01 tahoe. started ran great drove 18 miles to gas station shut vehicle off after pumping gas etc approx 10 min later won't start won't even crank. all accessory lights bell etc working all gauges turn...


I used to own an '02 Tahoe.
Have you checked the oil? Is your dip stick bone dry? I've only had this happen to me on one vehicle in the past and the engine was out of oil and my engine had seized. Hopefully it isn't that.

Side note: Have you noticed that most Chevy Tahoes on the road look like they are winking at you? Seems like everyone ALWAYS had one fog/running light out under a headlight. I laugh when I see one coming my way.. I say, that's got to be a Chevy. Something is wrong with their electrical system to cause such a widespread failure.

I want to know how to avoid highway 407 in my gps it showing always but i dont like to take 407 so that's why i want to know


When you plan an itinerary, and the GPS gives the 407, look for an alternative. You will be able to use the avoid (roads, toll roads, etc.) feature. My TomTom allows me to avoid specific places.

5 MPH DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAR AND TOMTOM GO 530


The TomTom is being tracked by upto 11 satellites, therefore the speed on your TomTom is correct. Generally a speedo in a car is around 5-10% inacurate.

Does not show max speed allowed it is 6mths old


I have found that the maximum speed is not known for all roads so only the speed is displayed.

Where the max speed is known for a particular road it should always work for that road. If not then there could a problem with the GPS.

Garmin summit hc seems to be off by more than 300 feet


First of all make sure your etrex is not set up to follow roads (if it has that facility). Maps are not always accurate particularly edges of lakes and forest boundaries. If your etrex can only see a few satellites then accuracy will be degraded. Make sure your body is not shielding the view of the satellites by holding the unit away from you. The accuracy of any GPS is affected by the relative position of the satellites with respect to each other. If they appear (at your location) to be in a straight line then your GPS cannot perform the trigonometrical calculations to determine your position with any accuracy. In GPS speak this is called DOP - Dilution Of Precision and can result in variable accuracy from +/-5m at best to +/-30m or worse.

Floating in space even on interstate


As I always suggest, your maps might be off if you haven't updated since you bought the device, or haven't updated in quite some time. Run the device through TomTom Home to update your maps, and it should provide the fix

Direction of scroll while navigating


The Garmin units have three ways to view the map - 3D, 2D North Up or 2D Track Up. I believe the Tom Toms have just 2D or 3D. If you are asking if the Tom Toms can Track Up (which is what it sounds like you are asking), I believe the answer is no.
