SOURCE: leak inside gps

Leak inside a gps is usually just a battery, sometimes they overcharge for to long and when happens the battery deforms and leaks. I have no idea where to send them to for repairs, bbut usually they are not that complicated to get into them and remove and replace the battery, they batteries in most gps units are the same size and usually the same shape as cellphone batteries, they just have different connections on the outside of them, but the insides are usually the same, also you might have one that you can run without the battery in it. I would suggest that you might want to open (if no warranty on it) up carefully, remove the battery and see if you can run it that way. Be advised though that if you do this, any power interruption to the unit while you are driving will cause it to shut down and you will have to start your trip entry all over again. Hope this helps.

I have a Northstar 6000i that will not display the tide track information. It has for 3 years,and now has a message stating that it can't display the information for the current date.


Probably the data didn't go past 2010. I have a Northstar 951XD, and first time out this year, no more tide track data - my manual says it only went fron 1994 - 2010. So how to get updates?

My 6000i flashes No Engine Data


I researched my problem on the web, found several posts on various forums that helped. Bottom line, I determined that my 6000i installation did not include a gateway. I did that by eye balling the system after removing some panels.

I-mate jasjam frozen


Hi rossei. this is jamie. I have had this problem for long time but now I tried some else which really worked for me, I hope this works for you too. Well to make it short, disconnect your i-mate jasjam's battry and take your sim card out from your i-mate jasjam and leave it for about 10 to 20 minutes then reconnect every thing back together. There you are, thats fixed now. Its not really 100% solution for this however it works on mine but I do this procedure all the time to get it working, Good luck
