SOURCE: Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS cannot load map to memory card

The Garmin C340 comes preloaded with maps while the I3 require that the maps be installed onto a micro sd card.

You can place the micro SD card into a SD adapter and use a regular card reader to download your maps. When the software ask for 'Device' to download to use the drop down arrow and find your drive letter associated with the card reader. Using a card reader will be much faster since the it is ubs 2.0 vs ubs 1.1

You could also go to Garmin website and download and install the USB drivers, see link below.

SOURCE: touch screen dos not work on garmin GPS street pilot 7200

Try resetting the unit by using a ball point pen or other sharp thing and press it for more than 10 seconds. It would be on the left/right/back side of your unit.

Also, try to hold your finger on the power key for approximately 15 seconds until you see a message "This operation will erase all waypoints, do you want to continue?"

Tap yes and the unit should reboot then attempt to acquire satellites. You will lose any favorites you have saved but it may save you a trip to the factory.

Please ask for further clarifications.

Please rate this solution as FixYa if found useful.

Thanks

SOURCE: need factory default for a garmin streetpilot c550 gps or pin unlock code?

There is no factory default unlock PIN code. You will need to take the unit back to your security location and it will automatically unlock.

7200 won't hold full North America upgrades. Can memory be increased?


Try this: Maximize your GPS Memory Your Garmin StreetPilot 7200 has limited storage space for waypoints, routes, and tracks. Once you reach that limit, your GPS can't hold any more data. Smart ExpertGPS users have figured out how to eke out every last bit of memory space on their Garmin GPS receivers. Before each outdoor adventure or visit to a project site, they use ExpertGPS to back up the contents of their GPS, and then clear the GPS data memory. They can then download as much data as possible onto their GPS (leaving some room for GPS data collection out in the field). When they get back, they use ExpertGPS to upload all of their Garmin waypoints, routes, and tracks onto their computer and save it. Once they've backed up the new data from their GPS, they can clear the memory again, keeping their GPS ready for their next trip.

On my garmin streetpilot 7200 it says maps are locked...


I'm not sure if the street pilot is the same as the garmin nuvi. There are details of how to unlock Garmin Nuvi satnav maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing
There's more information there than you'll need but you can skip to the part on unlocking maps. I'd imagine the street pilot wouldn't be a whole lot different from the nuvi as they're both made by garmin.

Country roads issue!!


I think you've probably got the unit set to 'Shorter Distance' rather than 'Faster Time' in the navigation preferences.

This can be changes by navigating from the main screen to Setup (the spanner icon at the bottom) --> Navigation --> Route Preference
