Anne,

If it is a battery problem then it should cone on and work when you connect it to the charger. Does it?

If not then does it show any signs of life when you power it on?

If there are any signs of life then it s the firmwarethat has gone corrupt and needs reinstalation. Please get it done.

Www navman support


The unit originated in Australia where all Maps originate. They are not doing well at addressing updated Maps and providing customer support.

My sat nav will not charge


Hello -

Possible solutions:

1. Clean the contact on your car charger - it may be dirty and not properly connecting.
2. Carefully, using compressed air if possible, clean the charging port on your navigation unit - it may have debris obstructing the charging connection. *Please do not blow into the port or use any liquid to clean it*
3. Attempt to charge the unit in another vehicle - your vehicle may be source of the issue.
4. Bring the unit inside and connect to wall outlet our home computer - the power cord for the vehicle may be malfunctioning.

Please note: modern battery technology does have a shelf life. Eventually the internal battery of the until will stop holding a charge and only function when connected to a proper power source. If your satellite unit is older, this may be the issue. If it is relatively new (less than two years old) and will not hold a charge, the unit may be malfunctioning and should be serviced by a professional or replaced.

Navman 40i appears to charge up but will not


if the unit is more than 2 years old the chances are the battery is defective/worn out, you say battery appears to charge up, so think you are unsure of the battery condition.

Approached unit with air of trained appliance repair professional. Found Chinese-made product of vastly inferior quality, began series of tests, moving on to systematic disassembly finally sledgehammering the unit thence noting it failed to improve performance. resolved to not buy junk made in China or elsewhere. I've been "fix-ya'd" all right! Over and out.

Laptop Mousepad and Keyboard stuttering, slow


This may be a battery power monitor issue. Try disabling the "Mircosoft ACPI- Compliant Control Method Battery" device. This is located in Control Panel-->System-->Hardware Tab-->Device Manager-->Batteries. Had similar problem with 2 Acer Aspire series laptops (diff models). 2 and 3 year old. Original batteries (both still hold charges for 1.5 hrs of normal usage). Running WinXP, one with SP2 and other had SP3. Both came in the last month with slow jerky TPAD function and nearly non responsive keyboard access. Checked the usual; virus, spyware, hijacking, driver conflict etc. Cloned drive and factory installed..still same problem with kb & mouse. However an external USB keyboard and mouse functioned normally (no lag). Noticed with Battery removed kb & mouse was normal. Finally found disabling ACPI control battery device resolved this issue while allowing laptop to run on either battery or AC.

No battery communications


Hi,

You will get that message when the communications cable is not hooked up. It looks like a phone line and daisy chains from one battery to another and ends at the Matrix Control unit. If you have those installed and it still says no communication the system need service.

If you have a volt meter you can check the voltage from each battery at the plug. It should be 48 volts or more, usually on a fresh battery pack it will read 54.0+ volts.

Hope this helps,
Dean

Suddenly turning off


Your battery is dead. You'll need to return it to Garmin for repairs. Mine did the exact same thing. Functioned fine in the cradle - showed full battery - but shut off immediately upon removal. They know about the problem and shipped me a new unit for free.
