GPS cold weather operation??


Kingfisher

Question

I place my GPS on a mounting bracket on the dash of the snowmoile. Coming off LOW it would not function from being too cold, it worked fine after it warmed up in the pickup. Is there a remedy for this problem?

I have a gps mounted to the handle bars and it also freezes up and then shuts off.It seems to do this at the worst possible time. To make sure that I have it when I really need it in the cold, I wear a shirt with a front pocket and keep it warm and check as needed.This isn't very convenient but sometimes necessary.Metro

How about putting a hand warmer in a zip bag and putting it over (around) the gps? Finns.

Liquid crystal displays don't respond well in cold weather. Do a search for DC electric blanket. There's small models that you can plug into the cig lighter.

If you can find them, lithium batteries wont lose power in the cold. I've got a set in my digital camera and it works great with them in the cold.

Use Finns reply. Thats what I would recommend. Just tape the pocket-sized heater around the back (battery) side of the GPS unit. Probably insulate the backside of it with something. I'm not sure about the Ziploc bag idea because it might seal out the oxygen and snuff out the reaction going on in the heat pack.

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      Sounds like a fun day Moose. The weather was just about perfect for the days event.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.
