Yes, that would work but then you still need a socket to plug that into which all takes up a lot of space. But as regards connecting to the N520 one of the plugs that comes with that charger would probably do the trick. As I said, the special plug that connects directly to the device has a standard ...

Yes, the N5xx has a special connector that is used for both the mains and the car chargers. The USB cable also has this type of conector as part of the cable and has a socket for the mains charger to plug into. So probably all I am looking for is a 12V to 5V converter as presumably the device itself...

The N 5xx series uses a standard power plug (or more correctly a socket) to connect to its own special connector so it would be very straightforward to solder such a standard socket to whatever power supply I can come up with. But it may well be that I'll have to end up with a floating cigarette soc...

Thanks, Mike. Getting the 12V power supply isn't the problem as my car has an accessory socket under the dash. The problem is how to connect that 12V supply to my N520 as it needs some sort of charger device rather than just a straight 12V input. As I said, I could just install an additonal lighter ...

[N520] 12V power supply for N520 for in-car use

I know I can use the cigarette lighter power supply that comes with the N520, but I want to hard wire in a power supply under the dash so as to leave my lighter socket free. My car has an accessory socket in the wiring loom and I could wire in a lighter socket and plug the charger into that, but is ...

Navigon MN 6 on N520

Anybody upgraded to MN6 on their N520 yet? It looks like an excellent deal at GBP100 for software plus full European maps.

Stefan,

Did you try doing a either a Cold Start or a full reset of the system? How to do these are explained in the Manual.

Perhaps a hard reset might be worth trying if you haven't already done so? It's detailed on p23 of the Instruction Manual.

I've tested this with a PDF file and with a JPG and it works fine! What file type are you trying to save?

When I download a file I opt to 'save as' and then I get a screen where I fill in the name, folder (if any), type and location. The drop down menu at location offers main memory or SD-MMC card. If I opt for SD card it saves the file to the card without problems. Do you get the same choices?

Are you trying to get a satellite fix indoors or outside? I find that my N520 is n't very good at getting a fix indoors but is fine outside. I have kept the GPS settings it came with and it has been fine with those.
