That is probably due to the battery being totaly dead,
try using a mobile phone charger (nokia),
usb is for data transfers.

I need to download New Zealand maps (North Island) to my Navman MY80T

install the nav desk software to you p.c and connect the navman to the pc via the usb cable.

You will be prompted that a map upgrade is available through the NavDesk software. Once the unit has synchronized with the NavDesk software you will be informed that a later map is available. Once you select the map data, it will begin to download to your computer.

Navman f20 will charge fron usb port on computer but not with in car charger

If it's not the original Navman usb loader then there's a easy solution to this : With a sharp knife carefully open the usb cable : you'll see four tiny cable's with different colours . You;ll have to cut two of those four cables ; Leave the black and red cable intact.
Use some tape to fix the cut in the usb cable. Now you can use your car charger and your navman won't go into usb mode.

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.

Navman icn 520 stuck on USB screen

I had this problem when I completely deleted the Backup folder from \My Flash Disk.

Restoring the backup folder allowed the 520 to operate properly again.

It is possible that you have a corrupted APPStartupSec.exe application. Without this file working it appears that the NAVMAN waits in USB mode for ever!

Hope this helps.

check the battery switch on the back. you will need a pen. Mine does the same thing. I believe this switch has to be set to ON for it to work. At least mine wont turn on unless the switch is turned on.
