I tried another power cord and that was not the problem. I did do a firmwre update and that corrected the unit. It has been working well for the past 3 weeks. You should go to the Garmin website and download the latest FIRMWARE update.

Take the GPS out of your van to an area with a clear view of the sky. Power the unit on. If the unit is working correctly, then it will acquire the satellites. You can then put the unit back in your van. You may have to reposition the unit to keep the satellite lock.

If the unit does not acquire satellites outside, then the unit is defective.

Garmin GPS 2720

Unfortunately, Fixya is not associated with Garmin. We can only answer device questions and can't speak for the company.

Unfortunately, the unit cannot be upgraded. Garmin provides both in and out of warranty repair service if the unit is having a problem. The 2720 sells for $49 on Amazon, so it probably is not worth your while to have fixed.

The 2720 is known to have issues unfortunately, it is pretty lowly rated on Amazon.

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.

Unlock Code

When updating the maps, you need to be registered with Garmin. All the numbers came with the unit. If you turn over your Garmin 2720, there will be a number flanked by "*". That is your unit ID. When you register, you must provide that ID. From the site, you can update your maps and you shouldn't need the 25digit key. It's programmed into your unit.
