GPS receiver in phone occasionally gives bizarre coordinates by NY
I've just got a Samsung Galaxy SII phone which has a built-in GPS receiver. It's got both the built-in (Google) Maps application and Viewranger which I've installed. When I went out for a walk yesterday (open countryside near a reservoir and dam, with no tall buildings or deep ravines nearby!) I noticed that the phone, which had tracked the route perfectly in the car, started alternating...

Variation in speed reported by GPS by NY
Am I correct in understanding that GPS receivers calculate the speed of the receiver (eg when travelling in a moving vehicle) by calculating the distance moved between one GPS reading and the next? The timestamp of each sample is accurate to the nearest second and the distance readings will be accurate to around 5 - 50 m (typically, depending on DOP at the time). Does this explain why when...

TomTom battery life, memory loss --- improved? by Adam Funk
Hi, everyone. A few years ago we got a TomTom Go 530. The user interface is fine, but we've had three problems with it. 1. The battery life is the worst I've ever seen for a rechargeable device. If we leave it unused for two weeks, it goes completely flat. (Yes, we did charge it fully as soon as we opened the box, before pushing the power button.)

Bad Attitude at TomTom? by UK Traveller
On 21 November I respond to a reminder to renew 1 year's subscription to "Speed Cameras" updates for £14.99. Having done so on 27 Nov I am offered "special price" for the same product of £6.99. My GO300 now too old to be supported, therefore I am unable to contact TomTom by webpage or email - they don't offer a general enquiry email address! I telephone TomTom and my complaint is passed up to...

Speed Cams in France by Jack Rabbitt
Hi Everyone , I was wondering, has anyone know of stories about people who have driven to france with their speed cams still on the sat nav? anyone know what the police have done, or how they catch you? If its anything like engerloond, you can drive around with the mobile attached to your ear and nothing, so cant see why the cops would be checking every satnav!

Field demo required - GPSMAP 62 range - West Midlands area (UK) by R1
Hi. I have traditionally avoided anything more technical that a map & compass, but I now need to develop GPS navigation skills to get me through a 3-day cross-country ski event in Scandinavia (where every recognisable object will be hidden by heavy snow, in temperatures around -40C). Research suggests that i need something from the GPSMAP 62 range, such as a GPSMAP 62st or 62stc. For details,...

City Navigator maps for the Garmin Montana by Mike Lane[_2_]
I'm planning to buy a set of City Navigator maps for my new Montana 600, which are available as a download or a DVD. I was about to specify the download to avoid delivery delays until I read this page on the Garmin website: http://tinyurl.com/ygk6r96 According to this it appears that updates can be obtained for the DVD version but not for the download. Can anyone actually verify that this...

Is my TomTom broken or is it the leap-year bug? by Jim
I dropped my TomTom GO300 on Saturday. After it would not find a GPS signal, said GPS reception poor. I was in the process of finding a repairer in the UK when I came across this article on BBC News http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17599701 Now I wonder if it was as a result of being dropped or the "bug". I suspect the former as it was working OK before I drooped it. However, it was...

Help to find GPS logger by Frank K. Jensen
Hi guys, I have looked and looked, but I still can't find a suitable GPS logger for longer trips without access to computer and power. Perhaps some of you have an idea? Must have: 1. Memory for about 1 month of logging (16 hours/day) at 10 sec. intervals. 2. Run on common rechargeable batteries (e.g. AA/AAA) 3. Reliable

Combines right and left wherever the opportunity arise to exit at the next crossroads.

Navigon 40 Easy by rhylbloke
Hi, I bought a Navigon 40 "Easy" from Halfords on offer a few months ago. I haven't had much chance to test it, but I was heading north up the M6 going to Keswick a couple of weeks ago, and it wanted me to turn off just after Warrington ! I ignored it and stayed on for another 60 miles until Kendal. Also, after that, I tried it locally, and it wanted me to use country lanes, which may look...

Etrex H repairs/spares by Stewart Robert Hinsley
I have a Garmin Etrex H. The molded plastic strap that wraps round the unit, and transmits finger pressure to the recessed buttons, has torn. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement strap? Or, if such are not available, can anyone recommend a suitable adhesive. (I've tried Gloy Gum, but I'm not convinced that this is going to hold. -- Stewart Robert Hinsley

Garmin GPS Recommendation by [email protected]
I am going to upgrade my Garmin eTrex Vista HCx. I have narrowed it down to a choice between the new Garmin eTrex 30 and the Oregon 450 but I really can't decide. Price isn't a factor as with full GB 50k mapping they are both about the same. In favour of the eTrex 30 is the newer satellite chip that picks up GLONASS and in favour of the Oregon 450 is the larger screen. I'm not even sure if the...
