Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Took me on a 2 lane route for 100 miles instead of freeway!

Recently planned 100 mile trip. There were 2 possible ways to go. One way was all freeway, the other was all windy, 2 lane slow roads. On the "fastest" setting, it directed me to take the windy 2 lane road. Also, several time, told me to "turn right" when there was not right turn to make, only a left. I had this mounted on the windshield, so it flunked the first test I gave it. Ruined the weekend.

These things are miles from perfect. However, if you knew of the freeway route, you should have taken it. Remember, a PND is only useful when you don't know where you are and can often be confusing if you're using it to direct you to place that you know.

Triton 400 sometimes street maps move anywhere from 100 ft either way to 1/8 mile away from route and makes it show you are off road or in wrong lane.


This problem is most caused by two possible errors. One the maps were not prepared correctly.

Two your navigation settings are wrong. Please reset the datum to WGS84 and see if this helsp.

Mrs. lok is planning a 600-mile trip. her car has an 18-gallon gas tank and gets 29 miles per gallon.will 1 tank full of gas be enough for the trip


No, she will be able to make the trip with only 1 tank of gas.

Solution:
She has an 18 gallon gas tank.
1 gallon = 29 miles

The 18 gallons / tank multiplied by the 29 miles / gallon
= 522 miles / tank

She will run out of gas in 522 miles.

Oil light goes on...had a dry stick 4 1/2 qts put in. no oil on ground. after oil change light went on at 70 miles.. on 15 secs then off for 5 miles then on again 15 secs--- off 4 miles--off 3 miles- off 2...


if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.

Transmission sticking after hwy trips over 15 miles


Change and flush your Transmission fluid. Sounds like your governor is sticking! I think battery would come on if you overcharge battery too, that will definitely detroy your battery, in that case regulator will be bad. Rev your engine and see if cahrge to battery is > 14 Volts DC.....Sorry I dont own Domestic JUNK anymore, so I dont know if your alternator has an internal or still exteranl regulator. 1990, probably internal... I will reconsider domestic once they have improved quality,, they've been saying they have for years, but it's all BS! They still ****... hope I helped out.
