Question about GPS Devices
Ok so I decided I was going to return this thing tomorrow after hours of frustration, so I decided to get crazy with it and then figured out something that seems to have worked (will probably still exchange it for a Magellan or something other than Garmin though).
It's gonna sound crazy, but I opened up the Garmin drive on my computer (Mac, so not sure how this works on PC), and deleted everything I could see (not hidden files). EVERYTHING.
I then went ran Disk Utility and reformated the "Hard Drive" (on PC I would guess your able to do the same somehow). It still ran after that, but obviously could not find maps (since I just wiped every trace of a map away).
Next step, I ran Garmin Map Manager and transfered map for my state (AZ) (I have the latest map update saved on my computer, so I'm guessing Manager used that). Unplugged from comp, powered up, and voila! I will need to download my voices and vehicles again, but hey at least it's working again.
