Garmin Nuvii 55 LM battery icon color meaning


There are usually 4 side by side green bars if the battery is fully charged. You can think of each bar as 25% power, so (4) bars is 100%, (3) bars is 75%, (2) bars is 50% and (1) bar is 25%.

Can you in put a pre selected route in to the Garmin Nuvi 1310 GPS so that i can have the route in turn by turn before i leave home


Sure and your doing the correct thing good thinking, always check the route before you go there are way to many ways to get there....

When you input the destination let it calculate then press the green bar on top where it says which way to turn.... it will then let you see which way its traveling, you can arrow down turn by turn or on bottom of screen press show map and give you the route highlighted with a green flag and checkered flag

Maestro 3100 will not change locations. I can be in Nashville, tn and it will have the screen on where I live in Ky.


the satellite are not linking up to your unit..

make sure it has a good charge, with the unit on press and hold the power button for 10 seconds after it shuts off. then press and hold the power button until it restarts.

take the unit outside in clear view of the open sky and let it aquire the saellites, indicated by the green bars in the top right of the map screen.

if they do not turn green, its not linking to the sats and you mgiht have another problem

let me know how you make out, so if it dont work, i can give you something else to try.

Show map does not show current location


im going to assume the satellites are not locked on.

look up at the top right corner of the map screen, and there should be atleast 4 green bars..if not, the satellites have not locked on to your position yet and wil show the last location you were at when i lost the satellites.

take the unit out side in clear view of the open sky and turn it on, then hold the power button for ten seconds. after it turns off, hold the power button till it starts. let it sit outside for up to 30 minutes to aquire the satellites.

if that fails, go HERE and download and install the latest update. just follow the install direction and it should fix it.

Magellan 3200 freeze


there is a little square at the top right corner of the screen. when you first turn it on, press that square to see the satelites it has locked on to, once a few of those turn green (meaning you are locked on by sattelites) see if the map starts workign again. Mine did the same thing and i thought is was broken, but depending on where you are, it can take up to 10 minutes for the map to start working (as it need that astelites to tell it where it is and what is around it) get it? so just try waiting before you put in a destination.

Triton 1500 GPS, I can't get any green bars to receive position.


You may have a few problems. First the GPS signal is controlled by a special GPS+ANT card in the 1500 and it may be defective. As for dates, etc. this could be caused by an other firmware update or a bad software file. Go to the Jungle Ghost Repair Center at www.jungleghost.com they have parts for the Triton units.
