If there's smoke, there's electrical problems. Chances are it's gone.

Brand new unit. worked great for 2 days. now unit


  • Try to charge the unit for 8 hrs using the wall adapter and then try to power on the unit, if its still the same and it will not power on try to call for the tech support so that they can replace the unit if they can't fix it and don't forget to have the receipt number for reference.

NAVLINK NO GPS SIGNALand sometimes shows grey signal strength which means not strong enough to receive, help needed to fix this problem. tthanks


Happened to me recently,  showing grey signal bars but never locked (turn blue) so I was quite frustrated by it as I've only used the system a few times.  I have chased up a few suggestions from the web & the one I tried work.   Some suggested using Sirfdemo to reset the GPS receiver to NMEA mode as they could accidentally go into SIRF mode if the device is left active but has no view of the sky for an extended period (can easily happen if you left the unit in standby mode and placed the GPS in the glovebox).   The other solution is to remove the battery for anywhere from 24 hours to 7 days so that the SiRF chip capacitor will reset itself ...this is the solution I tried -  I left my unit without the battery for about 5 to 6 days and it came back to life again,  I've read some people left their GPS (albeit not Navlink) off for 4 days but still didn't work but retried again for 7 days and it worked.  Remember, once you place the battery back in I think the capacitor is charged up again so if it was not left off long enough you'll have to start counting from day 1 again.   All the best.  Jono

My Garmin 780 asking for a unlock code


Your only options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin are:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was originally entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin.

Frozen/ always says waiting on valid gps signal


The same thing happened to my tomtom and this is how I resolved it. I turned the tomtom off and when I turned it on I held the power button; the screen turned completely green and when I removed the car adaptor the screen went blank. When I turned it back on it found the satellites in under a minute.

GPS working intermittently


With ref to the downloaded files. There are 5 sets of files on the server.
2 Day
2 Day version 2
7 Day
7 Day Version 2
All of the above appear to be updated once per hour although none of them now seem to work for me with Global Locate's version 1.19 software. There is also a 10 day version which seems not to be updated any more. There are notes on the internet that explain how to edit the registry to make the software point to an appropriate area for the correct file. If you are pointing to the 10 day version it might be possible to point at the 2 or 7 day versions and recover the situation. There are only two lines to edit but bear in mind all the warnings about editing the registry

Gps module


I just went through this with Lowrance. tthe LGC 2000 module on my LCX 20 depth finder "quit responding" out of the clear blue. You have to go Lowrance.com and they have some tests you can follow to see if it is a bad cable or the module itself. I had to replace the module. They charged $99 bucks plus $12.50 shipping for a new one. I bought it spring of 2008, and the unit was 3 months out of warranty when it quit working. Last season I had lower back fusion and didn't use it except for 2 times late in the season. Getting ahold of Lowrance is going to be an experience. I called twice and waited on hold over 35 minutes before I was suddenly cut off both times. I tried email too, but it took 3-5 days to receive a response. Mine broke down June 18 of this year. I started trying to get hold of Lowrance the next day. By the time all the back and forth emails with the delayed responses were done, I received my new unit on July 24. 5 weeks! with out my gps in MN. It is a short season up here as it is. I sure didn't enjoy waiting that long.
