    I have the same problem with my Navman N60I. I´m not sure if I understood your solution though, after installing the Microsoft software, what did you remove? The mobile center? Would be grateful for a more explanatory guide for dummies.

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 “http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/help/synchronize/device-center.mspx” 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
Mega A

Navman n40i smart st compatability problem with vista.


Hi,

Are you not able to run the activesync program despite the Vista warning? Did you try running it in compatibility mode? What happnes when you try to connect with sync center (what happens...any error messages)? Regarding the mobile device centre...did you check that McAffe and windows firewall is not blocking it from internet access?

I require UK,Ireland map updates, informed by Navman that they no longer supply them on discs.


Hi,
There are no more map updates for that device because it's discontinued. Navman should be able to offer you a trade in towards a newer device. try and give them a call.

Navman SmartST software not compatible with Windows Vista


Run the Navman software in XP emulation mode. Do a word search in Google for "XP emulation mode in Vista" to get instructions on using emulation mode.

Navman maps , loading new maps through windows vista ??????????


I just had same problem while trying to load 2008 maps onto N40i . This I unfortunately discovered once I had already removed the existing maps as instructed part of install.

SmartST2006 isn't so smart! It kept saying I wasn't connected to internet when it was registering my product key' despite it most definitely being connected and I had temporarily disabled my AVG firewall just in case it was blocking.

I found an alternative way of registering the maps on the Navman website where it is required to enter the Navman serial number and the maps product key in order to get a code but that didn't work for me either, it didn't recognise my Navman serial despite having been fully registered when new.

My final (desperate) solution worked - find a computer with Win XP install SmartST2006 and hey presto! It took quite a while to load the maps though.

Proof to me that SmartST2006 is not compatible with Vista, if only they had put a slip in the maps box warning of this possibility.

The 'latest' pan Europe maps which are labeled 0408 actually appear to be 1106
