Question about Navman NavPix N40i GPS Receiver

Navman n40i smart st compatability problem with vista.

I have recently purchased a new desktop PC running Vista. The software that came with my n40i worked fine on my old XP machine but will not work on Vista. When I installed the software on my Vista machine Vista blocked the Active Sync from running stating the programme had compatibility problems.
Navman web site states it does not support Vista but suggests I use Microsoft Sync Centre to connect. I tried this but it did not work. I have also installed Microsoft Mobile Device Centre which recognised I had a devise connected via USB but would not connect it to the internet.

I am running McAffe Security Centre and Windows firewall is fully enabled.
Naveman software installed: SmartST Desktop 2006 and Active Sync 4.2

Please help with the following questions:

Is there a way to connect my N40i to update my Safety Camera files using Vista?

If yes, what settings do I need on the Mobile Device Centre and Sync Manager?

Any other suggestions would be very helpful.

Thanks

    The compatibility problem between Vista, my Naveman n40i and SmartST desktop 2006 has now been solved.



    I went onto Naveman.com to see if there were an update to Smart ST, and there was.



    The update is Service Pack 2 which I downloaded.



    Everything works fine now.



    Thanks for your support anyway.

Hi,

Are you not able to run the activesync program despite the Vista warning? Did you try running it in compatibility mode? What happnes when you try to connect with sync center (what happens...any error messages)? Regarding the mobile device centre...did you check that McAffe and windows firewall is not blocking it from internet access?

Cannot install CARD GAMES for Windows


It's probably an issue with Vista, right click on the icon, go to properties, run as administrator, and run in compatability mode for XP. If this doesn't fix the problem, try contacting the software manufacturer.

I recently, yesterday, purchased a Samsung cd/dvd/ litescribe device. It came with the Nero software and I am having a conflict with my Vista SP1 platform.


Hi! You could try other burning software that is compatible! try looking at the originator of litescribe www.hewlettpackard.com or Windows Homepage for litescribe compatible software for Vista.
Good Luck!

Navman N40i compatability with Vista


Solution to get GPS Navman N40I working with Windows Vista.

I solver the problem (most of it) by uninstalling the old activsynk witch was delivered with the manufactory CD. Then I downloaded from “http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/help/synchronize/device-center.mspx” Windows Mobile Device Center. After installing this software I connected my Navman N40I to my PC and waited to for the Mobile Device Center application to load. When it tried to gain partnership with my GPS I removed it. Voila, and the SmartST Desktop 2006 SE application was able to communicate with my GPS.

Hope this will help you!

Kind regards

Navman maps , loading new maps through windows vista ??????????


I just had same problem while trying to load 2008 maps onto N40i . This I unfortunately discovered once I had already removed the existing maps as instructed part of install.

SmartST2006 isn't so smart! It kept saying I wasn't connected to internet when it was registering my product key' despite it most definitely being connected and I had temporarily disabled my AVG firewall just in case it was blocking.

I found an alternative way of registering the maps on the Navman website where it is required to enter the Navman serial number and the maps product key in order to get a code but that didn't work for me either, it didn't recognise my Navman serial despite having been fully registered when new.

My final (desperate) solution worked - find a computer with Win XP install SmartST2006 and hey presto! It took quite a while to load the maps though.

Proof to me that SmartST2006 is not compatible with Vista, if only they had put a slip in the maps box warning of this possibility.

The 'latest' pan Europe maps which are labeled 0408 actually appear to be 1106
