Have not used my Garmin since January 2011. Sitting on shelf. Plugged in to my car charger and would not turn on. Would this mean it needs charged?


After three months, I'm sure the internal battery needs to be charged. But even so, it should work when plugged into the car charger. The first thing you should do is check that the charger cord is connected properly at both ends. Mine has a green LED on the plug. If yours does, make sure that light goes on. Try jiggling the connectors at each end of the power cord. If it still doesn't work, the next thing to try is replacing the power cord. (Maybe you can borrow a power cord from a friend). If the power cord isn't the problem, I'm afraid the problem is in the Garmin itself. Good luck.

GarminNUVI 265wt gps gp gn How would enable my gps traffic


You need to subscribe to the Traffic , also you need to have the traffic cord to receive traffic reports. Other than that it should work.

You can go to the www.MyGarmin.com site and subscribe, be advised that if you had a trail version of the Traffic report in will end in 30 days from the registraion date of your garmin.

Hi!

Incredibly, the AC charger for your GPS is incredibly inexpensive.

I found a link where you can purchase them for a very good price!

The hole of +- joint for external connection cord was broken


I have found my friend who is very familiar in electionic and small appliances to help me. I can fix it too, but unfortunately I do not have any soldering tools and parts here. I will bring it to Hong Kong and let my friend to fix it. It's very cheap if we find anyone to fix it in China where Magellan is assembled . Thanks.

Hi fire1961,

Downloading data from my FURUNO GP-30 gave me no problems. But it took me long time to figure out why I coudn't upload waypoints and routes to the GP-30 via the serial port in my ThinkPad T30.

I tried nearly everything tested the cable, tested a lot of different software and even wrote a little c-program to communicate with the serial port. I also tried a serial-to-usb converter with no results. Then I stumbled over this RS232 Tutorial. According to this - serial ports are not just serial port but can be divided into three general categories:

The types of driver ICs used in serial ports can be divided into three general categories:

* Drivers which require plus (+) and minus (-) voltage power supplies such as the 1488 series of interface integrated circuits. (Most desktop and tower PCs use this type of driver.)
* Low power drivers which require one +5 volt power supply. This type of driver has an internal charge pump for voltage conversion. (Many industrial microprocessor controls use this type of driver.)
* Low voltage (3.3 v) and low power drivers which meet the EIA-562 Standard. (Used on notebooks and laptops.)

Then I installed the waypoint upload software to my ten years old Compaq Presario and suddenly I could upload routes and waypoints but only via the on board serial port. The serial-to-usb converter didn't still work.

So if people experience no result trying to upload data to these old GP-30's from their notebooks and laptops. Then I think it could be a matter of these Low voltage ports not are able to provide the FURUNO device with enough voltage. See the above RS232 Tutorial.

Best Regards

ICOM GP-360ML GPS Receiver


I had this problem about a year ago. If all you need is the firmware update they will update it at no charge and they told me if it needs repairs they most likely will not have the parts becaus it is a discontinued model. They also said they did checked it and found no other problems. Sent it in to Icom:
Icom America
2380 116th Ave NE
Bellevue WA 98004
They did the firmware update and sent it back to me free of charge. It works great now and my chart cards work great.

Delphi NA10000 Losses Power, Turns OFF


I had the same problem and was able to fix it by finding a replacement cigarette lighter power cord with the same voltage and polarity. Input to cord is 12Volts. Output to GPS is 5Volts, with a positive center post.

PS I need an instruction book and disks (or disk copies) if you know where I can get them. Delphi no longer has them.
