Help with Garmin C330 that dosn't seem to know where it's going

Having trouble with this device, it dosn't take me to where I want to go, keeps getting lost and not recognizing places or taking me down dead end roads that don't exist. Have a Tom Tom too and tried it against that but the Tom Tom gets me there every time, no problems. Can anyone advise what is the problem with the Garmin, which I bought as heard they were the best make. Anyone have any advise what I should do.

    Takes me extremely out of the way, like going in a square 3 miles when I could've turned left for 10 blocks. It repeats the same error. Changes destinations while driving and will take you around the world to go around the block.

I had to replace my driver side cv axle assembly, but I cannot get the new one to go in. Every thing looks the same as the old one, any suggestions?

moonpieeyes, You don't mention here what end you are having trouble with but I am going to assume that it is the end that goes into the transaxle. If you take a look at this end you will see a snap ring just before the end of the shaft. This ring keeps the axle from coming out too far as to cause a leak from the seal. You have to get this ring past the splined gear in the transaxle. Place the axle into the transaxle as far as it will go, make sure the splines are engaged, and then use a little force (push the axle straight in) to compress the snap ring and into its proper place. You will know when this is in place because the tulip portion of the axle will be very close to the transaxle and you will feel it "hit bottom". Continue with the rest of the reassembly. Good luck with this.

I hahe usb dongle i placed it but computer does not recognise it

Try placing the dongle into another USB port; sometimes one can die and nothing will be recognized in that port. The dongle may also be dead-on-arrival, try placing it in another computer with a known good USB port and see if it's recognized. If it isn't you can try returning it to the store you bought it at saying it is dead.

If that does not work try looking on the manufacturers website for drivers for your Operating System. If you are having trouble finding a driver and changing the USB port does not work, please respond back with more details such as the dongles model and your Operating System so someone can help you find the drivers.

Hope this helps, and thank you for using FixYa.

Having trouble with memorex mp touch tried to sync a video, which we have been having problems with, and now it shut off and cant get my computer to recognize the device.

Try resetting the unit. Place a needle or a safety pin or something pointy in the reset hole (which is located on the bottom right side of the unit), and press until you feel you pressed a button.

Ktradam: You will have to wipe your handheld and then reinstall the Blackberry 4.3 Software using Desktop Manager that came in the box with your device. You will lose all information on the phone so make sure that all you information was backed up periodically.

Drunkmonkey: If the device is reported lost/stolen it is placed on the National Negative List and will not be taken off until the person that originally placed that restriction on it takes it off. Chances are they already recieved another device and will never even worry about the one you have.

Big Dawgg: Blackberry was having issues with their Desktop Manager and did issue an update which should have been included the next time you sychronized your device. If Nobex is a third party application, BB Desktop may have recognized it to be incompatible but installed it with incorrect scripts. You will have to delete that application or go to Nobex's site and check compatibility with that software version and call Blackberry Tech Support through Customer Care to trouble shoot and see if there are any features on your account interfering with that application.

tigerclay: Sometimes you can simply click cancel on Desktop Manager to opt out of entering a password. Times when i have updated a customer's device through Desktop Manager, it asks for a password or prompts you to enter one but I leave it blank or just press cancel. The default password is the last four digits of your password or 0000.

Dear Sir:

It seems that the printer has gone bad because when you get this message 'USB Device not recognized' it means that the usb device connected to the computer is defective however I would suggest you to connect this device to another computer and if you are getting the same error with the other computer.

Please contact hp support they should be able to help you with this.

Please feel free to get back to me If you need any further assistance.
