Re: POIs for Street Pilot 2610
Sometimes going to Garmin's web site can help answer questions like this. Garmin has discontinued the StreetPilot 2610, which means it has not been produced for some time. This is from the manual of the 2610/2650:
CD-ROM: Accepts downloadable map detail from
Garmin PC-based MapSource® City
Navigator™ DVD (included), which
provides street-level detail, addresses,
listings of nearest restaurants, hotels,
ATMs and more. Note: Requires
CompactFlash® card (128 MB CF card included)2

Try to charge the unit for 4 hrs by using a wall adapter and then try power on it again and if still the same after you full charge the unit try to contact the manufacturer check if there is a latest firmware update for the unit.
There are two type of maps in the unit. There is the basemap which shows the states and major highway and roads and then there is the actual Mapsource maps which shows the streets. If you go to Mapinfo and it doesn't show anything, then Mapsource maps are missing.
With the 2610 you can use a card reader for the Compact Flash Memory card to load the maps. This is much faster since the card reader is USB 2.0 while the Garmin USB is 1.1 Under device look for the drive letter which correspond to the Campact Flash card.
Push the power button to turn it on then count to 5 then hit enter. Then count to 5 again then hit enter. Once there hit the power button with a real quick press. The power button is also the screen brightness button. Someone may have turned it all the way down. OR the back light could have gone out.
