    It suddenly just had the Navigon screensaver on it and it wouldn't go off whether we turned the gps off or not. NOw it just has a blank screen and won't do anything.

Try holding the power button down for 15 to 20 seconds - that worked for mine!
Hope that helps

Hi everyone, this happened to me to - green light on but wouldn't turn on. I pressed the reset button (found next to the usb) and simultaneously pressed the power button - hey presto - it came back on. I have the Navigon 20 easy, hope this works for you too.

The first thing to do is have the battery tested, just because you charged it doesn't mean it will stay charged if the cells are sulfated up or shorted.

I have navigon 6300 Gps when i switch it on it starts up then switches off

Check the power source. If the battery of the vehicle has not enough charge, this may happen. Check it. The problem is with its working voltage itsef. OK.

My navigon 5100 gps wont charge while in use

Switch it on and let it totally discharge - the battery could have established a memory and thinks that it is fully charged -the wonderful world of electronics where nothing is what it seems.
Once discharged put it to OFF position and recahrge it.
Good Luck

My Navigon 5100 GPS will not turn on. At times, when it does turn on, it will not turn off.

I'm not sure if you realize this, but you must hold the power button for about 10 seconds to turn the 5100 on and off.

GPS signal not sufficient on iPhone 3G

Had the same problem with Navigon for the iPhone. I found a simple quick fix:

1. Go to your iPhone Settings
2. Press the General tab
3. Scroll to the bottom and press the Reset tab
4. Press the Reset Network Settings tab

This may take a short time, then after it's done, reboot your device (if it doesn't on its own).
You should now have a good GPS signal!

Wont turn on

This has happened to me with my tomtom, I freaked out! What there is, is a reset button somewhere located on it. It should be a small hole you can fit a pin or needle into. Do this, and hold the small button inside down... let go and try it again, should turn on!

Good luck! :)

Try turning it off and turning it back on while it is still plugged in and see if that works.
