    Thanks for the help, i have the manuals and the CD maps which have been loaded. having searched the web it would appear that although Blaupunkt say that the speed sensor is not necessary for this unit, many users are having similar problems if it is not connected as in my case, what I need now is to locate the speed sensor wiring on the car.

With no speed sensor connected you have to manually calibrate the unit. You will need a piece of road between 100 and 500 meters(110 to 550 yards) You will need to measure this distance as accurately as possible.
Turn off the ignition and switch on the unit.
Press and hold "menu" for at least 2 seconds untill the "Install" menu is displayed. Scroll down to "Man. Calib" and select. Select the route length using "Menu" key and press "OK"
Drive the length that you selected at no more than 30km/h(18mph). Then press "OK" and the cailbration is complete. Please note manual calibration accuracy is dependant on the accuracy of you measurement of the distance to be travelled and keeping your speed as constant as possible.
For help with connecting to the vehicle speed sensor I will need to know your vehicle make, model, engine size and year of manufacture.

Hi the only manual, i could find was this one at the above website...
usually if this isn't a setting or the like, then re-flashing the unit with the latest software and maps usually sorts any problems out. Sometimes you can hook up the unit via USB and download the software and drivers again from the manufacturers website. However there doesn't seem to be much support for your make and model.

Yes, Garmin satnavs use Navteq maps. Go to www.Navteq.com and there's a link there called Map Reporter where they take reports of map changes. I have reported several in the past and eventually they all appeared on map updates.

Tom Tom XL shows me 200-300 yards from my actual


1- Signal strenght loss is a common problem, has to do with how often they refresh, whats on your dash and how good the line of sight is to the gps sattelites. Ironically the window mount that they give you can in some cases place the gps unit too far back from the window to get good clear reception.
2- You are out in the field because of the maps that you are using. Maps while mostly accurate are not exact and road changes that are made to sections of road may take years to show up in the map or might never show up. There are only two or three actual companies that do the gps survey work for the roads, and gps manufacturers like Tom Tom buy user rights to use these maps, so if a particular section of road has changed or been moved and nobody has been out to recalcute the changes then your gps will be off the mark.
Hope this information helps you out.

Can i download free maps for my 2year old garminnuvi200 satnav and from which site


You can update mapping software on most sat nav units to take into account alterations to the road network. Either from your PC, in the case of portable sat navs; or via your phones GPRS connection, in the case of phone models. Always check the level of mapping that comes with your equipment in the first place. Is it up-to-date?
. Every couple of years Garmin will release a map update, which you can get on DVD or download - you've got to pay for it though!

The screen is the weak point of the 2000's.  I have one myself, and without warning a number of "lines" appeared on the screen, getting progressively worse over time.  
Perusing other forums, it seems we're not alone.  Unfortunately the only "solution" I've found thus far is to purchase a new head unit (eBay is a terrific source!).

Updated to 2008 maps, now I lost my local roads and town maps


Did you try zooming either "in" or "out" ??? Did you verify that the new maps are installed? Did you try doing a reset?

Pioneer avic x1


GPS has global coverage. I see your problem is sourcing the map of Australia because the x1 comes only with Europe maps on CD. there may be a possibility the S2 maps work on the x1. Try contacting Pioneer Australia http://www.pioneer.com.au/customerservice/
