Question about GPS

1 Answer

Navman 450MLT worked fine until I went to do the first update of the maps - unit stalled during the process, and now won't work (no maps). Smart recovery does nothing. How do I un-brick my Navman?

If you have any chance of receiving a repair or replacement unit from Navman, do that. I do not know their return/repair policy but trying to fix it yourself may void any chance you have of getting real customer support, unfortunately.

Otherwise, take a look at this post:
In particular: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=2014297&p=2&#r23

He says there is a paperclip hole. This should do a factory reset and may fix your device. Otherwise he claims that reformatting the drive then "safely disconnecting hardware' may fix the device.

SOURCE: maps update

Navman is awful on support for map updates, which they claim are the latest. I've had mine less than a year and have decided to sell it and replace it with a Garmin. You can get maps that are 1-3 years old, even though Navman says 10 months old, for $149 USD. Horrible Company, it should be struck by lightning and let it burn to the ground!

SOURCE: Navman s30 3d 2009 map update is useless

You should be able to install your old map from the DVD/CD that originally came with your Navman - you don't need a Product Key for this, even if it prompts you for one.

It appears that the commercially available 2009 map for the S-Series does *not* cover the S30 3D, just the non-3D versions, although that's not at all obvious from what's on Navman's web-site, so you have my sympathies if you bought it expecting it to work...

SOURCE: Roadmate 5045 slow after update

Magellan support was actually pretty good helping me with the exact same issue. The problem (at least in my case) was that the map files were fragmented. I tried using the Windows defragmenter, but that made fragmentation even worse! The Magellan support engineer recommended I download UltraDefrag instead:
http://ultradefrag.sourceforge.net/en/index.html

Here's what I had to do to completely resolve my issue:
1. Download and install UltraDefrag
2. Connect my GPS to my PC
3. Move the MAP directory from my GPS drive (J:) to my hard disk
4. In UltraDefrag, make sure Action > Skip removable media is not selected
5. Run the optimizer (Ctrl-F7 or Action > Full optimization) after selecting the GPS drive (J: on my computer)
6. Copy the MAP files back to the J: drive AFTER optimization has completed

I double-checked the fragmentation after the files were copied and got 0%. After disconnecting the GPS from the PC, the unit rebooted and doing an address search no longer takes 15 seconds. POI searchs are also much faster than before.

I have a Finedrive 400 GPS unit. Is their a place that I can download the driver for Windows XP, and then update the map? The unit works OK now. We have had it for about 10 years. Thanks, Mike


FineDrive 400's were manufactured by Navman, but are not supported anymore in any fashion, no updated maps, no op system upgrades, no Windows drivers or anything. If and when it malfunctions, you may be forced to get another unit.

I want to update my model how do I do it and how much will it cost


Depends on what you mean by update. If you want to exchange your unit for a newer model, that is between you and the dearler/seller.

If you mean that you want to update the software in your unit to more updated maps, then do this:

Go to this site, and select your model, then choose update maps. You will likely have to download the maps file to your computer, then transfer then to your device. Instructions should be on the Navman website.

How do you get up to date maps for navman my55T


Start at the navman website.

I should pre-warn you that they are not very friendly. About 4 years ago I bought my mom a Navman ICN 620, after 6 months I tried to get updates and called and emailed them for about four months finally when they responded they just said they were not updating US maps for any of their previous products. Looks like they are more an international company that sells in limited quantity in the US through Radio Shack stores. I have gone back to their website about 5 times since then to see if any updates were ever added and they never did.

If its an older unit I would replace it Tomtom makes a nice unit and Magellan even has a few units with free traffic updates (depending on area)

I finally just replaced the unit for her this christmas bought her a Magellan roadmate 1470 for $150.

Just FYI most GPS manufacturers want you to pay YEARLY for their map updates and if you skip an update you may have to also pay to do a firmware update. I have a Tomtom go 720 which is 2 years old they wanted $49 for a firmware update and $99 for the map update.

Operating temperature Navman icn


The unit has two temperature sensors that prevent it from overheating - there is one on the circuit board, and one on the back of the screen. Sounds like one has gone faulty!

Navman S80 will not let me go passed the safety agreement


When I turn my unit on all I can see is the accept/decline screen. The unit will not load the maps. How can I fix this?

Step 1
Connect your Navman Device to your computer via a USB cable.
Turn on your device and you will see a connection screen appear.

Step 2
Wait a few Seconds until a window appears on your desktop and then select “open folder to view” by double clicking on it

Step 3
Once you have opened this folder you will need to double click on “My Documents”


Step 4
Once my documents is opened locate and files that starts with “LOG00” and also “My Mileage” and delete them


Step 5
Once the above steps are done you may disconnected your unit from the computer.
Turn your unit on and enter your main menu page 2/2 and select “Preferences” then select “Route Options”

Once this is selected go to page 4/4 and un-tick “Enable GPS data logging” and “Enable trip recording”


Your unit is ready to use and will run a lot smoother due to increasing unwanted data and freeing space to increase optimum performance. We suggest that you follow these steps once a month to ensure optimal performance.

These steps will work on the S50, S80 or S90i. If you are experiencing this issue on an S30 or any other device, please contact Navman Technical Support on 1300 628 626.

I used this personally on my S80 after it died during my work as a Security Patrol officer and I was not happy, its all fixed now and I have my Nokia N95 loaded with the same places just in case.

GPS reception


Navman in no longer offering map support for it's iCN 510. This means if there is a new road or community, this unit will not recognize it.
I am really mad about this. I spent $400 2 years ago for something that will not have anymore map updates. Here is there reply when I wrote to them about it. Class action suit anyone?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Henry,

Thank you for contacting Navman Technical Support.

We do apologize for the inconvenience. Navman has decided not to release further map updates for these device due to changes in technology over the last year. We have changed the chipset1.gif and software1.gif platform and are unable to update this device. The Navman 500 series was released with an updated map version last 2005.

If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us, we'll be more than happy to help.
Kind regards,
Ofelia
