    Mine does the same thing. Help!!

    After initializing, the unit will zoom in but not back out. Then, when changing to another screen, it will not go back to map page. ESC key intermittent, tried factory reset, which does not resolve the problem. Tried new batteries and clearing memory. No joy. Unit is effectively trashed. Unit has not been in extreme temps or moisture.

I had the same problem. took unit apart and used a white rubber eraser on the button contacts and also on the rubber back of the button. Cleaning the rubber back of the button seemed to be the most important part because prior cleaning of just circuit board did not seem to have any effect. Button works fine now to my surprise. I suggest cleaning the rubber back of all buttons to avoid repeating process of having to take unit apart twice

My lowrance elite 5 hdi won't go past the "elite lowrance" screen when you turn it on. Its only 2 weeks old!?


Make sure that your battery is fully charged. Try a hard reset if it still won't start up.
This will erase all user information on the device, so you will have to set it up again.
With the unit off, press and hold the zoom in (+) zoom out (-) and power buttons. Release the buttons when the map displays.

HI I have Zumo 550 when I first switch it it comes up with can't maps press OK you press OK then starts to work but starts at 1am on the clock and in night time mode after awhile it goes to the right time...


If your zumo 400 or 500 series will not power on, or performs strangely after powering up, follow the steps (described on the Garmin website) below to perform a soft reset:
  1. Connect the zumo to a power source such as a computer or AC outlet
  2. Hold the zoom (+) and ON buttons at the same time for five seconds
  3. If this does not restore power, remove the battery for five seconds
  4. Place the battery back in the zumo
The zumo will now power on. Because the battery may deplete while the zumo is locked up, it is ideal to leave the zumo connected to power to allow it time to charge.
Once the battery has charged, follow the steps on the Garmin site to update the operating software in the zumo. (just copy this link to get there https://buy.garmin.com/support/searchSupport/case.faces?caseId={8576ba20-e948-11dc-d6fc-000000000000} )

Good luck,
Michael

I know the GPS coordinates of a place, I want to be. How do I enter those to start finding a route from where I am?


I am assuming this is a Quest or Quest2 GPS.
Using the map screen use the larger 4way "navigation" button on the front panel and cursor the screen pointer to the location you would like to save. You may need to zoom in on the location. At the bottom of the screen you will see the "lat/long" displayed. The further you "zoom in" the more precise you can get with the "lat/long". Once you have the pointer at your desired coordinates, hit the "OK" button. This will bring up an address or some other feature name. If there are multiple choices, simply pick the one that is most appropriate and again his "OK". At the bottom of the screen you will see 3 "buttons" (save, find near, and route to). Select "save". Now you will see a screen with several windows that contain the lat/long data, perhaps an address, a map icon, and the name you selected in the earlier screen. You can again use the large 4 way "navigation" button on the front panel to switch between the displayed fields. This will allow you to select a map icon such as a house, store, marina, or whatever. You can then use the "nav" button to select the lat/long window and make any final adjustments to the lat/long data. You can also move the cursor up to the waypoint name box and change it to whatever you prefer. Once you have all of the data fields to your preference on this page, you can use the "nav" button to cursor down to "OK" at eh bottom of the screen and then hit the "OK" button on the front panel. The waypoint should be stored with the correct data in the GPS.

I think I am being thick. I have a tom tom go 920 t and I cant find the maps of north america only the england and europe ones what am I doing wrong as it should be pre loaded?? thank you xx


Zoom waaaaay out and look over here ;-]

I've run into that myself and the easiest way is actually to search for a known adress on the map. You can browse but it takes longer as you do zoom out and scroll and then zoom and scroll until you stay on the area. I usually just google up a building where I want to look and search for that address and go from there. At that point you can add poi's and easily come back to the map area..

Will not zoom in or out magellan exp. 200


problem may be with the contacts on the buttons. I experienced the same problem. To resolve the problem I used aluminum backed tape (exhaust repair tape) and cut some very small pieces to apply to the contact surface of the buttons. Works great!
I had tried to clean the contact points with rubbing alcohol. Did not solve the problem.

at the user menu press the "-" zoom out key the "+" zoom in key and the repeat button which is on top of your unit. Once your in the "hidden" menu, select reset user data.. your unit will reset and everything will be clean. If your trying to delete specific addresses I would use software to sync up and explore your MRM's files.

Zoom in and out buttons not working properly


Unfortunately, this is a problem with the keys and their contacts with the circuit board. I have had to return mine a couple of times to get this repaired. If you're out of warranty, they have a trade-up program which is a better deal than repairing the unit.
