Question about Sony nav-u NV-U70 GPS Receiver
When I connect my Nav U 70 to the computer I get a Connection cancellation notice and the unit will not connect - the computer does not recognize it.
This is the same computer I originally downloaded the full SatNav data from (CD) and the unit worked fine. Sony does not appear to have any technical after sales service engineers. The unit is very nice but I need assistance. thanks
First, You MUST use the AC power adapter when connecting the unit to the computer. But if you are using the AC power and the message still is the same, try the following:
Note:Because each of these steps is a possible solution to the issue, check the status of the device after completeing each step.
!. Restart the computer
2. Close all applications that may be running
3. Temporarily disable any antivirus software you may be running
4. Reset the Nav-U unit by placing a safty pin or something likewise into the reset channel and hold down for approx. 15 sec.
5. Uninstall Microsoft ActiveSync from the Add/ Remove programs and then reinstall it using the Nav-U DVD
6. If possible, test it on another computer.
The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your isue. if not, service may be required.The Sony eService Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony authorized dealer.

By MS Active sync from computer delete file Mounted Volume/my
flash/sony/nav-u.exe (the folder SONY is hidden, you must set show
hidden files in your comuter first). And then replace old navi file by
exe file of total commander CE version ( download is free on site of
developer) .You must rename the totalcmd.exe to nav-u.exe. Now after
reboot is allowed everything, including executing any other navi
software like tomtom, igo, navigon and many other (multimedia players).
The oficial navi (old navigon) by sony is not so good in compare with
new navi soft. .. enjoy.
PS> the USB active sinc conn is working only if you plug with usb also power supply, in every other cases is written message "connection cancel" so you must plug the power supply

Had the same problem. Make sure the ac adapter is hooked up to the unit. This will not work on battery mode.
