Im going to assume the satellites are not locked on.

look up at the top right corner of the map screen, and there should be atleast 4 green bars..if not, the satellites have not locked on to your position yet and wil show the last location you were at when i lost the satellites.

take the unit out side in clear view of the open sky and turn it on, then hold the power button for ten seconds. after it turns off, hold the power button till it starts. let it sit outside for up to 30 minutes to aquire the satellites.

if that fails, go HERE and download and install the latest update. just follow the install direction and it should fix it.

After update, tried to restore data on my device, mac crashes and now my device can locate the map. It's on the device, but it doesn't load.


hello iff you follow the steps here you will be sorted 1. Make a complete Explorer, not Home, backup of your unit's contents. Ensure hidden files/folders are showing.

2. Go to the location of your downloaded map. you'll find it in this location:
C:\Documents and Settings\yourname\My Documents \ TomTom\HOME\Downloads\complete\ map\
your_map_name

(Substitute your specific map name every time you see your_map_name in these instructions.

It's a cab (compressed) file.

3. Within the compressed cab file, if you look at the contents, you should see a your_map_name.zip file, perhaps a couple of .gif files, a your_map_name.toc file and, importantly, an activation_map.cab file.

4. Use Winrar and extract the contents of the your_map_name.zip file into the current your_map_name map folder on your unit. If you don't have a folder called your_map_name, then create one using Explorer.

5. Then, extract the file in the activation.cab file into the same your_map_name map folder on your unit. You don't need to worry about the other files.

6. Make another Explorer backup of the unit's contents to a different folder on your computer.

7. Disconnect the unit PROPERLY from the computer using the Safely Disconnect icon in your notification area of your desktop.

You are done!

goodluck

How do I change my current location?


If you're wanting an app to update your current location, make sure when you load the maps application that it is loading your actual current location.
Also, check your settings under Settings->General->Location Services and make sure you have location services turned on.

Gps won,t move from last location


When you put in a new location how are you entering it? If you are using the "Where to?" menu then you will need to click on the "Map" button instead of GO when you find the point you are looking for, may it be an address or a Point of Interest. This will show the location on the map. If you want that to be your current location you must have the GPS turned off. Then on some units you will Have the option to set as your current location.

I hope this was some help.
Cheers

Garmin Nuvi 300 - SD problem


I believe your current location is somewhere in UK/Ireland, which means the Nuvi's last/current satellite fix is not anywhere within Spain/Portugal. If you need to use the maps features of that country where you're not physically there with the Nuvi, the Nuvi must be in Simulation mode first. Fold down the antenna to switch off GPS (not device) and enter Simulation mode.

Then, scroll the map screen (combinations of zooming out, browsing, and zooming in to the spot) until you find the location you want to simulate (it must be within the maps coverage). Then, tap 'Set Loc' at the bottom of the screen. At this point, as far as the Nuvi is concerned, this is the GPS location where you are at. Then you may proceed with Address Search, etc. using the other map's database.

Resetting Home


I'm not sure I understand the question. When you take the unit outside and turn it on, does it show you in Tampa, or Decatur? If it still shows you in Tampa check the satellite status in the tools menu, you may not be acquiring your current location.

If you're talking about the home location that is saved into your GPS as a waypoint, go into your favorite places list and delete the place named "home" then go to the location you want to save as your new home and press "where to" and then "home". Since there is no home saved, the GPS will ask if you want to save your current location as home. That should do it for you.

Garmin nuvi 250 mapsource


Verify that you have the correct basemap for the country that you are in. There are two maps inside a new Garmin. The basemap which shows all the major highways and mapsource which shows all the street. If you don't have the correct basemap try changing 'Navigation' Advoidance to avoid highways and Toll Roads.
