You will need your unit, USB cable and NavDesk program installed.
We advise that you back up any saved data/POI/My places on the Navman to your PC to ensure that you do not lose any of the saved information.
Please note that downloadable maps vary in size. An approximate size is listed below:
Australian Map Data – 350mb
Eastern European Map Data – 700mb

We recommend that you store international mapping data on a separate SD Card in order to retain optimal performance from your unit. You can purchase a micro SD card from any consumer electrical retailer.
Please note: Some settings on your device may change during the installation process. We recommend that you check all settings through the "Preference" menu once you have completed the map installation process prior to driving with your unit.

Please note that when you first turn on the unit overseas, it can take up to 5 minutes for the unit to locate your position. This is because the GPS chip has a memory that allows it to approximate the location of the satellites to pick up the signal faster. When you travel a large distance whilst the unit is off, it needs to be begin the search for satellites from nothing and this is why it may take longer the first time you use the unit overseas. You will also experience this delay upon returning to your local country.
