Re: navman icn510 gps reciever problem

Hi, ive a iCN 510. been working fine for 3 years, then suddenly stopped, showing all the same problems as the 2 reports above. i rang navman, thier solution was to reset the GPS using the menu buttons. i tried, it didnt work!!!! their solution to that is a £100 repair bill. is it worth it? my answer, is no. i went out and bought a new one. £229 does everything.

How long are you waiting and are you moving while it is trying to acquire signal? These receivers are using older circuitry that may take up to 20 minutes to first acquire a signal from a cold start. If you are moving it may take longer!!! The good news is that after you have initially acquired a location, if you turn the unit off it will only take a minute or so to reacquire after it has "warmed" up.

Navman icn510 will not turn has started twice but screen goes blank.

personally i would change the lithion battery. It seems that you are only getting the initial boost which is all a run down battery would give you.

I think the best solution, due that it is a non upgradeable model by the official site, you can unlock and install another software.

I think the battery has failed. so how do i change it please

You can buy a new battery in ebay and replace it. It is very easy: unscrew the four screws and open carefully without sd card(look at the phoneplug and sound roll). You will see the battery with its connectors... same as you bought it.

Continual "waiting for gps " message

the message should also read no mnsa data first... if these units are not in continual use,they get corrupt for some reason. all you can do is hope the gps fix will work itself out,otherwisw buy a new unit.

It's not unusual to lose signal indoors , in fact most portable /car devices receive very little, if any, signal indoors.

I have a Navman ICN510 running TomTom 6.0 software , instead of the standard Navcar CE program. I believe it connects much faster.

Below is a support forum for modding Navman GPS units.
It will teach you how to change the software on your navman & also help with any other problems. It was very helpfull to me !!

My navman icn 510 is always on SIM

Your Navman is in Demonstration mode and is demonstrating a route that you have set up. It should be flashing SIM alternately with the time taken on the route so far. 
If you don't want the 'Demonstrator' to operate, you can turn it off. See your manual. If you have not got one, you can download it from the Navman site. 
I only have the iCN510 and I have to go to the main Menu screen, tap 'Route Information', then Cancel Route to cancel the current demonstration. 
To turn off Route Demonstrator from Main Menu icon_arrow.gif Settings icon_arrow.gif Routing icon_arrow.gif next screen icon_arrow.gif Untick 'Demonstrate Route. icon_wink.gif
