Re: help

Check the charger with a multimeter for voltage on the charger lead. If there is no voltage then this is as fault.
You should return it to the dealer if still under warranty.
If the fault is within the F20 then you should definitely take it back to where you purchased it. If it is still under warranty then the dealer should replace it free.
If this is not possible and because you did not specify your country you will have to go to a search engine ie and type in "navman repairs" Paris. Include the quote marks and substitute Paris for your city.
When you are sure of a good result with an AUTHORIZED Navman service center, go to the repair center web page, find their telephone number and ask them if they are able to repair your device.
If you are not able to take the device to the center then tell them you will be sending it by your postal service.
Just wrap it up well in a box, preferably the box it came in. Include all the parts. And send by recorded post from your post office. Insurance is recommended and usually quite cheap.
Good luck, and if you want me to do the searching for you then come back and comment with your Country and city, I'll try to find a repair center near you.

Is this my 600 LMT Navman already charged in build or have to charge from computer?

Best to charge unit from Mains or Computer USB, then you know it's fully charged. Navman has charge in battery but you need to fully charge it yourself , then you know where you are.

Hi I have a navman f20 which shows a batterey with a x on the display then turns off I have allowed the unit to discharge fully when on recharge it shows the same display

The battery is defective or your charger is not working. Most likely it is the battery but the charger is a possible until checked. You may want to find a gps shop and find out if they can get a battery.You can also contact Navman and talk to support about sending it in to them for repair. The battery should be about $20 plus labour to install.

Application error.

This is not an uncommon error and is mostly referred back to Nab=vman for repair

Other than sending it to Navman you can...Open up the unit (this voids any and all warranties you may still have and if you go with this option forget about contacting Navman). F20's internal flash is just a hidden micro SD card. If you don't have it already, you'll need to get a cheap micro SD card adapter -- with it you will be able to read the card with any card reader. You could then scan card for errors and look for log files that could provide more information on what went wrong with your unit.

Erreur f20

This is a fault with the internal memory chip failing. It can not be fixed and requires the unit to be sent to Navman and the chip replaced.

Return your GPS to the place of purchase and they will complete the return for you if you've had it less than a year. You will need a repair ref number from Navman before sending it back.
This would cost you if the items out of waranty.

Navman F10 not starting

Apparently, according to the Navman helpdesk you have to open NavDesk and from the menu, go to Tools and then Recover Keys .
I tried this on my S80 and I got an error, (E000050) which I was then told I had to send the unit back for repairs. This is my worst purchase ever. I'm on my third unit and have had nothing but trouble.

Can I connect the wires from a car charger to the connections under the unit ?

An alternative is to use a navman P1 "hotshoe" This allows charging to be carried out through the bottom strip connector.

Navman N40i Not charging in car

Does the car charger cord plug into the cradle? or just straight into the unit (despite resting on the cradle) ? Do you know if anything else charges via the car charger?

Navman repair

Any electronics repair place or perhaps a camera repair shop should be able to fix it for your. Search google or your local phone book for electronics repair or camera repair. This is a very easy repair IF you are electronics savvy, but not a good first/learning project. This will require either soldering a loose connector back to the board or they may need to find and purchase a new connector to replace the old one if it is broken.
