Hi all,

I am going to visit America soon and I have been trying to find out how to get USA maps onto my F10 but unsuccessfully I haven't been able to get too far or even get much information. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated Smile.

Thank You

Not available as far as I know

You will need a new sat nav unit which has USA mapping available

Sadly this appears to be the case, in terms of map updates Navman have never been a favourite of mine and since the take over by Mio the support for legacy devices the situation seems non existant.

If you do intend to purchase a new device consider TomTom or Garmin which both offer a decent upgrade scheme for older units so they can be updated with new maps/ different regional maps.

Another option might be to hire a GPS nav unit along with the car in the USA, worth considering as it might be cheaper for a one week trip - Mike

Thank You for your replies guys Smile

I was thinking the same thing myself in that USA maps were not available for the F10- but then I came accross this on the Navman site:

http://ukstore.navmanstores.com/Map%20Unlock%20Keys/USA%20&%20Canada%20Unlock%20Code___264.htm

I don't really understand how it all works but this seems to state that USA maps are availble for the F10 with this unlock code, connectivity kit + SP1?

Okay yes - missed this one when I looked there!!!

You will need as you say, to purchase the unlock key and also http://ukstore.navmanstores.com/Accessories/F10/F10%20Connectivity%20Kit___276.htm if you don't already have it

You also have to own the original DVD that came with the unit (or maybe comes part of the Connectivity Kit for F series, I know it was included with my S Series)

Also a Windows Vista or XP computer with internet connection (not Windows 7)

You then connect up the unit to the computer, runing NavDesk software and under mapping there are unlock options - the data is ALREADY on the DVD, you just need the code to unlock and access it on your F10

Seems a good solution

I've got an F10 as well, and am about to move from New Zealand to the US as a permanent move. My F10 is loaded with Australia maps.

Although we can spend a bunch of money on unlock codes and connectivity disk (which didn't come with my device when I bought it), I'm really reluctant to put a bunch of money in a device that will soon be completely obsolete, if not already. I'd sooner just buy a new, more current device. Prices have come down so fast on devices with a bigger screen than the F10.

I paid $379 (Australian) for this thing 3 years ago, and can barely get a current map for it now. If I drop a wad of cash on it through the Navman unlock code link, I'm asking myself how much longer will the device still be viable?

So....for this F10 I'm considering using the information and software at this site:
http://navmanunlocked.wikispaces.com/Unlock

I'm NOT a fan of unlocking devices, but it's starting to feel like this might be the only realistic option left to save the F10 from the scrap heap.

Can anyone talk me out of unlocking?
