gary, sorry if this is "how to suck eggs" question, but are you sure the fuses are ok?

ie can you run a resistance test across them, or even knock up a quick circuit with a torch bulb 3 bits of wire and a couple of AA batteries?

battery, wire, leg of fuse.
Other leg of fuse, wire, bulb terminal 1.
bulb terminal 2, wire, back to battery

sort of thing?

...or just change them for new ones to be sure if you don´t have a mulitmeter.

3 fuses is not a major investment.

Have you tried the satnav in another car just to be 100% sure that the satnav is ok?

thanks for your help guys,I changed the fuses and still nothing so I was just about to book it into Honda and I thought Id have one last look, The end of the SatNav (that goes into the ciggy lighter) had come apart so I had a glass fuse on the floor and a black screw on end in the cubby so fitted them together and everything works The bit I dont understand is why the fag lighter didnt work last night but now it does whatever its working now so thats brightened my day:D oh heres a picture of where me and the civ are going in 3 days..........cant wait

glad its sorted :D

and now I'm just jealous! :lol:

If I'd known that was where you needed your Sat Nav to get to, I would have said nothing and then just turned up at the ferry and pretended to be you! :D

Stupid question maybe, but is this the Isle of Man? TT races next weekend? And if so: are they on live TV? I mean: some channel I can get here in the outskirts of Europe?
