Question about Garmin StreetPilot 2610 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

USB port stopped working.

After a motorcycle vacation to Corsica in oktober connected the streetpilot to my computer to get the stored tracks and routes waypoints etc.
This would not work, mapsource does not fnd the 2610, to rule out XP and / or hardware problems i connected a GPS 60 device and this is working fine over USB. THe problem must be the streetpilot 2610, anyone any idea how to solve this ? Is this perhaps a known problem ?

    I solved the problem, the USB port is a crappy half-way solution at Garimn so i found out. Its basicly the port on a small circuit board with pre-shapet (bend) copper sheetmetal contacts.

    On the main circuitboard the same sheetmetal shitty contacts, after bending them all a bit wider, closed the Streetpilot and ..... Yes, the comuter finds the GPS and data is transferred....

I had a similar problem. The USB connector broke off the circuit board. It's not difficult to repair. Remove the rear cover, remove the small circuit board and carefully re-solder the connector, reassemble.

Just returned from vacation..47 photos will not download to computer. Camera says file is empty, but sometimes I can see a few of them!


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader.Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device oran external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. Youcan copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off yourmemory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing anyprograms.

I have a Trendnet TK-209 KVM switch. My keyboard and mouse (MS wireless) that worked well for a year stopped working through the switch. they work well if connected directly to each computer.


I can confirm the same problem happened with me just now. I have TrendNet USB/KVM TK-207 and was flawlessly working with Logitech K260 Wireless Mouse and Keyboard Combo, but today on both computers all I can see is the error:

.
USB Device not recognized - The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it.

I unplugged the usb wireless adapter and connected it directly to the PC - it worked like a charm again. I have tried to connect the wireless adapter to the mouse port hoping that the keyboard USB port is causing problems, but all I got was the same error. I have tried to conect a normal USB keyboard, but again the same error I get for both - the mouse and keyboard, so it is more than obvious now that the USB ports of my KVN Switch are malfunctioning. I will try to leave it for a while if it got hot somehow as it was connected for more than 6 months working perfectly fine, but if not, I am heading to the store for support/replacement.

Battery on my garmin c510 sat nan wount hold a charge how easy is it to change


Had the same problem. Fixed with a new battery. Takes the same as a Streetpilot c530 and can be purchased anywhere on line. A 10 minute job with a soldering iron.

1. Open face plate. Unscrew 4 screws. Remove battery connector and clip.
2. Unsolder the wires to the two speakers - 4 wires.
3. Remove the sticky wrap from the old battery and place around the new one (to stop it rattling).
4. Solder back the new speaker wires.
5. Plug in battery, reassemble unit and charge Garmin off PC wih usb cable.
Done!

How to add a map to a streetpilot c330 without SD-card slot?


Hi there,

hopefully your garmin would have come with a USB cable to connect up to your computer, on most devices today this would be the same port that is used for charging the device at home.

Then if you head over to this link (Garmin website) https://my.garmin.com/maps/checkPlugin_updates.htm?
I assume you have a windows PC, here but tell me otherwise.
You'll need to install the plugin which allows garmin to communicate with you device (to find out what model you have, and the current maps stored, as well as what new maps you would require)

If you don't have the USB cable, there is the option to also enter the serial number of your device, likely to be in small print on the back of device somewhere.

Will not charge witg car charger


you'll need to use a usb cord to recharge it once the battery gets to real low. For some reason the car charger won't work. you can plug it in to the usb port on your computer or you can get a car charger that has a usb connection on the end.

Computer no longer recognizes my scanner


If you are using a multi port USB adapter that allows you to plug many devices into one USB port it may interfere with the scanner. Try uninstalling your Epson driver then download the newest one from the Epson website. http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=88368&prodoid=63070478&BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Downloads&platform=All&x=27&y=14

Install the newest driver first then plug your scanner into a single USB port on the computer instead of the multi port.

Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS cannot load map to memory card


I had this problem and the solution was to get a PCI USB card for my computer. My computer's motherboard didn't properly use USB and the Garmin GPS could never talk to the computer.

You can get a PCI USB card cheaply at nearly any good computer / electronics store, or even on Ebay. Once installed, just plug the USB cable into the socket on the PCI card and try the GPS again.

Try replacing your USB cord, or re-installing your Zen player's driver. If these doesn't work, then probably the USB port on your player is worn-out or damaged. Cleaning the the port with a contact cleaner.

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.
