Question about Garmin GPS

1 Answer

My garmin is stuck to the windshield & i can not get it off. i park in the garage & i would say it is in the garage half of the day. i can't get it off & neither could my neighbor or son. i can remember driving along and the garmin would fall off while i was using it. never thought i would not be able to get it off. when i park, often i will cover the Garmin with something hoping it will not be noticed & someone break in & steal it. I am not usually out late but it seems cars are often broken into to get the GPS. can you me how to handle this problem? Thanks...

Try this..first off..remove the GPS from the holder..then use a small screw driver of knife to lift an edge of the suction cup up and away from the wind shield..then try spraying a window cleaner like windex around the suction cup while prying the edge up with that kinife or screwdriver...once the windex gets behind the should slide a bit and break the suction seal...Hope that helps you..

STOP THIEVES by reprogramming your "home" into your GPS

Breaking news in the ongoing battle against crime involves your GPS and your garage door opener. Many thieves are now breaking into cars and stealing both the GPS and the garage door remote. Their motive: turn on the GPS and push the "home" feature. The GPS will then lead the thief to your home where the garage door opener will provide access to your garage and if it is attached, to your home.

THE FIX: Reprogram your GPS so that "HOME" takes you to a restaurant near your home or to a police station near your home. At least that way, the thief will not know where you live.

Many cars are broken into these days because owners are not aware of how desperate many thieves have become. The prize is often the GPS which sells on the street for $100.00 or more. Do not leave your GPS in sight when you park your car, do not use a windshield mount which leaves a tell-tale ring on your windshield, and do not use a plastic disk stuck to your dash [all signals to a thief that there is a GPS hidden somewhere in the vehicle]. The best idea is to keep your GPS and your garage door remote both locked up in your trunk whenever you park your car. Regards, Joe

My garmin nuvi 1450 repeatedly says "acquiring satellites". How do I fix this?

Take it into an open area such as a parking lot or field, it will soon acquire the satellites and they will stay acquire unless you go into a parking garage.

I have an 04 Saturn Ion. The windshield washer solution is not coming out of nozzle, (which are clear), the wipers work, and the washer solution in reservoir is not frozen. I checked the fuses and they are...

Where the hose connects to the reservoir that is the location of the pump. You will have to remove the washer fluid resivoir in order to replace the pump. Remove the hose and blow through it to make sure the orifice is not just clogged with wax.

How and where do you mount the Garmin nuvi 1300 GPS

I use the suction cup holder and place it to the lower middle right of windshield, I find it easy to see and not in the way of parking the car when you need to see the front of car when turning or parking.... I put it lower so the wires dont hang all over the place

2000 Saturn LS, windshield wipers park in the middle of the windshield. How can I fix this?

The wipers are parking in the middle because the timing mechanism is off. Once they start doing this it seems to continue to happen so the 1st suggestion is to replace the wiper motor. If U don't want to spend the $ right now it's a pretty easy fix to reset the timing. Park the wipers & remove the wiper arms. Then remove the plastic cowling that covers the wiper motor & the motor assembly. Turn the wiper assembly over without turning the motor. Remove the nut on the arm of the motor. Repostion the arm pointing away from the closet wiper directly inline with the short arm. reassemble.
