    How do I reset it?

  • googley1 Sep 13, 2010

    Thanks for assistance but the type I have is operated from a panel mounted on the side of the unit to select whatever functions are needed etc. The unit has been well protected and worked fine the last time I used it but for some unknown reason the problem above occured. Cheers.

Hi,


Usually blackening of a part of screen is most probably due to faulty LCD screen.

he Display of a GPS Consists of (2) Separate Devices that Work Together.

# The Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)
# The Touchscreen with Glass

The touchscreen consists of several transparent layers with spacers that are applied with an adhesive to a thin pane of glass. The touchscreen & glass lies on top of the LCD display. The touchscreen & LCD display both have their own flex cables that connect to the main board.

The touch screen has a ribbon flex cable with 4 or more conductors, each conductor representing a direction such as:

1. X-Coordinate, Left
2. X-Coordinate, Right
3. Y-Coordinate, Up
4. Y-Coordinate, Down

Most GPS units use a resistive, analog touchscreen. A voltage is applied to the touchscreen and by pressing anywhere on the touchscreen, it acts like a voltage divider, returning a specific voltage value, based upon the location touched on the screen. The GPS is programmed to read this voltage and it translates it back to a specific position on the screen, which may or may not activate a function.

The touchscreen doesn't have to sit directly on top of the display. If you were able to set it beside the display, you could still press the touchscreen and activate a function. The LCD display has no idea where the touchscreen is mounted, all it is concerned about, is what area is being pressed and whether or not that location matches a particular function on the LCD display menu.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    If the functions is operated by the side panels, this is more suggestive of a screen failure. If firmware would have been at fault, you could never even see 1/4 of the screen. It would be either completely white or black or a message like xxxx.exe or something of that sort.

    In this regard, you need to send the unit for repair.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    PS - Do accept the solution,if 100% satisfied from my response.

Hello,

Yes, it is possible to download the coordinates from navman to your desktop. connect your GPS to your system via the USB cable that came with the GPS and wait for your system to detect it, once it detects it, open the files and download the information to the desktop.

Take care.

    Hello,

    I will suggest you reset the device, once the device is reset, it should fix that problem, but ensure you download the coordinates to your desktop irst before resetting it.

I know the GPS coordinates of a place, I want to be. How do I enter those to start finding a route from where I am?


I am assuming this is a Quest or Quest2 GPS.
Using the map screen use the larger 4way "navigation" button on the front panel and cursor the screen pointer to the location you would like to save. You may need to zoom in on the location. At the bottom of the screen you will see the "lat/long" displayed. The further you "zoom in" the more precise you can get with the "lat/long". Once you have the pointer at your desired coordinates, hit the "OK" button. This will bring up an address or some other feature name. If there are multiple choices, simply pick the one that is most appropriate and again his "OK". At the bottom of the screen you will see 3 "buttons" (save, find near, and route to). Select "save". Now you will see a screen with several windows that contain the lat/long data, perhaps an address, a map icon, and the name you selected in the earlier screen. You can again use the large 4 way "navigation" button on the front panel to switch between the displayed fields. This will allow you to select a map icon such as a house, store, marina, or whatever. You can then use the "nav" button to select the lat/long window and make any final adjustments to the lat/long data. You can also move the cursor up to the waypoint name box and change it to whatever you prefer. Once you have all of the data fields to your preference on this page, you can use the "nav" button to cursor down to "OK" at eh bottom of the screen and then hit the "OK" button on the front panel. The waypoint should be stored with the correct data in the GPS.

How do I use coordinates? I entered map coordinates and it took us to the wrong place.


Some Tomtoms can use latitude and longitude coordinates. They refer, of course, to points on the map.
To use coordinates on some tomtoms you tap the Browse Map option. A general Map of the route is displayed. The screen has three buttons at the bottom
  1. Options
  2. Find
  3. an icon for the point on the map.
  4. Done
Tap the Options button: The Map detail Preferences appears, offering the choice to put a check mark in POI, Favorites, images. At the bottom of screen you have 3 buttons : POI, Advanced, Done.

Tap Advanced: In thsi screen you can put a checl mar on Names, Markers, and Coordinates.
Put a Check mark on Coordinates and press Done, Then Done again until you exit all those options.

Now your tomtom is configured to display coordinates. Be aware that GPS technology was created for military purposes and its civilian uses cannot be expected to offer pin point accuracy. It took an act of the US president to allow its use for civilian localization.

When you plan a route you can use longitude and latitude. Here is the icon you should like for.

Can you show how to convert pola to rectangular o


Hello,
To avoid errors make sure that the angle unit is THE ONE required by your problem. To verify or to change the angle unit press [SIFT][MODE] and select [3: Deg] for degrees, [4:Rad] for radians, or [5:Grad] for grads.

Convert from rectangular to polar

[SHIFT][+] (Pol) . Screen displays Pol(
You enter the X-coordinate, and the Y coordinate separated by a comma, then you close the parenthesis and press [=].

Exemple: Polar coordinate of the point (1,1)
Pol( 1, 1) gives
r=1.414213562 (square root of 2)
θ=45

Here is how you enter it
Press [SHIFT][MODE][2:LineIO]
[SHIFT][POL] 1 [SHIF] [,] 1 [)] [=]

The screen displays
Pol(1,1)
r= 1.414213562
θ= 45


Convert from polar to rectangular coordinates

Rec ( radius, angle) =

Exemple: Recatngular coordinates of (r=3, θ=60°)
[SHIFT][Rec] 3 [SHIFT][,] 60 [ ) ] [=]
The screen displays
Rec(3,60)
X= 1.5
Y= 2.598076211


Hope it helps.

Getting to see the UTM coordinates of where I am on the gps screen


The solution is in the manual but however it is not given the prominence it deserves. It is talked about in passing and yet it is the most important thing GPS users need. One goes to the Pointer and uses the scroll up and down keys to get the coordinates aprt from other things like bearing, elevation, sunrise or sunset time, trip odmeter etc .

The manual should clearly show this prominently. I gave this GPS to 4 people and the manual and all failed to figure this out. This shows the instruction is not user friendly. The Old Garmin GPS would lead you straight into coordinates and the accuracy reading on the same screen display and this was simple.

thanks
