    Hi Guy,



    I've just bought my Sanyo NVM 4050 GPS Navigator. It came with two discs, one instruction manual DC and one map software DVD. This is a straight forward installation. First, hook up your Sanyo NVM 4050 GPS Navigator to your PC via USB cable. Second, insert a map software DVD in DVD/CD drive and then click the software icon on DVD/CD drive. Choose English and the follow step by step process.



    I got this unit on sale last Friday, May 25, 2008 for $139 at Fry’s Electronics. This is probably the best price in the market. Hey! I love it and have a lot fun using it. There are more features than you ever need them. When you are good with the unit it is fun.



    Good Luck,



    Bouawat

    I'm Having a problem with the DVD installation. I followed the instruction in the manuel installation seemed to go as discribed. I diconnected and hit the reset as instructed and now when I activate Navagation all I get is a blue screen, with a arrow at the bottom and Premium printed at the top of the screen. Nothing else. I bought it yesterday at Fry's and really would like it to work without having to take the darn thing back. Any suggestions?

I Installed my update the day I got it, using Vista. It works fine. My only complaint is the speaker is not loud enough, and the mic is not strong enough for anybody here me on the phone using the bluetooth feature.

The gps is already pre-loaded with the info on the CD - I found this out the hard way...I ran the CD and got a blank screen and cannot use it at all. I contacted Sanyo and they informed me that I crashed it. Now I have to send it to them for repair or replacement. I didn't even get to use it once! I am disappointed that the instructions were not clear about the CD. Now it's back to old fashioned maps for my trip - yuck!

Are you installing the DVD using windows vista? Had the same problem but it worked after installation using windows XP.

Personally, I love this this device. It has all the features compare to others on the market. Nothing can beat the price. Also, it's very hackable. You can run MioPocket on this device to expand your personal needs.

How to unlock maps after re-installing them?


I ended up in the same situation and called (800) 421-5013 for help. The gentelman who assisted me said that how the DVD holds the same data as factory Sanyo 4050 GPS and upgrading has locked your device. To resolve the discussed issue one have to delete everything (plug-in your device via USB cable --> My Computer --> Removable disk) and install fresh copy onto your navigation device via that DVD.

Map Update


I got the chance to talk to 1st navteq and they requested that I speak with sanyo, then I got the chance to talk to sanyo customer service who couldn't offer any help other than asking me to wait till December or January when their version of 2009 map upgrade will be made available.There was one interesting revelation I kind of found out on Garmin 770 too; the same addresses could not be plotted or navigated by this also so I think it is a common factor and these are all somewhat new addresses of new developments. My suggestion will be wait till 2009 map upgrade is made available.

Freezes at street name screen


Yes - bin the Magellan - I have a Roadmate 700 and just bought the updates but to get cameras loaded is a major hassle and Mag Support just do not respond... what a waste of money my Magellan has been, cost over £800!

Am now buying a Tomtom 720T with cameras preloaded - it does an auto update each time yu sit the unit in a cradle attached to your PC.
