Maps not loading
roamer
I managed to eat my Vista Home Edition OS and had to reinstall my original point. Of course, I now have to reinstall all of my software. Most have gone ok but the S/W for my Garmin 2720 will not load. When I try to load maps, it starts with a 3/254 on the City Navigator.

When it gets to about 90% it aborts. I have the 2720 plugged in to the computer as prescribed. What am I doing wrong??

It's not clear to me exactly what you are trying to do.

Do you have City Navigator and Mapsource successfully installed on the computer and the problem is happening when you try to transfer the maps from Mapsource to the 2720?

Or is the problem happening when trying to install City Navigator on the computer?

I am trying to reinstall the Garmin software. I put the "nuMaps" "City Navigator" disk in and it gives me a screen to install. I don't have any Program on the computer. The 2720 has the maps already installed along with the waypoints and routes I created. I just want the Garmin software back on the Computer. How to do that?

Hi roamer,

I'm sorry but I can't help with that. I'm not sure what you mean by "it starts with 3/254 on the City Navigator". That is not something I am familiar with, e.g. I've never had a DVD with "nuMaps" on it. I've only had the ones with "MapSource" on them.

Is it possible for you to attach a screen capture of the window that is showing that message?

If your 2720 disk and map disk don't have MapSource on them, you can still install MapSource on the computer. First download Garmin BaseCamp and install it. Then download MapSource Garmin: MapSource Updates & Downloads and it will install.

Is that your problem?

I bought the unit on E-bay and didn't get any manuals/disks with it. Again, thanks.
