SOURCE: kenwood dnx5120 no detailed maps?

hi....
Open the cd/dvd tray and close it again. it should be a disc-read fault. That can be, the disc is dirty or damaged. Hope it's only dirty.
greetings and hope it will work soon, Gilbert.

Can't view downloaded sections from Garmin Topo


In Map Setup page, scroll over to blue 'ball' icon (second from right), press lower left button on side of GPS unit, use Thumb switch to scroll down to "Show None", click Thumb switch in. All maps will disappear. Press lower left button on side of GPS unit again, scroll down to "Show Topo.....", click Thumb switch in. Your Topo maps should now show onscreen.

The reason your Topo map might not have shown is because, if you leave the Navigator map showing, and then just press "Show Topo", the layer showing Topo will still be under the Navigator map. This is why I always tell it to show none, and then load whatever map I need to see onto a bare screen.

If this solved your problem, please come back and rate our answer as this assists others. Thank you.

Why is my kenwood gps screen blank? but everything else works.


This question is the proverbial How long is a piece of string!

For a start the "other functions" you speak of are burned into the ROM
The maps are loaded into memory from a CD. I would assume that your maps have become disconnected and therefore either fail to load or are not setting the display
I recently experienced this on a 5120

You will need a pc with a dvd/cd writer. Go towww.garmin.com/kenwwood, and download to new firmware/software. Justfollow the instructions and upgrade your 5120's software to version2.60.
All you have to do is unzip the file on your pc, copy it to yourcd using your burner software, then load it into your kenwood's dvd/cddrive. Your maps should come back.

If they don't it will be a send to Garmin/Kenwood

The detailed maps are "locked" all of a sudden!


If this is still happening then go to Kenwood direct, they supplied the unit with the pre loaded software and therefore they should deal with the problem as they are not supposed to lock the software. Kenwood if need be will contact Garmin for you. You may find that they have experienced this problem with other users too.

I have had my Kenwood DNX5120 for 2 weeks now, and yesterday the screen just went blank while driving. You can see the colors morphing around the buttons, but none of the buttons work. You can tap all over...


I just had this problem. You will need a pc with a dvd/cd writer. Go to www.garmin.com/kenwwood, and download to new firmware/software. Just follow the instructions and upgrade your 5120's software to version 2.60.

Nav system


Installing the DVD Map Disc Your dealer/retailer may have installed the map DVD. If the map DVD was not installed, do the following to load it:
Read the following steps completely.
  1. Turn the ignition on. The vehicle must be in P (Park) to perform this operation.
  2. Press (power) to turn the navigation system on.
  3. Press the NAV hard key.
  4. Touch the Insert Map Disc screen button. The screen opens to access the map DVD slot.
  5. Load the map DVD partway into the slot. The system pulls it in. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  6. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.
  7. Set the search area. See "Setting the Search Area" earlier in this section.
Ejecting the DVD Map Disc The navigation portion of the system cannot be used if the DVD map disc is not loaded.
  1. Press the MENU key to enter the Menu options, then press the MENU key repeatedly until Nav is selected or touch the Nav screen button.
  2. Touch the Map Database Information screen button.
  3. Touch the Eject Map Disc screen button. The screen tilts, exposing the map DVD slot.
  4. Press the eject button, located next to the DVD map disc slot, and the disc ejects. Pull the disc out. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  5. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.

Which Maps Are Loaded?


From your Where to?/View map screen press on the box wrench to access the settings menu. Once at the settings menu press Map, then press Map Info and you should see that you have City Navigator North America NT v8 or whichever one is loaded.
