Navman s30 will not turn on

The navman usually works fine but i plugged it in to the cigarette lighter bit in the car and its not turning on and their is no light on it. I store it in the car in the glove compartment so i had a look in there for any missing bits and i found a black screw top thing which when you twist it onto the usb thing on the navman it fits and then i plugged it in again but it still doesn't work. Any ideas?

SOURCE: demo wont cancel on Navman S30

If PIN feature installed, just turn PIN off and this should bypass allowing the demo to continue. Then go to preferences from the menu, and stop the shop demonstration.

Mine now after being used twice for directions and having turned on about 10 times is stuck at the safety agreement page and every time i press "accept" it loads maps, then the load bar goes back down, seems like it gets stuck and then returns to the safety agreement page.. you can do this over and over again with it stuck in the loop.
Of course it is covered by warranty (as are all new electricals) so i have sent it back but i think if i have the same problem again im going for a tomtom my uncles had one for about 2 years and my cousin about one and both never had a problem..
I think navman may need to review the foundations of the firmware used in their s30 or make it as easy to install from home as the nokias and tomtom's are today.

SOURCE: Navman s30 3d 2009 map update is useless

You should be able to install your old map from the DVD/CD that originally came with your Navman - you don't need a Product Key for this, even if it prompts you for one.

It appears that the commercially available 2009 map for the S-Series does *not* cover the S30 3D, just the non-3D versions, although that's not at all obvious from what's on Navman's web-site, so you have my sympathies if you bought it expecting it to work...

Forget it. I have had the same problem with a S80 and Navman does not give a damn.
I cannot even load the maps I paid for.

I had to buy a new in car charger for my navman s30,but when i plug it in to the sat nav & cigerette socket it keeps showing a computer,usb & navman picture.

  • Turn the Navman off by holding the power button in the upper left corner of the device until the screen goes blank.
  • Plug the unit into its charger using the USB port on the bottom of the unit. The battery indicator light next to the power switch should turn orange, indicating that the device is charging. Once the light has turned green the charge is complete. If the light does not turn on, verify that the car charger is plugged into a working outlet.

Open your usb cable with a sharp knife; you'll find four different coloured cables inside: leave the red and black cable intact; cut the other two. Close your cable with some tape.
Your navman won't go into usb mode again, but it will charge your device
