First, if you have a flip-up antenna (Nuvi 3xx & 6xx series), make sure it is flipped up. If that doesn't solve the issue, try the following:

Make sure your unit is not in "SIMULATOR MODE".

Press the wrench (settings) icon at the main menu, then the Gear (system) icon. Then look for the option that says SIMULATOR. Make sure that function says OFF. With it ON, you can simulate a driving route but your GPS will not be working in real time mode.
