I have a Garmin Street Pilot 2720. When I tried to update it, it doesn't seem to make contact with the web site.  I get error message, "does not connect".  Tried several times.  Please help.

    I've recently purchased a City Navigator NT Europe 2009 map update for my Garmin Street Pilot 2720. I'm able to load the software onto my PC (Dell with Windows XP), but when I try to download the maps to my GPS unit my PC crashes. It does this even when I unplug the USB cable and try to download (I tried this because I though it could be a problem with the lead). Can anyone help?

The usb port on a 2720 is not fixed to the main board. If the case has been opened some of the contacts on the main board or the usb port on the back of the unit may have been depressed (or they could be dirty) and there is no circuit being made. Check if the contacts are clean and lift both sets up slightly with the edge of a credit card.

When you plug in the USB cable, if your System, Hardware, Device Manager lists "GARMIN Devices", then the problem has to be in your network connection or Garmin WebUpdater. If your Device Manager doesn't list "GARMIN Devices" then the problem is in the computer, USB cable, or 2720.

I have three 2720s right now with bad USB ports. I'm going to try replacing the USB driver chip in each unit, but now I'm just guessing. Hope this helps. Tom

Hello,

Log into your account at www.garmin.com by using the myGarmin link.
With the unit connected to the computer go to the myDashboard link.
Your Street Pilot 2720 should show up on the dashboard.
From there you should be able to apply the update.
You may also want to contact Garmin support for assistance.

I have a garmin street pilot c530 after i power it up and agree to the disclaimer the screen reads as follows no deailed maps found that support routing street pilot cannot be used without them the unit...


I just purchased my c530 a couple of days ago and had been loving it. I had added some custom POI's to my sd card using POI loader version 2.4.0 and that had worked fine. Then the other day I tried to load some new custom POI's, but POI loader got hung up and froze. After disconnecting the c530, I restarted it. After it started, a screen came up that said "No detailed maps found that support routing. The Streetpilot cannot be used without them." I contacted garmin, here is the site for contact info since I am unsure where you are. http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontactand the tech support at Garmin. They said that somehow the files on my c530 must have gotten corrupted. The person I talked to at Garmin was very friendly and walked me through several things trying to get my unit to work. He was very apologetic and said that this should not have happened. He told me I would have to return it and get a replacement. Sorry Hope this helped.

Hello macdon,

Maybe this will help you some. I have found you the complete manual which covers most of the models of the Garmin Nuvi. It is the full manual from start to finish with complete operating procedures as well as schematics, operation instructions complete with pictures, and trouble shooting section and even other contact numbers to deal direct with Garmin, if your model is not covered in this manual.


Here is the link for you:

I also took the liberty to put my link at the bottom of this page that directs you to my personal page for all my areas of expertize, such as Automotive, Appliance, Electronics. Feel free to check it out anytime and save my link for future problem. Thanks So, Much Mike.

Garmin street pilot c330 goes on and then goes off


Try to charge the unit for 4 hrs by using a wall adapter and then try power on it again and if still the same after you full charge the unit try to contact the manufacturer check if there is a latest firmware update for the unit.

The screens are not interchangeable. The 2610 screen is 3.3x1.7" and is 305x160 resolution. The 2720 is the exact same size but 454x240 resolution.

Repair Garmin street pilot 2720


i did 2 things, one of which solved the problem. i saw that lots of people were trying to fix this by addressing the cable and plug, but this was not fixing the issue. i began to clean the connectors (with fine sandpaper) but they looked ok anyway, and also the restart issue was not happening when the gps was in motion - it was also happening when everything was still, so the cable could not be the problem. the second thing i did was, i went to garmin.com and did a software update (not the maps) I just went here http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=931 and this thing did everything automatically. I just got back from a short 30 min trip and the unit did not reset itself anymore. I have to assume the problem was in the software. go to garmin.com and use the WebUpdater to update firmware and stuff on your gps. Oh, one thing i can't get it to work is the voice driving directions now, i'll try to fix that too, but for now i'm happy the unit does not reset itself anymore.

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.
