Power On/Off and Key Lock/Unlock - Press the Power button located at the top right of the Sky Caddie to power on/off or to lock/unlock the keypad. Upon pressing the Power button you are prompted to choose either "Off" (Left Soft Key) to power off the device or "Lock" (Right Soft Key) to lock the keypad. To unlock the keypad, select 'Unlock" by pressing the Right Soft Key, then choose "Yes".
This is normal, this come straight of the satellite. To speed up process or bypass, reboot system. To Manually reboot this model, turn unit off like normal. Then when turning on, keep button down as it fires up, DO NOT release on button, keep it down until all fires up and even about 10 seconds passed, then let go. This reboots it and cleans up a lot of ****. Thanks Mike. Please if this helps, please give me 4 thumbs up, to help me and others.
if that dont work, turn it off again fully charge it then reboot it manually again. This should do it!
One suggestion is to plug the Tom Tom using the temporary power cord to you home circuit (not the power source from the car). That worked for me. Sometime the Tom Tom shuts down when left in the hot car requiring a reset. Then the best way is to plug in at home and restart. Try it, otherwise I can't help.
Ah ha, someone decided to play a little joke with your Garmin. (I've done the same with someone else's cell phone; set it to Portugese and they'll search for days to correct it!) Fortunately, all of the Garmins I've played with are typically icon driven menus. I'll assume you touched the wrench icon in the lower right corner to get into the setup display. From there, you should see icons for 'Map', 'System', 'Time', etc. If you don't see the 'Language' icon, use the down arrow to go to the next screen. If that doesn't help, I would do a factory reset and that should take you back to the factory settings.
I had the same problem. On the left side is the reset button. Press it with a pin, it will reset (but not lose any data), and it will start over in your new GPS location. You also might want to try downloading the new firmware (2.36), which is available on their website.
Since I am downloading it (104Mb), I don't know if it will fix the situation, but we shall see!
I experienced the same problem about acquiring satellite signal even when it's a clear sunny day. After 30 mintues, it was still searching!
The unit appeared to have "stuck" in this acquiring mode. The following worked for me:
1) open the GPS antenna
2) press the bottom left screen while holding the power button to turn the unit on
3) enter maintenace mode
4) select diagnostics
5) clear error report, do NOT clear any user data
6) restart unit the usual way
My GPS 350 was able to acquire satellite signal in less than 1 minute after the above steps were taken.
