Question about Garmin StreetPilot 2620 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

As I type this at 8:11 AM on Jan 13, my 2620 says it's 5:45 AM on Jan 27, about 2 weeks in the future. How can this be reset?

I've done resets, run the diagnostic routine, everything seems normal. But of course it can't reconcile satellites with wrong date. Time for the dumpster?

Probably not. Time to read the manual to learn how to set the time. You may let it synchronize with the GPS signals, or set the Time manually.

Just in case you are new to Sat-navs; are you trying for satellites out of doors and away from tall buildings? Turn it off, then on again as says this procedure:
1. Go outdoors to an open area with a clear view of the sky. Stay away from tall buildings and trees.
2. Flip up the Garmin GPS antenna (on the back of the device) so that it's parallel to the ground.
3. Press and hold the "Power" button on top of your Garmin GPS device to turn the unit on. If your unit is trying to acquire satellite signal for the first time, it may take 3 to 5 minutes for the connection

NOTE: Make sure you have a clear view of thre sky (not indoors or outside but near a large building.
Several factors affect the speed at which your Garmin GPS device acquires satellite. The more frequently you use your GPS, the less time it takes for it to gather the data it needs to acquire satellite signals. Using your GPS indoors, traveling more than 500 miles without the GPS tracking your travel, and the first GPS use after a software update are all factors that can increase the time the unit needs to locate satellite signals.

Another thing people can miss/forget, is the time/date set correctly? Also, if it hasn't been used for a while it can "forget" where they are, and so takes longer to re-acquire them. For this, I suggtes check in the Nuvi 310 OwnersManual (pdf format).

Other owners experimented the same problem about acquiring satellite signal even when it's a clear sunny day. After 30 mintues, it was still searching...

The unit appeared to have "stuck" in this acquiring mode. The following worked for they:
1. open the GPS antenna
2. press the bottom left screen while holding the power button to turn the unit on
3. enter maintenace mode
4. select diagnostics
5. clear error report, do NOT clear any user data
6. restart unit the usual way

In oter cases (GPS 350) was able to acquire satellite signal in less than 1 minute after the above steps were taken.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My Edge 305s GPS is not working. Everything else

Edge 205 or 305 often crash, then impossible to power on again.

Here is the way to reset the Garmin edge :

Soft reset : hold mode and lap/reset buttons for 10 seconds
Hard reset : device should be powered down, hold start and mode buttons for 3 seconds then pulse press the lap/reset button.

After soft reset, you need to hold start button for up to 10 secs before it starts.

After hard reset, you will loose all your data, including profiles

Hard reset is not very easy, so follow carefully instructions above.

Now simple advice, did you check in your parameters that the GPS transceiver is turned on ?
There is a mode with GPS off, don't ask why ...
Refer to your manual to find the menu.

SOURCE: cant locate satellites on my

Try updating the operating system software.

  • Download and install, to your computer, the latest version of WEBUPDATER from
  • Connect your satnav to your computer and run the webupdater program.
  • It will find any updates to the satnav operating system. Select all and install them.
  • When the updates are installed webupdater will find optional updates. You don't need to install these unless you want to.
When they are downloaded safely disconnect your satnav and re-start it. This may solve your problem.

I"ve created a password on

You can salvage your old user account by logging on as the "Administrator" user. Once you're logged in as the admin, you can reset your old user password. The Administrator user (by default) is similar to a "superuser" and has the highest access level to reset any user password.
If you don't know what your Administrator password is, you can reset that by rebooting into Safe Mode.

The best option here is to reset your account password. You can do this using either 1 of the 2 methods suggested by Microsoft Knowledge Base article #321305. In my opinion, the second method described on this page is most likely the easiest route:
Reboot Windows in Safe Mode.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK: control userpasswords2
Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password.
Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
Good luck!
Side note: To access Safe Mode, Click Start -> Shutdown (or Turn Off), and choose 'Restart'. Once the computer restarts, press F8 repeatedly on the keyboard until a Boot Menu appear (this *must* be done before the Windows boot screen appears). Finally, choose to boot Windows in Safe Mode and press Enter on the keyboard.

Try a new LAN cable between devices. Hard reboot bother router and modem.
The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset

If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can set-up form scratch.

Same Problem Again - Mega Raid.... Unknown Error


The title of your post suggests that you have "Maga RAID" errors. Maga RAID messages would be in line with issues on the LSI PERC sub-system.

However, the extract posted in your suggests network problems.

Any number of physical to driver and configuration issues can result in network problems.

Try the basic checks;
1. Change or try a known patch cable
2. Run "ping" test to a known good system connected to same network switch or direct connect with a "cross-over" cable and check for dropped connections.
3. Is the NIC and switch set to Auto-Negotiation or static at 10, 100 or 1000Mbps speed
4. Can you try another switch
5. Check and load correct or latest manufacture's drivers
