Base from the description of your problem what we need to do here is to reset your unit and to do that follow this , there is a small hole at the back of the unit (from memory, but might be on the top) just use a pen to press and hold it for 10 seconds and then restart the unit and check if its back to original state.

This is sometimes caused by corrupted files on the flash disk. What I would advise doing is to restore the backup folder on the flash disk and try and start the device again.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

How to fix stuck on transfer screen


Hold down the on button until the screen goes black. wait two min, then turn it back on. If that doesn't work, try connecting your device to your computer and go online to the manufacture website. Most have a way to check your device and fix/update it.

Screen is showing computer, usb connection, navman which are joined together by a serious of dots with the computer screen to usb connection showing green lights


The F20 Desktop Software and Service pack on the CD's from navman do not work, as you have seen. The solution is to go to the navman website and download this Service Pack

Be sure your f20 is connected to the USB cable and turned on displaying the USB Connection screen. Leave it on during the entire process.

Once downloaded, run this self extracting file and let it install automatically. After it is installed and ran.....you will see the same error again of failure to connect.

At this point you must reinstall the driver manually. Right click on your "My Computer icon, Select Devices, then properties on the navman. You should see a yellow "?" next to a statement "Unknown Device" in the USB devices. Click on the "Reinstall Driver" and select a specific location or the Have Disk button. The USB driver is now located in C:\program files\Navman\f20servicepack\USB directory.

You should get a button that now says Okay at the bottom, click onto it and allow the MS program to update the drivers. You should see the device screen change and say "This device is operating properly". You can then close the windows and run the F20 desktop program. It should connect then.

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 My50T - screen has frozen, can't get any other screen apart from initial start-up screen (except for screen showing connected to computer when connected by usb).


Had a similar problem with a MY60T.
Spoke to Navman support.
1. Connect your unit to the computer.
2. Use windows explorer to go to the Navman folder
3. Go to the database folder.
4. Delete "Database.db"
5. Switch off & re-start you unit. The databse file is re-created on startup

I have a navman s90i . When i plug the car charger in the screen shows a compuyer runing into a navman via a cable then shuts down then try's to start but goes to the above screen


No solution but exactly the same model and exactly the same problem. When I put the car charger on the unit, it goes off and then comes back on and ust shows a computer as though the only option it can handle via usb is a computer connection. Interestingly, it still charges, but just becomes useless as a satnav as there are no maps, directions or any scree functionality at all.
