Garmin Streetpilot 2620 electrical short

I have a Streetpilot 2620. I called Garmin and they want $275 to fix it. I took it to a friend that fixes televisions. He looked at it and said there was a short somewhere near the off/on switch which was causing the unit to not turn on. He said he would need a schematic of the circuit board to fix it Should I toss it and by a new one or is it fixable?

Is there any updated map for streetpilot 2620 since 2008?

Yes. There is one more mapset and then there will be no more for us using the StreetPilot 2620. You are looking for the disc set North American Navigator 2009. Make sure you do not purchase the NT version. I found the item on EBAY for $81and purchased it and it worked just fine. The 2009 is the last compatible map set that Garmin released for the 2620. Be certain that what you purchase includes that unlock key otherwise you will spend another $75 on that at the Garmin Unlock Site.

Here is the link that is good for a few more days, however, may relist it. The seller is yumelectronics and the search term is 2009 City Navigator.

Here is the search for EBAY:

Here is the item on Garmin's site:

Listed as:
City Navigator® North America This product has been discontinued but is still available for purchase.

It is $99.99.

Good luck, and let me know if you have any other questions.

Where can I get a new 2.2 GB magicstor hard drive

There are many different compatible CF cards for the removable CF version of the 2620 that will work. A search of "Garmin 2620 CF" will yield what you are looking for for around $15.

There is no reset button. Every time you turn off your Garmin and turn it back on it reloads everything fresh. What is likely the cause of what you are experiencing is a failed Cornice microdrive. It is near impossible to fix with the parts available today (May 2010) and it is more time management and cost effective simply to purchase a working 2610 from a third party site, or to purchase a new unit from the store that is still supported. In addition to the parts issue Garmin discontinued Map support for the 2620 (and 2610) in 2009.

In February I posted that I will replace the cornice drive on my 2620 because I had this problem 019d1f6.jpg Well I did that, but could not fix the problem. Garmin is asking $275 to replace my unit, I did not wanted to pay them that much. So I bought a 2610 at eBay for a $100 and don't have to worry about hard drives any longer.
To get this screen on a GPS push "menu+find" and then turn on unit. It will show this diagnostic screen.
