    Anyone else experience problems?

    Basically the Navman cannot get a satelite lock until i turn off my Blackberry (found this by chance)

    any ideas how to avoid this?? I have tried it with a Tom Tom with no problems!

    Does the Navman also have bluetooth or some other wireless technology which it scans for first before processing GPS signal ?

    It might be trying to pair without blackberry or something before it processes the GPS signals.

    It doesnt sound like the blackberry is blocking/jamming GPS signals as it sounds like it works fine once it gets signal lock, even if blackberry is turned on.

    No the navman 510i doesnt have any bluetooth and cannot get a satelite lock with Blackberry turned on, even if I turn off blackberry 8700 and then get a lock on the navman when i turn on the blackberry the satelite lock is lost!

    Its a real pain

    Thanks for help, any more suggestions? (other than buy a tom tom :) )

    cheers

    P.S it woked fine with my previous nokia phone on (incl when connected to bluetooth car kit)
