Re: stuck in demo mode

If you haven't found a solution yet, lokk for a plug in bottom under buttons which looks like end phone cord plug, remove this and it should work. I had this problem with mine.

Unit does not have a demo mode that I can find or have ever seen and I have been using mine for over 4 years.

Turn it off and reboot.

Hi i'd like to know how to update the maps this uses navione app. Thanks

which device ?

Cobra NavOne 3000

Go to the Cobra website (see Resources) and click on "FAQ" at the top of the page.

Use the drop-down menus to select "Nav One 2750-2950-3000-3080" and "Software Updates." Click "Submit."

Click "How do I get and load software updates?" Click the bold "HERE" link.

Scroll down and click "Nav One 3000/3080."

Click on the latest update link to download the update to the computer.

Connect the NavOne's power but do not turn it on. Connect a USB cable to the computer, and connect the other end to the GPS.

The GPS device's LEDs light up, indicating a connection.

Double-click on the update file you have downloaded.

Click "Next" until the update begins.

When you are notified of completion, close the update

hope this helps

Where do I get an unlock code for my cobra gpsm 3000 navone

unfortunately, if you locked you unit and dont remember the passcode, the unit has to be sent in to cobra because they are the only ones that can unlock it. Its an anti theft measure. Their contact number is 1-773-889-3087.

Stuck in Demo Mode

If you can plug the c550 into your computer and pull it up as a drive, you should see a "Demo" folder. Delete this folder, and it MAY fix your unit. If your computer will not see the unit, you will need to send it in for repair. FYI, I am an employee at Garmin, and we always go out of our way to help in any way we can without sending it in for repair. Garmin gives us more latitude to help the customer than any other company I've ever worked for. We don't do anything "just for more money" We don't work on commission, we get nothing out of making the customer pay for a repair.

The only thing I can suggest is to shut it off and reboot. I have experienced an occassional problem like that and seems to be related to calculations for some areas. There is an area in OK where mine will lockup everytime I go thru there. Try downloading the update from the Cobra site. It is a 2005 update.

Hope this helps.
