can you load up the sat nav software? i got a chinese clone and had to manually set the baud on the antenna (iirc 9800) before it would pick me up.

do all the other lights such as heater dials come on? - they are fed on same circuit...mind you it maybe worth waiting until night time...might be a case of the leds being dim

Are you saying the unit buttons don't light up when your headlamps are on? I'm assuming they should light red?
