  1. In driving view, tap the map to enter the main menu.
  2. Locate the "Preferences" icon and tap it.
  3. Cycle through the menu pages until you find the "Battery Saving Preferences" icon and tap it.
  4. First select if you'd like the screen to be dimmed between instructions or not.
  5. Next, select your device *not* to stay on when external power is lost.

Even when my gps is turned off it loses battery power. How can I get it to stay charged?

You could hard wire the car power adapter for your gps to a Constant 12 volt wire and ground to prevent your gps from losing it's charge. Else you will need to plug in the car charger for your gps and charge the battery a bit before you can use it.

I have a Android 2.1 Tablet PC X220 flytouch2 with GPS and Webcam and for some reason the power saver display option is basically turning off the screen instead of dimming it. so my problem is i can not...

Have you tried plugging it into the charger? If it's plugged in, the screen should dim but not turn completely off for at least 10 seconds. If it doesn't work, try covering the light sensor on the front of the tablet, so that the screen will brighten until you can change the backlight setting in Menu -> Settings -> Display.

Our magellan keeps turning off. the plug seem loose. could it be the cord or is it the battery and can it be changed

Check your power cord. You may be losing power at the plug. When plugged in it may be losing contact with the recepticle. The power indicator light initially comes on but, breaks contact and therefore stops charging the unit. If this is the case you can sometimes plug into an adapter and get a tighter fit.

No GPS connection

OK heres what it might be GPS units sometimes do their pown thing and get themselves lost as well as losing you. Pay back time lol.

Check that the battery is fully charged
Check that the BAUD rate and PORT are correctly set ( this often happens for reaso=ns unknown , but low battery or flat battery can do this) Check the port and baud rate in the manual or use the autosearch option.
The SIIRF chip has experieced a spik that has damaged the Chip ( you hope not!) it's an expensive fix.

TIP Dont plug the GPS intop Car power until AFTER engine is started.

Often better to charge it with an AC charger at least 6 hours prior to use

Can no longer drain tub unless I use a piece of plastic under the plug and use this to pull the plug out after the bath

At the base of the plug there is normally a stud with a thread on it to allow you to raise and lower the plug so that it seals or empties.

If that is not how your oulet is made then there is a lever behind the or to the side of the outlet underneath the sink, that also is adjustable on most sinks.

Sometimes it is via a spring clip which rusts and loses its grip

Clock reset and cant find satellite

I have had the same problem. I just notice the power switch on the bottom of the unit. I believe if this one is used it will not lose power. The other power button is probably for a standby mode.
