  • David Peebles Mar 29, 2008

    When the system was being charged by an external charger via the USB socket, the Garmin screen displays the GARMIN title and a symbol depicting connection to PC. However, I can't get the system to switch off or respond in any way?
    Help please!
    Many thanks

By David707,
Since posting ma last re: Screen Freezing on external charge; I did manage to get the system back to some normality by pressing the Reset button located underneath the GPS Antenna flap. However this is likely to delete personally stored data on the system.
I should also state that the same problem occurs when I connect the 610 t my PC via the USB connection (another way to externally charge the battery).
A more satisfactory answer required though.

Search finds little on your problem which is odd. I think you need a visit to the Dealership. when was it last serviced? Book it in for service and and ask them to look at that at the same time. You will get a better price and value for money.

I was using my Garmin sat nav when the screen froze. It would not even switch off let along allow me to do antything on the screen. It is 18 mths old.


Hello,

Allow the unit to power itself off by draining the battery.
Once that is done, connect the unit to a vehicle power supply or an AC power supply to charge it back up.
Try running the Garmin WebUpdater.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

Hi kuldipdhanja this sounds like it could be an internal fault with the video module or the sat nav drive, you could try discontecting the battery negative lead for 15 minutes to reset the control units, you will have to remove the spare wheel and unfasten the air compressor bracket to get to the battery, this fix may only be temporary but it is alot cheaper than replacing parts. regards mark.

Can you put factory sat nav in an X5 when it does not already have it in


Hello There

Yes it is possible to install the factory sat nav in you X5, but apart from the head unit you will also need:

  1. new wiring loom
  2. dvd navigation unit installed at the back
  3. TMC radio unit again at the back
  4. bluetooth unit
All the interior needs to come out i.e seats, floor carpets, door trims.

If you feel brave enough then there are BMW forums which gives you very detailed information on how to to it, but don't expect to get it done in a day or even two, a week is probably realistic time. It took me 2 weeks to do my first 3 series.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks
