Question about Navman Tracker 5500i GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Navman Tracker 5500 turns on but locks itself in the entry page

I can't get my Tracker to go beyond the first page, where we usually hit the ENTER key. It stays there for several minutes. Then it starts searching for satellites, endlessly.
I was wondering if I could just reset the unit to factory default. It might solve the problem, just as in computers.
Thank you

    Takes up to an hour to get signals from all satellites, then does not operate with the chart card.

    I'm having the same problem. Used to work fine. Now just says its "aquiring satellites" forever. If it does get a fix, it will only hold a fix for about 5 minutes, then goes back to aquiring satellites.

    Mine does exactly the same, there is an internal battery, soldered to the board, does anyone know if changing the battery actually cures the fault?

Apparently it is the internal battery that might be at fault or just be old. I'm going to replace mine as it costs a fortune to get Navman to do it. Can't find any info on how to do it, but should be simple. Only thing is that you lose all waypoints and other user input data (unless you have the PC Planner from C-Map).

Have the same problem??

Used to take less than a minute to acquire satellites now takes 10-20minutes.

Navman Tracker 5500

I am having same trouble. I contacted Navman NSW and went through all the settings without result. It was suggested that the problem could be the external antenna, if not a fault in the machine. I have seen an after market antenna for about $19 so I might try that. It does seem as though the antenna is not talking to the Tracker.

Navman 5500 gps backlight dim but set to max

Its water ingress causing a short in the high voltage wiring PCB.

Open the unit with a 1.5mm allen key, unscrew the power/data cable sockets with a spanner and GPS antenna inlet with an 8mm socket (NA to i models) .

Where water has arced there will be burning black on the green PCB evident, cut the PCB wire and remove the section around the burn.
solder a new wire to bypass the short.
Dry the unit and seal with silicone to prevent re occurrence.

Its a 2 hour repair requiring a high DIY soldering standard but off set it against the time it will take to reload you waypoints in a new plotter , its well worth the trouble.
