Basicly that tells me you have a faulty or dead battery, does the unit stay on at all when unplugged? If the unit shuts off when unplugged this means you need to replace the battery in your unit.

please post your navman model if you require further assistance.

    Whats the model? Il check for a software update.

  • Ekse Aug 20, 2008

    In the front of the device it should say F10 or F50 for example.

    Software updates are available on the navman pages, don't install a update if its not ment for your device

  • Ekse Aug 20, 2008

    Yes that does, here is the update

    F-Series only (F20, F30, F40 or F50, NOT F10).

    Please note that a USB cable (not supplied with the product)
    is required to connect your device to a PC in order to apply this

  • Ekse Aug 20, 2008

    if that doesn't help at all you can send a support request directly to navman they will know exactly what is wrong.

I had to buy a new in car charger for my navman s30,but when i plug it in to the sat nav & cigerette socket it keeps showing a computer,usb & navman picture.

  • Turn the Navman off by holding the power button in the upper left corner of the device until the screen goes blank.
  • Plug the unit into its charger using the USB port on the bottom of the unit. The battery indicator light next to the power switch should turn orange, indicating that the device is charging. Once the light has turned green the charge is complete. If the light does not turn on, verify that the car charger is plugged into a working outlet.

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.

Battery Charging Navman S90i

The problem is that most of the chargers have the output of 5V/0.5A. The charger for NAVMAN (C30 in my case) has 5V/1A. And that is causing the trouble. The GPS is undercharged and is switching off itself. Buy one which specify the output power: 5V/1A. Hope I solved your problem
