Question about Garmin StreetPilot i3 GPS Receiver
Motorola Flash Mode Bootloader Version BOOT_C_03.08.00R.MPAP Please connect the USB CABLE I got this message in the morning after charging it over night. It's stuck here.
Hmm - that kind of message is most likely the basic boot loader in the unit getting activated, this would normally be used in manufacturing to get the 'product firmware' (the programme that makes the product do what it does) into the unit on the production line.
For this to be appearing in customer hands I'd suggest that the product firmware has gotten corrupted. Being unable to run the product firmware the unit is entering it's bootloader and expecting new firmware to be put into it.
Unless your product manufacturer's support webpages have firmware downloadable for the product, along with details of how to do it, then i'd suggest that your unit probably needs the attention of an approved service centre or manufacturer service department.
If the product is still under warranty then the warranty may cover fixing this fault - check terms and conditions and/or contact the manufacturer or the store you bought it from - you may get it fixed free or replaced under warranty by the manufacturer or the retailer.
If it is out of warranty then it may likely cost something to get your product repaired, but it's probably worth making enquiries - a repair may be worthwhile but you'd need to find out cost. It may be worth contacting the manufacturer and asking if this is a known common issue with this product - if it is then they may have put a mitigation plan in place to support users that experience it and if so this may be available even if the unit is out of warranty.
Hope this helps y'all to understand the message you're seeing on the display. Would be interested to hear if you get it sorted.

I think you should take back to the store and see what they can do

I brought it to the store this morning and the technician there re-flashed the system. Since no hardware damage, they did not charge me. Hope this helps. Last time I got it replaced. If you are told you no way to figure it out but replacement, it should be the technician's incapability.

Bola-Bola is spot on, you are SOL when you see this message. When Charging over night make sure you have a good connection in the USB port or else this will happen again.
