You have to download "TRAX CENTRAL" from the Customer Support Section on the Uniden Website.
Make sure you download the "How To" PDF's as well.

Once you have Trax Central operating,you can then connect your Unit via the USB cable,and Update all your files,etc.

You MUST read the Operating Manuals.

So Far there are no Updates from Uniden,but this may help you get your Unit going.

If this doens't work then take it back to the store you got it at. Uniden recommends that you return it if it is still under warrenty

If all else fails here is the contact information for Uniden: http://www.unidendirect.com/contact.cfm

Best of luck.

Uniden Trax 5000 - unable to use Trax Central


Hi,
Had the same problem with Trax Central software. Ended up successfully using Naviextras Toolbox application. https://www.naviextras.com/shop/portal/downloads
Still don't know what, if any, extras on the Trax Central software. I tried to get it to run on 3 XP boxes and 2 Windows 7 boxes. Gave up in disgust. Good one Uniden.

Can I manually enter gps coordinates into uniden trax_430 gps


The seller LIED! here is the review where it says this feature was disbled.
Both the Trax 436 and 430 have a 4.3 inch widescreen making it easier to see the navigation display than with smaller 3.5 inch units. As there is only a single button (on/off) on the device, all data entry through pressing the touchscreen display. There is predictive text to help with some entry fields. One of the interesting design features alluded to is Safety Mode which disables the touch screen above 10km/h to ensure the driver has their attention on the road ahead.

A second of the interesting design features noted is the simple and advanced navigation interface modes. It makes a lot of sense to disable some more advanced functions, such as navigation to a GPS coordinate, in order to make a simpler, less cluttered menu structure for the average user. Incorporating text-to-speech capability, the Trax units’ voice navigation instructions include street names making it simpler to check one is on track without having to glance away from the road to the GPS unit display.

heres the link for more info

Uniden trax 430 frozen


I have had a similiar problem with my Trax 430. The screen freezes at the system shut down stage. I have to plug it into the computer via the USB cable. It then recognizes the computer and attempts to do an USB update. Then just unplug it. It should work but not a practical solution when you are driving about.
