Garmin GPS III Pilot Display

I think my GPS III Pilot was transported (by me) within my breafcase where something has made a pressure to the display. Now the display has a figure in an egg form changing the intensity of the point of it. This way I don't see everything that is displayed. I sure have to replace the display. Someone can give me a way to do it?

SOURCE: Garmin GPS 152

I had the same problem so I replaced my 152 with a spare unit. It did the same thing. This led to believe it was the cable. I removed a few kinks and a bend at the unit; and it seems to be fine. Seems too simple and the bends were not that severe, but it is working (for now).

While plugged into car garmin will not display maps


It has gone into "Mass Storage Mode" because it thinks it is connected to a computer. Are you using something other than the Garmin power cord such as a cell phone charger?

HOW TO CALIBRATE GARMIN STREET PILOT 2620


I am assuming you want to calibrate the touch screen. Press MENU, click DISPLAY, Press find, press find, follow instructions on screen. You can also hold MENU and FIND at startup and a diagnostic screen will start up, pressing menu repeatedly while on this screen will give you an opportunity to calibrate the screen. If you are looking for a solution on how to do something else, please post additional information and I will do my best to assist.

Garmin GPS III Pilot to PC communication problem


If it were doing this just on the Vista machine I would say it was Vista related but since you are getting it from an xp machine as well the problem is either cable or the gps unit. You don;t say if this just started happening or ? If you can try out the cable on something else to make sure so you can eliminate it. About the only thing you can do is to make sure the port settings in the pilot are set correctly. Generally the slower the better if you are having communication problems as this makes the signal timing not as critical. Try 9600 baud to start. Make sure that the data bits are also set roght. This is the 8n1 or 7n1 thing you see. I can;t think of what the default is on the garmin but as long as both pc and garmin have speed, bits, parity, and stop but set the same they should talk.

Try to download from the unit as well as upload.Unfortunetly you can only change the speed and protocal or reset the unit. You won't be able to fix it if is a hardware thing. If you are using a USB to Serial adapter then I would say that is your problem or could be. Cheaper ones just don't work often on higher port speeds. You might want to try the gps on a pc with a actual serial port if you are using one. If it works then you should try a different brand of adapter or really slow down the speeds.

This won;t solve it unless you luck out but it should let you know where the problem is.

Garmin GPS III LCD screen problem


I have a GPSII+ that has a screen problem. Several of the x and y coordinates have failed and I think it is due to condensation in the unit due to hot day temps then cold nights. If I open it and dry out the unit for a while... the display will be better but will not return to full display. Some of the X and Y lines don't work.
