Question about GPS

1 Answer

An Ademco system was installed in a house we bought and we do not know how old it is or what the model is but it is acting up and we do not have a user's manual. It is beeping until we press the off button and then beeping again at odd intervals. We need help to deprogram it and start over. It goes off in the middle of the night or wee hours of morning, it's beeping sometimes mid day when we get in from work it's driving us crazy!!

    are you receiving an "FS" in the upper left hand corner when it's beeping and do not have a land line? if so, the FS stands for Failure to Communicate to the emergency system. It's not connecting so it's trying to alert you. At least this is what the emergency contact number told me. they said the alarm to contact the alarm company. my problem is i don't want a land line but i do wan the beeping to stop in the wee hrs, too.

So I recently bought a GPS 84-3 And it can't even find my house? How do I get it to find specific houses and such

A GPS uses maps. If the map is too old or your house number has not found its way on the map how can the GPS find it. If the GPS can accept latitudes and longitudes as locations, g the Earth coordinates of your house and see if it can't find them.
Besides, the GPS for general use may be very different from the one used for military purposes.

How to install map to garmin nuvi 205w

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Just so you know:
Sorry, no free maps. I know I've tried. You either live with the old map or buy the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOUR Garmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website:
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

I just bought a refurbished Maestro 4250 and it will not turn on. It has been charging over night in the house. I can not get it to turn on with the car adaptor either. I pressed the reset button also. Any...

this model is know for this problem usaully caused by a bad usb port. you might get lucky though, because there not all bad.

if you have it plugged in, press and hold the power button for up to 15 seconds.

there are other thing you can do to see if yours has a usb problem, but unfortunately it will cost you money....i suggest if it doest turn on after what i suggested, take it back and get a different model..if you need a recommendation, let me know.

sadly, magellan will not recall these for this factory blunder

Ademco panel code was lost

1234 is the new master code, 4112 is the installer code to get into programming. If you defaulted the panel, all previous zone programming is lost as well as reporting methods and types for those zones. Basically it's set back to the way it came out of the box!

What type of panel is it? Do you have the manuals?

Need to unarm ademco vista 10se

enter the DURESS code. This will send an emergency police panic / Hold-Up signal to the central station, but will also remove the system from the alarm or armed state. Ask a friend or neighbor or relative who has an alarm for their "hold-up" or "panic" or "Duress" code (they all mean the same thing) since most are the same (or in reverse). But it would be unlawful for me to disclose that information in a public venue... Good luck!

Dual NavAtlas XNAV3500P

I had the same problem, check the fuse, also if the fuse is blown check the piece that fits into the device, you may have lost the little part that stops the fuse from blowing, it looks like a small ring on the end, stops it from shorting.

Does anyone know where I can purchase a NavAtlas 3550 cigarette lighter charger? I have tried 2 Universal adapters and none work! HELP!!
