By MS Active sync from computer delete file Mounted Volume/my flash/sony/nav-u.exe (the folder SONY is hidden, you must set show hidden files in your comuter first). And then replace old navi file by exe file of total commander CE version ( download is free on site of developer) .You must rename the totalcmd.exe to nav-u.exe. Now after reboot is allowed everything, including executing any other navi software like tomtom, igo, navigon and many other (multimedia players). The oficial navi (old navigon) by sony is not so good in compare with new navi soft. .. enjoy.

Can you download philippines map to madgellan roadmate 1700 gps?

Visit the website of Magellan for your country or their global site. Find the maps, pay for them and download to your computer. You will have access to the installation instructions. Usually you install some software by Magellan, you connect your device to your computer and the proprietary software will install them on the GPS.

Hello and welcome to fixya.

I see you have not included the brand and model of your gps, those would be helpful.

It sounds like there are no maps installed in the GPS, you would have to connect it to your computer, install the software that came with it and possibly a CD that contains the maps.

You would have to install the software cd and then the maps cd if it is on different disk.

The user manual that came with your product will have instructions on how to load the maps into the gps.

The gps will not be able to update the maps if there are no maps installed there. As for download, I do not know what you are attempting to download.

Please follow the instructions and let me know how it goes. If you do need further assistance then please atleast include the brand and model of your machine, also it would be helpful to let me know what happened before the issue came up, did you delete files from the gps or? is this a brand new unit?

Download latest US maps into NAV-U70

Yea, I can solve the problem by ordering the up dated CD for maps of the US, this allows me to only use the GPS by regions, not the entire US. It costs $59.00. I am at this time unemployed so I guess I wait for better days.
Thanks anyway

Jensen GPS NVX430BT How do I activate the text to speech ?

I'm about to return my Jensen NVX430BT because apparently the maps cannot be updated! The maps installed on the unit I just received are obviously outdated and there is no support from Jensen to get them updated. Too bad, this thing has it all except good directions.
