Question about Garmin StreetPilot i5 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Gps - street pilot i5 garmin

Why does my garmin turn off for no reason while I'm driving? Does not seem to be the cable that is plugged into the cig. lighter. Also, takes a long time to find satellites. Would an upgrade (at a cost of $70.) be of benefit to increase time finding satellites?

    I am habing the same problem. I thought the cable might be bad but finally realized that the socket you plug the cable into on the Garmin itself is loose. I do not know if that is why it has started taking forever to give directions as well.

Try this first-if the unit has batteries installed, remove them so unit runs on power cord only

Seems to be dead .wont turn on when plugged into the cigarette lighter Garmin street pilot c 510


Hello,

Before writing the unit off as dead I would try obtaining a new 12v power cable and maybe try your cable in someone else vehicle, often the 12v power in your car can short not providing power to the GPS.

Hope this helps!

Frozen screen on ''aquiring satelite''


Try resetting the I5. Hold the left button, the wheel button and the power button down at the same time. Keep holding until the screen say that " Do you really want to erase all user data?" Select Yes and then restart the I5.

Garmin street pilot c340 battery appeared low, used USB cable to hook up pilot with my computer but device doesn't appear to turn on, computer cannot locate device on Drivers, can I rechare steet pilot...


I followed the instructions of the Online manual for the Garmin Street Pilot c-340, I removed the faceplate of the Street Pilot and then using my thumb pressed down on the reset button. I then pressed the power on button on the side of the device- the screen lit up, I then plugged one end of the USB cable into my computer and the other end into the device. The information on the screen of the device indicated the Lithium Battery was charging properly.

I had an i5 that lost voice. I fixed it by just replacing the speaker. Take it apart and measure the resistance on the speaker. If it is open or not 8 ohms, then you can use this speaker.

Garmin Street Pilot i5 Stopped working all of a sudden


Resetting Your StreetPilot
If your StreetPilot freezes (stops responding to button presses), try turning it off and then on again. If this does not help, remove the batteries and then reinsert them. Disconnect from external power, if necessary.
Clearing all User Data
If resetting does not fix your problem, you may need to clear all user data from your StreetPilot.
• IMPORTANT: zf you clear all user data, you will delete all saved locations from My Favorites I and all settings in your StreetPilot. Be sure you want to clear all user data before proceeding.
To clear all user data, press and hold down all buttons in the following order: ciJ, Wheel, Power.
Continue holding down all buttons until you see a prompt, “Do you really want to erase all user data?”
Select
Yes.
