Question about Navman iCN 520 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Screen letters out of alignment.

When trying to input a street address or location using the alpha/numeric keypad and touch wand, the letters and numbers do not align themselves to where the touch wand is pushing. For example to get the letter 'a' up on the screen you have to push the letter 'd'. It's as if the whole screen has moved out of alignment. I have not tried to recitfy the problem as I'm not even sure what the problem is. The unit was working fine up until a few weeks ago. Is this a software problem or hardware. Please help.

Re: Screen letters out of alignment.

It sound like low battery or a software "glitch" Either removing the batteries and waiting a minute before reinstalling them will reboot the software. If not, replacing the batteries should work.

Do I save location after or before I get there

When you want to save where you are instantly touch the icon for the vehicle and the "save input screen" will come up. You can fill it in now or just wait until there is a convenient time to stop the vehicle.

Save a location before or anytime by following the address menu state, then city, street number, then street name, and saving. The order may be different depending on the model you have.

Hi there why is it that my sat nav only allows me to enter part of address or postcode and blanks out the rest of the input keyboard. There is no setting on my device to allow all functions of the alphabet...

magellan gps is that kind.the blanking out is to prevent errors. let put it this way. 123 west pine lane . for example
type city... then street. as soon as one letter is typed. search is narrowed to a minimum to make it easier to gps to search your destination with much less errors
type p.( for pine)
then. all letters visible. are for all street names that start with p in the city you selected before. .
then p i
a few letters will be displayed.meaning that only names that start with pi will show. like picture picnic pine pin pint pine pines
when you type pine as for address..
it wil show you all streets that matches city and street
123 west pine
123 east pine lane
123 north pine lane
123 south pine rd
123 south pine ave
your selection will be 123 west pine lane.
if you dont want to strugle with that gps. i highly recommend GARMIN GPS devices

Not letting me put in the address

It searches the database for street names. keep typing your street name until it is the only one availiable. If it cannot find your street, then either: you are spelling it wrong, you have the wrong city/state or the street is newer than the database

Tomtom 730 cannot enter address with a letter such as 2N124 If I enter just 124 I do not get the correct location. I can enter this on a Magellian gps and it works.

When you're typing the address, at the bottom of the onscreen keyboard is a button that toggles the alphanumeric characters from the alphabet to the numeric keypad. That should allow you to type in numbers and letters as needed.

Does that solve your problem?

Street name that is a number.

When you need to enter an address that is numerical such as the 52nd street, enter as normal until you reach the street name. At the bottom of the screen, you will see a button that says, "123." Press this button, then enter the number (52, in your case). Press done, and it should say something like, "52nd (Street, Ave, Etc.)" Press this button, and your address should show up. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.

Keying in street addresses

To find streets that are numerical, not names, enter the address normally to start. Enter the State, City, and House Number. When it asks you to enter the street, look at the bottom of the keyboard. You will see a key marked 123. Press this key, and numbers will show up instead of letters. Type in just the numbers (25 for 25th Avenue, etc.) and hit Done. The street should show as (25th (St., Ave., etc)). Press the correct entry.

StreetPilot c 340 does not allow to enter address

Ok, you've tried a reset, but have you tried a Master Reset? Doing this WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES, but it may help. Turn the unit off. Press the "On" button with your finger on the bottom right of the screen at the same time. Release the "On" button, but keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you're sure you want to reset all data. Press "Yes". See if this helps.
