You can find kits to bypass the "needs the parking brake on" issue - seems to me I saw one on EBAY - my installer told me about them but they can't legally put them in when they install the unit.

On google plus it allows you to share your location with whom ever you choose, so my husband and I share our location with each other, but for some reason his is always wrong, and it always shows him in...


Hi Brenda
You need an App that will give you your current GPS coordinates.
Install an App Like MotionX or similar. Check the Latitude & Longitude or Better still the UTM Easting & Northing (same thing but UTM is the new digital coordinates & is easier)
Compare one phone coordinates with the other phone.
they should be almost identical if your in same location.
Otherwise check your phone SETTINGS for GPS & how it's set up.
Even a standard Garmin GPS tracker (which I use for prospecting) can be set fro the wrong side of the world. Usually its set for WGS 84 or 94 & UTM. I have seen people set up for the northern hemisphere when they are in the southern hemisphere.
Also, you said that your husbands settings never change. Well... it's GPS either turned off or broken.
I also use my "Find My Phone" App to check on the wife.... and she's on her way home... so GoodLuck
Cheers
Trevor

Poor choice of Brands.... but thats another story.

My Gamin Nuvi can't unlock maps


Use a Garmin 1450


The Garmin Nuvi 1450 can be used while driving or walking.

While driving, use the Nuvi 1450 to create a route to your destination and get step-by-step directions, to hear the names of upcoming streets, to tell you when to change lanes and to find out the speed limits on unfamiliar streets.


As a pedestrian, you can have the Nuvi 1450 create a route for you that uses a mixture of walking and public transportation, such as the subway or bus system, if you have purchased cityXplorer maps for that area.


Tap "Where to?" to set up a route. The "Where to?" icon is a large magnifying glass.


Tap "Addresses." The available categories are address, points of interest, go home, recently found, favorites and intersections.


Input the name of the state or county, if it is out of town.

Then tap "Spell city." Spell out the name of the city using the pop up keyboard.

Press "Done."


Enter the address number and press "Done."

Then enter the street name and press "Done."


The "Go" screen opens automatically.

Tap the green "Go" button. The Nuvi 1450 will now calculate a route to the address.

Follow the voice prompts and map highlight to your destination.


Navigate Using Coordinates


Tap "Where to?" and then tap "Coordinates."

Tap the coordinate you want to adjust/input a new coordinate.


Tap "Format" to choose the right coordinate format for the map you are using.


Enter the coordinates. Tap "Next."


Tap the green "Go" button to calculate a route.


Use the Map Page


Navigate to your destination by following the voice prompts, highlighted route on the map and directions located at the top of the map screen.
Tap the "turn" icon located in the upper left corner of the screen to see the next turn. It may have a turning or straight arrow and the number of miles until the turn. Tap the bar across the top with the next direction listed on it to see a list of all directions.

Tap the plus or minus signs on the right side of the screen to zoom in or out.


Press the spinning arrow in the lower left corner of the screen to return to the main menu.

Tap the "car" icon traveling along the highlighted route to enter the "Where Am I?" screen and get your exact location, coordinates and nearby emergency services.


Hope this helps

Can I set the TomTom to "go to" a longitude/latitude location?


Yes.

First you'll want to set your unit to accept coordinates. From the main menu, tap Change Preference, then select "Set Units" and select a Latitude and Longitude format in the "Coordinate display" screen, and then tap Done.

To navigate to a location using latitude and longitude coordinates, follow the steps below:
  1. From the Main menu, tap Navigate to...
  2. Tap Latitude Longitude.
  3. Enter the coordinates and tap OK.

I'm unable to get a picture or sound due to a "key" lock appears in the lower left hand corner of the screen. It will not allow me to unlock it.


Hello

Your TV is locked. Do the following to unlock it.

Apex TVs use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for many models is 6688. Other sets may not have one, or may have a default code of 1225 instead of an override code.

  1. To use the override code:
  2. Hit the MENU key to get to the menus.
  3. Go down to the SYSTEM menu and hit the right arrow on the remote control.
  4. Once in the SYSTEM menu, go to PARENTAL GUIDE. It will ask for your code.
  5. Enter the override code listed above. From here, you can turn on and off different rating restrictions, as well as set a new code.
No matter what the V-chip code is set to, the override code will still work. If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desiredOK.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 205W and have saved a number of places as favourites. However, when I want to share the location with friends by giving them the map coordinates of these places I cannot find how to...


To view the coordinates of a saved location on your nuvi

  1. Touch Tools (wrench icon)
  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch System
  4. Turn ON the GPS Simulator
  5. Touch OK
  6. Hold Back to return to the main menu
  7. Touch Where To?
  8. Touch Favorites
  9. Select a favorite location
  10. Touch Show Map
  11. Touch Set Location
  12. Hold Back to return to the main menu
  13. Touch Tools1
  14. Select Where Am I
Here you will see the coordinates for the saved location.
1. For nuvi 200 series units that do not have the Where Am I feature, skip the above steps 13-14. The coordinates can be found by pressing the vehicle icon on the View Map page.

Entering coordinates


When you press on your Where to? graphic a menu will come up that will give you a number of choices including
Address, Go Home, Points Of Interest, and 3 others. There should be an arrow point down in the lower right corner of the screen. When you press that the screen will scroll down a page and you should then see the Coordinates Globe. Press this and the screen should change to the Enter Coordinates screen. This will allow you to enter two sets of coordinates for your destination.

Setting coordinates while driving . . .


You can buy a kit to override the "parking brake required to be on" problem. I think I saw one on Ebay. Pioneer creates this situation so you can't "play" with the unit while you should be paying attention to driving - commercial installers won't install the kit for the same liability reasons.
