The wiring going around the digitizer screen is broken. Find a dead unit on Ebay (hopefully one with a good screen) and replace the screen. But with the cost of the Nuvi 200 under $200 and refurbished C330 for under $150, it might be time to replace the unit.

Can't find satellites


The internal antenna BNC connection (the little steel bayonet that the secures the antenna or extender cable) is a common failure on these units. The threaded retaining ring on the outside of the antenna BNC comes loose when installing/removing the antenna connection, and eventually the BNC rotates and the solder joint inside fails. This happened on mine recently, if you are handy fixing small mechanical parts and a good solderer it is pretty  easy to fix. Remove the batteries, remove all six outer case screws (but not the one with the oval metal plate) and gently pull the housing apart. Check the solder connection of the coax wire to the BNC pin & shield. If it's broken and the BNC is loose in the GPS case, tighten the outer BNC retaining ring VERY tight, add a drop of thin super glue (Hot Stuff or Permabond CyA, etc) to keep the ring/BNC/case mated, then repair the coax solder  connection. Replace all the screws and test it outside. If it's an aviation GPS you would of course have this done by an FAA licensed avionics specialist. Wink wink.

Can not open it to change battery tomtom 1 3rd edition help pleast john


I take no responsibility if you damage your tt in this procedure.
To open the tt one third edition and change the battery you will need a # 8 and a # 6 torx bit. Remove the 4 # 8 torx screws on the back of your tt. After removing the screws carefully insert a guitar pic between the two halves starting at the top and continue around to the sides. Be careful so you don't damage the case. After you have gotten the three sides loose (top, right side, and left side gently pull the two halves apart from the top (be very careful at this point so you don't dislodge the USB port). Do NOT take it completely apart at this point because you have to remove the battery and speaker connections (they just pull out with a little wiggling motion). After you have taken the case apart and disconnected the battery and speaker cables you will need a # 6 torx to remove the board (don't skip this step because the battery is held in with two sided tape and you have to pry the battery out). Now that the board has been removed take a small screwdriver and pry up on the battery. Now all you have to do is reassemble your tt in the reverse order. Just remember the smaller screws are for the board

Broken Mini-USB Port


This is a very common problem on all GPS systems. The USB port comes loose and disconnects from the motherboard. Sometimes we can re-solder it if it did not come off completely. Sometimes the complete board has to be replaced. I do this all the time for my customers. Your unit must be opened and inspected by a competent repair person (like me) to determine what needs to be done.

Cannot get into tomtom one v3


After the screws are out, just put something (I used a fingernail, but you might want to use something like a butterknife or a thin bladed screwdriver) between the silver front casing and the black back casing at the top front corner. Then gently pry until it separates. Do the same thing for the other top corner and the case should just pull loose. Be careful not to stress the cables connecting the speaker and the battery by pulling the back casing more than a few inches from the front casing (the battery and the speaker are attached to the back casing). The battery is held in place with sticky tape. Just disconnect the cable and gently pry it free from the sticky tape.

F20 power port connection broken in unit.


Hi,
I have recently acquired a Navman F20 Satnav with a broken USB port (It was rattling around inside the unit.)

I took apart the case and re-fitted the USB port with no problems at all. Just with a steady hand and a fine tipped soldering iron. I also superglued the port in place to add extra strength.

Put it all back together, and it now charges and connects to the PC exactly as it should.

So, before you throw away a sat nav with this problem, contact me and I can fix it for you, or, alternatively I will offer to buy the broken unit from you.

My Email address is [email protected].

Thanks

Delphi Nav200 gps problem


There are male and female tabs all around the plastic case of the GPS unit itself. Gently pry and push the case halves in and away from each other. Be careful not to lose your cool, as it is frustrating.
