Well, I had a similar problem once, I managed to get the unit to relaod the map data using my repair dvd but I cannot guarantee this will work in your case. if your unit still has the basic operating system intact, you shoudl be able to boot it with the firmware update in the SD card and it will load, however, someone else told me they were not able to do this becasue the unit would never try to boot from the SD card. it was basically a brick.

One solution is to visit C&C wireless and pay over $100 for a map update or even send them your unit for even more $. see http://www.finedrive-acc.com/shop.cart?action=ITEM&prod_id=F400-08CP

The other solution was to send it to Fine Digital but they closed their doors in the US so they no longer support us customers. Because of this I made a DVD with map data I purchased from them before they closed and I added much better instructions; this DVD updates the firmware in the unit and loads the last map data issued to the SD card. you would need a PC with a DVD drive and SD card reader to use it. you can find these DVDs on ebay for $18 which basically covers my costs only.

Why does my Nextar gps system takes foprever to load when turn on


If it is running Win CE then it is VERY old. The GPS is probably failing to see the satelites. Probably time to replace it.

My gps need install windows ce but install because I connect the cable to the computer but the computer gives unknown device message


If you GPS is at the point of needing windows CE installed then it is in a bad way. This is not done in the normal way on the Mitac Mio. It is setup using and SD cardspecific keys assigned by mitac to perform only a minimum of functions for its GPS hardware.LikeRESET +POWER then selecting different options specific to the GPS

Then getting maps on it is also different from a straight install. I suggest you contact MIO and have them reinstall Win CE and the maps for you before you compromise it totally so that it cannot be undone

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Amcor 3990 GPS navigation device screen backwards


If your screen is actually installed backwards take it back and exchange it for new one, but if the screen is not actually installed backwards then go into the settings screen on the gps unit and find the orientation section, this will change the display to something a little more readable to you. And as a side note some of these things look like they should be straight up and down but they actually designed to work sideways, gives you a wider view and the manufacturer a little more screen room to put more information onto the screen.

Touch screen locked unable to unlock it.


Give it back to the owner. Owners don't forget PIN and they also know the secret location where the unit will unlock itself without the PIN.

I have a Magellan Maestro 4250 and touch screen not responding


Yes. The hard reset is the little pinhole on the left. Just use a pin and poke it. It should bring everything back to factory default and all saved info, addresses, routes etc. will be deleted.
