Garmin 250w does not get satellite signals?

PLEASE HELP.
MY GARMIN GPS IS NOT GETTING SATELLITE SIGNALS.

My map is an older version.

-----------
IF the maps are of older version,then


yes it can be very much possible that the gps device is not getting satellite signals due to older version of map.Update the gps device with its latest firmware updates for maps then check out.Also other possible reasons for this problems are are inbuilt antenna in the gps device is got weak there are external gps antenna available in the online sites like radio-shack and best-buy shops.but if the antenna is not the problem then it can be problem in the battery of the gps.the battery is got weak.the battery needs replacement in this case.But if the battery is also not the problem then check out if the no or low signal problem is only at one place or every where.If there are tall buildings and trees covering the gps or its in the packed room or car.Then it looses signals sometimes.In this case it has to be placed directly facing towards the open sky.Where the space is wide open then check out.It will start catching the signal.But as per your question if nothing helps then yes the older map version in the device is definitely one of the reason for no signal in the device.

THANK YOU.
