Garmin Street Pilot 7200 will not load maps

My Garmin StreetPilot 7200 will not load maps. I bought the unit in June 2006 and it worked without any problems until this problem arose. When I turn the unit on, when it starts to load the map, it shuts down. I have tried to install the Map Update 2008 from my PC; it allows me to do so, and after the update, it shuts down. I contacted Garmin and a technical advisor suggested I go to the Garmin site and attempt the update. I did and got the same results. I am trying to avoid having to send it back to Garmin who initially charges $300, in addition to shipping and insurance charges. I paid $1100 for the unit. I now feel that I have not gotten my moneys' worth. I would appreciate some feed back to my problem

I had the same problem on my StreetPilot 7200 after many edits of many routes. Suspect a scratchpad memory heap getting used up or fragmented had to hold the power button in for 15 seconds or until a message that says press yes to clear all data appears then quickly press yes before unit shuts down
This corrected the problem until the next time the heap gets fragmented but loss of all waypoints is the downside

Have a six month old StreetPilot 7200 and the 12 volt cable stopped working. Unit apparently gets no power. Works fine with 120 V AC cable. Garmin says they have no parts for this unit. Is there a simple...


First, make sure that the unit really does run off of +12V. Most Garmin units really run off of +5VDC and there is a charger/regulator that reduces the +12VDC to +5VDC. Look at the power cable and see what the output voltage is. Does the unit has a USB port?

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 https://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.

No detailed maps found that support routing the streetpilot cannont be used without them garmin streetpilot c510


You're unit is probably missing the gmapprom.img file (failed update maybe?).

Try contacting Garmin - if you've got registered maps they may send you another copy (although big file - 100+MB)

Update my garmin streetpilot i3


GARMIN offers a free download called "WebUpdater" for these products. Once you have the GARMIN USB driver for this unit installed on your computer (also avail. at GARMIN.com), you can run the WebUpdater, and it will update all known updates to the unit.

Downloads here

Installing "new" maps...
If you don't mean "updated" maps, then you would have to use another GARMIN mapping product like MapSource, then load the new maps into the unit via an SD FLASH card.

Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS cannot load map to memory card


A way around this is to insert the SD Card into the computer (SD Card reader), point the directory to the card and install the maps like that. I had to do that the first time I bought my unit because I couldn't figure it out and got frustrated. So I thought of this easy work-around.

Garmin Streetpliot 7200 Gremlins


As a last resort, you can try a master reset. With the unit off 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.

If the problem persists I would say you have a problem with the internal circuits and repair is the only option.

Cannot load map in my Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS


i dont think you can upload maps to an i3, it can only load pre-loaded maps on micro-sd cards.
