You may need to use the hard reset to make the quick gps connection working. but you will lost all ur program or data, including smart nav or tom tom. if you ready want to use the hard reset, remember to download smart nav or tomtom program. or you will end out no map in your system. good luck

The sofware updates are available, but I believe that they may not be compatable with all versions of Global Locate's software. I am using V1.19. My unit works OK from about 12:00 till about 22:00 GMT but starting any GPS software outside of those times leads to dissappointment. I have not tried it but I believe that if I start say, Tom Tom at 21:00 and kept it running all would be OK, but I think that battery life would be compremised

You need to enable GPRS. Preferably the plan with unlimited download as the GPS file (4 files) need to be refreshed every 2 days. set it to automatic download.

The GPS software was managed by Global Locate the company has been bought out by another manufacturer so the server and driver updates are no longer supported ! You'll just have to switch off the auto update feature !

There are 2 ways to downlaod the files, GPRS or internet
1. click on the quick gps connetion icon, select setting.
2. select setting, then check the enable update and initial GPRS
3. click on icon and select download, it will connect to date service and download the files.

step 1 and 2 above
3. click icon select download while it on cradle.

also install the quick gps utility on pc, and add the quick qps connection into activesync list. each time you synchronize PDA the file will get updated.
