Update i3 maps 2009
Hi there and welcome to fixya!
I have a Garmin as well. Updating your map is super easy. Just go to https://my.garmin.com/maps/updates.htm
and enter your serial number. They will then provide you with a link to download new maps and instruction on how to install them.
Hope this helps!
If you have any more questions do not hesitate to ask and have a happy holiday,

USB port on Garmin Streetpilot I2
If the USB port is loose, that means that the port has come of the circuit board. This happened to a friend of mines, his son did not look which way to orient the usb plug and used brute force.
It will need to go back to Garmin for repair unless you are or know of an excellent solderer as the conenctions are minute.
The case needs a TORX 6 screwdriver.

auto power cord (which you have)
optional ac power cable

I need a internal part for an I3
My instinct is it would be cheapest to buy a "broken screen" model off eBay and tear the mobo out of it.
Or just buy a refurb; mine was $80 with current maps (current at that time) installed.

How do I update the maps on my garmin i3
Garmin allows you one free update for your maps as long as you do it within 60 days of your day of purchase. You have to download it with your computer and then use the USB cable that should have come with your receiver to transfer the update to your GPS. After the initial free update the charge is $100.00 per year or $200.00 for lifetime updates.
