FCC Compliance
The StreetPilot 2610/2650 complies with Part 15 of the FCC interference limits for Class B digital
devices FOR HOME OR OFFICE USE. These limits are designed to provide more reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation, and are more stringent than “outdoor” requirements.
Operation of this device is subject to the following conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there
is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment
off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and the receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or and experienced radio/TV technician for help.
The StreetPilot 2610/2650 does not contain any user-serviceable parts. Repairs should only be made

Introduction
Warnings and Cautions
CAUTION: Use the StreetPilot 2610/2650 at your own risk. To reduce the risk of unsafe operation,
carefully review and understand all aspects of this Owner’s Manual—and thoroughly practice operation
using the simulator mode prior to actual use. When in actual use, carefully compare indications from the
StreetPilot 2610/2650 to all available navigation sources, including the information from other NAVAIDs,
visual sightings, charts, etc. For safety, always resolve any discrepancies before continuing navigation.
CAUTION: IT IS THE USER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO USE THIS PRODUCT PRUDENTLY. THIS
PRODUCT IS INTENDED TO BE USED ONLY AS A NAVIGATIONAL AID AND MUST NOT BE USED
FOR ANY PURPOSE REQUIRING PRECISE MEASUREMENT OF DIRECTION, DISTANCE, LOCATION
OR TOPOGRAPHY. THIS PRODUCT SHOULD NOT BE USED AS AN AID TO DETERMINE GROUND
PROXIMITY FOR AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION.
,
CAUTION: The electronic chart is an aid to navigation and is designed to facilitate the use of authorized government charts, not replace them. Only official government charts and notices to mariners contain
all information needed for safe navigation – and, as always, the user is responsible for their prudent use.
MAP DATA INFORMATION: One of the goals of Garmin is to provide customers with the most
complete and accurate cartography that is available to us at a reasonable cost. We use a combination of
governmental and private data sources, which we identify as required in product literature and copyright
messages displayed to the consumer. Virtually all data sources contain inaccurate or incomplete data to
some degree. This is particularly true outside the United States, where complete and accurate digital data is
either not available or prohibitively expensive. Because the map data may not be perfect, it helps at times
to cross-check the unit’s map with your actual surroundings to confirm that you are arriving at the exact
destination.

2610_2650 OM.indd iv
8/1/2003, 4:15:33 PM
WARNING: The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the United States government, which
is solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance. The system is subject to changes which could affect
the accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment. Although the Garmin StreetPilot 2610/2650 is a precision electronic NAVigation AID (NAVAID), any NAVAID can be misused or misinterpreted and, therefore,
become unsafe.
WARNING: For use in vehicles, it is the sole responsibility of the owner/operator of the StreetPilot
2610/2650 to secure the unit so that it will not interfere with the vehicle’s operating controls, obstruct
the driver’s view of driving conditions, or cause damage or personal injury in the event of an accident. Do
not mount the StreetPilot 2610/2650 over air bag panels or in the field of air bag deployment. Air bags
expand with a rapid force that can propel objects in their path toward the driver or passengers causing
possible injury. Refer to air bag safety precautions contained in the vehicle’s owner manual. Do not mount
the StreetPilot 2610/2650 in a place where the driver or passengers are likely to impact it in an accident
or collision. The mounting hardware provided by Garmin is not warranted against collision damage or the
consequences thereof.
WARNING: For use in vehicles, it the sole responsibility of the driver of the vehicle to operate the
vehicle in a safe manner, maintain full surveillance of all driving conditions at all times, and not become
distracted by the StreetPilot 2610/2650 to the exclusion of safe driving practices. It is unsafe to operate
the controls of the StreetPilot 2610/2650 while you are driving. Failure by the driver of a vehicle equipped
with a StreetPilot 2610/2650 to pay full attention to operation of the vehicle and road conditions while the
vehicle is in motion could result in an accident or collision with property damage and personal injury.
WARNING: This product, its packaging, and its components contain chemicals known to the State of
California to cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm. This Notice is being provided in accordance
with California’s Proposition 65. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please
refer to our web site at http://www.garmin.com/prop65.

Introduction
Warnings and Cautions
Your StreetPilot is equipped with a ‘Safe Mode’ feature to
improve driver safety. By default, this feature is enabled,
but can be turned off to allow a passenger to operate
the unit. When your vehicle is moving, Safe Mode
disables certain StreetPilot functions which require
significant operator attention and may become a distraction to use while driving. See page 36 for details.
For instructions on vehicle installation, see
Appendix A (pages 44).

