To my knowledge, GPS on a tablet requires internet Access if it is not built into the tablet. You would need an application that would use the internet for GPS.

After using nagivator operation the response is Unable to launch application Problem ? How do I fix the problem?

This is a software problem that requires the Magellan GPS software on your GPS device to be updated the latest version, or sending the GPS device in for repairs and updates.

I would recommend sending the GPS device in for repairs since many people have had no luck updating the software when having the Unable to launch application error.

I installed garmin xt but the signal for gps is 0


The samsung B7320 takes a real long time to get the 3D fix thats required by the navigatin softwares.

Check the following
1) In manual for see how GPS needs to be configured. I would recommend you keep the settings to Intermediate GPS driver.
2) If the settings are done as per requirement, take your phone in an open space and then see if the signals are available. Be patient as the fix takes a real long time sometimes even few minutes.
3) If the problem of no signals persists you need to test if your GPS chipset is working. Use turbo GPS for this.

I can not get a GPS fix from any satellites on my Lowrance H20C GPS. Is there a trick to doing a hard reset or something to fix this? I am running software version 1.1.0 - Build LL2358E / JR1754C if that...

Hello thekernel,

In order for the GPS to get a fix it needs to receive telemetry information from three or GPS satellites. To do that it needs a clear view of the sky. Local geography such as mountains, hills, tall buildings and heavy forest can block the GPS's ability to receive satellite telemetry. The same thing can happen if you are trying to operate the unit indoors or inside of a vehicle without an external antenna. That's why most GPS receivers are installed at the lowest point in the car that has a clear view of the windshield and side windows - such a location provides the best view of the sky.

To test it your GPS, try using the device outside in a relatively open area with a clear view of the sky in all directions. It should acquire a satellite fix in about five minutes or less. If not, then the unit may have an a hardware or antenna failure that would require service.

My son is in Houston, Texas and cannot get his unit to turn on! He is trying to find out if your system is down or is his unit broken?

Hello nonjoe869,

Most GPS receivers do not require any network to operate. The satellites calculate their current location based on information received from Global Positioning Satellites. However those satellites operate continuously. The only way that the user would experience an "outage" is to be in a place without a clear view of the sky (underground, in a hardened building, etc.). Even then the GPS would still turn on and many functions would operate. It would just not be able to acquire satellites or issue location reports.

That said, if the GPS is part of another device (such a cell phone) that does require a network, the network status could have an impact on the GPS. A network outtage isn't going to prevent the device from actually turning on, however. If the GPS won't turn on at all it is likely a problem with the GPS or the power source.
