My Guide 3000 GPS System

I own a My Guide 3000 GPS System. It was given to me as a Christmas present in 2007. One day I was playing a game on it, I don't remember which game it was, and I turned it off without exiting out of the game. Then when I turned it back on, the main menu did not appear. Instead, it went straight to the menu that has the options Multimedia and Settings. Now every time I turn it on it goes straight to that menu. I have tried a hard reset. I've tried taking the SM Card out of it. I've tried pushing the Main Menu button. I've tried touching all four corners, but none of them will get you back to the main menu. I've gone to Music, Pictures, and Movies, all of them, and pushed the X which is supposed to take you back to the main menu, but instead it took me back to the same menu with Multimedia and Settings. Everything I've tried has not worked. The navigation part consisting of the Cockpit and Maps area worked just fine until I started playing that game. What do I need to do to fix it in order for it to go back to the Main Menu?

    I have the same problem where it only shows the multimedia and settings menu. I even just tried messing around with try to push and hold different buttons while turning it on. The furthest I got was being able to attempt to download from the SD until it gave me an error.

It's the same menu but the pna thinks the sd isn't in, so it hides those buttons. u should get to sd card to your computer and look at addons.txt. that contains information about the menus, and if that looks alright(
Games = "icons/games.bmp", "", 0
Navigate = "", "\\Flash Disk\\myguide\\myguide.exe"), then u should go to windows explorer. when it boots, after u hear the noise, notice a black square appearing in the left corner, "click" and hold until u see the a menu close to that when u right click your computer's desktop(if it's windows). click new folder and keep touching the desktop for the next ten seconds, so the "main menu" won't appear. then enter the new folder and windows explorer will launch, click the address bar and erase what's there and type \ then press enter. it will go to my computer. go to flash disk (which is the internal rom) and click igo launch. that should launch the navigation software.

I was just given the Garmin 255W as a Christmas gift.Can you purchase the lifetime maps or do you have to pay for each update after the 60 day free update is over.

There are no lifetime maps for your Garmin nuvi. Garmin updates their maps over time, so there are no lifetime maps available for the device. There are free maps and you can buy maps from Garmins website.

Losess reception frequently for long periods of time. It was given to us as a Christmas present and is still under warrenty.

It is absolutely necessary to frequently update the quick GPS fix information for better functioning of the GPS. To update Quick GPS fix you need to connect the GPS to the computer. Once GPS is connected it will ask you whether you would like to install the TomTom home software. say yes to that suggestion and follow the tips on the screen. Once the installation is completed, your gps will be automatically updated wait till this process is complete. This should solve your reception problems.

Tomtom one updated maps , quarantee

You should be able to get online to Tom Tim Home, register your product and get at least one update. You are good for a year from date of purchase. Just say you purchased it now. After that updates cost money.
