  • This may not fix the problem but here are some tips that will help. When it is "just hanging" it is trying to receive a satellite signal. These are helpful tips to receiving that signal.
  1. Make sure you are outside and in the open. This is a phone and while it has GPS functions you have to be in the most optimal position.
  2. GPS units that work well have an antenna made to receive satellite signals faster than the phone antenna.
  3. Make sure you are standing still and not driving or walking fast. You have to give the satellites time to lock in on your position.
  4. Bad weather or even an overcast can effect satellites transmissions.
  5. Satellites move around and sometimes they are temporary a bit out of range.
  6. If a signal is not found try again a bit later and see if the satellites signals are being received better.

My mio 320 is stuck on transfer mode when connected to charger it thinks its connected to computer


I've had a lot of issues w/ the operation of my MIO C320, including this problem ... but ONLY whenever I tried using any other mini-USB cords (like from my phone or Garmin GPS chargers), with my MIO C320. There's something unique about the mini-USB pin-out configuration MIO uses that allows you to either charge or update their units (using the transfer function), using MIO's supplied mini-USB cables. (I've labeled my MIO cord as "MIO GPS", on a piece of masking tape wrapped around the cord.) I'm trying to recall whether the MIO's cords worked properly w/ all of my other devices, and I can't think of any that did NOT function properly. So, maybe you could experiment and - if that's the case w/ your devices also - avoid further issues by keeping JUST the MIO's charger in your vehicle?. Sorry this is so late, but I hope it helps! Cheers, The Foxxx

When i watch video in my c3 that time my mobile hang.


Yes, What you said was absolutely right. It has the hanging problem whenever one plays the video or tries to use the camera.

But there is a good news for you friend!.

I tried to update the software and successfully updated. I too was facing the hanging problem. Whenever I use the camera or the media player to play the videos the phone was hanging a lot. I was facing exactly the same problem just like yours. So don't you worry! You can feel easy now!

Now after the software updatation, the problem got solved. Now the latest software update version V 07.20 is available. If any one is facing the similar problem of phone getting hanged, you can update the software using the gprs service.

Nokia PC suite has also got updated. Now the latest version 3.0.0.284 is available. Those who use the Pc suite for browsing the internet using the nokia phones can update the pc suite.

What is satellite icon on motorola karma


It irepresents the GPS function. It is always visible on the screen to let the user aware that the phone has GPS capability. It is in gray when the GPS is not in use. If a GPS Application (e.g. AT&T Navigator) is launched, the icon flashes and changes its colors. E.g. it will show in green whenever it is fixed to satellites.

Hands free feature


I had the same problem : seems that the reason for this, is a double (or multiple) input in the phonebook with the same name : whenever the phone tries to send the contents of the phonebook to the car GPS, it detects the "double" (or multiple) input(s) and does not know what to do with it. Thus the phone blocks ("hangs") and reboots itself. A simple remedy for this : just remove the double input(s) from the phonebook and the problem will be solved.

Always "Waiting for GPS Signal"


The waiting for signal message just means it can’t get satellite reception where you are. you most likely need to utlize the Optional external GPS antenna. This is a common problem in the midwest and southwestern states. if this has happened since you bought it. the internal antenna couldve come loose. Which means you may have got a defective unit from the factory. But my guess is you just need to utilize the external antenna.


its like thinking of a cell phone and how some people dont always get a signal. now in gps it needs 3x the signal. with 1/8th of the communications satellites cell phones have.
so as more and more people get tom toms the harder it is for each unit to work, and less signal can be partitioned to your unit at the time of use. where as cell phones only need 2 towers, GPS needs 4 satellites.
