The gps sreen is disable and i cannot inter
My name is Mike, I am a GPS expert. A lot of your problem is updating issues, and rebooting issue. Please read all this information below. Thanks So Much, Here is some of my personal experiences, Sense I am also paid to test new units that hit the market through manufacturers.
Update: September 8, 2011: Navigon was taken over by Garmin. There are NO MORE USA MAP UPDATES for this unit. If you buy it you will NOT be able to update the USA maps.
I'm terrible with directions so I bought this hoping it would help me and it did. It found the satellites immediately and kept me moving along quickly. It updates quickly and even if you choose a different route it recalculates a new route and maps it out instantly. The touch screen is responsive and easy to use. It's well made and doesn't feel cheap. The windshield mount works easily and holds the unit in place.
When you register the unit at the Navigon website, you'll find out that a software update is not necessary as of today. FreshMaps is supposed to be available this month (July) and you can sign up for E-mail notification as to when they'll be ready for download. The unit comes with a 2 gig memory card and you can install a larger one when it's needed. The operating system for the mapping program is Windows CE. No problems with it yet.
So far, I'm happy with this unit. It does what I need without a load of unnecessary bells and whistles.
August 3, 2008: As of today, FreshMaps update is now available for this unit. Just go to the Navigon website, log into your account and download the Navigon downloader program. Install the program on your computer and you're ready to go. You can even backup your old maps with this downloader program which is recommended before you download the new maps and install them.
October 1, 2008: Navigon now gives you FREE lifetime traffic information. You just can't go wrong. I've been very happy with this unit.
HERE IS SOME MORE COMPUTER BORING INFORMATION TOO:
The Navigon models, like many competitors, use a customized version of Microsoft's Windows CE as their basic operating system - augmented by a software package which includes the Map information, Points Of Interest, and the manufacturer's particular 'twist' on a User Interface (what you deal with, onscreen, to enter information and use the device). The Navigon units use a 2GB SD Memory Card to hold it all - which allows for an easy hardware upgrade (pop in a bigger Card) if the data-handling needs ever grow beyond 2GB. (In comparison, my ancient Garmin had a 32MB internal chip, and wasn't expandable.)
BOTTOM LINE, IS YOU NEED TO TURN POWER OFF, AND AS YOU TURN IT ON, HOLD ON BUTTON ALL THE WAY THROUGH BOOT UP UNTIL IT TURNS COMPLETELY ON THEN RELEASE ON BUTTON. IF THIS MANUAL REBOOT PROCESS DOES NOT WORK, NEED TO UPDATE UNIT.
I HOPE THIS HELPS, MIKE, FROM FIXYA
