    navman f10, whenever i connect my navman to the in car charger the screen goes to a computer screen connected to a navman screen via a cable, my only solution is to disconnect from 12v source and start again running on units battery supply.

Total waste of time connecting to a pc. You need an in-car charger that supplies enough power for the unit, as simple as. I bought a cheap one off ebay, waste of money, it didn't work. Bite the bullet, get your money out and buy an official charger direct from Navman, that's the only real solution.

With mine the same problem occurred when connecting to the in car charger. I found that if you turn on using it's battery power, wait for your location to be found, access the main menu screen and select "map". Then I found the unit worked fine

This happened to me.... but I figured out how to fix it.

Find a USB cable that you may use for your camera etc (i.e. small to large USB) plug small end into Navman and the large end into your computer. Your computer will see the navman as an external hard drive.... have a look at some of the folders then disconnect the Navman via "safely remove drives" icon in the bottom corner of pc.

Pop the USB cables out, you will see the navman switch off. Then start up your navman and it should work normally.

Dont know why the navman is getting confused seeing the car charger as a pc..... but this seemed to work for me. Hope this helps - Mark

How can i change my navman from German to English. Thank

  • Press the "Main Menu" button on the Navman to bring up a list of options. Tap "Preferences," choose "Localize" and "Language." Each option is selected by touching the screen. The different language options show up on the screen in list format. Touch the language you want to use and press the check mark icon. The Navman will now operate in the chosen language.

    I have a navman s90i . When i plug the car charger in the screen shows a compuyer runing into a navman via a cable then shuts down then try's to start but goes to the above screen

    No solution but exactly the same model and exactly the same problem. When I put the car charger on the unit, it goes off and then comes back on and ust shows a computer as though the only option it can handle via usb is a computer connection. Interestingly, it still charges, but just becomes useless as a satnav as there are no maps, directions or any scree functionality at all.

    Reset navman F10 sat nav

    Press and hold the on/off button for ten seconds will re-set the system on the satnav. If the screen freezes after loading the maps then connect the Satnav to a pc via a usb lead and download the latest Service update fom With the Satnav connected to the computer and the download compleated double-click the F10 set-up.Exe and it will update the system on the Satnav. Once complete disconnect the cable and restart the F10. That was the way I sorted mine out after recieving 'little' help from Tech Support from My problem seems to be in the Multi-drop ability of the F10 [program one location and try and add another to plan a route] but I have never got anyhelp from the tech's other than "Buy a Connectivity kit from us and you may be able to use that to fix the problem....". If you get a "Not enough memory to complete update... " message after double clicking the F10 set-up, you will need to go into your F10 Satnav memory and look up some of the saved files from previous routes you have stored in there. I deleated some of these to free memory and it didn't seem to affect the Satnav's programming and allowed the update to complete. My F10 started fine after that. If you need any more help, tech support may be able to suggest something....., just don't hold your breath....

    Navman F10 Software Update

    Hi, I had the same issue. Found the Navman F10 software via the navman New Zealand website.

    once downloaded the F10 PC software, redownload your language voice to the F10 from the navdesk software you just installed on your pc.
    Note: if the voice is already on the f10 and it's not working, try removing it then redownloading the voice again.
    Once downloaded to the F10 select the required voice from the settings menu.

    Navman S50

    My Navman S50 has been working fine the other day it decided to show me the safety agreement when switched on then shows half the screen black with navman S50 printed in the black section the other half shows a picture of a pretty womans face looking backwards from a car window. I can get to the main menu and then takes me in a circle back to the safety agreement I've tried resetting by holding the on off switch down for 6 seconds when switching off the device is there any other way to reset my navman S50.
