Don't worry, it's just telling you that map updates are available if you want to purchase them. You can still use the unit without the updates. You can download a copy of the manual online, just do a google search for the manufacturer and model of the unit.

I have got a new Navman EZY40 & iam struggling to reset time & date..Any suggestions please??


I own a Navman MY55T and I honestly don't think you have to reset date and time. I never have for mine.

I have had a look online for you for your model of Navman and could not find anything within the user manual except how to change the format display for day/month/yer or month/day/year.

My only thoughts Sync it with your computer and it may pick up your computers time and date like many other peripherals do when they sync to your computer. Or it may well automatically change when it picks up GPS info as you use it in your car.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 265WT about a year old. Do I need up[dates and are these free, please?


If it's working alright and you're happy with the map there's no need to update it. New maps are released approximately every 3 months for Garmin satnavs but unless there are a lot of new roads there's no need to update that often. Details on how to update your satnav, if you want to, are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

Garmin only supply free updates if a new map became available within 60 days of the first time your satnav accessed satellites. If you never checked to see if you were entitled to a free update follow the update procedure outlined at the above link. When you click on Get Update, if you are entitled to it free you'll be brought to the download page. If you're not entitled to it free you'll be brought to the page where you pay for it.

How do you get up to date maps for navman my55T


Start at the navman website.

I should pre-warn you that they are not very friendly. About 4 years ago I bought my mom a Navman ICN 620, after 6 months I tried to get updates and called and emailed them for about four months finally when they responded they just said they were not updating US maps for any of their previous products. Looks like they are more an international company that sells in limited quantity in the US through Radio Shack stores. I have gone back to their website about 5 times since then to see if any updates were ever added and they never did.

If its an older unit I would replace it Tomtom makes a nice unit and Magellan even has a few units with free traffic updates (depending on area)

I finally just replaced the unit for her this christmas bought her a Magellan roadmate 1470 for $150.

Just FYI most GPS manufacturers want you to pay YEARLY for their map updates and if you skip an update you may have to also pay to do a firmware update. I have a Tomtom go 720 which is 2 years old they wanted $49 for a firmware update and $99 for the map update.

When I press on for example, a way home, it shows me the right place I am, but it does not show me the new roads/highways to get there, only the old ones.


The problem is that your maps are out of date. This can happen pretty quickly in growing areas. The problem is that it is quite expensive to purchase new maps for your device and mostly cheaper to purchase a newer device on sale. If you are handy and don't mind risking your device you can search on the web and find ways to put free software that uses free maps from sources like openstreetmap.org

Backlight flickers 2 years old to the date do you


Furuno has similar displays. I don't know if Eagle provides the same support but you may be able to find an actual schematic diagram technical manual from them if you ask nicely i don't know if Eagle has any government contracts but you can try and tell them you are with some government agency like DOD navy or coast guard or homeland security ;) and see if they will send you a PDF of the manual also try Retrevo.com they may have the techmanual on file. It sounds most likely like a connector problem between the LCD and the power supply. Does it only happen out on the water (vibration or shaking)?

Getting updates for my navman


the main problem is technology moves on every 24 months and the maps get more and more complicated with resolution and size that outstrips the old GPS with 100Mb memories which were fine 5 years ago. The value of any GPS is halved aftyer 12 months and halved again at 24 months and 6 months further on is likely to see it worthless entirely as it has no further support from map makers who govern the industry, not the hardware people as you might think.; Upgrade and bite the bullet there are many cheaper options out there now than Garmin or Magellan.Some GPS are even as low as $99 with up to date maps Check Ebay..

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Maps update


Navman is awful on support for map updates, which they claim are the latest. I've had mine less than a year and have decided to sell it and replace it with a Garmin. You can get maps that are 1-3 years old, even though Navman says 10 months old, for $149 USD. Horrible Company, it should be struck by lightning and let it burn to the ground!
