Lately my 2730 Garmin has been telling me that it can not connect to the satellites and that it lost satellite reception. & yet it works sometimes..

It was a beautiful clear summer day when it happened. Maybe the Russians are messing with our satellites?

Is this normal?

It never did that before, It almost left me stranded the other day.

Unplug it, find the reset button, reset the darn thing, plug it back in, and it should work. Ever Garmin I have owned seems to get confused and can't find it's way out of a paper sack until you reset it. I have no idea why.

I have that problem sometimes where it says "aquiring satellites" FOREVER. It's always when I ACTUALLY need directions though and never happens when I just have the thing turned on unneccesarily. lol

I had it happen to me three times on a ride last month. But it seems to have been working fine since then without doing a reset. Though I'll remember that in case it starts acting up again.

Now, if I can just get it to connect to the computer. Hmm, perhaps I'll try the reset for that problem!

GPS lost

Even Garmins get "lost" sometimes and need to be booted.
Call Garmin support at 1 800 800 1020 for help. Always been helpful to me.
