Garmin does not sell replacement parts for this unit. They don't sell any parts at all so its no surprise that you don't get an answer from them.

If you need service or to purchase parts for the unit there is a service center authorized by Garmin to handle repairs in Kansas and another in the UK.

You can contact the Kansas location at 1200 East 151st street, Olathe, Kansas 66062 913 397-8200 phone and their fax number is 913 397-0836.

The manual is located on the internet at http://www.gawisp.com/perry/gpsmap295/GPSMAP295_PilotsGuide.pdf which explains the repair procedures.

I hope that this helps?

Second, Garmin no longer repairs the GPSMAP 295 units because they no longer have the parts to repair them in stock. (See screen-shot below, where I checked for you.)

This brings us to your options:

Replacement:
You may find that replacement is the more cost efficient option as opposed to having an independent facility repairing your unit.

Note: If you do elect to replace your unit with another one keep in mind that if you purchase from an online auction (eBay for example) your warranty - even if it's a new unit - is automatically VOID. (Regardless of what the seller claims or advertises.)

Repair:
Here's a link to an independent repair facility you can contact to see if repairing the unit is a viable option.

Where do i go to down load update for my gps 295. garmin said thay dont support this unit. thanks joe


Joe,

The Garmin "GPSMap 295" is at, as far as Garmin is concerned anyway, "end of life". This means Garmin will no longer support, repair, etc. this product. C'est la vie.

Garmin's older product lines lack the hardware to decompress the new "NT" (New Technology) maps that Navtek (the map company) is producing now. The NT maps are compressed so that they would fit on smaller capacity memory cards. By doing this, the maps required Garmin to include hardware (special designed circuitry) that could quickly decompress these maps "on the fly" for display. The much of Garmin's older GPSMap & StreetPilot lines predate this hardware requirement.

Our "still-functioning" GPSMap & StreetPilot GPSr will still pinpoint our location on the Earth as always - but lack the latest & greatest maps. You should review the maps that your GPSr can use and choose the one you prefer. I switched mine to display topographical maps. These show many of the road names like the City Navigator maps do, but lack important things like the POIs and routing. If you can do without them, this could be good enough. If you can't, you'll need to decide on whether the last non-NT map version is sufficient or purchase a new GPS that can accept the maps you want to put into it.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Tracking storage options GPSMAP 295


Every waypoint in the track has date/time, altitude and position. Second and subsequent waypoints will enable calculation and display of leg length, time, speed and direction between each par of points. The track can be displayed in 3D; in Google Earth for example. As far as I know there is no way to change the interval.

Does Garmin GPS 295 contains Maps for Africa and the Middle East


Hi there -

The GPSMap 295 can only have one region at a time - North America, South America, etc. You can purchase an updated database specifically for Africa and the Middle East - it's about $50 USD. It will erase whatever region you have in there right now (you can't store Africa/MidEast with America, for instance. It's one at a time.)

The Garmin Website:

http://shop.garmin.com/aviation/databases/

lets you download new Jeppesen databases to your GPSMap 295. Select your model, then select which region you want.

***Before you buy:*** You'll have to have the data cable to connect it to your computer. Without that, you will have no way to update the maps and database.

If you do have the data cable, the process is very easy - just follow the instructions carefully, and make sure all the numbers they ask you for are correct. I just did mine today. Good luck!

Battery power trouble


I have discovered an intermittent problem on my 10 year old 295 when powered by batteries.
It appears that the chrome plating is de-laminating from the battery contacts that are either side of the back panel attachment hole. At first glance it looks perfect but if you run a fingernail or other small item across the face of the contact you will see and hear a movement as if there a a loose layer of foil over it. This is causing all manner of faults including 'external power lost, shut-down in 30 seconds' when the external power was not even connected at all!

Street Map Program for Garmin GPSMAP 295


Detailed road map data, with addresses, hotels, gas stations, etc. can be loaded into a data-card/cartridge/memory-card using Garmin's Mapsource software such as Metroguide or City Navigator. This can be changed as needed via a PC.
The 295 does not have driving routing/guidance through the streets as most of today's GPSs have, but it will show you exactly where you are on the street (but it should be switched to Road mode).
Driving routing is possible on the PC using Mapsource, but ithe route doesn't transfer well to the 295 because of the limits on waypoints.
