PORTABLE GARMIN STREET PILOT III GPS COLOR MAP+SOFTWARE on EBay

Noticed this on Ebay little while ago. Looks like a pretty good deal for 49.95. I think it closes in 1-2 days. I was looking for the OEM software and came across it. I don't have anything to do with the seller.

By the way, I misplaced my original software and need it to reload latest street additions. Just replaced my crashed hard drive!!!!! Guess I'll call Garmin Monday. Hopefully I can download it .

With over 2 days left to that auction ... it's surely going to close quite a bit higher than $49.


What s/w do you need? I may be able to help you out.

Re: PORTABLE GARMIN STREET PILOT III GPS COLOR MAP+SOFTWARE on EBay

I'm missing the original software that came with my Street Pilot III. It got misplaced when I upgraded to the latest addition and then my hard drive crashed. Since it is about 4 years old, my guess is that Garmin will send me a replacement. I'll call them Monday. In order to reload the latest updates, I'll need my original. I still have all of the paperwork and serial numbers so I can supply them if asked. Thanks for the offer.

I think it's safe to assume that they'll just send them out. But I have no use for my Ver 5 (full install), 6 (update), and 7 (update) discs anymore.

Thumbs up GARMIN comes through again - Great Service!

I lost or misplaced the original version of City Navigator and Garmin agreed to issue me another DVD so I could reload my latest upgrade at no cost.

FYI - It is necessary (at least on the older versions of software) to keep your original software. Updates will not load without it.

Good deal. My impression is that, even today's units still need the first "Full Installation" DVD to be installed before you can use any "Update" DVD. Fortunately, Garmin is pretty good about sending out CDs or DVDs to those who have lost their original discs.

Re: PORTABLE GARMIN STREET PILOT III GPS COLOR MAP+SOFTWARE on EBay

They had to really dig to find a copy for my 5 year old Street Pilot. Didnt have any in stock and said they would burn one for me. Anyone out there with an old Street Pilot, make sure you keep the original software. It is slowly becoming obsolete. Actually it is obsolete but it does what I need it to do. New models are so much faster with enhanced features. Mine still works well but is slowwwwwww in recalculating.
