Question about Garmin GPS

1 Answer

The unit appears to be inaccurate. While driving I am 50 to 100 yards past an intersection before the icon on the screen shows I have reached the intersection. I have updated the software and even did a unit reset but the problem persists.

1) change output pinning. This is an averaging method used for slow speeds. Disable / Enable as applicable.
2) change your datum. Typically, one would use WGS84. Other older yet popular datums include NAD27 and NAD 83.

How do I turn the voice mail alert icon on to appear on the screen?

with all the new updates it doesn't appear at the top of the screen now as an independent icon, it shows as a missed call & a voice mail in notifications, you can acces it direct from there or when u go into the phone section if you flick left to right past speed dial there is a devoted section for voice mails, that shows each 1 individually & who left it, just click on the 1 you want to play, listen & delete or keep, you no longer have to dial the voice mail.

Gateway NV5378u lap top, brand new battery installed and status says 100% charged. When I unplug the computer it shuts off as if there is no battery. Could the new battery be defective?

There are a few things to check. The LED lights can tell you a lot. This will tell you more about the battery:
  1. On the taskbar, double-click the power cord icon or battery icon to open the Power Meter dialog box. Note: If the power cord icon or battery icon does not appear on the taskbar, click the show hidden icons button.
  2. Press Fn+STATUS to view the power status box, which opens in the upper-left corner of the screen. The power status box shows the current power source, the battery charge level, and the power management mode.
  3. Look at the battery charge indicator (if applicable).
    • LED green - Battery is fully charged.
    • LED orange - Battery is charging.
    • LED blinking red - Battery charge is very low.
    • LED solid red - Battery is malfunctioning. Note: This LED only lights up when the notebook is connected to AC power.
  4. Press the battery meter button on the battery. The battery meter lights indicate the percentage of battery charge remaining.
  5. Wait for a Low Battery warning message to appear.
If your battery charge indicator displays what looks like an inaccurate charge, you may need to recalibrate the battery.

To recalibrate the battery as mentioned, try this:
  1. Connect the AC adapter and then turn on the notebook.
  2. As soon as it starts and you see a startup screen, press the F2 key.
  3. In the BIOS Setup utility, use the TAB key to select the Advanced menu.
  4. On the Advanced menu, select Battery Auto Learning, and then press the SPACEBAR to select Enabled.
  5. Use the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu. On the Exit menu select Exit Saving Changes, and then press ENTER.
  6. At the Setup Confirmation prompt, select Yes, and then press ENTER.
  7. The battery recalibration process begins and a screen opens showing you the progress.
  8. When the recalibration has finished, and the message "Press [Esc] key to exit" appears, press Esc. The battery charge indicator now displays an accurate battery charge.

Hope this helps!!

Unit downloaded fine ad the did the back up of the drive fine.started the updates and the firmware stopped and then the drive locked up how to access the drive again after reboot nothing shows G: F:

  1. To restore the Western Digital icon to the drive letter for the external drive in "My Computer".
  2. Please go to the Western Digital Download Library and download the WD Logo Icon which has a file name of External when you download it.
  3. Save the file to your desktop and use a file compression software like Winzip to extract the files inside the .zip file to your desktop. When it's unzipped, it will create a folder named "ExternalIcon" on your desktop.
  4. Double-click on the ExternalIcon folder. It will open a Windows Explorer showing a folder named, Autorun, and a file named, Autorun.inf.Double-click on My Computer and it will open.
  5. Double-click on the driver letter that represents the Western Digital drive you want the icon on and it will open.
  6. Highlight the Autorun folder and the Autorun.inf file. Right-click on them, and left-click on Cut when the Menu appears.
  7. Right-click in the open space of the drive that you opened in the new Explorer window, and then left-click on Paste.
  8. Close both Explorer windows, safely remove the external hard drive by using the Safely Remove icon in the system tray, shut down the computer, and unplug the external drive from the computer.
  9. After you reboot into Windows, reconnect the external drive to the computer again, and the Western Digital Icon should now be displayed with the drive letter in My Computer.

If these steps do not correct the problem, you will need to re-format your External Hard Drive ***WARNING*** FORMATTING A HARD DRIVE WILL ERASE, YOU WILL LOSE, ALL DATA

How to find area between 2 curves

The TI84Plus has a Shade( function which allows you to represent the area you want to calculate.
The simplest syntax of the command is

Shade( lower_function, upper_function, Xleft, Xright, pattern, patern_resol) where Xleft is the left limit, Xright is the right limit, pattern is the shading pattern and pattern_resol is the resolution of the shading. Only the area where lower_function is less than upper_function is shaded. Unfortunately this command does give the value of the shaded area.

To find the area between two curves
  1. Draw the curves
  2. Find the left intersection point using [2nd][CALC][5:intersect]. Sorry I will not describe the procedure. The X value of the intersection point is stored in Ans memory.
  3. Press [2nd][QUIT] to go to main calculator screen.
  4. Store the Ans result in say A: [2nd][Ans][STO->][ALPHA] A
  5. Return to the graph by pressing [GRAPH].
  6. Find a second intersection point. Result is stored in Ans memory.
  7. Press [2nd][Quit] to return to main calculator screen
  8. Press [2nd][Ans][STO->][ALPHA] B to store the X value of the second intersection point in B.
  9. Use the CATALOG to paste the fnInt( command to calculate the integral : [2nd][CATALOG][[APLHA] F and scroll to select fnInt( and press [ENTER]
  10. To complete the command you need the identifiers Y1 and Y2.. You access the identifiers Y1 and Y2 by pressing [VARS][Y-VARS][1:Function][1:Y1] and [VARS][Y-VARS][1:Function][2:Y2]
  11. The command should appear as fnInt( Y2-Y1,A,B)
  12. Press [ENTER] to obtain your value.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.
