Question about Garmin StreetPilot c310 GPS Receiver

3 Answers

Hi. I have a Garmin C310 and recently it has been giving me the following error "Route Waypoint Memory Full". When I try to delete some of my waypoints the device hangs and I need to reset it. I have formatted the SD card and reloaded my maps without the waypoints but they are still on the GPS and I can't seem to delete them. Is there a way to clear the GPS completely? And reset it to factory defaults? Please assist. Thanks. Grant

    Hi. Yes, this resets the unit but it still has the same problem. I need to erase the corrupted database and reload it. I need to find a way to set the unit back to factory defaults (like the day I bought it) I am unable to delete the corrupted maps and/or waypoints from the unit. Thanks. Grant.

    I somehow need to clear the memory on the device, even formatting the SD card didn't do that, when I switched it on it still had all my waypoints on - even though I didn't put them back on the SD card. Somehow all of that is resident in some internal memory that needs to be cleared. I will take it to a local dealer and see what they suggest. Thanks for your assistance. Regards. Grant.

    Hi. I tried re-loading the firmware (even though I already had version 6.10 loaded) which loaded fine but did not make any difference. All this started when I loaded European Maps for my trip to Netherlands next month - before that the GPS has worked perfectly for years. I will take it to a local dealer and see what they have to say. Thanks for your assistance. Grant.

    Thanks, but I have tried that numerous times. What I need to do is delete ALL data on the device as I think the database is corrupted. I need a way to clear all the user data and reload from scratch (as if the device was brand new). Thanks. Grant.

    Thanks, but I no longer have the GPS. I took it to a local distributer and when they couldn't fix it I traded it in for a new one. Thanks for your assistance. Grant.

You need to get into the maintenance mode by holding down or pressing on one of the corners of the screen while powering on.

According to the manual - which can be found here if you no longer have it
http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/StreetPilotc310_OwnersManual.pdf
to reset it you need to remove the SD card, pull the face off (under the Garmin logo there's a small cut, put a nail under it and gently pull the face out) and a RESET button will appear - press it then start the unit again.

    That reset button is exactly for that - to return the unit to the factory status. If it doesn't do that then the firmware is corrupted and your only thing left is to reload or upgrade it.
    Here it is

    If even this doesn't fix it then you have a hardware defect and you must decide if it's worth sending it to be repaired - most likely it will be cheaper just to buy a new one.

SOURCE: Hi. I have a Garmin

There should be a place (perhaps under your settings) that allows you to restore system settings. I'm thinking this might clear out the memory. Worth a try. I don't have your particular model, but that is how I interpret the controls on mine. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_c3e3efc5dc054ac3a06d2216254a22c4(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

Cannot Calculate the route - Garmin Nuvi 3760



My probleme:

When you want to select (established) a route (Finding Location or Planing a Trip) the device machine can not calculate route and displays the following message: "Route waypoint memory is full". The device is Garmin 3760T.

I found the solution:

1. Start the device.

2. Touch "Wiew Map or Map"

3. Touch on bottom right of screen (Speed)

4. Hold your finger on top center of screen for 5-10 seconds (the speed semicircle between Trip A and Trip B). The unit would go into "Diagnostic Page".

5. Select "Clear all user data" and confirm.

Warning: will erase all user-selected data (Home, Recently Found, Favorites, Trip Planner, ....).

Garmin will not navigate .It keeps coming up with Route waypoint full


Try resetting everything. The first step is to Start the GPS unit, while it is starting (when the screen turns on) hold your finger in the lower left corner. It will then prompt you to open in maint. mode. Select yes, and go through the menus by selecting next. When a third option is shownsuch as reset, select it. Reset everything including deleting your saved addresses, you will loose all of your saved info but it should start working again.

Nuvi 660 not working


1-Check if you have 500 waypoints, Thats the maximum.

Be sure you delete the recents search via the menu. the recent use when you did a search for a place or adress, just delete.

2- could you confirm both of you if you did not add any other maps into the units ?

3- How many MP3 you have into the GARMIN files ?

Need this to answer your question properly ?

It should not happen if you did not overload the unit 660.

Everything has a maximum who is published by the manufacturer.

Best regards

Memory full is being displayed when i try to go to a new destination and when i try to delete a favourite the unit turns off.


Garmin nuvi 610 T
memory full was being displayed on screen whilst on destination ,sometimes followed by route waypoint memory full .

I found by turning unit off , then holding finger on top left of screen ,and at the same time turning back on again the unit would go into maintenance mode.
Follow prompts on screen to reset waypoint memory.
Mine works as good as gold now,hope this helps!
