    I know that I wouldn't have bought this unit if I knew that it was going to be outdated the minute that I walked out the door.......

  • Anonymous Dec 22, 2008

    every time i power off the unit the clock resets and satt takes a long time to be located. NO NEW MAP UPDATE really sucks and sanyo should do something for their consumer.

    Half of LOS ANGELES does not display (or find) the streets yet the POI for that area appear.  Is this normal?  Am I waiting on the mysterious 2009 Upgrade everyone else here is?  Anyone from LA have this unit working?  strange.

    have a sanyo 4050 gps - can't find a way to update the maps - in new areas the gps is more lost than I am..

  • rrasberry55 Jan 23, 2009

    I paid $200 for this thing last year. I called them the middle of 2008, about 6 mos after I purchased it, and spoke with a very rude person about upgrading the map. It needed updated as soon as I purchased it. She said that an upgrade would be available the beginning of the year (2009). I went to the www.easystreetnav.com site and there isn't even a place to request or even search for an upgrade. I am so disappointed and pissed off. This thing is worthless to me. I'm going to contact someone at Sanyo and see what's going on.

    Takes a long time to catch GPS signal and maps are outdated. Will wait for a few more days to find an update for navigation SW and map update. If cant find any, I am planning to buy a Garmin. Have to blame myself for choosing this cheap ****.

    Low grade unit with 0 tech support and out dated maps

  • penntim Mar 26, 2012

    We all should consider the option of "Class Action" suit against Sanyo. Selling a product with no support.

September 20th 2009. Just checked the website http://www.easystreetnav.com/ You can purchase a dvd map ugrade here for $79.00

Personaly I think this is BS. There should have been something sooner and way cheaper. A lot of bells and whistles but sorely lacking support and not all that great over all. Id be happier with better navigation then backup camera's and "fm" transmiters.

Unfortunately there is no solution...... I contacted NAVTEQ and I’ve got the following answer:


Hello Jane,

Thank you for contacting NAVTEQ. Currently Sanyo does utilize our map databases however we do not produce nor distribute discs for their systems at this time. For information please contact Sanyo directly at http://sanyoservice.custhelp.com or 800.421.5013; select option 2 then 3.

If you need additional assistance, please send us your feedback by replying to this email or by speaking with one of our agents at the number provided below, Monday through Friday.

Kind regards,

NAVTEQ Customer Service
P.O. Box 1588
Orem, UT 84059
888.628.6277
nabc_english@navteq.com

After that, I called 1800 as suggested and I got the answer I didn’t want to hear:

Sanyo said that “The policy of the company is not to update NVM4050 EVER… the only one to be update is NVM 4370” ….

So, we are stuck with our NVM4050…..

How about everybody that owns a NVM4050 calls them ?!?!?!?!

Sanyo is the worths in GPS and the customer service sucks I have the same problem no tech support Unfortunately there is no solution

Posted on Apr 10, 2010

Sanyo has to have the worst customer support for this product. If we would update the maps or POI then it would be a great product.

Did you get help on this? I need the same kind of help. If you know how to update the map, please email me at tlw@q.com.

Thank You

Posted on Aug 24, 2008

I just contacted the Sanyo Service and came to know that there are no new updates available and if they release one it will be on the website http://www.easystreetnav.com/ and we cannot even update the maps by other third party means, which looks bad on the product support side.. :-(
Hope this information is helpful to you all..

Unable to get India maps for loading in to it. Can you help by letting me know how to go about?


You should contact Sanyo.
The maps on the device are from Navteq (smart2go).
Sanyo isn't on the manufacturer list.

How to unlock maps after re-installing them?


I ended up in the same situation and called (800) 421-5013 for help. The gentelman who assisted me said that how the DVD holds the same data as factory Sanyo 4050 GPS and upgrading has locked your device. To resolve the discussed issue one have to delete everything (plug-in your device via USB cable --> My Computer --> Removable disk) and install fresh copy onto your navigation device via that DVD.

Map Update


I got the chance to talk to 1st navteq and they requested that I speak with sanyo, then I got the chance to talk to sanyo customer service who couldn't offer any help other than asking me to wait till December or January when their version of 2009 map upgrade will be made available.There was one interesting revelation I kind of found out on Garmin 770 too; the same addresses could not be plotted or navigated by this also so I think it is a common factor and these are all somewhat new addresses of new developments. My suggestion will be wait till 2009 map upgrade is made available.
