Make sure the time and date shown in the device is correct, also check that the date and time is correct in your device.

    If the date and time are correct in both devices try updateing the software in the gps



    from here

    http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdat...



    You will most likely have to set up the device again after the update, I may be wrong.



    If a update didn't solve the problem check if there is updated version of the pc software available

    If the problem still isn't solved drop me a comment and Il look into it more.

Owners manuel for Navman MY50T


Hi Raymond,

You can download a free copy of your owner's manual on this page:
gps-devices/user-guides/">http://www.navman.com.au/car-gps-devices/user-guides/

If you need to update your maps, check this site for downloading instructions and downloadable ISO files for installing the more current maps. They may or may not be free, depending on your previous map purchases. They also sell the upgrade software, but its a little pricey. They are located in Australia.

Upgrading Maps with Instructions:
gps-devices/mapping/">http://www.navman.com.au/car-gps-devices/mapping/

I hope this gives you the info you need. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

The date that my Nuvi operates on is incorrect


Nuvi 200 - trying to reset the date using the method suggested by Kevin A (and in a cellar) and after two hours the Nuvi was still "locating satellites". Am I doing something wrong?!

My main problem, however, is that having loaded a copy of the latest European maps onto the card used in the device, when going through the "where to" routine I am asked to enter State/Province. Living in the UK this is a little difficult as there is no answer I can give that the unit will recognise! Any ideas?

Magellan roadmate 1430 calibration is wrong


try a hard reset again using a paper clip, insert it in the little pin hole on the side to reset the unit. if that fails, get the 3.12 update (if you havent already) off the magellan site..you must register the unit with magellan before you can download the update.

Garmin Etrex Vista Date problem


Thanks to a hint from a user on another web forum, I have found a fix, at least for now.

Specifically, a normal "master rest" on the eTrex Vista is accomplished by holding down the "Page" button and "Enter" (i.e. the click stick) while powering up. You are prompted that a full reset will occur, and after confirming, the machine is reset. However, in my case, this achieved a full reset, but did not fix the date problem.

However, the undocumented "super master reset" on the eTrex Vista is achieved by simultaneously holding down the "Page, "Enter" and "Find" buttons while powering up. You have to hold all buttons in for about 5 to 7 seconds, and you DON'T get the warning message, but when the machine finally restarts, it is fully reset. After acquiring a satellite fix (took several minutes) - lo and behold - my time AND date both seem to be correct!

Oddly, neither Garmin tech support nor the local reseller seemed to know about this method of REALLY resetting the machine - I will pass on the information to them, for future reference.

The link which documents the "super master reset" procedure is here: http://www.gpsinformation.org/dale/secret.htm#reset

Hope this might also help other eTrex Vista owners who are experiencing the same date problem.
