BRIGHTNESS AND CLOCK SET ARE GREYED OUT, INOPERABLE

I HAVE THE TT1 3RD ED. IN THE US, BUT I IMAGINE IT'S THE SAME? FOR SOME REASON, THE CLOCK IS 4 HOURS AHEAD OF WHERE IT WAS ORIGINALLY SET. I ALSO WANT TO CHANGE THE BRIGHTNESS TO SAVE BATTERY POWER.

SORRY 'BOUT THE CAPS, i WASN'T LOOKING :-(.

Hmm for the TT1 I believe there is a way to change your time in the settings menu, but I no longer have one in front of me to figure it out, you might check for something like time and date, or time zones, also the brightness can be set under brightness/ or Contrast. That is found in the preferences menu, i will try and get my hands on one of those to be more accurite for you.

My batteries don't seem to last more than 4 hrs on my Garmin. Why?


if you are using an automotive unit it shouldn't last longer than that reason being is that you always have a readily available power source.

if you are using a handheld unit (hiking, etc.) with rechargeable batteries then you might need to replace the batteries.

there are a couple of ways to prolong battery life.

1: turn the brightness down in the display settings.
2: turn the volume down of the unit

We want to reset the clock from am to pm or start beginning questions all over again.


1. Turn on the TomTom unit. 2. Tap the screen to bring up the menu. 3. Tap the "Change Preferences" icon 4. Keep hitting the arrow to go to the next page. Clock setting is on page 6 of the preferences dialog. 5. If the Set Clock option is greyed out, you will need to perform a system reset and then perform these steps over again.
To reset the system, start with the power off. Then, hold down the power button for about 15 seconds, until you see the TomTom logo appear on the display. When the logo appears, release the power button. After this reset, you should be able to turn the unit back on and proceed with your setup from scratch.

My Garmin nuvi 1300 brightness problems


I spoke to Garmin Support about this issue. There are 2 settings for contrast on the nuvi 1300. You need to set the contrast while it is plugged into the vehicle, and also while it is unplugged from the vehicle. The reason for the 2 settings is to save the charge of the battery while it is not plugged into the vehicle or power source.

Touch screen inoperable


Try cleaning the screen with alcohol and a soft cloth, pay special attention to the edges. Use a Q-Tip or similar device to get into the crevasses.

Then reboot and try again.

Hope this helps

Have you tried the brightness control in the setup menu? If so, most likely a defective display.
