I heard that the new iPhone 5 does not include the Google Maps application, but instead uses Apple's new version? Is this correct?

Yes it is. Apple decided to replace one of its most useful applications, Google Maps with its own version, Apple Maps. Compared to Google Maps, Apple maps display much less information like certain street names, street directions, and subway stops. Moreover, Apple Maps does not have the street view feature that Google Maps has. It should be noted that Apple Maps is a brand new application and will certainly change for the better in time.

Bought a new Garmin Nuvi 40LMgive wrong direction from day one. do i need to take it back or is there some way i can correct it?

Get your money back and spend it on a good road map. I use the latest Philips navigator UK map, it never fails and keeps my old brain functioning.

I have a friend who uses a satellite navigation system. Having met up at a place, I knew he asked me how to get to somewhere local, I said go back the way you came and at the big church, turn left - I didn't see any church he said, I was following Sat Nav - that is the point without sat nav we become aware of what is around us so we learn our way, even in strange places, by looking at the sun we can work out whether we need to go east west, etc..

Get your money back and buy a map!

I went in and removed all my pictures from the unit and all languages except english. Now my map is gone, poi screen is blank and when I try to set a destination it only shows the interstate no city...

Check if your map is selected.
  • Press TOOLS the spanner icon on the WHERE TO and VIEW MAP page
  • Press SETTINGS the spanner icon (Or LOCALE on some models, the blue icon)
  • Press MAPS
  • Press MAP INFO on the bottom centre of the screen
Your map name should be there with a tick beside it. If the tick is not there press the map name and it will appear. This may solve the problem.

If the map is not there you'll need to download it again. If you've got a garmin account log into myGarmin. If not you'll need to register your satnav first. To register it
  • Connect the satnav to your computer and go to
  • Select your country from the dropdown list and click "Register your garmin device".
  • Follow the prompts.
  • You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe. You'll need them anytime you need to update your maps or solve problems in the future.
Once you've registered you'll be able to log into myGarmin. When you're logged in click on the myMaps tab. There you'll see the name of the map on your satnav. Under the map name you should see a link in small blue writing DETAILS.
Click on DETAILS and it should give you an option to download the map again. Download it to your computer or direct to the satnav and it should solve the problem. If you download to the computer use MAPINSTALL, which will be installed into a GARMIN folder in your programs list, to install the map to your satnav.

My sat nav shows opposite direction map

Binatones run igo. I would recommend finding the latest software and trying an update - then see if the problem still occurs. There is also a setting in the map view for making the map change to the direction of travel - this may be causing an issue.
"austech" is a good place to start.
