I am not entirely clear of what your problem is. But i assume you have set your home location, hece that is why the map always uses that reference to start from.
If it doesa not advance beyond that point when travelling to a new address i can only assume you have no satellite connection.
This is caused by a few things, but the main one is battery level. Make sure its fully charged.
second point is you do not have a clear sky view.
3rd point is you have blown the SIIRF chip lets hope its one of the two minor ones I mentioned

IPod Nano, white, 4gb, I want to delete existing podcasts from the library in my iPod. Podcasts show up on the iPod but not on my PC. The podcast category shows up on the PC but the PC podcast library...

I've had a similar problem in the past. The files on your iPod don't show up on your PC because your daughter put them there via another computer (possibly a Mac), and/or software other than iTunes. Your PC just can't detect them.

I used free software called Floola (, to manually go into the iPod directory and deleted the unwanted files. It's very easy to do. Hope this helps.

I can't get my beginning location set in product. Should I delete and re-register?

If your home location is set wrong you can delete it and then set it again. When it's deleted;
  • At your home press WHERE TO and then HOME
  • The satnav will tell you that there's no home location set and give you some options including USE CURRENT LOCATION.
  • Select this and your home location will be correctly set.
If you have a problem deleting your original home location you can
  1. Press TOOLS the spanner icon on the page with WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  2. Then press MY DATA followed by SET HOME LOCATION
  3. Again if you're at your home press USE CURRENT LOCATION
You should back up your favourites folder each time you add new favourites. Details of how to do this are at

Blackberry Pearl 8130 not showing missed calls

I had the same problem. Most likely your phone is low on memory.

1. To check how much memory you have, go to options-->status..

2. If your phone is low on memory, delete any old messages, if you use your internet browser on your phone, clear the browser history and cookies. Also, delete any programs/apps you are not using. This will free up a lot of memory.

3. You can also run memory cleaner- Go to: options-->security options-->enable cleaning and check show on home screen.. Then click the icon to run it from the home screen.
4. Try removing the phone's battery for 10 minutes, putting it back in, and restarting the phone.
