Question about GPS Devices
My Garmin StreetPilot 7200 will not load maps. I bought the unit in June 2006 and it worked without any problems until this problem arose. When I turn the unit on, when it starts to load the map, it shuts down. I have tried to install the Map Update 2008 from my PC; it allows me to do so, and after the update, it shuts down. I contacted Garmin and a technical advisor suggested I go to the Garmin site and attempt the update. I did and got the same results. I am trying to avoid having to send it back to Garmin who initially charges $300, in addition to shipping and insurance charges. I paid $1100 for the unit. I now feel that I have not gotten my moneys' worth. I would appreciate some feed back to my problem
I had the same problem on my StreetPilot 7200 after many edits of many routes. Suspect a scratchpad memory heap getting used up or fragmented had to hold the power button in for 15 seconds or until a message that says press yes to clear all data appears then quickly press yes before unit shuts down
This corrected the problem until the next time the heap gets fragmented but loss of all waypoints is the downside
