Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Lets try the basic:

  • press the power button briefly, display controls would be shown;
  • press arrow right to brighten;
  • press arrow down to select contrast;
  • press arrow right to increase contrast;
  • press ENT to accept and save settings.
Should this not work, then the unit has a hardware fault, specifically the back light bulbs themselves or the electronic circuitry supplying their power and controlling their brightness level.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

305 edge screen is hard to read


There is a contrast parameter in the "Parameters" -> System -> Display

You can increase it. Otherwise you may use backlight by short press on start button. duration of backlight also tuned on the same menu.

Navman 5500 gps backlight dim but set to max


Its water ingress causing a short in the high voltage wiring PCB.

Open the unit with a 1.5mm allen key, unscrew the power/data cable sockets with a spanner and GPS antenna inlet with an 8mm socket (NA to i models) .

Where water has arced there will be burning black on the green PCB evident, cut the PCB wire and remove the section around the burn.
solder a new wire to bypass the short.
Dry the unit and seal with silicone to prevent re occurrence.

Its a 2 hour repair requiring a high DIY soldering standard but off set it against the time it will take to reload you waypoints in a new plotter , its well worth the trouble.

I don't know how to fix it but i now a way of getting it back to it's original settings like formatting a computer so only do it if completely necessary. Insert the maps backup cd with your unit attatched to the computer by usb. An option of reinstalling original software will appear, click on this after 10 mins it should be back to how you first got it
