This will clear ALL user data.

Hold down all buttons in the following order. [Left arrow] <==, WHEEL, POWER. Continue holding down all buttons untill you see a prompt, "Do you really want to erase all user data?" Select "Yes"

Bought a garmin second hand already registered so I can't download from Garmin site How do I get maps for America


You need to either get the previous owner to remove the satnav from their site or give you the log in details. To remove it from the previous owner's site;
  • They need to log in to myGarmin
  • Click on the "myProducts" tab at the top of the screen
  • The name of the satnav (i.e. nuvi 255W) will be shown here and under it in blue writing the word "Details"
  • Click on "Details"
  • On the next screen click on "Delete Registration"
Once it's deleted you should be able to register it under your own name. If you don't know the previous owner or can't contact them I'm afraid it won't be possible to update it.

I have the Garmin i2 that my husband bought me. It was working fine for him but for some reason for me it keeps saying 'searching for satellite'. What can I do to fix this?


are you trying to use it on battery power or connected to the charger...if its on battery power, make sure it has good batteries, then take it outside in clear view of the open sky and turn it on to aquire (lock on) to the satellites.



i fix these and many other gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.



let me know if you need more help or info

I just picked up a Garmin StreetPilot 2610/2650 at a yard sale and was wondering if I need to change the previous address on the disc(does it even have an address?) that is provided in the unit for it to...


You don't say what problem you are having, and I don't know what you mean by the disc.

The Garmin knows where you are, and for navigation, you don't need to tell it where you live.

You may want to reset the location for "Home" in your favorites.

Some Garmins have a security feature that requires you to enter a password, or be at a specific location, before they can be used. If this feature is enabled, and you don't have the required information, there is no easy way to override it except by sending it back to Garmin.

GARMIN LOCK


Hello!

Place your thumb nail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the bezel.

Gently pull off the faceplate.

Press the reset button.

If it still asks for a code and you don't have it, it should ask you to drive to a secret location to unlock the device. If you don't know the location, the only other option you have is to send the unit to Garmin to be unlocked. You can also try to call Garmin with the serial number and see if they can do something less annoying to unlock it.

How to reset the Garmin streetpilot III deluxe


DO NOT DO THE FOLLOWING unless you know why you are doing it. If you press and hold ROUTE when the unit is powered up, you do a master reset. This will clear all data and user variables. Unlike previous Garmin GPS receivers, this will NOT clear the temp compensation curves and non user data.


If the MENU key is pressed and held when the unit is turned ON, an undocumented test screen is activated which incidentally measures battery voltage, temperature and a few other things. Pressing QUIT (several times) from the test screen gives you a set of display test screens.

My husband had the same problem with his i2 Street Pilot.
He went to the Garmin web site and downloaded the latest
updated software version. You can then chose the language options, too.

Registration code


You will have to buy a regular copy of Mapsource NT (do not buy the update version). The regular copy will come with a serial number and then you will have to register with www.garmin.com to get the unlock code. Also you will need the unit serial number on your i3, (it can be found by removing the battery cover).
