SOURCE: why does my gps nextar show a red light and not turn on

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

SOURCE: showed originally 226,335 miles. overnite when

Most newer trucks and suv's have a digital odometer. the miles odometer and trip odometer are combinded. By pressing the little button that patrudes from the instument cluster will show you the orignal 226,335 miles. When you press and hold the button while the T__86.6 is displayed will reset the trip odometer. Some people use the trip odometer to monitor times between oil changes and tire rotations.

SOURCE: I have a Garmin etrex

You need to make sure your GPS unit and Google maps are using the same map datum.
In your user manual:
Page 44, Setup Options, Units, Position Format: I suggest setting to:
hddd.ddddd as this is the digital format and easier to read

In Google Maps, right click - Drop Latitude/Longitude marker and this should show the co-ordinates in digital degrees. Alternatively, you can hit the SEND button in GoogleMaps, and it will send the marked location to the GPS via the Garmin website. You may have to install the Garmin plug-in into your browser first, but it's well worth it.

If this solves your problem, please come back and rate our solution, thank you.

Testimonial: "As I found out later, I had the wrong settings on .mm.sss not hddd.ddddd so .33 in minute/secs is .55 in decimal (more or less). You are right."

On turning my 6200 on the gps location is showing i am in york which is 107 miles from were i actually am ?? why is this and can i fix it

Try this resetting procedure:

1) Switch the unit OFF with that switch on the button (the one that needs the pen).
2) Now hold the power button on the top with your finger, and switch that switch on the bottom back to ON while keeping your finger held down on that button.
3) Something roughly called the Aragorn Boot Loader will appear and will count down from 5.
4) Release your finger off the power button on the top before it reaches 0 or you will have to start again.

This should have performed a hard reset, and you should be asked to calibrate the touchscreen.

When you have the screen showing up the route to your destination, if you touch the box down in the left hand corner showing the estimated arrival time the screen should switch to show your current speed, max speed, compass etc.........

It show red light.

If you wanto refill the cratridge,even after refill you'll need to reset your printer page count to 0.Download the firmware from here
run the software and this will reset the page count to 0. Samsung printers generally do not support a refilled cartridge and thus the red light.But resetting the page count to 0 makes the printer detect the cartridge as an intoductory one.

My trany doesnt chge gears 1990 acura ledgend atm

I just ran into the same problem. Today my mechanic showed me 2 computers, one under the rug under the glove box on the floor. Lift rug and turn key on, not to turn car on but to just turn radio on, and see if a red light flashes on this computer. It should flash once when you turn the key on. If it flsahes more than that one time, count the number of times it flashes and then light will stop flashing and start flashing again. Count it thru a few of those times to make sure you have the number of times it flashes right. If it flashes more than once, this is called a code. Having a code means there is something wrong with car, your mechanic should be able to tell you what the code means. Mine was flashing 2X, so the code was 2. My mechanic pulled the corresponding fuse for this code, and held the fuse out for 10 seconds, and then put it back in, this reset the computer to no codes. He told me to drivew it home and then shut car off and then turn key on again and see again if any code was flashing. When I got home, no code was flashing on this computer. Good news, resetting it by pulling the fuse fixed whatever that computer was doing.

Secondly, he checked another computer under my pass. seat, to do this you need to turn key on, (do not start car), and you have to view this from the BACK seat, it should flash a red light once and then no flashing. Well, mine flashed 15X, so was a code 15. He pulled the corresponding fuse, held it out for 10 sec. and put fuse back in. It then showed no flashing except for the one time it is supposed to flash when you turn key on. He told me to check it once home, I did, and the 15 flashes (code 15) is back and what this means is I need a speed control sensor. And he said it definitely does whack out the tranny. So all I need is a speed control sensor, not a transmission replacement! Try this and see if yours gives you codes and if so, have mechanic pull the correct fuses and hold them out for 10 seconds and then put back in. Then drive your car for awhile, and recheck the computer modules again for any flashing lights (codes.) You may just need a speed control sensor!!
