Question about GPS

1 Answer

I'm looking for a portable gps that can accurately mark where I'm standing. Later, I'd like to be able to plug the unit into a pc and determine the closest address to the point I set. Is this realistic? Any suggestions?

GPS problem IN FREELANDER


Is it indash unit or portable? if indash then you need to locate the GPS Antenna and make sure it is plugged in and not obstructed by any metal.
If portable then try holding down the reset button on the back for ten seconds, If this doesn't help the unit will need servicing.

My garmin nuvi 205 will only display a black screen with the word garmin on it. I have powercycled multiple times but that is all it will do


It may either need a screen reset, or a cpu reset.
To reset the screen, Push the upper left hand corner of the screen (under the pwer slide-switch), while you toggle the power switch on AND HOLD THAT SPOT FOR MORE THAN 15 seconds, or until you see a display that says to Calibrate the Screen.
If you get there, there will be a black dot to touch (with the back of a pen) accurately...in different locations of the screen. This determines how it will react to your touches when operating.
(I did not know about this, and just used my finger to touch the dots. Well I could not see other pages later, and I thought the unit is broken).
Then shut it off, and reboot. The Garmin comes on with black background...loads the software...then the warning notice-Agree- to press.
If you cannot get either of these, your unit is not loading its software.
If your unit has a "Reset Button on the bottom of the unit" . Do not use sharp pointed objects.
If no Reset Button... lastly, Slide and HOLD On/Off switch to the left FOR 8-10 seconds.
Wait a bit, and try switching on again. All this is per their web site User Manual for the 200series.
Good luck.

Screen comes up with updating bluetooth firmware & stays at 45%.


Your unit if locatiing a cell phone close by, could be yours or a friends in the car, on standing near you.

I would disable Bluetooth first, to do that go to Tools...Settings.... Bluetooth.... under Bluetooth disable then re-do your Bluetooth connection

Tools....Settings... Bluetooth .. under Connection you can remove the connection there also

If you don't have a Bluetooth connection you want to use just disable it

I recommend you to reset it . Resetting should solve this problem .

Here is how to reset your Maestro :

1:Locate the button marked "Reset" on the left, right or bottom of the unit.
2:Using a thin object, such as a paper clip, depress the button for two to three seconds. The unit should reset.
3:If the unit does not reset, immediately press the button again and hold it for up to 10 seconds.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE !

Every time i turn on my lowrance 520c it says gps module not resp


I had the same problem. Sent my entire unit back to Lowrance, but they said it was fine. One year later, I find out that I did not receive or have the correct parts to hook up the GPS unit. I needed the NMEA 2000 T connector and terminator plugs. Look at your manual and hook it up the way the manual says. It will require a NMEA 2000 T and at least one 60 ohm terminator plug. Seems the GPS module sends back some kind of signal that if not absorbed by this thing will mess up your unit. Mine works since I got it hooked up correctly. HD

My garmin Street Pilot just went dead on me.


I got back into my vehicle today to go get my mom at the airport. I plugged the unit In & It worked. I suspect that It is the battery. After I shut off the engine I got the message that says do you want to still operate on battery power. I clicked ok but it said low battery. So now I have it charging by using my portable air compressor. So hopefully It doesn't die on me for at least another few years or if It does then It's time to upgrade to the Nuvii

Thanks for the people that replied to my question.
