Re: Garmin 2730 died during map upgrade
Some of the 27series had weak USB connection. If you have one that the USB works, you can take the non working one apart and see if you can take the working USB pc from one and install it in the other?
Or, if you only use the USB for map updates, I use MapQuest to figure out routes and then load them into my 665, you can temp wire in a USB port from gear you don't use or cut up a male female USB cable.
If you had to buy the map update and call Garmin to ask for trouble shooting help, if they determine the new map never made it into your unit, they might refund what you paid, if you bought it from them.
sometimes i've had to delete the Garmin USB drive, reboot my comp and then down load a driver.
