Sounds like the memory battery ran low. Did you get a "Memory battery low" warning message when you switched it on? If so then that confirms it, and I'm afraid your waypoints are lost.

As for the memory battery it will take on some charge if you just put in fresh AA batteries. How much charge depends on the age of the GPS, mine is over 10 years old and the memory cell is pretty much dead now.

Grmin may or may not replace the cell for you depeniding on the age of the device. If you want to do it yourself it's a very fidldy job requiring some expertise with a fine pointied solderign iron. The case is held together with solicone sealant aroung the joining edges - there are no plastic catches - one piece of the case has a sort of trough around the edge that the other piece/side slots into and the trough was fileld with silicone sealant and the two pieces sandwiched together. It's not a very strong glue though so it can be prised apart with a fine knife and patience.

Lost my photos on iphone 5


Slim chance, but if they were important to you, you could try this.

It won't try to recover photos from your phone because iPhone 5 is not supported yet, but you can try letting it recover them from the iTunes backup file even though they were not successfully backed up.


I don't think there are many or any other options, so depending on how important they are to you, you can try it.

Unfortunately the answer is no. When the Garmin 12 was being made there was no facility for recovering any deleted waypoints.

Can you recover deleted files from the Olympus Recorder VN-4100PC? also, one of my files is unable to play. any way of recovering it?


YES, it is definitely possible to recover such kind of files deleted from your Olympus recorder.

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or audio with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.

Then connect your recorder to a PC with a recovery program installed. Photo Recovery Software (also recover Voice memos, audio and video files) is right what you need to use if you are running Windows. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.

But you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP. I hope this will help. Best regards!

I have a garmin gps 12--s/n 35854358. No auto-locate?


If you haven't used the gps for a while they can try to operate with the incorrect catalog or time. Unless these are both correct it gets lost. Usually you can correct this with a forced reset. There is also a update for this unit which also forces the update.
http://www8.garmin.com/products/gps12/download.html
The data cable sort of screws on and makes contact with 4 pins. This is the little round connector. It does both power and data. The cable is a wee bit pricey from Garmin but you can make them or just get one from ebay.
The reset usually wipes out any saved routes poi's etc so using the data cable will save all of those. To reset the 12 I believe you hold the lower right corner of the screen and then power it on to reset. Then you need to let it rub until it gets the new data which can take 5-50 minutes. Makes sure your batteries are good.
I'd recommend the data cable route (use a 'gasp' non garmin cheap cable) and upload the update at the same time and you should be good to go try and get lost again.

Retrieve deleted voicemail messages on iphone


Though iPhone uses quite a different storage mechanism, still you can recover deleted or lost data (such as text messages, voice mail, contacts, photos etc) with a third party specific iPhone data recovery software called Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery. I used it to recover deleted videos from iPhone 4s and it worked.
You can give it a shot! Download it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/iphone-data-recovery.html
Here is a tutorial to guide you recover your voice mails:

Lost destination after saving it


Sounds like the internal memory battery is run down - it's charged from the AA's. Usually does not recover. Battery (the VL1220) is shown here: http://www.panasonic.com/industrial/battery/oem/chem/lith/vana.htm.

It' easily replaced once the case is open but requires a steady hand with a fine tip soldering iron. Local story started by me here.

Sealing the case up again is very fiddly - hard to make a tidy job with silicone.
