    same problem, any help?

  • romesz Feb 19, 2008

    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.

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.

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.

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.

Why does my c340 keep losing satellite reception

Hello there:
please follow these instruction and this should help if not let me know and i willcontinue to get you more information for you
  1. Step 1 Calibrate the screen of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the touch screen does not seem to respond when you hit it with your finger or a stylus, you may need to calibrate it. To do this, turn the unit off and then hold down the "Power" key for approximately one minute. You will see a calibration screen come up that will recalibrate the GPS2_bing.gif unit.
  2. Step 2 Reset the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If your GPS unit is not responding or is stuck on a particular screen, it may need to be reset in order to operate. To reset, remove the face plate of the unit by gently prying it off. Locate the "Reset" button under the face plate and press down in order to restart the device.
  3. Step 3 Change the fuse of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the fuse blows on the GPS, you will need to make a replacement using an ACG/3AG 2 amp fuse. Unscrew the adapter cord at the end and remove the fuse found there. Put in the new fuse to see if this returns function to the unit.
  4. Step 4 Update the software for your Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the GPS is not providing you with correct directional information, you may need to update the software or download new maps onto the device. Connect the Garmin StreetPilot C340 with the USB cord to your PC and log on the Garmin website for available updates.

Will not let me change locations while moving how do i turn off that fuction?

This is a safety feature that comes turned on by default. While you are driving, you cannot enter new directions/information as it is unsafe to do so. The unit normally asks you if you want to override this at the time, but you can also turn it off while stopped by pressing the icon at the bottom of the screen that looks like a wrench. Then press "System" at the top middle of the unit. Where it says "Safe Mode" press the "On" key. At the next screen, press "Off." The unit will now allow you to enter information while it is in motion.
