    The problem is how to contact Navman. The mail returns the message saying "out of office". If I can't solve the problem I will never buy a equipment from this manufacturer.

Screen is showing computer, usb connection, navman which are joined together by a serious of dots with the computer screen to usb connection showing green lights

The F20 Desktop Software and Service pack on the CD's from navman do not work, as you have seen. The solution is to go to the navman website and download this Service Pack

Be sure your f20 is connected to the USB cable and turned on displaying the USB Connection screen. Leave it on during the entire process.

Once downloaded, run this self extracting file and let it install automatically. After it is installed and will see the same error again of failure to connect.

At this point you must reinstall the driver manually. Right click on your "My Computer icon, Select Devices, then properties on the navman. You should see a yellow "?" next to a statement "Unknown Device" in the USB devices. Click on the "Reinstall Driver" and select a specific location or the Have Disk button. The USB driver is now located in C:\program files\Navman\f20servicepack\USB directory.

You should get a button that now says Okay at the bottom, click onto it and allow the MS program to update the drivers. You should see the device screen change and say "This device is operating properly". You can then close the windows and run the F20 desktop program. It should connect then.

B2+ software update

Hi The B2 is not the device that requires ID updating but the navman F series module, as this is what actually displays the Caller ID. Go to the address at the end i've given you and it'll take to straight to the relevent download page and download your relevent F series download.

Navman se 3450 comm and baud settings

The correct baud rate etc settings are 57600, 8, N, 1 (ie 57600 baud, 8 bit, no parity, 1 stop bit). You can verify this and see other details of specifications at or

The other thing you may have forgotten that you need is to install the Navman driver - unless you have done this, you will get a "card not recognised" error when you slide on the GPS sleeve. This driver, version 3.1.6, can be downloaded from the Navman website.

I don't think you need to set the COM port number as a number, rather you select the Navman driver and it automatically knows which COM port is associated. This is COM 6 on my setup, but might vary between devices?

The other thing that some GPS software requires is to know the "type of GPS receiver" - this is "Other NMEA"

Navman N40i compatability with Vista

Solution to get GPS Navman N40I working with Windows Vista.

I solver the problem (most of it) by uninstalling the old activsynk witch was delivered with the manufactory CD. Then I downloaded from “” Windows Mobile Device Center. After installing this software I connected my Navman N40I to my PC and waited to for the Mobile Device Center application to load. When it tried to gain partnership with my GPS I removed it. Voila, and the SmartST Desktop 2006 SE application was able to communicate with my GPS.

Hope this will help you!

Kind regards

Software update

Navman in no longer offering support for it's iCN 510. I am really mad about this. I spent $400 2 years ago for something that will not have anymore update. 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 chipset and software 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,
