Re: Map update gone bad

My streetpilot 2620 map upgrade did not override the exisitn map it just loaded the new one. Now I have 2 maps that can be enabled or disabled. What happened?

Anyone know how I can just get the new 2009 CN NT map to load?

Everything went dead within 2 hours. The only thing the unit will do is display the following message. - - - - No detailed maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot be used without them. - - - - -

I would check your map to see if it has a check mark in it.....

Tools.... Settings....Maps..... on bottom of screen Map Info.....make sure a check is in City Navigator North American NT

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.

I am updating my nuvi 200 with map update 2009 of city navigator north america nt. Canada is not loading to my gps through my computer. Looking for a solution.

when updating from the city nav update disc, it will only update the maps currently on the unit. Since Canada isnt included, it will not add it on. What you need is the Pre-programed City navigator chip for Canada. Normally retails around $59.99

Hello parteeboy24,

The on board memory in your Nuvi 200 may not have enough free space to hold the map. You may be able to free up some space by deleting maps or language packs that you don't use. (Be careful to back up any files you are going to delete.) Or you can add an optional SD memory card to the unit to increase the storage capacity on the GPS.

Best Regards,

Replacing maps

You cant... Garmin sucks at support for doing stuff like this. They want you to buy a new one instead, only to find out its obsolete in a few years and then your new one is not supported in lets say in the year 2010.
That is why the Flash model 2010 and 2050 were more popular. Gave users more options and less moving parts for there unit to break.

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

Map data availability

"I tried to load the new 2008 City Navigator but the update was interrupted."

You deleted your previous maps, therefore there are no maps on the unit. Try reloading the maps again and this time let it continue all the way to the end. It will take a couple of hours depending on loading all maps or only certain states.

In February I posted that I will replace the cornice drive on my 2620 because I had this problem 019d1f6.jpg Well I did that, but could not fix the problem. Garmin is asking $275 to replace my unit, I did not wanted to pay them that much. So I bought a 2610 at eBay for a $100 and don't have to worry about hard drives any longer.
To get this screen on a GPS push "menu+find" and then turn on unit. It will show this diagnostic screen.
