Question about PDAs

1 Answer

I have an HP iPAC rx 5900. GPS refused to pick signals. Tried a re-set (both types). The reset screen locks with a 'full' bar. On/off button does not work. Tried taking battery out etc. Any ideas?

    Thanks for this! I'll try your suggestions this evening when home. To clarify matters, after a soft, or factory, re-set, the re-boot screen comes up, the progress bar runs to the end, and then the unit just freezes at that point. No light is shown on the on/off button or activity light.
    Cheers!

    P.S. HP want £200 to fix it...

    without inserting the battery try to hold down the on/off button for 30-40 seconds this will release the flea power(static electric) from the device. then you put the battery and reset the device when you turn it on it should work fine

    To reset :
    insert stylus in small rest hole on the side of the device after the flea power

My IPAC hx2790b will not recognise my 4gb sd card


PCM, Backup the data on the card to a computer. Format the card. Try on your iPAC. If still not recognized. the format in a different computer. Try on your iPAC. Repeat the process till it is recognized by your phone. When and if you get fed up of trying, throw the card away as useless/unusable.

Will not fire up a gps signal


Most GPS systems require a first time boot-up where they scan all registered satellites to determine where in the world they are and what satellites to concentrate their navigational efforts on. Try charging the GPS up entirely, and then doing a hard reset of the system (either by navigating to the hard reset in software or by pressing the tiny reset button usually located on GPS units), and then taking the system out under the open sky and letting it run for half an hour or so, making sure it is running in navigation mode (as opposed to setup or media mode). Once it locks properly onto a small subset of satellites, it should not have much difficulty.
If you continue having problems, check to be certain you are running the latest software on the device which can make a big difference. The latest software for the 520 is here:

Good luck...

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
