GPS satellite lock on slow recently

Postby carlover » Tue Jun 24, 2014 7:05 pm

Not sure anyone notice that the Satellite lock on very slowly recently and sometimes, it just lost reception.

I have tested my car GPS which come with my car and my Nuvi 3650, both also receive the signal quite badly.

Can anyone feedback, thanks.

Dear Sir,
According to this website http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/?Do=constellationStatus all 32 satellites are healthy. I also used my Nuvi1460 this morning. It was warm boot with satellite lock within 3 seconds. No issues so far.

Try testing your Nuvi3560 outside the car, in an open area with a clear view of the sky. This will prove whether the windscreen of your car is impeding the signal reception.

Thanks for your reply. I have fast satellite lock on initially when I installed in my car since December 2013 and the GPS reception seems to be weak these few weeks so I suspect the antenna is having some issue.

I will test my old Holux 62AS and see how is the GPS reception and it the Holux has no issue then probably I will need to send my Nuvi 3560 to AllBright for repair.

Me too, my Garmin Nuvi 300 also can't received the Satellite signal easily, it took sometimes to connect with the satellite.
