I assume that you mean when you ask it to PLOT THE ROUTE to your destination, it is sending you the LONG WAY not the most direct way.
GPS algorithms for determining the path that should take you to your destination, usually leave a lot to be desired. If you can live without the turn-for-turn directions, you may find that your trips end up being more efficient, and can save you gas and time.

Hi, On a newer Kenworth truck has built in xm radio. Every thing was fine till , near as I can tell, I was waxed the top of the cab. Did not disturb the antenna in anyway, however now when I travel north I...


The signal comes from low in the Southern horizon, so if you have a trailer it is blocking the antenna. You would be best off to buy a special trucker antenna that mounts on your mirror and gets it a little bit higher and away from the trailer blocking the signal from the south when you're driving North. Okay? good Luck.

After we updated nuvi 50 it does not recognize south and North Carolina,Florida,Alabama or Georgia why?


Most likely because the newest maps are too large to fit on your device now. If you go to settings maps then my maps it will probably say lower 49 NW (north west) or NE (North East). Just buy a 4 or 8gb micro SD Memory card, stick it in the unit and run the update again but tell the program to change the coverage.

How does a compass always point to due north?


"Due North," by definition, is the direction towards the earth's north pole; or, visually at night, towards Polaris, the north star. Therefore, compasses generally do NOT point towards due North but, rather, point towards "magnetic north," as the other responder described, which is a variably located at some distance from True North, depending upon where the north-locating compass is situated on our planet. In most circumstances magnetic North is close enough so that people are willing to accept it as North in general terms. However, depending on your location, and upon seasonal changes caused by Earth's wobbling rotation (called precession) true North can be many degrees off from magnetic (from your compass's) North. In those cases true North must be determined using declination charts, which will tell you how many degrees to add or subtract on you compass in order to determine true North by the Magnetic North your compass is pointing to. For example, if magnetic North is 10 degrees west of true North at your compass's location (that is, your compass is actually pointing 10 degrees to the "left" of North), then you would correct by considering the +10-degree bearing point on your compass dial as True North--and, likewise, add 10 degrees to any bearing line you happen to determine using your compass. You have one other way of finding True North, which is celestially, by sighting towards the Pole star, aka Polaris, aka the North Star...that is, providing that the sky is UNcloudy and unsunny enough for the star to be visible. Of course, that only works for those located in the morthern hemisphere. Those south of the equator have a "south pole" star but it is not as accurate as Polaris in the northern hemisphere.

Was going north and the map said i was going south


Are you sure you were heading north at that particular time?
Gps show your direction at that moment and time. Just because your road is going north does not mean that the road is always going north, sometimes they change directions to go around obstacles that were in the way of the road design, IE mountain, town, river.
The sign for the highway may say your are heading north when in actuality you are heading south to go around something.

The gps will not take into consideration the curve of the road, it just tells you the direction you are heading. Hope this helps.

MY GARMIN NUVI 760 says north on a road when it should show south


Sounds like the map needs an update if it doesn't show roads that actually exist.

I can send you a powerpoint presentation that explains it in a little more detail. To really learn how to read latitude and longitude you should pick up a copy of “Chapman’s Piloting and Seamanship.”

The earth is divided into parallels of latitude and meridians of longitude, also known as lines of position.

clip_image002.jpg

Latitude is measured north and south of the equator, with the equator represented as 0 degrees, and the poles being represented as 90 degrees North or South. Latitude lines are paralel to the equator. For example, if I was at the equator I would be at 0 degrees. If I traveled exactly 60 nautical miles to the north, I would be at 1 degree North, and if I traveled another 60 miles I would be at 2 degrees north. Your GPS display will preface the Latitude measurement with an “N” for positions North of the equator and an “S” for positions south of the equator.

Longitude measures your position east or west from the Prime Meridian, which is a line represented as 0 degrees that bisects the earth from north to south and passes through Greenwich England. Halfway around the earth at the International Dateline Longitude is 180 degrees. Measuring Longitude is a little more complicated because the lines are not parallel and requires an accurate clock (your GPS) to compare time at your location relative to the time in Greenwich England. Your GPS display will preface the Longitude measurement with a “W” for positions west of Greenwich and an “E” for positions east of Greenwich.

To make more accurate measurements each degree is divided into 60 minutes. Because the lines are parallel, 1 minute of latitude is equal to 1 nautical mile. Each minute can be further divided into 60 seconds. Each second is roughly equivalent to a distance of 100’ Instead of seconds, the default setting on your Garmin breaks the minute down into tenths, hundredths, and thousandths for meven more precise measurements. Because they are not parallel, lines of Longitude are measured the same way, but the distances vary depending on how far north or south of the equator.

To find out where you are with a GPS, you need a map that shows lines of latitude and longitude on it. The lines will be labeled on the map or along the borders of the map. Most nautical charts show the latitude measurements along the right the left border of the map. Longitude measuremnts will be shown along the top and bottom edges.

Xerox phaser 8400


The first obvious question is, "Does it have blue ink/wax?" Is it displaying any errors? Have you tried the Xerox support site? They have a fantastic utility that can connect to your printer and diagnose many problems. Here's the URL for the utility: http://www.phasersmart.com/ They also have a wealth of information in their knowledge base. Here's the URL for the support page for the Phaser 8400: http://www.office.xerox.com/printers/color-printers/phaser-8400/sprt-enus.html Did anything happen before the blue quit printing? Have you tried running a cleaning cycle?
