Question about Garmin StreetPilot 2730 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My Garmin StreetPilot 2730 won't hold its settings.

My garmin won't hold its settings. When I turn it off I have to set all of the features.
I have a Garmin StreetPilot 2730

My problem came when I upload new maps to my GPS.
I didn't know that there was a "bug" with the program (MapSource) that, when you activate a map in DEMO MODE, every other map will be in demo mode when sending them back to the GPS.

That is what I did. I had a message asking me if I really want to sent map in Demo Mode and I answer Yes (cause I know that the map I had was registered)

Since that, every time I open my GPS, I have to enter my setting again (language, timezone, and every setting)
But the GPS keeps my Favorite POI and my Home and my destination.

Anyone can please help me, I worked more than 40 hours to solved that but nothing worked....

Thanks

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.

7200 won't hold full North America upgrades. Can memory be increased?


Try this: Maximize your GPS Memory Your Garmin StreetPilot 7200 has limited storage space for waypoints, routes, and tracks. Once you reach that limit, your GPS can't hold any more data. Smart ExpertGPS users have figured out how to eke out every last bit of memory space on their Garmin GPS receivers. Before each outdoor adventure or visit to a project site, they use ExpertGPS to back up the contents of their GPS, and then clear the GPS data memory. They can then download as much data as possible onto their GPS (leaving some room for GPS data collection out in the field). When they get back, they use ExpertGPS to upload all of their Garmin waypoints, routes, and tracks onto their computer and save it. Once they've backed up the new data from their GPS, they can clear the memory again, keeping their GPS ready for their next trip.

System missing


Well, for the 2730 which is basically the same, you turn off the unit, hold down the FIND key and turn it on. Hold for about 5 seconds and release. It should reset the unit.

Garmin GPS Street Pilot 2820


I believe there is a battery backup for the memory & it may have run down. I don't know if it's a consumer or factory fix. Consult the owner's manual. If you don't have the manual, copy & paste the URL I've provided to your browser & that will take you to the 2820 manuals page. The quick reference & owner's manual are available free as downloads. Good Luck.

Resetting Your StreetPilot
If your StreetPilot freezes (stops responding to button presses), try turning it off and then on again. If this does not help, remove the batteries and then reinsert them. Disconnect from external power, if necessary.
Clearing all User Data
If resetting does not fix your problem, you may need to clear all user data from your StreetPilot.
• IMPORTANT: zf you clear all user data, you will delete all saved locations from My Favorites I and all settings in your StreetPilot. Be sure you want to clear all user data before proceeding.
To clear all user data, press and hold down all buttons in the following order: ciJ, Wheel, Power.
Continue holding down all buttons until you see a prompt, “Do you really want to erase all user data?”
Select
Yes.

Garmin 2730 OFF and ON


Had a similar problem about a year ago., and discovered that the jack on the power cord had split at the seam and the contacts were not touching the unit consistently. A little bit of super glue to glue the halves of the plug together solved the problem.

Try cleaning the end of the antenna with alcohol and a qtip. Also the unit itself. Are you able to hook up usb no problem? If so it is the antenna. It is either dirty or broken.
