Streetpilot 2620 map upgrade

Hi,

I have map ver 8 on the 2620. I purchased the new 2009 CN NT map and loaded it. What happned is now I have 2 maps on the GPS, both can be enabled or disabled. I callled Garmin and spoke to a Tech who stated the 2009 should have updated the 2008 map.

Do to my work schedule I do not have the time to spend on the phone with Garmin.

How do I get just the 2009 map on the 2620?

Thanks,

Hugh

    I tried to load the City Navigator 2009 (NA) and it failed, apparently due to lack of disk space. Now there is no usable map on my StreetPilot 2620. Is there a utility to delete the map space and start over?

Some where I read that the "NT" model Map upgrade is not compatible with the 2620 series of StreetPilots. If this is correct, you may have to call Garmin for help to return to original mode of having just the earlier map.....

Is there any updated map for streetpilot 2620 since 2008?


Yes. There is one more mapset and then there will be no more for us using the StreetPilot 2620. You are looking for the disc set North American Navigator 2009. Make sure you do not purchase the NT version. I found the item on EBAY for $81and purchased it and it worked just fine. The 2009 is the last compatible map set that Garmin released for the 2620. Be certain that what you purchase includes that unlock key otherwise you will spend another $75 on that at the Garmin Unlock Site.

Here is the link that is good for a few more days, however, may relist it. The seller is yumelectronics and the search term is 2009 City Navigator.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390193775928

Here is the search for EBAY:
http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=city+navigator+2009

Here is the item on Garmin's site:
https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=8465

Listed as:
City Navigator® North America This product has been discontinued but is still available for purchase.

It is $99.99.

Good luck, and let me know if you have any other questions.

The garmin 2620 will not load maps


You are caught in a loop most likely caused by a failed microdrive. Search Garmin 2620 cornice for a thread that is likely to provide the information about the failure you are experiencing. In short, if it is the Cornice drive that has failed you will find it very difficult to repair, if not impossible depending on your level of expertise and ability to find a used part for repair as the drives needed are no longer manufactured or readily available.

Garmin StreetPilot c330, won't re& change maps.


I'm not 100% sure but we were told that there isnt' enough memory to hold all the maps in the c330 because the new maps are larger than the memory in the c330. Does it have an area to choose where you can take out Canada? If so then it has enough memory to load the maps minus Canada. Hope it helps you a bit.

New Maps - Can't update unit


The new maps will be unlocked to your GPS using the code Garmin supplied you.

You will have to add these maps to a second SD card if your present card is full, or else purchase a larger card. Since all the Mapsource NT 2008 Europe maps are 1,395MB in size, you'll need to purchase at least a 2GB SD card.

There is no reset button. Every time you turn off your Garmin and turn it back on it reloads everything fresh. What is likely the cause of what you are experiencing is a failed Cornice microdrive. It is near impossible to fix with the parts available today (May 2010) and it is more time management and cost effective simply to purchase a working 2610 from a third party site, or to purchase a new unit from the store that is still supported. In addition to the parts issue Garmin discontinued Map support for the 2620 (and 2610) in 2009.
