Question about Navigon 2090S Car GPS Receiver

Open Question

I cannot start my NAVIGON GPS 3310 - Europe 40 pays: I get a message that tells." NAVIGON software cannot be started. Please reset you device. Contact the Navigon Service center if the problem persists: The problem does persists in spite of the numerous reset I did. I also tried to restore the factory settings, it does not change anything. When I connect the GPS to establish a conection between the GPS and the computer, for example save the content of the GPS in the computer I get a message which tells me No device was detected (CG2001) No Navigon device was detected. They suggest to unplug and plug again the GPS to the computer, I did so and get the little music which tells me that I am plugging/unplugging a USB device, and I see NAVIGON in Windows Explorer. But still I get the same message that No device was detected: Ths GPS was delivered with all data in the internal memory and none on the SD card (It was working with no SD card). It seems to me that all data in the GPS disapeared, and unfortunately I did not save the data when I I had a chance. Do you think you can help me? I was thinking that perhaps I could install a SD card will all data, meaning Navigon program and maps, and may be it would work. What do you think about that? The problem would be to find this data, The Navigon progam in particular. As for the maps they can be bought, but on a DVD as far as I know, and what if the computer does not recognise the GPS? So, as you see I am puzzeld and seriously consideing buyin a Garmin instead,. I,ve heard that they are more reliable.

SOURCE: Navigon 2000s I cannot reset the Navigon 2000s

Well after many emails to Navigon I got the fix for my 2000s What you have to do is download the 1.2 version software for the 5100 install it on a 2GB micro SD Card. Put it in the slot and turn it on. You will have to regester as if you have a 5100 but it will work. The reason you have to use a 2GB card is the maps are to large to go on the internal memory.

Navigon easy 40 no sound

The usual problem is the voice volume is turned down. This can happen when you are adjusting the volume down just as turn by turn instructions are starting; thus you don't notice it happened, or someone else did it or software glitch caused it or Murphy's law.
The way to fix it is turn vol up to max and set navigation and start driving. As you get to navigation points where you would expect the turn by turn instructions hit the up volume button. Keep trying it will only go up whilst instructions are being broadcast. Try using repeat last directions function to get a better shot at it.
This happened to me and this was the fix, odd but true.
Also see if there is a turn by turn vol level in settings.
Hope it works for you.

Sounds as if the system software that runs the GPS has been corrupted. Your device should have come with a CD that has software that can be reloaded or a utility that can be installed on the PC that connects to the navigon website to download and install the software for you.

Might want to start with that.
Hope this helps
