Re: registration code

You will have to buy a regular copy of Mapsource NT (do not buy the update version). The regular copy will come with a serial number and then you will have to register with to get the unlock code. Also you will need the unit serial number on your i3, (it can be found by removing the battery cover).

How do I update the maps on my garmin i3 streetpilot? is there a free download?

Garmin allows you one free update for your maps as long as you do it within 60 days of your day of purchase. You have to download it with your computer and then use the USB cable that should have come with your receiver to transfer the update to your GPS. After the initial free update the charge is $100.00 per year or $200.00 for lifetime updates.

My Garmin was purchased in 2006 and after receiving update DVD. I can't obtain unlock code without paying 88$

That is probably the case. In most scenarios you have to purchase another lock to add or upgrade maps.

You could start playing with data and see if it meets your needs.

Error message

Install the Garmin City Navigator Cd to your pc and then connect ur garmin to ur pc with the USB cable.
You might have to unlock the maps with information provided with ur garmin like ur unit ID and ur unlock code.
Another possiblity is that ur memory card is gotten corrupted so try installing it on a different micro sd card.
Let us know if u have any luck.

Did you try to upgrade your Garmin with 2008 maps? If you have the map registration code then you will have to go to garmin's website and get an unlock code. You will need the registration code and also the unit serial number before you can get a new unlock code. The unlock code is base upon your unit serial number and will only work with that unit.

Update my garmin streetpilot i3

GARMIN offers a free download called "WebUpdater" for these products. Once you have the GARMIN USB driver for this unit installed on your computer (also avail. at, you can run the WebUpdater, and it will update all known updates to the unit.

Installing "new" maps...
If you don't mean "updated" maps, then you would have to use another GARMIN mapping product like MapSource, then load the new maps into the unit via an SD FLASH card.
