Question about Navigon 7200t Car GPS Receiver

2 Answers

I have had my navigon 7200T for almost 2-years, and have been very happy with it until now!. Early this year I replaced the original 2GB MicroSD card with an 8GB Micro SDHC card, since the Fresh Map download would not work on the smaller card (there was not enough memory ... even when the card was wiped clean ... for the download). About 2 months ago, the unit froze-up while I was navigating around town, and on a cell phone call using the handsfree bluetooth. When it froze, the screen changed from the map to a repeating character string. The bluetooth connection remained active, and my call was not disrupted. Since that time, I am unable to use both nav and bluetooth without a similar freeze up in nav. Further, the unit is, apparently, no longer charging the battery, even though the LED on the power cable (original issue) shows green. I found this out when I attempted to install the Q2 map update a few weeks ago, only to find that the unit would not turn on without being plugged in. 1. How do I go about getting the unit repaired (e.g. battery replacement and/or charging circuit)? 2. What could have caused the problem to begin with? Ideally I would like to keep this from happening, again.

    I'm not certain that the problem is solely with the phonelink.

I'm assuming that you tried to reset the unit and it didn't have any effect. In that case the defect is most likely hardware.
1. the unit and its battery can be repaired or replaced only by the authorised dealer in your area/country or - even better - by the factory itself. To arrange a service visit you must contact them either by phone 
http://www.navigon.com/portal/int/kundenservice/faq.html?id=2159&content_identifier=faq&page=1
or just go there - the address and other contact details of your local service center should be in the warranty papers.
2. apparently the Windows CE in your device just crashed so probably it's a fault in the memory or the processor - hardware failure, not caused by something you did or didn't do.

The mobile phone emmiting the transmission has damaged the circuit ,a diode failed and the radio emmisions from the phone backfed the circuit ,Now like my wine cooler the cost of a repair on anything electronic like this or console thats electronic you might just as well bin it and buy a new one ,get a cheap one as they only have a limited life and buying what you think is a good one is just a waste of money ,well i think so because to be honest when mine broke in similar circumstances i havent bothered to replace it ,as iam in spain and speak de lingo i just stop and ask or go into a local bar have a coffee and ask directions ,but this spain where if you stop in the middle of the road and ask directions everyone joins in t,he car behind ,the passer by even the local policeman on his scooter bike .

NAVIGON 7200T IZ FULLY CHARGED BUT SHUTS OFF


These units have a circuit which detects if the charger is plugged in. It could be a problem with that circuit in which case you would have to get it repaired.
