GPS Repair Problems? Ask a GPS Technician for Answers ASAP
Just delete 'recently found' and then press 'where am I'
I'm not clear what you mean "delete recently found." Delete it from where?
Do you see 'recently found' addresses?
These are in a folder. Just try and press "where am I'
the on screen menu offers these choice: address, points of interest, previous, address book, intersection, city center. Those are the only choices
"Where am I" is not one of the options
give me a minute..
i have previous destinations. should I delete all of the addresses on it?
Yes, then look at page 25
of the manual. give me a moment. It's not here by my desk
I gave you a link for it above
I have the user handbook; is that the same thing?
it's fewer than 25 pages. it's not the same
no, it's 42
is there a way to reboot this. I've already turned it on and off several times. I used to have a GPS device that, if you stuck a pen in an opening, reset all the readings.
yes, that's a possibility but you loose your POI's and info you have saved.
still trying to resolve the gps issue. normally when I hit "menu" I get plenty of choices. but now it's only the six i previously mentioned. now is there a way to reboot this, other than cutting off and restoring the power?
I would shut it down and reboot
there is usually a feature, show map. now it is missing
See what you get when it comes back on...
just a map showing a place where i am currently not. about 15-20 miles away; it's as though it's somehow imprinted an earlier location.
i've been trying to locate a reset button. is there one on this machine?
Let me check...
1. Insert a micro SD card in your Magellan RoadMate receiver.2. From the Main Menu screen, tap the Settings icon.3. Tap Backup and Restore.• Tap Backup My Data to save your user data and settings on the inserted micro SD card.• Tap Restore Saved Data to overwrite your user data and setting with a previous backup available on theinserted micro SD card.• Tap Restore All Default Settings to reset all settings to their factory defaults.
wait, did a micro SD card come with this device?
Look and see if it has one, normally they do not
Do you have a SD card you can put in it?
no, i guess we're at a dead end then
Pick up a SD card, cheap now days
Do a restore and it will all come back.
can i print out this dialogue box?
oh, i guess i could highlight and post it elsewhere. give me a sec
Just highlight all the text and then 'copy'
then paste to word
ok, I guess I'll hit accept and let you get on with the next client. have a good night
