Hi, Ive just bought a new to me Trimble FM750 and I can't get green signal, only two bars, yellow..

It's a 2014 screen, v7.35 on WAAS (no glonass), its seeing 10 satellites or 13 if set to use uncorrected satellites. Obviously today was very overcast, dunno if that makes much difference. Any ideas?

Thanks

10 to 13 satellites should be fine. Are you out side or in a shed? Mine sometimes does the same usually give it five minutes then open or create a field and when you return to the work screen it sorts itself out if you are stuck I have always found the main dealer helpful can't just remembered their name

Go into your GNSS settings and check that satelittes 123, 126 and 136 are enabled.
You may need a firmware update to get 136.

I'm not sure how to do that, on 'Satellite Status' none of those are are listed, I'll ring up vantage tomorrow and see about an update. Thanks
