Goto Nokia.com and see if there are any software upgrades for you phone. If it is needed, install Nokia PC Suite as well if there are any needed. Purchase a USB cable as well for your cell phone if you don't have one already.

To check if its a device problem connect the GPS module to a different computer, phone, or PDA.

Check that all connections are fine and that there is no oxide on the connectors.

Why am I being told that my signal to my tv is weak and that must come to you for assistance.


Are you on cable or Arial If on Arial you may have to turn the head one way or the other to get the program to come in also weather conditions have a lot to do with this.Weather effects the cable reception as well. If the TV works most of the time but not other times it could be the weather. or a weak booster on your areal

Weak wifi reception on my coby 4331 tablet


The solution for this problem depends on how you are using the device. It depends mainly on how thick your walls are and where you placed your wi-fi router. If you can't change the location of your router, I suggest you to get a new, more powerful one. A cheaper solution would be to move, if possible, the router. The thickness and number of walls between the device and the router decrease the signal's strength considerably. You could also install a repeater, though you'll need to place it where the signal is at medium strength, in order to boost it. The repeater should be of the same manufacturer of your router, as it will have 100% compatibility.

Fm reception for weak stations poor. reception on car radio fine.


If there is no FM Antenna connection you can try to move the power cord to different positions and see if you get a better signal. If not then move the unit closer to a window or try various locations that might have better reception.

No signal or satellis


The device has to find at least four GPS satellites to be able to calculate your location on the map.

If the GPS signal is weak or your device is only able to see three satellites or fewer, the location icon is shown in gray, the Driving View is shown in gray, or one of the following messages can be shown:

  • Waiting for a valid GPS signal
  • Poor GPS signal...
  • The GPS signal was lost x seconds ago

Keep in mind that even if your device is working correctly, it may take a couple of minutes for it to work out your location when you switch it on.

I was driving home today and our Nuvi1200 said it had a low battery. I plugged it in. Not 15 minutes later it just shut off, leaving me stranded in a city that I had no clue where I was. Not able to turn...


The connectors are alway a weak point on these devices, you need to check the lead is ok and that the power is on on your cigarette lighter socket. Also worth checking the fuse in it if not.
Murphys law is things will always fail at the worst possible time.
When you are home check that the device can be powered by your computer or a charger.
Then you will know if its the lead or device.

Roadmate 2000 has suddently started giving me crazy directions. If I followed them, the routes would take me 30 miles out of my way.


  • Check first the signal. Make sure the signal is not weak. Because if the signal is weak normally thats what will happen.

Make sure that at its location it can have access to see the satellites.

It is also possible that its front end receiver is starting to become weak in performance due to some failing parts.
