Hi,

I have purchased a Navman F20, but the connectivity kit for updates is not available yet.

However, this kit only seems to be a standard usb cable and their software.

Could I download Navman's "Patcher80.exe" and use a normal usb cable?

Regards

Paul

Hi Paul.
You can use any USB cable to connect F20 to PC, but you need to purchase from Navman all the rest (software, drivers).

Navman F20 is not on our list of recommended GPS devices as it does not support customised POIs.

Navman F20 now supports Custom POI's and you can NOT download and install the Patcher80.exe and use it as it needs the F20 software installed to update it.

The SmartST software comes with the PC connectivity kit which as stated above isn't available yet. This software contains the program and drivers for the Navman F20.

I can also confirm that the Navman F20 supports custom POI's.

Guys - when you d/load the service pack - it will ask you to extract into a director. Inside this directory is included heUSB drivers that will allow you to connect the F20 to your operating system via a USB cable. A standard digital camera USB cable is all that is required. When first connecting theF F20 to your PC you will be asked to find the drivers - provided you have extracted the F20 patch to your PC - the drivers are located in the USB directory of the patch. Once this is complete you will be able to update the F20 to the latest Patch.

To load the drivers for the F20, download the Navman's Service Pack.

Install the SP then goto the USB folder- that's where the drivers are! Once the drivers are installed, you can run the SP and the F20's firmware will be updated....good luck.

Hi,

STEP ONE:

You need to go to My Computer, Program Files, Navman, Find the USB folder... that is where your drivers are...soo....

STEP 2:

Go to device manager (Windows Key and Pause Break then hardware tab), at the bottom is your USB's - find the one with the yellow "?" and right click, properties.. driver, update driver. Use the location of step one for the driver update...easy...
