Kansas is a default location. It is not getting a sat signal as it asks about being indoors. New GPS or one turned off for a long period of time or moved a large distance while off will need to download a new constellation table before it will be able to function. This may take 20 minutes or so. Unless it is a defective unit, place it where it has a clear view of unobstructed sky. And leave it on a while. Once it learns what sats to expect, it should begin to work.
if you're radio won't turn on....there are only 2 things that u need to do..first is to have the battery replaced, if it doesn't you just have to call the manufacturer/have it replaced if it has warranty...if u guys wanna save time dealing with it..
Don't disconnect it just because the screen freezes. This can happen if the battery is depleted too far, because the load is too great for charging AND running the device simultaneously. Leave it connected for 20 minutes or so, to see if the screen returns to normal appearance. If not, then you will be needing a new battery. Be sure to charge the new one BEFORE it is fully depleted. They are not NiCd batteries, so there is no need to fear ?memory effect". With NiMh and Lithium batteries, those days are gone, thank God!
Go to the gamin site and register. You will then need to download the driver for your model. After you register the web site should walk you through this. after you download the driver you may then update the software. One word of note, if you have the 2008 software than your up to date. Gamin updates there maps only once a year.
