My Garmin Chartplotter was having a difficult time finding satellites. Most times I would have to select auto locate just to get it on line. Called Garmin and get them to send me the latest software. Straight forward to load. Wow what a difference. Plotter aligns almost instantly now! I highly recommend to check the software version of your Garmin product.

I think it was 3.40. Check the Garmin website. It lists all the latest software versions for all models.
