I have icn520 - bought an external aerial for it off e-bay now get full strength signal evertytime within seconds - well worth about a tenner rather than ditching the 520 which is was about to do!

It was the windscreen causing the problem for me

I have had the same issue.

You need to make sure that you are using it outside the first time you search for the sats. It can take up to 15 mins to get a set lock depending on the strength of signal you get in your area.

If you are near an airport or military installation then you will possibly get restricted signal anyway as GPS signals are less powerful near these installations.

I tried mine (from a completely cold start) and it did not find any sats at all. I was in the house at the time with the unit suckered to the window, but this did not help either.

If you are behinf athermic glass, this can also cause problems. Try it outside some time and see if it gets a lock.

Hope this helps.

My navman icn 520 wont find a gps signal and just keeps waiting for gps


I found that if you open out the receiver at the back and make sure it is touching the windscreen it works for me. If not I don't get a signal. It is worse in one of our cars because it has a heat reflective windscreen.

Navman icn 520 stuck on USB screen


I had this problem when I completely deleted the Backup folder from \My Flash Disk.

Restoring the backup folder allowed the 520 to operate properly again.

It is possible that you have a corrupted APPStartupSec.exe application. Without this file working it appears that the NAVMAN waits in USB mode for ever!

Hope this helps.

There are two possibilities:

1) it is a software problem, in this case you can solve it downloading and installing a firmware update. You can download latest software from here.
This is most likely situation.


2) If the above did not work it means that you have an hardware problem, probably the touchscreen is slightly faulty, or the lcd ribbon cable is not well connected. In this case I suggest to take the navman to service.

The CD is not available for download from Navman it seems, but you can get it at thepiratebay.com. Just search for 'navman icn' and you'll find what you need, I just did. Better learn how to download torrents though! :)
