Could be a hardware issue, although worth checking whether you've changed any setting to stop it from connecting to the internet when to start the GPS ... the Assisted GPS needs to connect via GPRS (or 3G) and exchange approx 10K of data in order to determine which cell it's in (to speed up finding the satellites, apparently).

With the network (GPRS or 3G, but not WiFi) connection, it typically takes just a few seconds to get a GPS fix ... without this, it can take minutes (perhaps 10 minutes or more while at a stand-still ... or maybe never if you're already on the move).

For info, check settings in: Tools --> Settings --> General --> Positioning ... I have the following settings (here in the UK):

Positioning methods
- Bluetooth GPS: NOT ticked
- Assisted GPS: Ticked
- Integrated GPS: Ticked
- Network based: Ticked

Positioning Server
- Access point: Contract internet
- Server address: supl.nokia.com

How do i get rid of the shade when i press graph on my ti 84 plus graphing calculator


Press the Y= key. Move to the equation in question, then press left-arrow repeatedly until the cursor is at the far end of the line. Press ENTER repeatedly to cycle through the different graph styles. The default is the four dots in a diagonal line from upper-left to lower-right.

Will not plot route in mexico


I assume it works ok in the U.S., and most of Mexico. Assuming that, it will be one of two things. 1. Either the locations are not programmed into their software, or you need an update to your GPS. My guess is that they haven't updated yet. I would message Tom Tom to let them know your concerns- sometimes the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Good luck, know it's aggravating.

How I know the red dot is working ok, is


This is a 60mm telescope not much bigger than a 10x50mm pair of binoculars. Your maximum magnification will be about 100 power. Yes I know they said 200-300 power on the box. This was a lie.

Do not use the 2x barlow. Probably be just too much magnification. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope; then try the same eyepiece with the 1.5x barlow. That is probably all the magnification the scope can handle.

Stars are always pinpoint light sources, no matter how large the telescope. They are hundreds or thousands of light years away.

The "red dot" should be pointed at exactly the same spot as what is in the eyepiece. Center a bright star in the eyepiece, then without moving the telescope... center the red dot on the star. Now you can use the red dot to POINT the telescope exactly to a sky object.

If I put a street name in, like Ave F or a rural address, like FM 345, my gps says "address not found". Any help would be appreciated.


Some GPS require the letter of the street first. Also most roads, even those with route numbers have a name.

Mapping starting point to destination.


From the "Where To" menu choose Settings > Navigation > Route Preference > This is where you can choose a Faster Time or Shorter Distance and also Off Road. Off Road is used to create a "Straight line" or "Direct Route" This option will NOT follow the roads.

Most will use Fastest and also make sure the Vehicle type is correct.

Tomtom gets lost.


I think that you just continued the wrong way. If you would follow the red line that is the way you should go. If you don't, then it will reset from where YOU went which was not the correct way to try to find you a new way to where you are going from where you have gone off on the wrong street. That has happened to me and it is only when I go the wrong way. I hope that helps..
