Our Navman is unable to find Satelite connection.

At first it took up to 10 minutes to find, now it doesn't find satelite signals at all.

Thank you, Julie.

10-15 minutes is normal.
Did you take it outside? GPS doesn't work indoors. Try in an open field, no trees. Should lock in a few minutes. I always do the following: i key in the destination address at home, then put it under 'favourites". When i start driving, i put the unit in my car and look up the recently added favourite. The unit then has enough time to lock on to the satellites.

When i turn my navman icn310,its just says waitin for gps,wot does this mean

It means it's searching for GPS birds. The initial process may take up to 15 minutes for the unit to locate enough birds to locate itself. after it's located the birds and itself, subsequent power on sequences should be shorter in locating the birds.

Navman just searches for GPS

i get the same on two of the same here only thing i can say is their tech support does not work and their customer service is next to none but perhaps they have turned off the satelite signal so that the 320's wont work anymore so that people have to go out and buy another 1 or perhaps the aliens shot down the satelite

My eTREX VISTA won't get a satelite fix any more

The unit needs to have the screen facing up. The unit will not read if it is vertical. Garmin cust serv finally helped me with that one. Once you turn on the unit, it could take up to 20 minutes (usually about 3) to grab satelites.

Have got a brand new S50 Navman and am unable to connect to my mobile phone via bluetooth. The brand of mobile phone is F850 ZTE. I am in Australia and the phone is bluetooth capable, i just can't get it...

I found out that the phone i have will not connect with my navman S50. I tried a couple of other phones and it worked without a hitch. All i wanted to do was confirm that the bluetooth function on my navman was working. Thank you.

Connecting N95 to Navman S50

The N95 is a fairly new phone and the S50 was only launched on the market in 2007. That phone is not listed as being compatible on the Navman website. Try and see if there are any updates via Nokia. Otherwise the 2 are just not compatible and there is no solution. Each company can alter the bluetooth settings, some companies use a standard connections and others a more complex connection.
