Greetings . . . I turned my Garmin 2720 on in my


Take the GPS out of your van to an area with a clear view of the sky. Power the unit on. If the unit is working correctly, then it will acquire the satellites. You can then put the unit back in your van. You may have to reposition the unit to keep the satellite lock.

If the unit does not acquire satellites outside, then the unit is defective.

Change the country setting for a garmin 1350


Typically, when the unit is turned on, the satellitetechnology is able to pin point the unit's current location and provide mapsbased on the user's position. However, if there is not a clear signal or youare located in a different country than the ending destination you are tryingto program into the unit, you may have to manually change the country. For thatplease follow these steps: 1. Touch anywhere on the display screen to access the mainmenu. 2. Tap or select the "Change Preferences" options. 3. Navigate to your map settings. In a Garmin this will belocated under the "View Maps" and then "Change Maps"settings. 4. Use the "Up" and "Down" arrows toscroll through the list of available countries. Once the country you arelooking for is highlighted, press the "OK" button. You will then beasked to select a state or more specific region in the selected country. Onceselected, press "OK" second time. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Location is not shown correctly


everytime u turn the GPS device on it takes anywhere from 30secs to 4 mins to find and lock in the satellites . Once the satellites locked in it will be then start taking ur commands. In ur case u turned it off as u started driving and when u restarted it , it had a memory of where u turned it off and displayed u the location where u turned it off which was ur home, right, now if u would have waited till some satellites locked in , it would have then automatically displayed ur then current location. so next time when u start the unit (any GPS) wait till it locks in the satellites.

thank.

Why does my garmin c340 tell the wrong side of road a house is on?


This is common with most GPS receivers not just yours. It has to do with your position relative to the Sat. and the amount of processor utilization looking for triangulation readings. Basically its a brief signal deterioration on one or more signals so your device is lagging a bit.

please rate. thanks.

You need to go outside with a clear view of the sky and get a satellite fix with the unit turned on (usually a couple of minutes), Then the maps will show your current position. By entering your address you are trying to create a route from current position to your destination. By default the current position is set for Kansas (Garmin US office), but once you have locked onto the satellite your current postion will be the last position before the unit was turned off.

Memory full is being displayed when i try to go to a new destination and when i try to delete a favourite the unit turns off.


Garmin nuvi 610 T
memory full was being displayed on screen whilst on destination ,sometimes followed by route waypoint memory full .

I found by turning unit off , then holding finger on top left of screen ,and at the same time turning back on again the unit would go into maintenance mode.
Follow prompts on screen to reset waypoint memory.
Mine works as good as gold now,hope this helps!
