I live in Canada and travel to NY and California frequently for business.
When landing in LA, I turn on the GPS and it can often take between 30-45 mintues to acquire a satellite and display local info.

Any solutions, shortcuts?

Thanks.

Maybe the Yanks are running a blocker so the scuds can't find the mark ? Laughing
It shouldn't take that long to lock onto satellites after going to a new area from the last place you used it. Mine will normally take a minute or so extra when I move 1000 klms between shutdown and start up.
A call to Garmin may get the right answer, as they are good with support.

What happens when you go back to Canada? How long it takes to lock?

Where at LAX do you turn the GPS on. You will not get a signal until you are outside from the buildings. I have been there and something bug the Garmin when in and close to the buildings. I started driving out of the airport and real soon got the signals. Sitting only takes longer.
