    Default HELP! Garmin Nuvi 3790 no conection with satellites

    Hi to everyone!
    I have sat nav Garmin Nuvi 3790 with North America Maps. It finds satellites but can't connect to them. I tried to find them with Start Single option and with clearing the NonVol memory and with hard reset, but noting worked.
    It can find 5 or 6 satellites, but it can't conect to them.
    Please advise me what to do! Is this a software problem or hardware?
    Thank You!

    p.s.
    the software of 3790 is ver.5.0. If I downgrade the software to 4.9 is this help to resolve the problem with the satellite conection?

    Hi,

    How long do u wait for the connection? Normally if it finds satellite's it will connect to them, but sometimes I.e when it was switched of for a long time, or if u traveled with it from the US to EU it can take up to 30min to get a solid connection. It needs to download a new almanac (check link). Leave it outside, preferably in open air and it will connect after a wile.

    Code:

    Hi again! My Garmin 3790 now is dead. I desided to downgrade the software to 4.9 and something goes wrong and it can't reboot now. The pc view it, I upgrade it to the last software, but it can't boot. When i power on it shows only Garmin and switch off after 5 seconds. Can I delete all the files from it and after that to copy the files from another 3790?
