Poor gps reception-are you inside a building

A few resons that a GPS will give this message. The first is just like it says.. are u in a concrete canyon expecting satellite connection?

The other is insufficient charge to the battery, it should be fully charged via the AC adaptor or the USB connection on the Laptop. Depending on age and number of recharges it may be that the battery is soggy and needs replacing. Only you, know that information.

Also a warning do not plug it into catr power and then start the engine, you will damage the IC chip and then it will never work again until you throw lots of money at it.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

I plugged my garmin nuvi 200 gps into my laptop to charge it but now I cannot safely remove it. i get an error message that says the unit is being used by another program.

If you are using Windows, press CTRL ALT DEL to activate the Task manager. Look under the application Tab to see if a garmin software application is still running. If it is, highlight it and press Terminate/End process.

If you can't find anything under the Application tab, click the processes TAB. On the left, you have the list of running processes in some order. Just above the first listed one on the frame you will see a small arrow, click it to list the processes in alphabetical order and look for a garmin software. Highlight it and click the End process button. You will get a warning about losing data. At this point, you will have to decide if you want to terminate or not.

If you opt not to use these disruptive terminations, I suggest you turn off the computer and give it all the time it needs to put its state in order.
Remove the GPS once the computer is turned off.

Tried to update my Tom Tom One by connecting to my

Remove the SD card

The card needs to be formatted properly first that's all,

formatting is better done in a card reader.

Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system

Update your device without the SD card.

Make sure your GPS runs OK without the SD card

Now re-connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.

You now ned to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options.

Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.

then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card


Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the sd card and re-boot
It should now work again

Garmin 200 won't turn on, flashes "Garmin" screen when plugged in

I connected the unit to the car charger instead of the USB charger and then held down the reset for 10-15 seconds, after which the system would show the computer connection on the charger and then boot up when not on the charger.

Batter low message when plug into lighter holder

Sound as though the I3 is not getting power from the lighter. Hook the garmin to your laptop and turn on the laptop, now turn on the I3, does it still shows low battery message on the screen? If the answer is yes then the USB connector has failed (know problem with the I3). There are many unit sold on ebay with broken USB connector. If the I3 doesn't show Battery Low then the lighter cable is defective.
