Question about Lowrance Iway 500c GPS Receiver

1 Answer

SCREEN ORIENTATION FLIPPING

After the unit has been on for a while it sometimes flips between the screen orientations.(north up/travel direction up/3-D). When it does this the screen may go blank for a split second before the next view appears. the unit does not lose location/tracking when this happens. I have been unable to duplicate this using a power converter in the house - it only happens when driving. I have made trips of several hundred miles without it happening and made trips of less than 100 miles with it happening continually.

I have recalibrated the screen to no avail.

    I wish there was a fix because mine has been doing this for a while. Drives me nuts. Sometimes I just reboot it and that works. Sometimes it doesn't work.

    Yesterday, I left it on in the house and when it heated up, it started doing it. So it is probably a temperature related problem. I use mine on my motorcycle also and come to think about it, it never does it on the bike. Air blowing on it keeps it cool.

    I too talked to lowrance and they said for only $250.00 you will get a brand new one. I already paid them $600.00+ for the 500c. Im not giving them any more money.

I have the same problem, it started after updating. Spoke with Lowrance tech and said it is a hard drive problem.
I had to purchase a 600 for $250 because they gave me a discount for having paid for the update and the unit
is malfunctioning. They refused to consider that it may be a software problem. The screen loses calibration and
the unit goes balistic with the orientation. Have had the unit for 4 years with no problem until updates were installed

Rotate screen back to normal


Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures. Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options. For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.

Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop. Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time. Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation. Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel. Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column. When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate. Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference. Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window. Click "OK" to finish.

Looking for the garmin you speak to you dont have to type in the address you say it.also has a flip screen


Hello,

None of the Garmin units will have flip screens, unless your referring to Dual Orientation. The nuvi 3790 and 2360 will have dual orientation screens they also do speech recognition so you will be able to speak commands instead of manually inputting them.

Hope this helps!

My dell inspiron 6400 screen goes upside down


the screen orientation can be adjusted, there should be a button combination similiar to CTRL+ALT+Arrow key of which direction you want to flip it to. or then you have to look on the bottom right corner of the screen for display adapter settings, there should be a orientation setting there if not, then right click on your desktop and select properties, then settings, then advanced. there go over all the pages and look for the orientation setting. That last advise if for windows xp.

You can press the Orientation Button located in the right bottom corner of screen. It is marked with two arrows following each other in a circle.

Moreover, you can set as default the screen orientation you desire in Tablet Properties.

Also, remove the battery for 10 seconds and reinsert. This will enable auto orienting of screen.
