I want you to try the following procedure first:

1. Connect Navman GPS to PC via mini-USB cable.

2. Go to 'Start'

3. Go to 'My Computer'

4. Open the Navman Unit

5. Open the 'Navman' folder

6. Open the 'Database' folder

7. Delete the following file only - 'dababase.db'

8. Close the folders

9. Disconnect the mini-USB cable then restart the Navman GPS by sliding the switch to 'Restart' then back to 'On' after 10 seconds.


The database.db file will be generated automatically once the folder is closed.


You can also try and reset the unit by switching the on/off/reset toggle located on the top of the unit to the Reset position.

Here is your software update: Download Software Update (145MB)*

If none of the above solutions fix your Navman GPS, you may need to have your device replaced. This GPS comes with a 2 year warranty, else you may have to pay for repair/replacement.

Hello
You can try a reset to correct this problem, if that doesn't resolve the issue you have a hardware problem and you will either need tosend the GPS back to NAVMAN for servioce or repalce it.

    Sorry but you have a hard fault and will need to have NAVMAN repair the GPS. They do not release any technical info to the public, only their repair center have this. So I have answered your inquiry as accurately as I can. Thanks

Navman car gps model s45 when finding route sometimes stops at around 97%


Check for connecction issues and also if the GPS is tracked or otherwise it is best to get this checked from the dealership specially if the product is new.

My navman touchscreen is frozen, it switches on then won't go ant further than the select language screen?


Maybe my related problem with the TomTom One will help. The software was freezing as soon as the touch screen was pressed to enter a destination. The previous owner sold it to me on Ebay for half of what it was worth because he thought it was broken. I fixed it by plugging it into my PC using the USB cable and registered it with the TomTom website, then downloaded a free software update (Operating system - not a map update) and installed it to the device. After a reset the TomTom worked 100%!! Bargain!!

I know the Navman is not a TomTom but you sound like you are having a similar "Software" issue that an update / reinstall could possibly solve.
