Hello,I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.
Does the Nuvi pick up satellites ok if you turn it on outdoors?
Yes, smoke from forest fires will cause the signal to disperse and weaken, so that is the likely cause of the loss of signal.
There has been a payment failure for your call request.
Can you try operating the device in a smoke-free area and confirm back that it works ok there?
