Re: gps wont start

The ipaq requires a GPRS connection to download and refresh its GPS files every 2 days. Check the GPS symbol at the bottom right corner of the screen. It has to be blue. If it is grey, the GPS files need to be refreshed. Hp recommends MapAsia and it works, though the landmarks are not correct. The roads are ok. I do not know about diginav.

IPAQ 4700 hard resetting on its own.

I also own an ipaq 4700 and experienced the same problem. Even after reloading the OS I continued to have this problem. I did buy it refurbished but I fear this may be a common hardware problem. From my research it would appear the battery is the most likely culprit, I have not tried replacing mine but it may be worth a shot, if nothing else you have an extra battery which means less time at the charger :D

Tom Tom navagation files out of place

Try putting the files like this:
In My Device/iPAQ File Store/iPAQ GPS, put the folder with your country name (in my case it says Australia), the "Navigator" folder and the "GPS" and "Map ID" files.
In My Device/My Documents/Tom Tom you should have a file thats called something like "Australia-3bc66a12" (will be different for other countries), and another called "TTToday" and any POI files you've created.
See how that goes. Otherwise, you may be able to reinstall TomTom software from the original disk if you have it. Any map upgrades you've bought will need to be reloaded from TomTom Home

Ipaq H3630 how to do a hard reset

Compaq iPAQ h3630

Resetthe iPAQ H3000 and Clear Memory

Resetting the iPAQ

Ifyour iPAQ H3000 responds slowly, stops responding as expected, or“freezes,” try resetting it. A reset causes the iPAQ H3000 to restartand re-adjust memory allocation. Unsaved data in open windows may belost. Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button for about twoseconds.

NOTE:Do not turn off your iPAQ as it must remain on in order to reset.


Clearing memory

Ifyou want to clear all data from your iPAQ H3000 and return it to thefactory settings, you should clear the memory.
Clearingmemory deletes all data and restores the iPAQ H3000 to its defaultsettings. Programs installed at the factory remain, while data you havecreated and programs you have installed are erased.

1.Using the stylus, slide open the On/Off door on the base of the iPAQH3000.


2.Slide the On /Off switch to the Off position using the stylus. Waitabout one minute, then slide the switch to the On position.


3. Close the Battery On/Off doorusing the stylus.


:Use CF Backup/Restore or ActiveSync to keep a backup of your iPAQ dataso that if you need to clear memory, you can restore the data on youriPAQ.

HP ipaq with navtec gps software and sd card fails

Ok, nice job Robert,

I'm posting your solution here to remove it from the unsolved problems list.

Solution by Robert:
This problem was finally resolved as a corrupted map file on the SD memory card in the hp ipaq 5550. Solution was to reformat the memory card using fat32 memory format. I used a SD memory card slot on my laptop and right click the drive letter and select format to format the memory card. After that, I reloaded map files to the memory card and all was OK. Note that previously I had loaded map files on the memory card successfully but that was not good enough. A reformat of the memory card was apparently needed.
I had also previously tried a hard full reset of the ipaq by pressing and holding the lower two buttons (calendar and itask) while holding in the reset button with the stylus for 5 seconds and resynced my contacts and reloaded the gps software, but this was to no avail. Try the re-format.

Ipaq h5455 wont stop wibrating and i cant reset it

try a hard reset - it will restore to the original state. it removes all files and programs in the memory files in a storage card wont be affected.

Just hold down the calendar and today buttons, these are the two outer buttons on the lower left and lower right, then using a stylus press and hold for at least ten seconds the soft reset button this is located on the lower right edge of the unit. The screen should reset and the iPAQ will boot up again.

Ringtone change

The ipaq is not playing large files. It only makes a small beep sound if the wav file is big. I am using a wav file of less than 800 k and it works.

Do you have sufficient memory on your iPAQ? Check your memory settings, also check running programs tab, maybe you have too many programs still running in the background causing the latency. Try a soft reset (stops all running programs in the background) or end task on them, then see if it still lags.
