Question about Lowrance GPS

Open Question

I ordered a new Xt-151 tranducesr extension 12/07 order #692770 to replace the extension when purchased about 3 years ago #051 1938-00 Serial # 40403212. It was corroded from salt in Florida and pins in the connector corroded even tho I sprayed them with corrosion protector. The new one just failed me 4/20/08 for what appears to be same reason, except it was working yesterday andsuddenly quit. When I inspected the connection , one of the silver metal pins in the cord is msssing now from the plug in. I have a separate power switch as you recommend and remove the unit to avoid theft after each use, then cover the cord with a piece of clear plastic tubing to protect is from salt air. Shall I send the cord and unit also to you to check out???? Thanks Lloyd Wooldridtge fareastlw@comcast.net

SOURCE: problems with Magellan Maestro? 4040 GPS power connection

Hi,

I also have the same problem - the yellow power jack has broken connections. I fixed it by soldering it back. In my unit, the connection pads under the external power jack were intact and I was able to solder the jack easily. The audio out jack nearby has also come-off the PC board, along with the pads. I am not able to re-solder these back. Since the audio jack is part of the speaker circuit I have lost the text-to-speech function!

Hope you are able to fix yours.

SOURCE: garmin fishfinder 160 blue . no powerup

I have a 160 blue also, and this morning I had the same problem. I called tech support while I was out on the water but no help. When I got home I double checked my connections on the battery minder/selector and the fuse panel. My GPS worked fine but the FF only beeped, like it had low power and the display wouldnt come up. It came up once for about a second and then faded earlier on the water. I pulled the power and ground connections from the fuse block and put them directly on the battery, it came right up. I now run the FF wired straight to the single battery and the GPS and other items on my other battery.

Hope it helps.

SOURCE: my tom tom keeps switching off as tho out of power

You need to plug your TOM TOM into a PC with Internet connection and go to the tomtom web site: www.tomtom.com
You will need a usb cable that has the "mini" usb standard connector that plugs into the TOM TOM unit. It should update automatically, but you will need a TomTom Home account (free) created. Then you can download the latest updates that should clear up the power issues. Otherwise, get a new power cord as they do wear out with daily use. -Greg

Can you change a GPS navigation system from street name to postcode


I am not sure what you mean by " post code" but a gps uses maps that are stored on the unit itself. In order to make a change on how it shows locations, it would mean that the maps would have to be edited. Any change like you are suggesting would involve a lot of work with computer programming. Since it is not a standard method of locating, it would not be marketed.

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
