    I can not recharge my NAV MAN the message on the screens says, that it can not connect to power supply even though the unit is on charge. I have also used another charger to see if I can isolate the problem.

    I don't really know how to solve this problem.

Hello brocstar,

You could have a problem either with the power cord itself or the DC input jack on your GPS.

When you say you wiggled the "power lead" to fix the problem I believe you are referring to the actual power cord. If so, it's possible that the cord has a short that has progressively gotten worse and eventually caused the cord to fail. In that case it should be a relatively simple fix to simply replace the power cord and that's where I would start.

If replacing the power cord doesn't work then the problem likely is with the GPS itself and the unit may need factory service to repair the DC jack, battery or charge circuitry.

Hope this helps,

Navman icn 720 gps will not power on

Poss that the battery is totally dead, and therfore will not power up even when on ac or 12v charger lead. Often the battery is part of the circuit, and if the battery is dead rather than just weak or discharged, then the circuit is incomplete.

I posted on here how to remove the battery, you can get a replacement quite easily. Also would be an idea to search out a correct output charger, or maybe borrow one just to determine if the problem was with the battery rather than a blown unit.

Good Luck

Navan will not switch on

It sounds o me as though the battery is dead or flat - if you can get hold of a usb - mini usb cable and a usb mains charger from somebody (if you do have one yourself) get them plug it it to the mains and leave to charge for at least 12 (preferably 24 hours) - it should be working fine then. (if you do not have a usb mains adapter - plug it into a pc - but leave the pc on to charge it)

The battery is probably run down so much that it doesn't have enough juice to power up - this happens usually if you haven't used it for a while because the battery is being used up to remember where the last GPS position was.

If charging still fails to fx it - then the unit needs a new battery - contactnavman support in this case.

When I try to update my navman It says I'm not connected and I am?

Hi - yes it probably is a driver thing. Navman's install software apparently doesn't install the Windows driver - you have to do it manually.

I just found this how-to page on Navman's website, and it worked for me:

Good luck

Software update

Navman in no longer offering support for it's iCN 510. I am really mad about this. I spent $400 2 years ago for something that will not have anymore update. Here is there reply when I wrote to them about it. Class action suit anyone?

Dear Henry,

Thank you for contacting Navman Technical Support.

We do apologize for the inconvenience. Navman has decided not to release further map updates for these device due to changes in technology over the last year. We have changed the chipset and software platform and are unable to update this device. The Navman 500 series was released with an updated map version last 2005.

If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us, we'll be more than happy to help.
Kind regards,

Technical Support Team

Can NavMan 520 charge via USB?

that is probably due to the battery being totaly dead,
try using a mobile phone charger (nokia),
usb is for data transfers.
