    Wireless internet was connected. No web site open at time of connecting gps to computer.



    Regards Kevin

    Thanks,



    As it has a built in battery I guess if I leave it on until the screen runs it flat and then plug it in to my car and give it a go.

    Thanks again

    Hello again,



    The reset did not work and I ran the battery flat and tried in the car to no avail.



    What about if I had my modem turned off at the time of the incident as sometimes I do ?



    Regards



    Kevin

    Well that explains the problem. Your GPS is made to automatically update itself whenever it is connected to internet and it was in the process of updating itself and you interrupted the update in between by removing it from the computer. Now you have to reset it in order to get it again in working condition. Remove battery for 5 minutes and then insert the battery and start gps.

    At the back of the GPS look for a small hole with reset or rst written on it. Just press it for 15 seconds with a blunt object and reset your gps.

    let me know if that reset helps or else will try another method.

Uniden Trax 5000 - unable to use Trax Central


Hi,
Had the same problem with Trax Central software. Ended up successfully using Naviextras Toolbox application. https://www.naviextras.com/shop/portal/downloads
Still don't know what, if any, extras on the Trax Central software. I tried to get it to run on 3 XP boxes and 2 Windows 7 boxes. Gave up in disgust. Good one Uniden.

Can I manually enter gps coordinates into uniden trax_430 gps


The seller LIED! here is the review where it says this feature was disbled.
Both the Trax 436 and 430 have a 4.3 inch widescreen making it easier to see the navigation display than with smaller 3.5 inch units. As there is only a single button (on/off) on the device, all data entry through pressing the touchscreen display. There is predictive text to help with some entry fields. One of the interesting design features alluded to is Safety Mode which disables the touch screen above 10km/h to ensure the driver has their attention on the road ahead.

A second of the interesting design features noted is the simple and advanced navigation interface modes. It makes a lot of sense to disable some more advanced functions, such as navigation to a GPS coordinate, in order to make a simpler, less cluttered menu structure for the average user. Incorporating text-to-speech capability, the Trax units’ voice navigation instructions include street names making it simpler to check one is on track without having to glance away from the road to the GPS unit display.

heres the link for more info

Uniden trax 430 frozen


I have had a similiar problem with my Trax 430. The screen freezes at the system shut down stage. I have to plug it into the computer via the USB cable. It then recognizes the computer and attempts to do an USB update. Then just unplug it. It should work but not a practical solution when you are driving about.
