 Sync Mode icon When you first plug the Navigator into the PC USB port, the Mode Selection screen appears.
After plugging into the PC, the mode selection screen only appears for about 5 seconds.
Tap the Center GREEN button on the Navigator screen when the Navigator is first connected to the PC USB port.
If you do not choose one of the three modes, the Navigator defaults to the Sync Mode connection, so you can either tap the icon, or leave it to automatically connect in Sync Mode.

Make sure you have installed ActiveSync (WindowsXP) or Windows Mobile Device Center (Windows Vista, 7 or 8)
