1. When away from home,and choosing built in shopping, restaurants etc....does the GPS (knowing where you are) choose those closest to you at the time (as opposed to those by your home location) ?
2. I was testing out my toy the other day...turned it off 5 minutes before I got home. The next day my son asked for directions for somewhere so I got my 330out and typed in the address and the directions seemed to start from where I had turned off my 330 the day before...Is this because the 330 remembers my last co-ordinates from when I turned it off? (I "stopped" the trip from the day before..when I turned it back on)
To reset just take it back out side and let it connect back with a satellite? Cam
At least for my C320....
1. yes - it will show the closest POI from the current location. Unless you choose based on an address or a zipcode.
2. You have to make sure the C3xx picks up GPS signal or it could pick up from last locations. Typically, it will beep at you that you have lost the satellite reception or ask you if you are indoors.
Hope this helps.
Thanx so much....that's what I thought. Why are the 300 series known as C3xx? Cam
I would assume all units work the same.
It will remember or start from the last known location of the last good sat lock.
In other words if you turn off your gpsR in Mississauga, then if the next time you turned it on you were in Montreal, it would show you Mississauga until it got another good sat lock, then show your position in Montreal.
You can set your location to anywhere you can find on your maps, then look up food, hotels etc. Just set gps mode to off first.
It will give you the 50 closest to your location as stated by Sanger.
Easier to state C3xx or C5xx for things that work the same between models C310, 330, 340 or C510,530,540,550,580 etc.
Just shorter to type C3xx or C5xx instead of listing all the models.
So that we don't have to say 310,330,350,etc. 3xx includes all 300 series of GPSr.
As the others stated, if you don't have a signal, then it will assume you are at the location of the last known signal location.
