Your electronic compass is probably turned on, and if so, either it is not calibrated or you are not holding the GPS unit level.

Try turning off the electronic compass by holding the PAGE button in for a couple seconds. With the electronic compass turned off, the GPS will instead show direction of travel using the current track, which is probably what you are expecting.

Cheers!

Hi Cookie, These vehicles are often fitted with the new D4 Direct injection engines. I would suggest you take it for a diagnostic scan. A very common fault on these vehicles is the high pressure unit fitted to the engine becomes defective. Another is the injectors becoming fouled. I will not be surprised if the scan shows a defective temperature sender unit which is responsible for enriching the engine fuel supply during start up. Regards John

From your info the GND & shield (could be the same) are crossed. or one is open. A shield as in the antenna coax or an isolated ground as in an internal type coax in the interconnect cable of the wireless headset assembly. I suggest doing a 'BOARD WALK' routine, Move the wireless assy from one VHF unit to another, the problem follows-bad head set assy. If not, return to original VHF, problem returns bad internal connection in VHF unit. Please let me know the outcome.

I am going hiking in a wilderness area. I want to use mjy garmin 255wt to get back to the trail head in case I get lost. I know that I can save my location before heading out, but what then?


OK, you know how to save your trailhead by touching your vehicle icon and saving the location. At this point you can also select GoTo to provide routing. Your standard 255WT database is for driving, so it is not going to have your trails or terrain data, but you can go to the settings, route options, and select direct rather than on-roads and it will draw a straight line to your trailhead. It is still a good idea to carry a compass & map with you, but you can get a good idea of which way you are going by walking and seeing where you are headed relavent to your course line. I like using the display set to "Track-up" for off-road, so the top of the display is the direction I am going. Some people prefer North Up, but that is disorienting for me.

The GPSmap 60CSx will not acquire a satellite signal even in open water with clear skies on Lake Michigan.


I suggest trying a external antenna. This will let you know if the internal antenna connector is broken. You can also do a system reset. Back up all user data first then;

Power the unit on while holding down the Page and Enter buttons. Hold them down until you get a prompt that asks you if you want to RESET. Select yes and lets hope that works. Also doing a update may fix the unit also. To update just use the free program WebUpdater found on Garmins website. For assistance please feel free to contact GPSCity the gps experts

Kenwood head unit CD and AUX sound not working


I fixed the sound problem with tech support from Kenwood. I had the blue wire from the Kenwood which is the antennae turn on wired to the amp turn on for the vehicle (2001 Blazer with Bose factory stereo). This is how I was told to wire it from the installation tech where I purchased the wiring harness. The tuning played fine because the Bose amp turned on when I played the tuner but when I played the cd or aux the amp turned off, thus no sound. The kenwood tech toldd me to wire the blue/white wire to the amp turn on for the vehicle so the amp would be on when ever power to the Kenwood was on. I rewired this way and everything works great now.

AVIC-N1 GPS not working


Have you tried calibrating the sensors? And is the speed sense working, i thing the unit relies primarily on the speed sense then on GPS. You can easily tell if the speed sense is woking on the calibration screen, as you drive the unit omits a bleep.
