I have an iWay500c and for the most part it is working fine.
One problem I do have is if I stop for maybe 15-20 minutes with the iWay on it seems to lose the satellites. The cursor will be flashing a ? and if I go to GPS status it normally shows no satellites.

At first I thought maybe I was just in a bad area but it happens even in the open.

It never regains the satellites. If I turn it off and back on everything is back.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Mine does the exact same thing. Works perfectly otherwise. I first thought it might be something to do with heat, but it isn't. I parked in the shade with the windows open and did the same thing. Shut it down, turn it back on and it works perfectly.

Poffey,

How old is yours? Mine is just a couple of months old. I did load the latest software update but I can't say for sure that it lost the signal before the update or not.

Bought mine in Nov. of 05. Have used it without a hitch since then. I have installed all of the latest updates on it, mapping and software. I did not notice this problem before the updates, however. I haven't taken the time to call Lowrance about it. It is only when it is not moving that it does it. I have just been shutting it down if it is going to be sitting there for a while.
