at the middle right of the screen?
5 - Do any of these blue bars fill with solid colour?
6 - How many?
7 - Does it finally report your Location at the top of the screen?
If no solid blue bars appear then your GPS is faulty.
If it displays at least 4 bars - then your GPS is good.
