Re: fatal error, unable to open application database

Have you tried the reset button? It would be found on the lower right side on the rear panel. Don't really know if this will fix your particular problem, but it might be worth a shot.

Do you need to update the maps in the audiovox nvx226 gps reciever if so how

Audiovox got into the GPS business almost as an afterthought, they have virtually no customer support and have never released any updated maps, I get asked this same question allot, also have contacted them myself and found they have no future plans to release any map update software, u can't just use any MAP download, if it is not compatible with the software of your unit it will lock the unit up and you are done, new GPS time, if you want a GPS that have regular map releases TOMTOM and GARMIN are your best choice.
