Hi,

It is possible that your unit has sustained a firmware glitch and therefore has locked in the current function. I would suggest a systems/hard reset. Without a specific model, most I can suggest at the moment is to look for a small recessed pinhole (if present). Additionally you can try removing the power/battery and wait for a couple of minutes before trying, that is to dissipate whatever residualpower maybe left inside. Doing so would revert the unit back to factory default but of course would also delete all user configurations and settings.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

    F10 is an entirely different beast, not a single thing in common with F20-50.



    sir.i think there is no connection or an error in communicating with the navam n the usb connection so that data is not transfered properly.



    i likely advise u to ensure the connection properly,reset the system to default settings.



    Also pl update ur navdesk software



    thanks for using Fixya..



    have a nice day



  • Harrish Mugundhan Jul 06, 2008

    If your F10 displays the USB screen please reset your unit. To do this press and hold down the Power Button for 10 seconds, the unit will switch itself off. Please re-start your unit as normal

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.

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.

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.
