SOURCE: GPS 60 unit shows "Searching the Sky" status message all the time

The "New Location" fix above brought my GPS 60 back to full operation. I did reload the GPS software from Garmin but the recovery depended on well charged batteries and as above: turn the unit on
press MENU button
scroll to "New Location"
wait 10 minutes for the GPS to recover.

SOURCE: Magellan Maestro 3100 stuck on

If you followed the procedure closely, you now have an SD card with your backup on it. The backup consists of two folders: BACKUP, and USBTRANS. Insert the backup SD card in your PC's reader slot and open a "file explorer" aka "Windows Explorer", not to be confused with "Internet Explorer". You will use Windows Explorer to click and drag the USBRANS folder to the Maestro.

With the Maestro 3100 connected to the PC, a couple of Explorer folders will open and you can see the file structure for the GPS in 1, and in the other one a separate file structure for the blank SD card needed for the update. Look at the file structure for the GPS and you should see a handful of folders including "SYS".

  • Start the upgrade program, following the procedures.
  • Click the NEXT button at the bottom of the procedures screen.
  • Immediately copy the backed up USBTRANS folder (and all contents) to the SYS folder on the GPS.
  • The update should now find the Maestro 3100 and proceed with the update.

SUMMARY: copy USBTRANS (it should contain 1 file: UNIT.DAT)
  • from your BACKUP SD card (not the one in the Maestro)
  • to your Maestro 3100's SYS folder.

SOURCE: Garmin zumo 550 map update problem

  1. Make a backup of your Zumo by copying all the file to your computer.
  2. Using your PC and MapSource select all the maps then send them to a SD memory card need 2Gig or bigger card.
  3. Try to rename this file to gmapprom.img and replace the same named file in your zumo. (I haven't tried this personally, so if it fails, just replace this with your backup and all will be as it was.)
  4. If this fails, you can use the SD memory card in your zumo and it will use this map instead, but it will take longer to boot your zumo.

My Golf Buddy GPS PT4 got wet. Removed battery; have in bag of rice. Still water under screen. Should I order replacement battery? How long should GPS stay in rice? Is there another solution? Help.


That is your bet. The rice trick. Id keep it in there for 36 hours. It will either work or not work after that period. If there is still water in there then might have to order a new unit. As for the battery I would have put that in rice too. Ya never can be too safe when it comes to water damage. If the battery did get damaged during the water incident then a new battery would likely need to be ordered.

But you are doing the right thing with the rice. Goodluck.

Golf buddy tour I had to take out the battery to stop my golf buddy. When I put back in the battery it would not start


It seems that the switch/relay that would not allow you to shut down the cart is now stuck in the off position and not allowing the batteries to feed the motor.

Check it out.

I tried the little buddy heater in my golf cart and as soon as I move the cart the heater goes out what can I do to stop this


This is not going to work in your golf cart. This is propane based heater with a pilot light. It will go out if you drive because of the wind blowing on it. I also believe all Mr. Heaters have a tip hazard turn off. I know the two I have do. If you really want heat in your cart I would recommend an extra battery, an inverter and a porcelain electric heater. Could be made to work very nicely in your cart.
