Jensen Radio NAV

Re-posting a prior thread which I updated but for some reason was not showing up as updated.

Jensen 7020 navigation

Took our new RV out to get our first Gas fill up and have it weighed. I programmed the Jensen Nav to direct us to the truck stop 5 miles away where the scale is located just to see how it works. I discovered a few things. First, I am having the same issue as Steve and Diane. Checking all the settings it seemed to be correct. I did see some posts in this thread about resetting the unit and adjusting the master up to 100% as possible fixs, so I will try both at the next opportunity. Also here are a few comments about the unit in general after our first use.
  • The screen text, fields, buttons are all way to small making the input of a destination field very tedious. Also, the slow response of the unit does not help much. Is there any way to adjust these?
  • Because of the items above and the position/angle of the radio in the cab, voice guidance is critical since you will not really be able to see the screen well while driving. Hopefully I can get the voice guidance working.
  • The NAV maps are over two years old on a so I will have to look at getting an updated map.
  • I will most likely use the NAV on my phone 95% of the time however for those times where cell service is not available (and there will be several), having a functioning stand alone NAV will be important.
  • Also, on the return trip the radio displayed a Memory Error. (see attached) Not sure what this is about yet but if anyone has had this happen before and has some input, please feel free to reply.

Haven't really tried mine yet. Just bought 3011 a couple of weeks ago. Not very impressed. Can't really see the display from the driver's seat. I do like that it has truck/RV settings, though, but I'm not sure I can trust it on our upcoming cross country trip. Will probably get a Garmin

NewRVer, looks like your map software is one year and 2 months old. That's not too bad. If your unit is less than 30 days old, you can get a free update.

I'm not sure that's the map date, but the iGo nav software. You can get an update for that easily. To see the map dates you need to pull the microSD card and look at the files in the app you download from iGo. Which only works on a PC, by the way.

I paid for new maps back in Sept before a big trip. It cost approx $80.

We use the Jensen quite a lot and have gotten pretty comfortable with it. So much so we decided to not buy a Garmin.

I just noticed that last night when looking at my pics again. I will probably go through the process of trying to update anyway just so I know how to do it and to get the most up to date since there is a 3Q15 version.

Naviextra's is where you get the plugin and the maps, but iGO is on the mapping software logo.

Creativepart is correct about naviextras and iGo. I read somewhere that iGo is located in Hungary and uses TomTom maps for USA and Canada, may be more.


Benagi, any luck with your maps?

I have not had an opportunity to load the updated Maps and use the NAV again as the weather has been poor. I need to go get an inspection sticker yet so that may be my next opportunity to see if there is any noticeable difference or if the memory error is still an issue.
