If it says cornice drive no found when in diagnostic mode then the Hard drive is probably toasted - a common problem. I salvaged a hard drive out of a unit with a broken screen but the new Frankenstein unit required a new unlock code. The 2610 model came with maps that can be used on a 2nd unit so I asked Garmin to give me an unlock code for my rebuilt 2620 that came from a 2610 that had been stolen form my car. Otherwise the unlock code will cost you $99.

Do you have any unlock code for your unit? Delete this code "demo" from MapSource and put unlock code for your unit and try to download to unit a small part of maps.

Is there any updated map for streetpilot 2620 since 2008?


Yes. There is one more mapset and then there will be no more for us using the StreetPilot 2620. You are looking for the disc set North American Navigator 2009. Make sure you do not purchase the NT version. I found the item on EBAY for $81and purchased it and it worked just fine. The 2009 is the last compatible map set that Garmin released for the 2620. Be certain that what you purchase includes that unlock key otherwise you will spend another $75 on that at the Garmin Unlock Site.

Here is the link that is good for a few more days, however, may relist it. The seller is yumelectronics and the search term is 2009 City Navigator.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390193775928

Here is the search for EBAY:
http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=city+navigator+2009

Here is the item on Garmin's site:
https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=8465

Listed as:
City Navigator® North America This product has been discontinued but is still available for purchase.

It is $99.99.

Good luck, and let me know if you have any other questions.

Where can I get a new 2.2 GB magicstor hard drive


There are many different compatible CF cards for the removable CF version of the 2620 that will work. A search of "Garmin 2620 CF" will yield what you are looking for for around $15.

My Garmin StreetPilot 2730 won't hold its settings.


Do a hard reset.

Turn the unit off, then hold down the menu and map buttons, simultaneously, then turn the unit back on and continue to hold down the buttons down for at least five more seconds, then the unit will power up. At that point it's like the unit is being used for the first time and you will have to reset everything. You will lose your XM presets, but the MP3's were still there.

Also after if this does not work, plug in your garmin and mount it, mac or pc whatever, then go in your garmin file erase all maps should be gmapsupp.img or gmapprom.img. Reload your maps from mapinstall.

There is gaps in the mapping in all states....a new version of software is due out soon,there has not been an update for quite some time(over 14months I have heard) There is some suggestion that you can update the operating system and then almost all the other brands of mapping will work??? I like Tom Tom myself it has some fantastic features like being able to play the route in demo mode in a fast speed to see where you are going.And putting in an alternative route,selecting streets with one key touch mode etc etc

Go to the following link to get mapinstall.

http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=3291

You will need to purchase Mapsource NT 2008 to get the latest maps. The upgrade will come with a serial number which you will use to register on garmin's website. You will also need your unit ID, it can be found on the back of your unit, when you register with Garmin. Afterward you will get your unlock code (25 characters). You will enter the unlock code in Mapsource before installing the maps onto your Garmin.

I fixed my C530 on my own. Garmin support will not give you this solution.
I attached the GPS to the computer with the usb cable. I used the file explorer in windows to view the file system on the GPS. I sorted the files by date. Then I moved the files that had a newer date than the last time the GPS worked, to an backup folder on my computer in case I need to restore the files to the GPS again. I than disconnected the GPS from the computer and restarted the GPS. The GPS works perfect now and doesn't enter the demo mode any longer.
