Question about GPS
Posted by Anonymous on
If you have any chance of receiving a repair or replacement unit from Navman, do that. I do not know their return/repair policy but trying to fix it yourself may void any chance you have of getting real customer support, unfortunately.
Otherwise, take a look at this post:

He says there is a paperclip hole. This should do a factory reset and may fix your device. Otherwise he claims that reformatting the drive then "safely disconnecting hardware' may fix the device.

Navman is awful on support for map updates, which they claim are the latest. I've had mine less than a year and have decided to sell it and replace it with a Garmin. You can get maps that are 1-3 years old, even though Navman says 10 months old, for $149 USD. Horrible Company, it should be struck by lightning and let it burn to the ground!

I had the same problem so I went to garmin.com/kenwood and downloaded the latest update to my pc unzipped the file and burned it to a cd put the cd in my dnx5120 and updated my system and my maps came back ... read the install instruction on their web site and this should solve the problem at least it did for me ....good luck hope this was helpful to all ...

You should be able to install your old map from the DVD/CD that originally came with your Navman - you don't need a Product Key for this, even if it prompts you for one.
It appears that the commercially available 2009 map for the S-Series does *not* cover the S30 3D, just the non-3D versions, although that's not at all obvious from what's on Navman's web-site, so you have my sympathies if you bought it expecting it to work...

Magellan support was actually pretty good helping me with the exact same
issue. The problem (at least in my case) was that the map files were
fragmented. I tried using the Windows defragmenter, but that made
fragmentation even worse! The Magellan support engineer recommended I
download UltraDefrag instead:
Here's what I had to do to completely resolve my issue:
1. Download and install UltraDefrag
2. Connect my GPS to my PC
3. Move the MAP directory from my GPS drive (J:) to my hard disk
4. In UltraDefrag, make sure Action > Skip removable media is not selected
5. Run the optimizer (Ctrl-F7 or Action > Full optimization) after selecting the GPS drive (J: on my computer)
6. Copy the MAP files back to the J: drive AFTER optimization has completed
I double-checked the fragmentation after the files were copied and got 0%. After disconnecting the GPS from the PC, the unit rebooted and doing an address search no longer takes 15 seconds. POI searchs are also much faster than before.
