I have had this happen after a software upgrade. Usually disconnecting the power from the back of the unit resolved it temporarily. If you have done an upgrade lately, you may want to re-install it to the unit again.

Hope this helps;

2730

I received a update from Garmin with a fix for the problem, but it did not work tried a master reset which also did not work so I guess it will have to be sent off for repair here in Canada. (cannot be sent to Garmin in U.S.)

What age is that unit?

and how many miles have you ridden with that unit?

Do you think vibration knocked it out or was it a recent program change?

I have the 2720, two years old and did Route 66 (Read very bumpy) 5 times on a HD Roadking and it is still working properly.

Thanx!

2730

The unit is 9 month's old it has done about 20,000 mile about 16,000 of that on my wing.
It was in my van at the time I had used it to navigate to where I was, I left the van for about 30 minute's got back in and it just flashed STREETPILOT.
I have never had a problem with the unit and I do not think it was vibration.

I was picking my new wing up at the time (trailer -10c) perhap's it was upset at being made redundant!! LOL :lol: :lol:

P.S. it will never be redundant I will still use it on long journey's.

Does it have a harddrive or a CF card for the map data base. If it has a CF card, try taking it out and reinserting it. It may have vibrated loose just enough to make it unreadable.

Update

Picked up my Garmin 2730 today they replaced it with a new one. I was expecting that if it was replaced it would be refurbished.
They did not tell me what was wrong with the old one.

How did you determine that it is new and not refurbished?
