Demo screen When I power the unit on I get a demo explaining everything about the gps unit. I can't exit the semo. I tried to reset it, but nothing happens. I wonder if something might be wrong with the cradle?

Pushing button across,nothing happens

Try resetting the unit by pressing the reset button or on the newer 205's , turn off the power button then turn back on but hold the button for about 15 seconds till it reboots again. This should reset your unit. You should go to the Garmin site and update your unit. I will attach a link to the Garmin site. It will explain the update process and you can also find a copy of the owners manual if needed.

My navigon 2100 doesnt work after the update. help

I own a navigon 2100 as well. Very nice device and you can install the 5100 software and the 7100 maps and points of interest. is the best resource for 2100 help.

Try this:
Hard Reset Procedure - if the PNA is on, press the Power button until the unit goes off. Press again and hold the button down - the screen will come on and after a few seconds go off again. Press the Power button again and the screen will come back. If you get the opening "music", you know the Hard reset was successful.

If you leave the memory card out and keep the unit powered on, you will after a few 10's of seconds go into the Demo mode. When you reinsert the SD card a soft reset will occur (equivalent to pressing the recessed button on the left hand side) and the unit will initialize into whatever the SD card tells it to (see below).

Sometimes these will go into demo mode for no apparent reason. You can access the diagnostics screen by holding the map/music button while powering up. Be careful which buttons you press in this mode - select only the on-screen buttons, not the hard-buttons as they adjust brightness and contrast. Select the correct operating mode and power the unit off, then on.

My Garmin StreetPilot 2730 won't hold its settings.

Do a hard reset.

Turn the unit off, then hold down the menu and map buttons, simultaneously, then turn the unit back on and continue to hold down the buttons down for at least five more seconds, then the unit will power up. At that point it's like the unit is being used for the first time and you will have to reset everything. You will lose your XM presets, but the MP3's were still there.

Also after if this does not work, plug in your garmin and mount it, mac or pc whatever, then go in your garmin file erase all maps should be gmapsupp.img or gmapprom.img. Reload your maps from mapinstall.

Tomtom One screen problem

Reset the unit by pushing a bent paperclip or pin into the hole on the bottom marked 'reset' turn it back on, plug it in & charge it via USB overnight or as long as you can in the car, make sure the led on the top is green, tap the bottom right of the screen & check the battery symbol on the unit says charging underneath.

If this doesn't help.
contact them about the problem...

First off you may want to check what kind of SD card is in the slot. it's underneath the rubber. I haven't worked with the 2000's all that much so I'm not certain if your concern could be fixed by changing a setting in the settings menu of your 2000. Look for the word Demo everywhere!
