Hi Russell
I have done a search for you and i think it's best to visit the navman website, they have a support area and updating map area, however I have found that your model is discontinued so they might not have the software to store so many addresses and poi,s but its worth checking the site for a software maps update for your model

Go to the Garmin website to update your maps. Depending on your Garmin model you may have free updates - up to 4 updates per year. otherwise they have to be purchased.

Hello,

My name is Mike, I am a GPS expert. A lot of your problem is updating issues, and rebooting issue. Please read all this information below. Thanks So Much, Here is some of my personal experiences, Sense I am also paid to test new units that hit the market through manufacturers.

Update: September 8, 2011: Navigon was taken over by Garmin. There are NO MORE USA MAP UPDATES for this unit. If you buy it you will NOT be able to update the USA maps.

I'm terrible with directions so I bought this hoping it would help me and it did. It found the satellites immediately and kept me moving along quickly. It updates quickly and even if you choose a different route it recalculates a new route and maps it out instantly. The touch screen is responsive and easy to use. It's well made and doesn't feel cheap. The windshield mount works easily and holds the unit in place.

When you register the unit at the Navigon website, you'll find out that a software update is not necessary as of today. FreshMaps is supposed to be available this month (July) and you can sign up for E-mail notification as to when they'll be ready for download. The unit comes with a 2 gig memory card and you can install a larger one when it's needed. The operating system for the mapping program is Windows CE. No problems with it yet.

So far, I'm happy with this unit. It does what I need without a load of unnecessary bells and whistles.

August 3, 2008: As of today, FreshMaps update is now available for this unit. Just go to the Navigon website, log into your account and download the Navigon downloader program. Install the program on your computer and you're ready to go. You can even backup your old maps with this downloader program which is recommended before you download the new maps and install them.

October 1, 2008: Navigon now gives you FREE lifetime traffic information. You just can't go wrong. I've been very happy with this unit.


HERE IS SOME MORE COMPUTER BORING INFORMATION TOO:

The Navigon models, like many competitors, use a customized version of Microsoft's Windows CE as their basic operating system - augmented by a software package which includes the Map information, Points Of Interest, and the manufacturer's particular 'twist' on a User Interface (what you deal with, onscreen, to enter information and use the device). The Navigon units use a 2GB SD Memory Card to hold it all - which allows for an easy hardware upgrade (pop in a bigger Card) if the data-handling needs ever grow beyond 2GB. (In comparison, my ancient Garmin had a 32MB internal chip, and wasn't expandable.)

BOTTOM LINE, IS YOU NEED TO TURN POWER OFF, AND AS YOU TURN IT ON, HOLD ON BUTTON ALL THE WAY THROUGH BOOT UP UNTIL IT TURNS COMPLETELY ON THEN RELEASE ON BUTTON. IF THIS MANUAL REBOOT PROCESS DOES NOT WORK, NEED TO UPDATE UNIT.

I HOPE THIS HELPS, MIKE, FROM FIXYA

also to contact me for future problems, check out my direct market place site through fixya for other areas I am a expert in. Thanks Again, Mike

How do i upgrade my navman sat nav with new roads and it used to warn me when speed cameras were present but does not now


Map updates are usually NOT free. Some manufacturers allow for a "one time update" within 30 days of purchase - to ensure the owner of the latest maps. Other than that, there are three models out there.

One is a the purchase of individual map sets for the geographical area of interest for a modest fee. nearly all manufacturers offer this type of update. In return, a disk containing a program to update the maps in the GPS is run on your computer while the GPS is connected via USB cable or serial cable. You might even end up maps preloaded on a removable memory card. Simply inserting the card into the slot on some GPS units will allow the the GPS to use the new maps on the card instead of those installed on the internal memory of the GPS (if the memory card is removed, the GPS uses the old internal maps).

The second model is a map subscription service (Garmin and a few others) that allows for the download of new mapsets as they become available (2 or more times per year) to your computer. This is done on older models (those sold before lifetime maps were offered) or if it is determined that buying updates one at a time will be too costly, after purchasing the GPS. Running the download with the GPS connected to the computer will update the internal maps of the GPS - just like the disk method. The subscription service costs more than buying a single update disk, but is often less than the cost of 2 update purchases. The subscription lasts a predetermined amount of time, or in many cases, "for the life of the GPS".

The last is similar to the subscription method above, only that you purchase the GPS with lifetime map subscription built in to the cost of the GPS. Included in the GPS package are instructions on how to go about starting the subscription and installing the maps - the same instructions are included with the purchase of a subscription after purchasing the GPS.

One place that sells maps for the Navman brand GPS can be found at http://www.activegps.co.uk/navman-maps.htm You may also find them available for sale in retail outlets that sell the Navman GPS devices, too.

Speed or "Safety" cameras and Red Light Camera locations are often offered as a subscription, due to the not necessarily permanent placement of these devices. Some manufacturers offer this, while others do not. Third party providers have stepped up to fill the void created by those that do not offer this information. I found these sites that have this data available:

http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/uksafetycameras-navman.php
http://www.speedcamerasuk.com/speed-camera-database.htm

There may be others that cost less or are even free. Keep in mind that maintaining this database can be difficult, so the free databases are more likely to have erroneous information in them when compared to those databases that charge for access.

I hope this was a good starting pint for you and helped. Please rate my reply - thanks!

How do you update your gps


Do you mean the maps or the satellites?
Maps: you need to ask your GPS vendor if he/she have a free update; if not you can always buy a new one.
Satellites: go out when there's a clear sky and you are in a area with only a few buildings (clear of obstructions), switch ON the GPS and wait for a couple of seconds. Depinding on your GPS you can also use the WIFI networks.

Won't accept address information from user


Check in Settings -> Map -> Map Info to see which map(s) currently are installed, perhaps only a small part of the region got installed. When updating map material the unit will erase all old map material from the unit, so if you had a larger area than the one you updated to, then only the newer smaller area would be installed, and thus searchable.
If you have MapSource on your PC and the new map update installed there too, you can try to search for the same address there and see if you're able to find the address then.
