Re: powering on and off by itself

After wasting a day of my life I could never get back ...... you in fact have to update the software with a Sd card. I didnt think this was the problem because it was turning on for a couple of minutes but then shutting off, but that was exactly what was wrong. Just update it and it will stay on

Maps Unavailable???

You should go back to that place who installed it for you and ask them. I'm not an expert, just another poster with another problem.

KNA G510 update software and add POI file

They either installed it under a seat (easy) or behind the dash (hard). It's probably behind the dash, which means it's gotta be all taken apart. When they were installing the head unit they prolly just stuck it right behind it. So it's basically a pain in the ***. You'd be able to find it by following the wires from behind the unit. I have the same problem, I might just take it to the guy who installed it and have him do it. Call around to different stereo installers, they may charge you like 30-60 bucks to have it done... it's probably worth it considering the pain it is getting the whole dash apart and back together again.

Garmin's KNA-G510 won't find satellites unless I tell it I'm in another state and it expands satellite search

I have the g510 with a kenwood head unit. On the satellite screen, on the left it only shows one satellite and on the right it is showing that there are upwards of six or so satellites that it is receiving reception from. I thought it might be the antenna, so I bought a new one. Still having the same problem. It cannot find my location. I've updated the software, I don't know what to do!!

Navigation not working

Recheck your connections on the kna-g510 and ensure it is getting power, not too familar with the kvt-819, but I've got the kvt -915 and when I pull up the screen, there is an icon right by the src icon, that looks like a wrench. Press that and find A/V interface and ensure that the navigation input is set to RGB, also you can back out and go to user interface and ensure the Navigation is set to auto intstead of manual. That may be the case if it is similar to the kvt -915.

Kenwood KNA-G510 antenna?

After contacting Kenwood tech support several times, a tech finally came out and said if the unit is under warranty send it back to them and they will swap it since they do not repair it. If the Unit is out of warranty, then contact Garmin. When I contacted Garmin, the tech stated that Kenwood is pulling a fast one instead of standing behind their product. So who actually owns this product Kenwood or Garmin? Both names are on the product, but no one wants to repair it. Anyway to make a long story short there is a new update for this product 3.60 as of Feb 2008, downloaded and the unit works fine. Should resolve this issue.
