I cannot get the CD to go into the unit. It has like two pins that when you look into the slot you can see them, they seem to keep it from entering. It has been that way since I bought it.I need some help please!
Is there a cd already in it? Try hitting the eject button(it couldn't hurt!).If you bought it 'New',take it back to the store where you purchased it fromand relate your tale of woe,If it's a reputable dealer they'll probably give you an exchange(try to get a differant brand the tuners on the 303's kinda suck). If you bought it used,..well now you know why the other guy got himself a new one! Sorry! Hope this helped!

You are right, there is no hole. Try and eject by right clicking and choosing eject from the my computer location. If that does not work, your best bet is to dissasemble the thing.
Another thing you could try is going into the bios setup and holding the eject button from there.
Hope this helps!
First, I commend you for taking the initiative and tackling this yourself. Every device that loads through a slot has a device that prevents a disk from being loaded when there is already a disk loaded. This is the device (the two pins) that you are describing. What you need to do is disassemble the unit again and while reassemling check at each step to make sure the pins are out of the way (usually down).
The pins are usually connected to the loading mechanism itself by gears, so it may be necessary to manually turn a gear or belt (very gently!) to get the mechanism to a position to accept a disk. Most likely this won't work by itself, but it might. If it doesn't, then separate the pin mechanism from the loading mechanism, get the loading mechanism into a position to accept a disk. That is, not in the position where the disk is being "read" by the machine, and put the two mechanisms back together, of course with the pins out of the way, and try it out. It may take a time or two to get the gears in just the right position to work right, but you seem to have the ability.
I hope this helps. If not, please post what happens, and i'll do what ever else I can to help.
Same problem I had. After resetting unit and checking CF on another unit, Raymarine tech. said, the reader is not working. All pins seems to be OK on first look. I opened unit by removing several screws in front, gasket and the whole chassis from the case. Simple repositioning of pushed down pins from inside into the Compact Flash corrected contact problem of reader. Since then, I never removed CF. It seemed, after several reinsertions of CF, I pushed down two pins in CF slot.
Step 1. Turn your Nuvi unit off, remove any SD cards from the SD
card slot and make sure that the unit is not plugged into any computer. Step 2. Place a fingertip on the upper left hand corner of the touch
screen and keep it there while turning the unit on, a prompt should read
" Do you really want to start in maintenance mode?" Step 3. Select the yes button. Step 4. Enter your PIN if enabled. Step 5. Main Maintenance Mode screen should have 4 selections:
Clear User data
Clear Waypoints Step 6. After some selections the unit should reboot and you check
to verify unit after rebooting.
If you have Two cd/dvd drives make sure one is set to master and one to slave to do this on the back of the dvd drives is what looks like a piece of plastic there will be two rows of 4 pins for master the plastic piece should on the right hand side next to the long slot for slave move it one pin away from the long slot keep me posted please
The faceplate may have a bent pin, or is not fully clicking into place.
Before getting all worked up, try pressing the release button to remove the face plate and carefully inspecting the areas where they click into the main unit, small pieces of debris may be stuck in the clips, if this is not the case, carefully re-insert the face plate, making sure to have aligned the guides before pressing the face plate back into place. You should hear a nice confirming click when the face plate is in place.
Bent pin or contact, can easily be spotted by grabbing a magnifying glass and looking at the allignment of each pin, take extra care when straightening the pin if this is the case.
**Tip** Most solutions can come from closer inspection ... ie: with a magnifying glass.
