    The GPS has good signal it is locked at a previous location. I have tried to reset back to default settings and nothing changed. I can still get directions from it if I program the starting and end points in just no live feed with the map

Put a good charge on the battery , then take it outside and in clear view of the open sky, turn it on and let it sit for up to 30 minutes to acquire, (lock on) to the satellites...if that fails, let me know and ill tell you what to try next

    you say it has a good signal, how many bars does it have..if its not at least four green bars, it willl not lock on...if your sure its locking on and you have already tried the reset., try setting your position manually. to set your 2035 to your current position,

    1. From the Main Menu screen, tap the Settings icon.
    2. Tap GPS Options.
    3. Tap Set GPS Position.
    4. Enter an address as you were selecting a destination.

    if that doesnt work, let me know, but typically if it stays in the same location, not enough (or any) satellites are locking on.

    sorry for the jumbled mess above, but fixya does not know how the fix the text format issue they created

  • Ben Dover Oct 07, 2010

    BTW, i should of asked,did you move the gps while it was turned off...when i say move, i mean like a few hundred miles?

    that could be a factor, if you did, but setting the position manually will sure help but youll still have to take it outside and let the satellites lock on...(could take up to 30 minutes)

Freezes up while operating

I have found that my aiptek digital camcorder also freezes like this sometimes after I have pressed the button to stop recording a movie. You are right that sometimes you must remove the battery to unfreeze it, but I have found a couple of other tricks that work sometimes.

1. You can hold down the menu button for a few seconds (like 6). Sometimes this kicks it into the menu and unfreezes it.

2. Sometimes using the power button inside of where the screen stores to turn it on and then off again often helps.

3. Popping the digital card out (push in so it unlocks, then push it right back in) also helps unfreeze it for me.

If those don't work, pop the battery out again.

I do find that every few months I need to clean the connection points on both my battery and the camera where the battery clicks in. After I do this it behaves much better for a couple months. Good luck.
