    I have the same problem. I called them and they told me they can't tell me what is wrong with it and I have to send it in PLUS it'll cost me $75 to fix because it is out of warranty. Odd... it randomly locked on me two weeks AFTER the warranty. It worked, i went into a store, i came out and it was locked. There is a picture of a lock and key on it with japanese or chinese writing on it. I didn't do anything to it nor can i do anything with it. Makes me wonder if it was TIMED TO LOCK AFTER A YEAR!

When i write adress on my rw400 gps it says no gps signal

The two actions are not related. It just happens that when you were entering the address of destination the GPS has not locked on any satellite signals. Go outside of the building and you might get a signal. Reception is affected by atmospheric conditions.

Please help


From the Rightway rw550jr User manual:


This option is only visible when Show More Settings is selected from the Settings menu. Use this option to access the licensing information of your CoPilot software. The licensing settings allow you to activate/deactivate license regions. (Currently only North American Data is available.)

You may want to contact RightWay GPS Support for assistance.

Garmin cannot be unlocked unless you know the pink or the security location where the pin was initially set. If you don't know any of these two, your unit has to go to Garmin so they can remove it. There phone number is 1-800-800-1020. Garmin Lock is designed to prevent theft and it works really well. There are no cracks to by the system either. Sorry.

Everything has been working fine, then turned the RW200 on and "Not find navagation software!" message, CoPilot won't run and I don't see the CoPilot.exe in the CoPilot folder?

I had the same thing happen. Apparently the built in NAND memory can become corrupted. On mine, the GUI launches, one can see the file system, and it could still play MP3's, but no longer navigate. I looked at the memory contents by plugging the device into my computer (it's a WinCE device) and the navigation files were all with corrupted names and can't be deleted or overwritten either.
I also tried file recovery software ("Recuva") but it didn't see the NAND.
UPDATE: Was able to copy and fit the navigation software from another RW200 to my desktop and thence to an SD card (except for the POI database). Was able to get the RW200 with corrupt COPILOT.EXE to open COPILOT on the card, but first it says it can't find it. Then opens to it, but it can't find any of my saved favorites. So it must look at the NAND by default for the other files and can't find them.
