    Unit is unreliable at start up. Most times it will not advance past the screen with road and finger pointing

You might want to try:

-- plug to the electrical charger, reset for 15+ secs
-- connect to the computer, download Tomtom app and try updating the application

I had a 2006 purchased go 700 and did the above and it is working much better with latest application.

Programming the cn101a timer

CN101A programmable weekly digital timer
C = Master Clear, erases all program settings and current day/time.
C/R = Control/Reset, used to access programming mode and to clear individual programs.
You must press and hold this button for approximately 4 seconds to enter programming mode if there is a lower case "a" to the left of the time display. The system will revert back to active mode (with the lower case "a" to the left of the time display) after 30 seconds with no buttons pressed.
If this button is momentarily pressed while viewing a program, that program will be erased, but ONLY the On or Off program that is being viewed will be reset. The corresponding On or Off program in that cycle will NOT be reset.
Clock = In programming mode, this button is held depressed at the same time as one of the D+, H+, or M+ buttons to set the current day and time. When editing the programs, this button is used to exit when done.
P = Program select, each press will advance through the On and Off programs (presets). There are 16 On/Off cycles available (1 On, 1 Off, 2 On, 2 Off, ... 16 On, 16 Off).
D+ = Used to change the day when setting the time, or day(s) when changing a program.
When changing a program,
the following 15 different day combinations are available using the "D+" button.
H+ = used to change the hours when setting the time or a program.
M+ = used to change the minutes when setting the time or a program.
Manual = This button will cycle the output relay from AUTO to Manual OFF, back to AUTO, then to Manual ON, and finally back to AUTO. Programming mode must first be accessed using the C/R button to use the Manual feature. The manual On or Off settings will override all programs until switched back to AUTO.
There is a Lithium Ion battery which is intended to keep the clock going for up to 3 years during loss of external power, but the output relay will not work on internal battery power.

You can hard reset the phone to reinstall the firmware. There are two methods but you will loss the contacts and messages etc.
1. Power on the phone. Dial *#7370# from phone. It asks for reset. Press yes. The phone will be formatted to default. Enter you code when it asks. The default code is 12345

2. Other method to hard reset is four finger reset. dushy4.jpg
To format, switch off the phone. Then press "Green Key", 3 key. "*" Key and press the power button as shown in the picture. Remember, hold them at the same time. Your phone will be formatted

Need to reset nuvi 715, where is reset button


There is no dedicated reset button on this unit. If the unit is freezing up or causing other problems a reset is achieved by doing the following

1) With the unit turned off - slide the power button to the left and hold it there for 8 seconds or more.

2) Power the unit back on.

The unit will be reset.

You can also clear all user data by holding your finger in the lower right corner of the screen and at the same time power the unit on.

Keep your finger touching the screen until a confirmation message appears. Touch Yes to clear the data.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Won't acquire satelite

I had to try this several times before the reset screen appeared but it worked. With the unit unplugged, press your index finger on the very bottom of the right hand side of the screen and power the unit on. When it comes on release the power button. Then answer the questions. Say "yes" to reset. My updated maps were still there but my address' were gone. No big thing. I tried using my thumb but it didn't work. I guess it was too big, had to use my index finger. I went outside and it acquired the satellites within minutes.

Try the reset, and if that fails, download the web updater from the garmin site and try that route.

Master reset will erase all way points or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.
  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers ON
    • You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes

PS3 no picture on screen. Borrowed Unit from a friend.

If the TV was originally set up on an HDTV via HDMI cables you'll have to reset the video/audio outputs on the PS3. When you turn the PS3 on hold your finger down on the button until it beeps a second time, then remove your finger and let the console restart. That should reset the PS3's video output.
