Question about Garmin 010-00358-00 GPS Receiver
I am having problems with my 2720, I thought it was the power cord so I ordered another one and it continues to power on and return to the beginning. It lets you put in the destination gives the direction stay on for 1 minute or so and then return the beginning. How do I fix this problem or wher do I send it for repair.

I did 2 things, one of which solved the problem. i saw that lots of people were trying to fix this by addressing the cable and plug, but this was not fixing the issue. i began to clean the connectors (with fine sandpaper) but they looked ok anyway, and also the restart issue was not happening when the gps was in motion - it was also happening when everything was still, so the cable could not be the problem. the second thing i did was, i went to garmin.com and did a software update (not the maps) I just went here http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=931 and this thing did everything automatically. I just got back from a short 30 min trip and the unit did not reset itself anymore. I have to assume the problem was in the software. go to garmin.com and use the WebUpdater to update firmware and stuff on your gps. Oh, one thing i can't get it to work is the voice driving directions now, i'll try to fix that too, but for now i'm happy the unit does not reset itself anymore.

Garmin has updated the software in most of their GPS units due to a new satellite being launched in 2008 which was causing problems. When GPS units got a lock on the new software, it would free the units. The first thing, when encountering a problem with the GPS unit, is to update the unit's internal software at the Garmin site. This might address the problem right away. After that, if there's still a problem, come back here and we'll see if we can help.

Thanks for the tip. I was getting ready to cut off the plug and directly solder the cable to the internal connections, but decided to try the software update first. This seems to have solved the problem. So does anybody know why this works?

The updater from Garmin fixed my re-Boot issue. also they have the voice updates also that will fix your voice error
