Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

5 Answers

Saving Directions I travelled to a location and saved that location. When I tried to travel the same way the next time, the GPS still tried to send me away from the original travelled route. Is there a way to save a travelled route when you did not follow the suggested GPS route completetly?

    I know how to find the route I traveled but the GPS still tries to send me off the original route I used and changed as I traveled.

  • maugly38 Aug 20, 2008

    What is the point of saving a destination if you still need other means ie maps, directions to find the best route?

  • maugly38 Aug 21, 2008

    I don't like the solution but at least i now know that I cannot save the directions.
    thank you!

Sorry to say but there's no way that you can save it as your favorite route , that's why you cannot save it...

    because what the gps does is it will locate the best router that you can take , even if you want to use another router for your destination...

I cannot reset the home location. It is now Massachusetts it keeps Illinois as the starting location. What do I Do?


Hello,

The GPS knows where it is as long as you have locked satellites, if you have traveled over a considerable distance the GPS may need some time to find the constellation so it can provide location. The GPS may take up to 20-30 minutes to lock satellites after traveling, so you may have to leave the GPS in a stationary position powered on for around that long.

Hope this helps!

Tip

GPS Devices Are Helpful to a Point


The last time you used your GPS device, did it lead you down the longest path? Did you enjoy traveling the scenic route to Massachusettes through downtown Bronx, New York during rush hour? Did you think the GPS device was going to always give you perfect directions?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, here are just a few common sense tips to using GPS devices:

1-Remember that the GPS device is not your Aunt Lulu who has lived in the area for 75 years and knows all the greatest and safeste shortcuts. It cannot think like a human can think. It is a programmed computer device.

2-Got pot holes? Assuming that your GPS device will take you to your end destination using the quickest and least "pot holiest" roadways might be a mistake. The darned thing has no ability to see what the roadways look like. So, look out for potholes instead of throwing a temper tantrum at the GPS device if your car gets swallowed up in a black energy vortex in a huge, unexpected pot hole.

3-Because your GPS device is a non-thinking creation, assume it will take you on the route programmed in to it. Think about this. A GPS device's programming may be pre-disposed to direct you to pass by an advertiser's branch location.

For example, perhaps the route you travel according to the address you type in passes by all the K-Marts or Targets or WalMarts. For this reason, consider also bringing along an atlas so you can make an informed decision about your travel route.

Compare the GPS suggested route with a route printed on a map atlas. Which is the shorter of the two routes? Which is the safest of the two routes? Do you know the area through which you will be traveling? Do you think you can hold responsible a non-thinking GPS device for your safety?

If you'd like to know about safe places to travel, consider asking the local chamber of commerces found in the various cities on the route before you actually travel to your end destination. Doing this can be a smart move instead of basing your travel routes solely on the directions of the non-thinking GPS device.

The first time my friend and I used a GPS device, we had no idea what we were doing and wound up at our destination 4 hours later than many people in our group. When my friend and I shared the story with an experienced GPS user he said, "Yeah, that happened to me. After that first time, I learned to also bring an atlas. Thinking your trip through and referring to a printed map can save wear and tear on your nerves, your gas budget and on your stress levels."

I agree! Think about the SUGGESTION your GPS device is offering to you. If you imagine that it's sending you on a wild goose chase, get off the goose and put your nose into the atlas.

Happy traveling!

My gps works up to the point that it cannot locate satellites. It asks if I have travelled 100 miles or more and whenI hit no, it goes back to searching for satellites with no luck. Is that a fixable...


Try answering yes. If the original location has been lost due to battery replacement etc, These devices go to a home location which may be anywhere to begin looking for the satelites. It could take 30 minutes or more to locate itself. Just turn it on and let it look for a long time.

I have a tomtom go 920 my sreen turns sometimes black after it flickers but it stil tells me where to go ! Is there something loose insite ?


The TomTom has a power-saving scheme. If enabled, the screen may be dimmed or turned off if you are travelling straight ahead and no left or right turns are imminent. It will come back when instructions are given.
Check the preferences and look for battery power-saving.

I also have a Magellan Triton 300 and I can not change it to my time zone.. how can I change it?


From the user manual at http://www.magellangps.com/assets/manuals/MagellanTriton_300_400_500_UserManual.pdf
it says:
Setting the Time Zone
The time and date information will be computed from information from the GPS satellites so there is
no requirement for you to input any time or date information. However, to make the time accurate
for your location you must select the correct time zone.
1. From the Map screen press MENU.
2. Select View.
3. Select Settings.
4. Scroll down and select Date & Time.
5. Select the Time Zone field.
Press button
momentarily
Fundamentals

6. From the drop-down menu, select your current time zone. (Time zones are not changed
automatically when travelling. If you travel to an area with a different time zone, you will
need to change it here for accurate time information.)
7. Repeat the process for the Daylight Savings field.
8. Press ESC when done.

How to set the current time.time did not change when we turn the clock back one hour.


either your 1440 was never set to include daylight saving time or the unit was reset at some point.

the time is automatically set once you choose your time zone and if you observe daylight saving time, you must check that box..

go to the main menu, then system option and click on the time zone tab, then select your time zone and check off the little box for daylight saving time.
