5500 Navman no brightness selection
Its water ingress causing a short in the high voltage wiring PCB.
Open the unit with a 1.5mm allen key, unscrew the power/data cable sockets with a spanner and GPS antenna inlet with an 8mm socket (no antenna socket on i models) .
Where water has arced there will be burning black on the green PCB evident, cut the gold PCB flat wire and remove the section around the burn.
scrape a small amount of green off the gold flat PCB wire so you can solder a new wire to bypass the short. any 2.5mm insulated wire will do to bridge the gap you have just scraped away, there is plenty of room for a 1 inch wire.
Dry the unit and seal with silicone to prevent re occurrence.
Its a 2 hour repair requiring a high DIY soldering standard but off set it against the time it will take to reload you waypoints in a new plotter , its well worth the trouble.

Navman Tracker 5500
I am having same trouble. I contacted Navman NSW and went through all the settings without result. It was suggested that the problem could be the external antenna, if not a fault in the machine. I have seen an after market antenna for about $19 so I might try that. It does seem as though the antenna is not talking to the Tracker.

I want to change the language on my navman from German to english
First of all the language was Finnish and not German.
I managed to get a translation from Finnish to english for the word
Then i went to the system menu and selected kieli, then englanninkieli
then pressed enter, this changed the language to english.
I did not have to do a factory reset.
Thank you for your trouble.
