TomTom 910 freeze, long turn on


It is possible that the map data(base) and/or the navigation software is corrupted.
Have you tried running a (fix) disk utility against your (internal or external) storage disk for the GPS ?
For instance, connect the GPS to your PC (Windows), and select (highlight) the (internal) "disk" on the GPS device. Under File - Properties, go to the Tools (tab) and run the "Error-Checking" option.
This utility may fix your data error.
If not, consider doing a restore (from backup) of your GPS disk storage.

My garmin GPS says GPS off how do I turn GPS on


Look in the menus. There should be a setting to turn GPS on or off. if your GPS has a remote antenna, and it's not connected, make sure it is, that would cause the GPS to 'turn off' the GPS radio.

I cant find my gps on my samsung omnia


I have a Samsung Omnia. If you go into settings you can turn on AGPS (assisted GPS) and download some addition software that helps gps. GPS is automatic but you can turn it off or allow windows mobile to manage it which is advisable. You cannot automatically see the GPS but you can buy or get third party software to see when GPS is working.

GPS gate works to turn gps on/off manual but this is just one software.

I have included a link to show where these settings are and if you want to use GPS gate. Note: I am not affiliate with GPS gate at all.

Make sure that the bike's electrical connection to the GPS unit is actualy not having power once you turn the key off in the bike. This GPS turns on with external power. It is inherent in to its design.

In the case were you cannot have the bike's power source to the GPS turn off with the key, see if you can wire a small in-line switch in series with the GPS unit so that you have an external power switch. This should be easy to do.

The models I have used from Garmin have their own power switch. You should be able to use its power switch to turn it off.
