Acquiring GPS Satellite Signals

The device may need a clear view of the sky to acquire satellite signals. The time and date are set automatically based on the GPS position.

  1. Turn on the device.
  2. Wait while the device locates satellites.

    It may take 30 to 60 seconds to acquire satellite signals.

To view the GPS satellite signal strength, select Settings menu > System > Satellite Positioning.

If the device loses satellite signals, a flashing question mark appears over the boat position indicator (Vessel symbol) on the chart.

For more information about GPS, go to For help acquiring satellite signals, see My device will not acquire GPS signals.
