The most likely problem is your GPS maps are corrupted. Try downloading a new or "updated" map off the manufacturer's website. Then install it to your GPS and it should work.

If that doesn't work, try completely draning the battery. Depending on how you do this, this may take anywhere from a 38 hours to a week. Unplug the device and leave it on, wait until the battery completely dies, and then let it turn off. After about a week of not being charged, your GPS will reset all configuration options and become just like new. This should reset the navigation system allowing it to accurately navigate to your destination.

Finaly, if all else fails, you should contact the Navman techinal support - for they would have an exact solution, and may give a replacement if needed.

This is the first satnav I have ever owned. I bought it for £ 109 at Halfords on 27th August 2010. To aquaint myself with it I have fed in about 6 various addresses all with postcodes of my friends...


Hi yes this is very normal instead of entering the post code go through and enter the address doing this will locate the places your trying to locate it will ask for city or street first then just enter the location and it will then ask you the number you want to go to, if it dont come up try entering the street first then the city.

they can be a bit tempremental at times so you have to try entering details a couple of ways but all uk addresses will be loaded onto the device so it should find them one way or another

let me know if you need further assistance ok

if your unsure how to enter the details by street then city then just look in the instruction and once you have done it a couple of times you will find its really easy to do, it can be a bit confusing at first but it wont take long to get use to it.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

It won't accept the address I'm going to only part of the house numbers


Some GPS maps have incomplete records of the the numbers of the streets. In other words, let's say you're looking for 732 Main Street. The GPS map may only have Main Street number houses up to 500 and it will not allow you to enter any higher house number. This is fairly common with many GPS, regardless of make.

Your best options are:
1) Set up the address you are going to the closest one that your GPS will allow. In the above example, set the GPS to take you to 500 Main Street. You'll be about 2 blocks from your destination, so you should be able to find your destination without any problems.

2) If your GPS map is more than 3 years old, you MAY benefit from an updated map, but as I mentioned above, this type of errors is relatively common with most GPS and updating to a newer map many not solve the problem.

Hope this helps. If it doesn, please report back so that I can be of further assistance.

Text to speech incorrect info


Yes, this is basically normal. This is not a shortcoming of the GPS per se, but of the maps that it's using and where on the map it has recorded that certain addresses are located.

The maps that the GPS systems don't (typically, to my knowledge) have every building on them, instead they just have numbers recorded every so often on the street and then the machine interpolates where a particular address ought to be based on known intersections. E.g., 150 Foo Street ought to somewhere around the middle of the 100 block of Foo St. on the "even" side of the street. So this is probably why it thinks your apartment is slightly further up the street than it is; when people build things, we often don't allocate exactly the same amount of frontage to each street number, hence the offsets.

I'm still pretty impressed with my Garmin and doubt I could find my way home without it. 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

WON'T SPEAK STREET NAMES


Greetings Seecar,
I had the same problem with the TomTom One. What you need to do is this:
When you select a voice preference you have to use a "computer" voice as it seems the "human" voice cannot pronounce the street names. I don't know if your model has the same choices but mine is set to "Samantha, English US"
Hope this helps

Check your voice prompts.  make sure you are using either Jack or Jane.  the standard voice is the same as the voice on C330 which only gives you directions.
