    Mr. Smith,
    The 1st solution, following, didn't work. The background is still white in the city (should be a yellowish-orange color). The streets disappear from the display above the #10 magnification level also. This may be a hard one to solve, may have to call Cobra, about 185 miles North of here.

    Hi

    Thanks for using FixYa. Turn off the Auto Zoom option from the menu, go to MAP- > more -> map options. Geographic area may not be fully mapped, drive to a main road. If the map shows the road, the system is working properly, but the area is not fully mapped.

    If this doesn't help try and reset the GPS device by Menu -> Settings-> User Preferences -> Reset Factory Defaults.

    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

    Thanks

Make sure the unit is not in a location that is being blocked. The best place to have it is mounted on the windshield.

Go to the page that says GPS INFO. If you dont have any green bars then your unit is not connecting to any satelites. If this is the case just move the unit to the windshield until it connects.

If the weather is terrible it may not connect for a while.

How to use a spotting scope for shooting?


A Spotting Scope is an essential element for hunters and shooters. This small device is technically a special type of telescope used for hunting, magnifying and watching an image or object more clearly. The methods use a shooting spotting scope does not involve much difficulty.

Here is the method:


Comfortable position

For a perfect shooting experience, you need a comfortable position. If your comfortable position is unable to help you fix the targeted area, you are likely to miss the hit or glance.

Attachment of the spotting scope with the tripod

Having an accurate view of the targeted area is important. Due to this reason, shooters need to position the spotting scope with a tripod so that they can see the targeted area very clearly and accurately.

Adjustment of the magnification level

The lens and magnification level should be adjusted so that you can get the appropriate view of the targeted area.

View of the targeted area

After fixing the targeted area, you have to adjust the magnification level with the lens to view the targeted area. At the time of using scopes, you will find some problems that magnification will present. If you fix the magnification and focus firstly, you may not find the target. You have to first view the target, and you have to adjust magnification level as required. Here, you should bear in mind you will have to go with the slow magnification process because the fast magnification process cannot give the accurate target.

Adjustment of the focus
You have to know how to reset the focus because you will need to do it again and again. It may sometimes harm your eyes with the magnification level being set to high.
Focusing on target is important for shooting and the spotting scope is also important for this purpose. For acquiring a specific target, it is important to use magnification level with the spotting scope.

You should follow all the methods of using explained above. There is no alternative way to learning how to use a spotting scope for shooting except these methods.

I have a Celestron powerseeker 127 Eq telescope viewing issues


With the setup you have, you are attempting a magnification of x 750, which is way beyond the capabilities of your scope. A realistic limit to usable magnification is x 250, or about what you will get if you take the barlow off and just use the 4mm lens.The 127mm aperture on that scope does not gather enough light to do more.

Even that depends on good seeing, that is, clear air and no light pollution. It is a great shame that scopes are marketed with outlandish claims as to magnification. You certainly will see a magnification of x 750 in daylight, when there is lots of light, but they don't tell you that trick.

I have a 200 mm scope, with a practical limiting magnification of x 400, and I find that almost impossible to use. The viewing object is hard to find and keep centred in the eyepiece, it wobbles around, it soon disappears due to the rotation of the heavens, and is dim and blurry. I keep to magnifications of about x 250 max.

There are no updated maps or software available for that model. So, I need to upgrade to the 5000 gpsm for just a little over $200.00, plus I need to send in the old one. Will receive the new one in the mail 8-10 days.
