Whenever i put in the address from which i am leaving to go to a destination it wont do anything and also in the car it wont show me the road that i am on


When the GPS device starts up ( when you power it on ), it will take several seconds, up to a couple of minutes to locate the satellites, before it will show where you are (on the road / map). So, you simply have to enter the destination address, to get directions from where you are, to the destination.
It is easier for the GPS device to locate the satellites if the GPS / you are not under (some) cover, e.g. indoor garage, under ground parking, under trees, etc. Some times you'll just have to wait a little longer. [But you can enter the destination addresses even before it locates your position ]

Spent the winter in Florida and now we are back in DE and Everytime we turn it on it goes back to Florida. It isn't giving us the correct direction to our destination


It sounds like it may not have received a signal since you've returned to DE. It needs to sync up with the satellites in your new location before it will begin navigating properly.

- Make sure that your GPS can "see the sky"
- Turn it on.
- Wait for about 10 minutes.
- THEN try entering your destination.

Once your GPS re-syncs with the satellites in your current location it should be good to go and you'll be on your way!

How do I calibrate my compass in the eTrex Venture HC. The book says to go to the tje menue and then press calibration. My GPS does not give me this option.


I will be happy to help you with this. Unfortunnately, the Etrex Venture does not have an Electronic Compass, therefore you cannot calibrate it. What this means is that this unit will show the correct direction of travel as long as you are moving. The unit takes satellite reading every 1 seconds and compares it's location with the last location. This way it can read the direction of travel. It will not give correct readings unless you are moving.
I hope this helps.

Wrong location


You need to update the firmware. The newer firmware will use the satellite for your location.

Waiting for a valid gps signal


A couple solutions:

1) Make sure the TomTom can "see" the sky well... the GPS satellite waves are rather weak and easily blocked by trees, and anything not a window.

2) Hook up your TomTom to the computer (see details at www.tomtom.com or in the manual)

2b) Do a "sync" and download all updates. One of the updates is a small file that tells the TomTom where the satellites are located this week, and helps it sync up much faster. The longer time between uses, the longer it takes TomTom to find the satellites, and that can takes up to 2-5 minutes sometimes.

That can be frustrating with a car full of people waiting to get going and the driver doesn't want to drive without making sure the TomTom works and is giving valid directions.

New Garmin 330 stuck on kansas


Take the unit outside and turn it on. Then select View Maps, at the top of the screen it will say either "Locating satellites" or "Acquiring Satellites". Once the garmin has locked onto the overhead satellites, then it will say "Ready to Navigate".

Locating Satellites take longer than Acquiring Satellites.

Can't change location-appears as if still in Kansas despite downloads


You need to go outside and turn on the Garmin until it has acquired a satellite lock (15-20 minutes). Kansas is the default location (Garmin Headquarters). Once you have acquire satellites, the Garmin will remember the last position as the starting position when the power is turned off. You know you have acquire a satellite lock once "Ready to Navigate" appears on the top of the screen.
