Heres what to do:

- Connect to computer using USB cable
- Flip up antenna and hit reset button.
- The unit should power up.
- Then put unit on wall charge to get a full charge.

That should do it if not call 1-800 800 1020.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 205 Problems aquiring stellite

usually gps are automatically sensing the signal, with clear view without and sometime even with minimal obstruction like trees windows etc. there is no other way your gps could not acquire signal unles it is having a problem .

all gps thesedays have 10-20 meter accuracy, it is only a receiver, this model particularly have the highest signal.

in other words i suggest you reset your unit from the bottom and see if there is any improvement, replace the unit

cheers

Garmin offer new maps, the majority in different formats such as online downloads, pre-loaded SD cards, or on DVD.

However, these are pretty costly for all they are worth. For the same price as a map, you could easily buy a brand new device with full EU maps.

St. Gabriel grub control - Purchased 20 lb. bag


In terms of grubworm control, 'milky spore' products are bacterium meant to create a long-term soil-borne epidemics amoung grubs in the soil. Milky spore very likely will not kill existing populations that're eating at turf roots & thus, doing damage.
But milky spore is an environmentally-conscious product, and certainly a wise long-term investment for those who've put a lot of investment in their lawns.

In leiu of milky spore, I recommend any product containing Dylox for active infestations.
Milky spore may be applied in that same season in an attempt to start that longer-term, human & pet-safe grumworm contagion.

It is perfectly normal to see small numbers of grubs in the soil, in both turf & landscape. In small numbers, grubs are generally harmless. The concern mounts when their numbers are higher.

This is how to check for actively feeding grubs:
In turf areas that are turning brown, get on your hands & knees and take the turf into both hands, and pull.
If the turf readily comes up as if it's carpet, you'll likely see the "lawn shrimp" (haha) underneath.
In a 12" x 12" section, if you see more than 2 grubs, it's time to take action.

Answers:
1) No. After applying Dylox & watering in per instructions, wait approx 1 week to 10 days, then peel back some of those sod areas again.
If it's working, the grubs will have slowly turned from an ugly grey to a light beige, and shrunken somewhat.

2) No. Moisture on grass at time of application doesn't matter. What matters is that you irrigate thoroughly AFTER application.

3) Actually, it is to your advantage if adjacent soil areas aren't treated with milky spore. If ALL grubs are killed, then there will be no carriers to continue the bacterial contagion. Even if your neighbors are grub-free, keep in mind that Japanese, June beetles, masked chafer, etc will drop eggs into the turf season after season. (There's nothing you can do about that.) And these eggs will eventually metamophecize into grubs. If you have milky spore in the soil, they shouldn't mature to the point to which they'll feed.

4) Products containing Dylox are labelled to kill grubs of all species of beetle. At about the time you're seeing June beetles swarming your back porch light, they're likely laying eggs in the turf. Most species of grubworm potentially can do damage 2X year:
JUST before the adults emerge, and about a month to six weeks after the maximum height of adult population.
Here in s. Ohio, late September thru first ground freeze tends to be historically the worst peroid for grubs. But some years, mid to late spring damage can be found, too.

MTU to low on xbox 360. Anybody else seen this?


I felt really stupid when I spent a couple hours trying to fix this. XBox Live is down today, June 16, 2009 until late tonight or early tommorow. No one's XBox Live connection is working right now.
