Question about Navman iCN 520 GPS Receiver

Update maps for iCN 520

  • Posted by on

I want to update the maps, but I don't know how.
It has a memory card in that carries the maps, so I don't know how I could update that on my home computer.
Also, ho can I tell if the respective maps I use have been updated. I live in a new estate and I want to know that that estate's maps are visible before I would purchase an update.

  • jkirley I have an iCN and I live in a brand new suburb on the outskirts of town. I cannot get any recognisable GPS until I travel to the neighbouring suburb. I would like to upgrade my maps, so I no longer have this problem

Answer # 1

You can not update the official Navman maps on this device. You can however unlock the iCN520 and install other GPS software on it. The iCN520 can run virtually all the major GPS software available today; from Tomtom to Miomap and beyond.

Instructions on how to unlock the iCN520 can be found at:
Once unlocked you can even install games, emulators and several PPC applications. With Coreplayer installed you can watch movies and listen to mps3 from the Navman.
