It sounds o me as though the battery is dead or flat - if you can get hold of a usb - mini usb cable and a usb mains charger from somebody (if you do have one yourself) get them plug it it to the mains and leave to charge for at least 12 (preferably 24 hours) - it should be working fine then. (if you do not have a usb mains adapter - plug it into a pc - but leave the pc on to charge it)

The battery is probably run down so much that it doesn't have enough juice to power up - this happens usually if you haven't used it for a while because the battery is being used up to remember where the last GPS position was.

If charging still fails to fx it - then the unit needs a new battery - contactnavman support in this case.

Navman s30 3d 2009 map update is useless

You should be able to install your old map from the DVD/CD that originally came with your Navman - you don't need a Product Key for this, even if it prompts you for one.

It appears that the commercially available 2009 map for the S-Series does *not* cover the S30 3D, just the non-3D versions, although that's not at all obvious from what's on Navman's web-site, so you have my sympathies if you bought it expecting it to work...

B2+ software update

Hi The B2 is not the device that requires ID updating but the navman F series module, as this is what actually displays the Caller ID. Go to the address at the end i've given you and it'll take to straight to the relevent download page and download your relevent F series download.

When I try to update my navman It says I'm not connected and I am?

Hi - yes it probably is a driver thing. Navman's install software apparently doesn't install the Windows driver - you have to do it manually.

I just found this how-to page on Navman's website, and it worked for me:

Good luck
