Hi danpro,

You may try to reset your system (Polaroid MGM 0550) to put it back into gps. You can follow the following steps I have below:

To reset GPS.

1. Go to navigation mode.
2. Press and hold the map button below the display for 5 seconds. Then the GPS resets.
3. Verify that the GPS system is turned on. Touch Menu, Map Options, Settings, GPS Signal.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Why does my Nextar gps system takes foprever to load when turn on


If it is running Win CE then it is VERY old. The GPS is probably failing to see the satelites. Probably time to replace it.

My gps need install windows ce but install because I connect the cable to the computer but the computer gives unknown device message


If you GPS is at the point of needing windows CE installed then it is in a bad way. This is not done in the normal way on the Mitac Mio. It is setup using and SD cardspecific keys assigned by mitac to perform only a minimum of functions for its GPS hardware.LikeRESET +POWER then selecting different options specific to the GPS

Then getting maps on it is also different from a straight install. I suggest you contact MIO and have them reinstall Win CE and the maps for you before you compromise it totally so that it cannot be undone

Screen is all white. How can I fix? Reset button not the answer


If you unit has been sitting in the sun you may have burned out the screen or th overheated the ROM tha contains the Windows CE operating system. The only real solution to this problem is to send the unit to Nextar for either a repair by swapping out the ROM or get into their exchange program and get another unit with an updated map.

Windows CE Core 5 is the operating system for most portable CPU controlled units. GPS units included.

InVion 4v106 not booting up, Alturion GPS error message!


It is not a matter of just copying the GPs map program to the card. You have somehow deleted the Invion Formatting back to Windows CE.

Special programs are used to get the invion program written into WinCE and then to apply the Icons specific to your GPS like PHOTOS and VIDEO etc.

These programs are installed using the reset and on buttons to get them to boot much like haveing a CD boot up other than the HDD The process of reinstating these to get the maps on and working is about 45 minutes and then the maps can be loaded. At $120 an hour the $40 fee is cheap, so if you want your GPS to work i would take up the offer
