I have found that the maximum speed is not known for all roads so only the speed is displayed.

Where the max speed is known for a particular road it should always work for that road. If not then there could a problem with the GPS.

Garmin receives sat signal ok will give directions - basically everything operates normally with the exception that the actual map on the screen does not show anything.

Go to your settings and check what options have been selected. You may have to revert to the default settings and then tweak your preferences.

Tom.tom does not warn you the speed limit

Maybe you've forgot to set up this option...
In SETTINGS > STATUS BAR PREFERENCES at the SPEED (that shows your actual speed) you have to have displayed the SPEED LIMIT also. If this last one doesn't appear it means it is not available for the road you are on.
Check if your map(s) are updated and your software too.

Speed display inaccurate

Yes and no, Yes if you know enough to go into the operating system and recalculate the the timing of it and no if you don't. Also remember that it could be your speedometer that is out as well. They are allowed a variance of +- 5mph. Hope this helps

Garmin 1300; Can't get speed limit of street/road but do get speed that I a going. Why? "" "817-992-6143" "Robert L Warner"

I had a nuvi 205 for a while and it showed some of the speed limits. had a little sign that would pop up above the current speed. I "upgraded" to the 1300 and was surprised to see that feature missing. Actually, kinda mad, I really liked that function

I have a Garmin c330. It will not pick up a signal from anywhere. I will drive down the road to try and pick one up and it still doesn't. It will ask me if I am in Kansas I say no and it says acquiring...

The satellite chip ( SIIRF) is possible burned out
It starts always at the last place it was programmed or the default place of issue.
It may be quite expensive to fix as it requires a new motherboard. Not usually covered by warranty as they can be damaged by overcharging aqnd connecting to DC when starting engine.

Navan will not switch on

It sounds o me as though the battery is dead or flat - if you can get hold of a usb - mini usb cable and a usb mains charger from somebody (if you do have one yourself) get them plug it it to the mains and leave to charge for at least 12 (preferably 24 hours) - it should be working fine then. (if you do not have a usb mains adapter - plug it into a pc - but leave the pc on to charge it)

The battery is probably run down so much that it doesn't have enough juice to power up - this happens usually if you haven't used it for a while because the battery is being used up to remember where the last GPS position was.

If charging still fails to fx it - then the unit needs a new battery - contactnavman support in this case.

Destination download

this is a flaw with TomTom. The way I do it is this, after you input the address, touch, details, then, browse as text, scroll down to the very last instuction and touch that. This will open a window showing an arrow pointing which side of the road the final destination is on. Good luck.
If this helps you plz rate it fixya. Thank you kindly.
