Which device am I using?

Different products like map material or certain software versions can be used only with specific devices. If you want to know which device you own, please proceed as follows:

Navigation Systems

▪     On the original purchase box your device came in or in the enclosed
       user's manual guide, the device's model should be specified.

▪     In many devices the name and model of the device is specified
      in written form on an attached sticker found at the bottom side
      or at the backside of the device itself.

▪     With NAVIGON PNAs as for example PNA 6000 or NAVIGON 2100
      you will be able to find this specified there. With the NAVIGON 2100
      you must check the backside.

Mobile Phones / PDAs

▪     With PDAs or mobile phones often only the manufacturer's name
      is specified on the hardware but not the model.

▪     Most manufacturers have inserted the device's model name
      inside the device itself, usually under the battery.

▪     Switch off your device and remove the battery. Now you will find the
      device's model with labels as for example Nokia model: N95 or
      Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox N520.

▪     If you are not yet sure about the model of your device, you may
      check and try to find a match to the names displayed on our
      compatibility list or contact the device's manufacturer.


▪     We do not recommend to open the hardware case of smartphones.

▪     You can find out the model of the most smartphones by going
       to the settings in the software menu.
