You may need to update the map on your unit.
First I would try this
It should have recognized where you are when turned on.
go back to the store or any store and see if the same unit in that store recognises the location, if yes yours is defective, exchange.
If no ( must be a really small rural town) check the manufacturer wesite to update the map for your town.

JVC KW-R920BTS. Clock is set to correct time. When connected to BlueTooth, clock jumps ahead one hour.


So the device connected via Bluetooth is advising the unit of the time because the device is calling the shots. One device is set for local time and the other is summer time. Change the setting on the Bluetooth phone or whatever to local.

Non one else has encountered this problem according to my search.

My google chrome crashed and everytime i click on it a message says DEP has closed it


To use hardware-enforced DEP, you must meet all the following conditions:
  1. The computer's processor must support hardware-enforced DEP.

    Many recent processors support hardware-enforced DEP. Both Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Intel Corporation have defined and shipped Windows-compatible architectures that are compatible with DEP. This processor support may be known as NX (no-execute) or XD (execute disable) technology. To determine whether your computer's processor supports hardware-enforced DEP, contact the manufacturer of your computer.
  2. Hardware-enforced DEP must be enabled in the BIOS.

    On some computers, you can disable processor support for hardware-enforced DEP in the BIOS. You must not disable this support. Depending on your computer manufacturer, the option to disable this support may be labeled "Data Execution Prevention," "XD," "Execute Disable," or "NX."
  3. The computer must have Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 installed.

    Note Both 32-bit versions and 64-bit versions of Windows support hardware-enforced DEP. Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 include all the features and components of Windows XP SP2.
  4. Hardware-enforced DEP must be enabled for programs on the computer.

    In 64-bit versions of Windows, hardware-enforced DEP is always enabled for 64-bit native programs. However, depending on your configuration, hardware-enforced DEP may be disabled for 32-bit programs.
For more information about DEP, about DEP configuration, and for a list of Windows Operating Systems that support hardware DEP, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:875352 A detailed description of the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) feature in Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005, and Windows Server 2003For information about how to configure memory protection in Windows XP with Service Pack 2, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

The city has the same four letters as another city and keeps coming up with the same wrong city. I type in Aust for Austintown but it immediately goes to another city that begins with Aust and I don't know...


ONLY TYPE IN AUS THEN SEARCH IT SHOULD LIST ALL WORDS STARTING WITH THE LETTERS YOU PUT IN, IF THAT DOES NOT WORK THEN ITS PROBERLY YOU NEED TO CHANGE COUNTRY OR STATE, OR AUSTIN TOWN IS NOT IN THE UNIT, GO TO 2 D VIEW AND ZOOM OUT OVER THE AREA THE PLACE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AND SEE IF IT THERE, IF SO CHECK SPELLING OR PLACE ARROW ON LOCATION YOU WANT AND PRESS GO

Window Vista problem??


If you receive this error message or encounter difficulties when attempting to launch Pro Tools using Windows Vista disabling DEP may solve the problem.

This option disables "Data Execution Prevention", a feature of Windows that can sometimes cause errors. This won’t harm anything, but also isn’t always necessary.

How to Disable DEP:

1. Click "Start"
2. Click "All Programs"
3. Click "Accessories"
4. Right Click on "Command Prompt"
5. Left click on "Run as Administrator"
6. Click the Allow button if it asks you for permission
7. Type or copy and paste this into the command prompt window:

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff


8. Hit enter and you should see the confirmation: Operation Completed Successfully
9. Reboot and DEP should be off.

If you would like to re-enable DEP enter the following into the command prompt window:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn

Hit enter and you should see the confirmation: Operation Completed Successfully. After restarting the computer, DEP will be re-enabled.

Restocking fees


Greetings ossining,

Best Buy ™ stores only have restocking fees on certain items. They are digital camcorders, digital cameras, notebook computers, radar detectors, projectors, mobile video, and gps units. The restocking fee is 15%. This applies if the unit has been opened.

I hope this helps!

Thank you,

Can't finish typing street address or city before choices are given I don't need


If the unit is not allowing you to continue to enter the street address, press the back button until you get to the city. Press "Search All" instead of the name of the city and try the address again. It could be that the unit has the address listed in a different city (it sometimes goes by how the post office lists the ZIP code). See if this helps. As for taking the unit apart to access the reset button, all you have to do is remove the faceplate. There is an intentation under the top. Insert your fingertip and pull it forward. Carefully remove the faceplate, and the reset button is on the right hand side.

Postal Code search?


Here's the quote from the Nuvi 350 Users Manual:

Quote 1 (page 7):

"You can search for a postal code. Enter the postal code instead of the city name."

Quote 2 (page 7):

"2. Select the region, city or postal code, when prompted.

Note: There never appears to be an occasion when I'm prompted to specifically enter a postal code, just a city. So I naturally do as instructed in quote 1 above.

Ideas?
