When I press on for example, a way home, it shows me the right place I am, but it does not show me the new roads/highways to get there, only the old ones.

The problem is that your maps are out of date. This can happen pretty quickly in growing areas. The problem is that it is quite expensive to purchase new maps for your device and mostly cheaper to purchase a newer device on sale. If you are handy and don't mind risking your device you can search on the web and find ways to put free software that uses free maps from sources like openstreetmap.org

Best Regards

Your map software may need to be updated but beware as the map software may be a few years out of sync with the current area . My area has 3 new roads and a extension that are 2 yrs old and my Nuvi that i bought 3 months ago and 4 updates later still do not show these roads yet.

I want to know how to avoid highway 407 in my gps it showing always but i dont like to take 407 so that's why i want to know


When you plan an itinerary, and the GPS gives the 407, look for an alternative. You will be able to use the avoid (roads, toll roads, etc.) feature. My TomTom allows me to avoid specific places.

My garmin 205 keeps on loosing signal and it shows the location on the screen were ther is no roads


when the Garmin shows you are driving in the middle of a field, it is because the software doesn't know there is a road there. New roads seem to take two years before they are updated to the units software disks. I bought 2009 software _specifically_ because two of the highways I use had been extended, but the new disk didn't fix the problem! It is kind of funny where the image on screen shows you are in the middle of a field and the car image does a shimmy left and right!! :>)

Change the time


Depending on the software of the Norstar it is connected to, you would log in to the key system by using Feature **23646 and then follow it up with the administration password.

If this is a pre 1.0 system, i.e DR5.1 do the following. If not, go to the bottom and click on the link and find the manual for the system your phone is connected to. Generally the system coordinator guide will have what you are looking for.
Setting the date
Begin with the display showing

l.Sys speed dial
1. Press [NEXT] (second key from the top on right for a 7310) twice.
2. The display shows 3.Time and date.
3. Press [SHOW] (first key on the top on the right for a 7310)
The display shows the time, for example, Time 01:00.

- All times and dates must be entered using numerals. For
example, February would be entered as “2”.
- The time may be entered in either 12 or 24-hour format. If the
display is in English, and the hour entered is less than
thirteen, the display prompts you to specify “am” or “pm”.

Press [Show] This will open the time change function. Simple rule. If you want to modify a value, press [CHANGE] and you'll get a cursor. Once you're done with that entry, press [NEXT] to go to the Minutes, press [CHANGE] etc...

I have also included how to change the date below.
Press [Next].
The display shows the date, for example, Date 31 Mar 91.
4. Press CHANGE (softkey under screen). The display shows Year: 88.
5. Set the year.
a. Press CHANGE.
A cursor replaces the number on the display.
b. Enter the year using the dial pad.
For example, press a a to enter the year 1990. ?
c . Press [Next] The display shows the month, for example Month: 01.
6. Set the month.
a. Press [CHANGE]
A cursor replaces the number on the display.
b. Enter the month using the dial pad.
For example, press 02 to enter February.
c . Press [Next].
The display shows the day, for example Dar: 01.
7. Set the date.
a. Press CHANGE
: A cursor replaces the number on the display.
b.” Enter the date using the dial pad.
For example, press 14.

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.
