Question about Navigon 2100 Portable GPS Receiver

1 Answer

POWER SWITCH DOES NOT ILLUMINATE GPS SCREEN WITH 12VOLT PWR.

Have Navigon 2100 GPS purchased about 3 months ago. When unit is plugged into 12volt power the units power lamp lights on the GPS and 12volt cord but the LCD screen remains unlit when the power button on top is depressed. It appears as no power is getting to the GPS to illuminate the GPS Screen. Experienced misdirections prior to unit powering down. Unit had difficulty finding my location prior to power switch not powering unit up with 12volt connection.

My navigon 2100 doesnt work after the update. help


I own a navigon 2100 as well. Very nice device and you can install the 5100 software and the 7100 maps and points of interest. gpspassions.com is the best resource for 2100 help.

Try this:
Hard Reset Procedure - if the PNA is on, press the Power button until the unit goes off. Press again and hold the button down - the screen will come on and after a few seconds go off again. Press the Power button again and the screen will come back. If you get the opening "music", you know the Hard reset was successful.

If you leave the memory card out and keep the unit powered on, you will after a few 10's of seconds go into the Demo mode. When you reinsert the SD card a soft reset will occur (equivalent to pressing the recessed button on the left hand side) and the unit will initialize into whatever the SD card tells it to (see below).

First, Check your wii adaptor, In normal conditions the wii adapter provides the output 12volt. You can test the output using multimeter or a 12volt lamp.

then
plug it into the outlet, If the light is still off/flashing, disconnect the AC Adapter unplug from the wall outlet, wait 2 minutes and plug it back into the outlet. Turn the console power ON.

hopefully this help..

Plug in car charger and it shows navigon connected to computer


The problem lies with the fact that a standard mini usb pin-out has + voltage on pin 1 and ground on pin 5. The navigon is programmed to recognize this as a computer. The navigon charger however has + voltage on pin 4 and ground on pin 5. The reason for navigon doing this as opposed to following the standard pin-out is due to the unit requiring a stronger power supply to charge the battery. USB current output on a computer does not have the capacity to do this. As a consequence, you will have to find a charger that has the right pin-out for this device ( + on pin 4 and - on pin 5 ). The tough thing is, there is no way to tell one from the other, they look identical. However, I have found that chargers with a capacity of 1000 ma or greater are pinned-out like above ( + on pin 4 and - on pin 5 ). Other than using a multimeter to verify the pins, the only thing to do, would be to plug it in and see if it works. Hope this helps.
