I had to buy a new in car charger for my navman s30,but when i plug it in to the sat nav & cigerette socket it keeps showing a computer,usb & navman picture.


  • Turn the Navman off by holding the power button in the upper left corner of the device until the screen goes blank.
  • Plug the unit into its charger using the USB port on the bottom of the unit. The battery indicator light next to the power switch should turn orange, indicating that the device is charging. Once the light has turned green the charge is complete. If the light does not turn on, verify that the car charger is plugged into a working outlet.

My Magellan 1200 car GPS says "The USB has been connected to the unit. Please follow instructions for updating maps or software". This happened before and It started to work properly later that day. I...


The USB connection to the GPS serves 2 purposes. It charges the battery and interfaces with the computer to update and or get new maps.
There are separate chargers so you do not have to hook it up to the pc.
There are also car chargers for extended service in the car.
The indication of updating may be needed but you won't know unless you select it.
I updated my Magellan 1412 recently, I downloaded a file, and when I connected the GPS to the pc, I was instructed to run the program I downloaded.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power


unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.

I agree. I suggest you should go to a technician and try a new battery. If the new battery does not work you should speak to your manufacturer.

Tomtom300 gps mains charging +


1= My battery is flat, but when i put it on charge in the house it doesnt charge and no green light comes on, on my sat nav why would this be?

Could be your house charger is bad or the power connector on the back of the Tomtom is bad.

2= But when i put it in car charge it works perfect 'Y'?

You are using the "power shoe" to charge the battery. For a test unplug the power cord from the power shoe and hook it to the back of the Tomtom. If this work then the house charger is bad. If this doesn't work then the Tomtom rear power connector is bad

3= If ever i have to change battery how is this done?

You will have to remove the faceplate and disassemble the Tomtom in order to get to the battery. Or you can find a shop that repairs small electronic. Find the battery on Ebay.
