Garmin Streetpilot 2620 Goes not go to maps

For some reason whenever I turn the unit on the main screen that says streetpilot comes on then the saftey warning not to use it while driving then when you click ok it goes back to streetpilot 2620 and keeps making the same circle. Is there any way to reset the unit. I know by holding down certain buttons while turning the unit on you get different screens is there any way of making it read and display maps again

I did update to the 4.8, and worked for about 10 minutes, and then went back to the old routine of booting over and over, and will not except map. I think I might sent it back to garmin in a few days after I get to tired with it.

Is there any updated map for streetpilot 2620 since 2008?

Yes. There is one more mapset and then there will be no more for us using the StreetPilot 2620. You are looking for the disc set North American Navigator 2009. Make sure you do not purchase the NT version. I found the item on EBAY for $81and purchased it and it worked just fine. The 2009 is the last compatible map set that Garmin released for the 2620. Be certain that what you purchase includes that unlock key otherwise you will spend another $75 on that at the Garmin Unlock Site.

Here is the link that is good for a few more days, however, may relist it. The seller is yumelectronics and the search term is 2009 City Navigator.

Here is the search for EBAY:

Here is the item on Garmin's site:

Listed as:
City Navigator® North America This product has been discontinued but is still available for purchase.

It is $99.99.

Good luck, and let me know if you have any other questions.

Start-up loop

Hold down PAGE, MENU, and FIND then turn unit on to perform a Master Reset. That might do the trick. There are some other undocumented features you might be interested in available here: That site also has links to manuals, if you need them.

Won't boot up

I have a same problem, and I think I can fix it, may be not. Any how, I bought a cornice drive on eBay and as soon I will get it. I will load my maps on to it with usb connector after that I take it a part and remove it from its case. Then I will take my Garmin Streetpilot 2620 apart remove the old cornice drive and install the new drive. I suspect it will work like a charm. To check your GPS at boot push and hold "menu-find" buttons simultaneously and you will get a screen to verify your problematic cornice drive.59c5167.jpg

There is no reset button. Every time you turn off your Garmin and turn it back on it reloads everything fresh. What is likely the cause of what you are experiencing is a failed Cornice microdrive. It is near impossible to fix with the parts available today (May 2010) and it is more time management and cost effective simply to purchase a working 2610 from a third party site, or to purchase a new unit from the store that is still supported. In addition to the parts issue Garmin discontinued Map support for the 2620 (and 2610) in 2009.

Most likely your hard drive is gone bad. Push "menu+find" buttons then turn on, you will get diagnostic screen, it will show if your cornice drive is bad. It will say"Cornice Dive removed"4f3efc6.jpg
