Question about Kenwood DNX5120 DVD Navigation System GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Suddenly all detailed maps are locked, I can't unlock them

I have a Kenwood DNX5120 GPS system installed in Spring '06. Everything has worked fine until the other day when I found that the detailed maps are locked. I see nothing in the manual about locked maps. I have used no updates and changed nothing (not intentially at least). I am unable to use the system at alll. Any help would be appreciated.

    all maps are locked, you can't acces the address locations, cities, streets, intersections & you almost have no idea where you are on the screen because it will only show major highways & interstates



    THIS FRICKIN SUCKS!!!

    This must sound really stupid, but on the installation instructions. How do you do step # 7. Use CD burning software to greate a 'garmin' directory on the CD

Why is my kenwood gps screen blank? but everything else works.


This question is the proverbial How long is a piece of string!

For a start the "other functions" you speak of are burned into the ROM
The maps are loaded into memory from a CD. I would assume that your maps have become disconnected and therefore either fail to load or are not setting the display
I recently experienced this on a 5120

You will need a pc with a dvd/cd writer. Go towww.garmin.com/kenwwood, and download to new firmware/software. Justfollow the instructions and upgrade your 5120's software to version2.60.
All you have to do is unzip the file on your pc, copy it to yourcd using your burner software, then load it into your kenwood's dvd/cddrive. Your maps should come back.

If they don't it will be a send to Garmin/Kenwood

Thanks for using FIXYA

The detailed maps are "locked" all of a sudden!


If this is still happening then go to Kenwood direct, they supplied the unit with the pre loaded software and therefore they should deal with the problem as they are not supposed to lock the software. Kenwood if need be will contact Garmin for you. You may find that they have experienced this problem with other users too.

Kenwood dnx5120 no detailed maps?


hi....
Open the cd/dvd tray and close it again. it should be a disc-read fault. That can be, the disc is dirty or damaged. Hope it's only dirty.
greetings and hope it will work soon, Gilbert.
