Question about GPS

The device does not pick up current location. It defaults to a location 700km away from where I am. Also, the time is incorrect - how do I change the time.

I dont see a brand so i will give a genrealized answer.
By current location i assume the opening screen display reverts to a default location which is what location it was initially set at or is a default in the unit. Most GPS give you an option to set Your STATE and home location. this is usually in SETTINGS Menu. The time and data are also changable inthe same area using you country location and then the State and any daylight savings offset that might apply. These are sometimes, volatile as there is no power to keep these settings alive when in off mode only in standby mode. the button on front of unit. If the master on/off is selected your settings weill revert back to default so its wise to keep it well charged if you use it every day and want to maintain your preferred settings. Hope that helps you

Im trying to watch films from my laptop through my tv.The picture is fine but there is no sound???


You may need to change your sound device to the TV. You can find this in your Control Panel under "Sounds".

Here you will see what your speakers are currently set to. If you are using a HDMI cable, it should pick up your TV as a sound device. Right click it and set to default.

I want to change my passport


If you do not currently have the password you can reset the device to the default factory settings by pressing the reset button for determined period of time (usually 7 seconds fro Belkin). The default password should be blank, now you can log into the device using its IP address on a we browser and change the device password under its settings or the wireless password under wireless security.

Cannot get wireless connection with my iphone. says password is incorrect. yet i haven't changed it. how do i update to a new password. my current one is 6 digits. it looks like it requires 8 digits. i...


This is the default settings - if you have changed the login username and password use that.
Open your browser Internet Explorer is preferred as some router wont work correctly with other browsers, enter the IP address of your router default is normally (192.168.0.1) and click OK. • Enter your username (admin) and password (blank by default). Click OK to enter the web configuration page for the device. Now on the wireless setup section you should be able to change the wireless encryption / security password

The date that my Nuvi operates on is incorrect


Nuvi 200 - trying to reset the date using the method suggested by Kevin A (and in a cellar) and after two hours the Nuvi was still "locating satellites". Am I doing something wrong?!

My main problem, however, is that having loaded a copy of the latest European maps onto the card used in the device, when going through the "where to" routine I am asked to enter State/Province. Living in the UK this is a little difficult as there is no answer I can give that the unit will recognise! Any ideas?

I have a Tom Tom GPS and all of a sudden it says searching for satellite signal but never picks one up. Any suggestions?


To pinpoint your location, you need to get signals from at least 4 satellites. If you receive signals from less than 4 satellites or the signals are not strong enough, the Driving View stays grey and one of the following messages is shown in the bottom right corner of the Driving View:
  • Waiting for a valid GPS signal…
  • The GPS signal was lost … sec ago
Note: In previous versions of the TomTom application the message may vary.

If you see any of these messages, try the following:

Finding a GPS signal
In the following cases it can take up to 5 minutes to find your current position:
  • You use your TomTom device for the first time.
  • You haven't used your TomTom device for a longer time.
  • Your TomTom device has been relocated without using it (e.g. after travelling by plane or train).
If it takes longer than 5 minutes, make sure that you are in an open place without tall buildings or trees around you.
Once your TomTom device has located your current position, the Driving View is shown in full colour and shows your position on the map.
Tip: Most TomTom devices can use QuickGPSfix™ to locate your current position faster.

Clear View
Your TomTom device must be outdoors to locate your current position.
Try repositioning your device in your car; ideally, try to position it at the lowest possible point directly on the windscreen.
Some vehicles have a heat reflective shield embedded in the windscreen, which may prevent your device from locating your current position. If this is the case in your vehicle, use the TomTom External Antenna Kit (available as an accessory).
Tip: As a reference, place your device outside your parked car to see if it can find your current position.

Make sure battery is fully charged before use

Reset your device

When sync outlook to verizon Q phone


1. Create a new calendar item in Outlook/Exchange.
2. Sync
3. Update the calendar time on the handheld device.
4. The device is overwritten by Outlook/Exchange upon next sync as a
'conflict'

So, the new time of my appointment (valid and important) is not only never
updated in Outlook (I could almost live with this) but it is changed BACK to
the original time

This idea may work when a multitude of devices become erratic in function, display info on the screen that is incorrect or just won't work at all.

Lightning strikes near by (even with the device connected to an isolation strip) power interruptions and excessive heat can cause electronic equipment to mal function.

Do the following:

Make certain that the device has ADEQUATE VENTILATION!

Remove all dust from the grill in the back of the unit in the fan location.

Un plug the device for at least 24 hours and permit any stored current to drain from the unit.

Then restore current to the device.

If the problem persists, plug and unplug the unit several times, observing the change in the screen, until the info there changes to the proper display.

If this does not work, you need a tech assist.

Check to see if the watch is set up to get its time from another country. You may find that the fault started with a battery change or an all reset of the watch. The default location for many of these models is for North America or Asia. In some models the location is not active until it is set. In different parts of the world, they are using different time set protocols. There are some technical reasons for this.

Check the instructions about setting the time zone for the watch. Pay particular attention to the time zone setting, location setting, and that the feature is turned on in the first place.
