When I switch on a message about connecting to my computer always comes onto the screen. Can I turn off this message?

This message is usually shown (only) when your TomTom is connected to a computer (USB port). If your TomTom GPS is not connected to a computer when you switch it on, this message should not display.
If this is not the case, try re-booting your GPS, by holding down the ON/OFF button (for a long while) until the GPS turns off, or by using the RESET (pin hole) ... and see if it fix the issue.

I have a nuvi 265w garmin. It turns on and then turns off without loading the map


The GPS battery may need to be charged.
Does the GPS turn on when connected to a vehicle power cable?

Running the Garmin WebUpdater to load or reload the latest software will usually fix any bugs.

Contact Garmin Tech Support for assistance.

GPS problem. I recently got my first Android phone and I am very happy with it. Recently I have discovered one problem in my Apollo: i can't get the GPS to work. Is there something I have to switch...

GPS isn't on by default (or you'd see yourbattery drain even faster).
Check whether GPS is on by going to
Settings, Location and Security,Use GPS satellites
If the box on the right doesn't have a green check in it, GPS is off.
Touch to turn it on.
Many programs will turn GPS on automatically. Check the settings for the navigationprogram you're using.
You might also want to look at a free app called GPS Test.
There are also apps such as Quick Settings that will let you turn GPS on andoff without going deep into the settings menu.

Hi My Garmin Nuvi 1200 is frozen on loading maps how do I fix this issue

The only solution is a reset. To do this you turn the unit on (this may take a few tries with it coming on, blanking off, and cycling like this a few times). Once it is on press the lower right hand corner of the screen.

It will ask if you want to reset and you say YES.

This will clear the memory completely (but not the security code, if you have one).

It will start (or you need to turn it on again) and it will have none of your previous settings and none of your previous addresses but it will be working again.

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.

We lose fix info. on the c120and the Auto pilot has no display. The problem is intermittent

This sounds like a problem with the receiver. If you can not get GPS fix (sometimes) you will have to start looking at the GPS antenna and cable. If the unit is new check out the location of the antenna. As with anything that works with satellites it need a clear view of the sky to fix onto the "birds". A GPS connects to numerous "birds" at a time, so ensure that the antenna has a wide angle view of the sky. If it is old you will have to start looking for connection problems. This is usually the case when the fault is intermittent. Check for possible water damage and loose or less than adequate connections. Also ensure the cable is in a good condition.

How do i get updates for my gps

Usually one goes to the manufacturers web site and downloads them... then connect the GPS to PC and update, sometime you can connect the GPS first & then update straight to the GPS when connected.
