Below is the answer from Cat Eye's website. 9 times out of 10 the magnet has moved either up the spoke or the front wheel was put on with the magnet on the opposite side from the sensor. After that the sensor could of moved outboard a cm or 2 from the magnet. Then start with the battery tests as outlined below. Remember with a wireless model you have two batteries, one in the computer and one in the transmitter.

From Cat Eye's website http://knowledgebase.cateye.com/questions/67/How+do+I+get+my+computer+head+unit+to+register+a+signal+with+the+sensor%3F

How do I get my computer head unit to register a signal with the sensor?
If you computer head unit does not pick up a signal or does not seem to "communicate" with the sensor - check the following:

First, make sure the "AT" icon or "AUTO" is displayed on the screen (computer is in auto-timer mode, not manual stop/start mode).

Second, make sure the magnet is passing within 2-3 mm of the mark on the sensor (on the fork blade or chainstay, depending on model).

If neither help restore a consistent signal, then it could be either a low battery or a damaged wiring (Bracket/Sensor) kit.

Even if the LCD display is clear and bright, the battery may be too low to transmit a signal from the sensor to the computer head unit.

Next, with a fresh battery installed, try performing a manual restart operation to bring the LCD display back to life. Do this by either 1. pressing both buttons (Mode and Set on back) OR 2. all three buttons (Mode, Start/Stop, and small Set button on back) at once and then releasing all three OR 3. by pressing the AC (all-clear) button if your computer has one. This should bring the display back to life, and the unit can now be re-calibrated for your bike. See if consistent signal is re-established.

Finally, If that does not help, take a paper clip and bridge the 2 diagonally opposed metal contacts on the back of the computer head unit. If random information appears in the current speed display (upper portion of screen) while bridging the contacts, then the computer head unit is fine and the problem lies with the bracket/sensor kit. It may be stretched or damaged just enough to interrupt the signal transmission, even if not visibly so. If that is the case, please visit our small parts site to purchase the appropriate replacement sensor kit.

What is procedure to delete courses from the hand held devise? i have the SG4 Model. Thanks


Hello.

GPS receiver units are designed to translate signalsreceived from a satellite into recognizable graphic information using mappingsoftware. These systems are dependent on the installed software, butlike all computers they can experience problems up to and including unexpecteddeletion of the software. Because of this, many GPS systems have providedsolutions to some of the most common problems.
Operating System Deletion
If the hand-held unit does not display any functionality when activated,first try restarting the system. If the unit is a hand-held GPS, try removingand then re-inserting the batteries to reset the system. If the system still displaysno operating system, contact a professional for service. GPS software can alsobe bundled or purchased as part of a more comprehensive device, such as aniPhone or other smart phone. In this instance, it is possible that the softwarewas deleted from the system during a sync with a computer. Try re-syncing thedevice with the computer and ensuring that the GPS application has beenselected to be loaded onto the unit. If this does not solve the problem, thesoftware may be corrupt. Delete the program from the computer and download itonce again to the hard drive. Then, re-sync the newly downloaded application toyour device.Update Deletion
Occasionally, an error in the download or an error insyncing with a GPS hand-held can cause updates such as operating systemadvances, bug fixes and new map information to be deleted or corrupted. If thisshould happen, re-download the update information and sync it with the GPSunit. If update information comes in the form of an SD or other data card, thecard itself may be corrupted. Contact Thanks.

Distance to intersection or destination is off by 20-30 meters, how can I correct this?


Hi
connect your gps to your computer and run the garmin web updater program (free from garmin).
Make sure you have all the firmware updates as every now and again they readjust the satellite information to correct position errors.

I am not able to connect my bluetooth device with others n not able to share information with other via bluetooth


Hello

First ensure that your bluetooth is on and visible to everyone

When you want to send a file and scroll to "Send via Bluetooth" on your phone, your device list may come up empty. Sometimes this can be resolved by physically moving the devices closer together. The maximum distance between devices is 30 feet -- less if there is an obstacle blocking the signal.

check to see if the receiving device expects a security code before receiving transmissions. Some phones have security restrictions to prevent hacks.

Most Bluetooth-equipped devices come with a factory-set name. Change your device settings so that all your electronics have unique monikers. There are still some compatibility issues among Bluetooth devices, too. If you can send a file from your phone to your computer, odds are everything is working properly, but you have compatibility issues with the receiving device. Check the manufacturer's website for software updates for your phone, or visit a service center. But be careful: New phone software that updates the operating system can erase all your phone information.

When its receives a signal from a satellite it receives also information about satellite positions in the coming days. When you boarded the plane you must have turned off the GPS, so it could not keep track of your position. You land a long distance away and turn GPS on. It starts to search for the satellites according to the information stored in it that pertains to their positions over Dallas. It is unable to lock on the satellites. And then it was able to receive GPS signals from other satellites and all fell into place.

Yes it will happen again if you travel long distances in a short period of time. If you cannot keep it turned on during the trip, you should try to update satellite positions through Internet after you reset the time zone.
You should also be patient, and give it time to find its bearings.

Updating street information on my Nuvi 200


You can try to use a cable from a small camera with a mini USB connection. Your computer MIGHT recognize your GPS with this cable.

You can purchase newer maps in CD form, transfer the maps from your computer to an SD card and insert the card into your unit. You'll have to use Map Setup to choose the newer 2009 maps to display.

If either of these solutions solve your problem, please come back and let us know.
