    I have exactly the same problem - i.e. USB connector has come off the circuit board. To make the repair easier - which are the minimum wires that have to be resoldered - i.e. the power in from the 12V adaptor to recharge the battery ?  Is one of them the earth / casing ?

Bought a faulty F20 off EBAY with a broken USB socket.

It seems like a common failure mode.

The one I had had sheared directly of the internal board and their was no PCB track left for re soldering.

I eventually managed to repair the unit by buying a new socket and attaching fine wires which were hard wired to other parts of the PCB then using epoxy glue to refasten the socket. I would consider it a difficult and advanced repair. (Its like micro PCB surgery)

Opening the case is relatively easy. Remove the screws and then use something like a blunt table knife to gently slide between the two case halves until they part bit by bit.

Hope this is of some help.

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.

Navman f20 will charge fron usb port on computer but not with in car charger


If it's not the original Navman usb loader then there's a easy solution to this : With a sharp knife carefully open the usb cable : you'll see four tiny cable's with different colours . You;ll have to cut two of those four cables ; Leave the black and red cable intact.
Use some tape to fix the cut in the usb cable. Now you can use your car charger and your navman won't go into usb mode.

My nav man will not charge or turn on why is this??


Probably the plug on the navman has suffered what we call dry solder joints from inserting and pulling out the charger you need a tech to fix it. soldering is nesessary shouldnt be too expensive I fixed mine its about half an hours work if not too damaged inside

I wondered how you charge the navman s 100


According to page 3 of the s series manual, "use the home charger model MII050100 supplied by navman as an accessory (may be sold separately)

Page 10 gives more details - simply plug in the home adapter, car adapter, or usb cable from your pc into the usb socket on your unit. Computer must be turned on.

Can I connect the wires from a car charger to the connections under the unit ?


Hello,
An alternative is to use a navman P1 "hotshoe" This allows charging to be carried out through the bottom strip connector.

Navman won!t charge from in car charger or mains adapter but will charge from garmin in car charger


Your Navman will not run in car unless the output on the charger is 1000ma or 1a. you need to buy a genuine charger, motorola phone chargers do not have the output to run the unit

I have a navman f20 that has suddenly stopped working ...it just wont switch on?? it was working perfectly yesterday then today when i went to use it it just wont turn on if i plug it in to charge instead...


I had the same problem, turns out that it was a flat battery, which was caused by the usb socket on the gps. The socket was loose and not allowing the battery to be charged.

The usb socket on mine is now not attached as it came completely loose. You may have to get a Tech to resolder it for you.