Introduction
Maintenance
GPS Cleaning
The StreetPilot 2610/2650 case and remote are constructed of high quality materials and do not require
user maintenance other than cleaning. Clean the unit using a cloth dampened with a mild detergent solution and then wipe dry. Avoid chemical cleaners and solvents that may damage plastic components.
Touchscreen Cleaning
The StreetPilot 2610/2650 touchscreen is intended primarily for finger operation. Although a PDA
stylus may also be used to operate touchscreen, never attempt this while operating a vehicle. Never use a
hard or sharp object to operate the touchscreen or damage may result. The touchscreen should be cleaned
using a soft, clean, lint-free cloth. Water, isopropyl alcohol, or eyeglass cleaner may be used if needed. If
these are used, apply liquid to cloth and then gently wipe touchscreen with moistened cloth.
Storage
Do not store the StreetPilot 2610/2650 where prolonged exposure to temperature extremes may occur
(such as in the trunk of a car) as permanent damage may result. User information, such as waypoints,
routes, etc. are retained in the unit’s memory without the need for external power. It is always a good
practice to back up important user data by manually recording it or downloading it to a PC (transferring it
to MapSource).
Storing alkaline batteries in the remote control for extended periods is not recommended. In order to
reduce the chance for battery leakage in the battery compartment, remove the batteries when storing the
unit for more than six months.

Driving Instructions
The Map page is the main operating page of the StreetPilot 2610/2650. It graphically shows you map
details, your current location, and marks your route to a destination with a magenta colored route line. It
tells you what direction to go or the direction you are traveling. Customizable data tabs on the right side
allow you to display information such as your speed, the distance you have traveled, the distance to the
next turn, the time remaining before reaching the next turn, and more. If the StreetPilot 2610/2650 has
yet to calculate your location, there is a flashing question mark over the vehicle pointer and the status text
displays ‘Acquiring Satellites’, ‘Searching for Satellites’, or ‘Locating Satellites’. A ‘Ready to Navigate’ voice
prompt and tab text (if a tab is set to ‘NextTurn’) appears.
The map display shows your present position and direction of movement as a triangular ‘Position Icon’
in the center of the map. The map display also shows the map scale, north reference, and geographic details
such as lakes, rivers, highways, and towns. When you are driving on roads that are not present in the
maps, you may see a circle drawn around the position pointer. This is the ‘accuracy circle’. The StreetPilot
2610/2650 uses both map resolution and GPS accuracy in defining your location to a point within this
“accuracy circle”. The smaller the circle, the more accurate your location. More detailed map features as
well as information about those features can be displayed using a CF data card containing map data transferred from a Garmin MapSource CD-ROM. When you zoom into smaller map scales, “MapSource” appears
directly below the map scale indicating that MapSource data is being used to draw a more detailed map.
The map may be also be toggled between a North Up or Track Up orientation. (see page 12)
For maximum map display, you can select ‘Hide
Tabs’. This section of the manual discusses how to
select between the displays. You may also TOUCH
the tabs to hide/show them.
The ‘Hide Tabs’ configuration showing no Navigation Information. TOUCH the placeholder to show

Map Page
Zooming, Panning and Pointing
There are three main actions you can perform on the Map page: zooming, panning, and pointing. The
map display has 24 map scales (from 120 feet to 800 miles) that are selected by pressing the remote IN
and OUT zoom keys or TOUCH the current map scale in the lower left corner of the map display. You can
change the map scale to show more map area with less detail, or less map area with more detail.
To change the map scale:
1. TOUCH the map scale on the lower left corner. A zoom/pan toolbar appears on the left side of the display and the data tabs on the right are hidden. TOUCH the ‘+’ magnifying glass icon to zoom IN to see
a smaller area with more detail. You may also use the remote IN zoom key (The toolbar does not appear
when using the remote.) Press and hold this remote key to zoom the map scale rapidly.
2. TOUCH the ‘-’ icon to zoom OUT to see a larger area with less detail. You may also us the remote OUT
zoom key. Press and hold this remote key to zoom the map scale rapidly.
Select ‘+’ to zoom in and ‘-’ to zoom out.
3. To return back to the normal Map page, TOUCH the ‘Back’ (Left) arrow in the upper left or press QUIT
on the remote.
You may also define a particular area to enlarge on the map by drawing a “box” on the touch screen,
then lifting your finger from the screen. The zoom/pan toolbar shows both the View Area and Pan icons in
the lower left. The larger of the two icons is the one that is active, with the inactive option appearing as a
smaller icon in the lower right on the zoon/pan toolbar. The View Area option can only be used with the
touch screen.
To zoom in on particular map area:
1. TOUCH the map to display the zoom/pan toolbar.
2. If the Pan (hand) icon is the larger of the two, TOUCH the icon. The icons change places and the View
Area icon is the larger.
Drag to create a box around the zoom area.
8
2610_2650 OM.indd 8
3. TOUCH and hold a point adjacent to the area you want to enlarge and then drag to create a box around
the area. Lift your finger to complete, allowing the map to redraw. The unit zooms in on the drawn area
and adjust the zoom scale as needed. The unit zooms in greater scale increments if a smaller box is
drawn. Note that when the View Area Selector is active, the Pan Map feature is not usable.
8/1/2003, 4:15:44 PM
When zoomed in to smaller map areas, ‘overzoom’ appears directly below the map scale. This indicates
the current scale exceeds the optimum resolution of available map detail. Extra caution should be used in
‘overzoom’ since some detail, such as roads, are drawn using widely spaced points and the actual layout of
these details may differ from the map presentation.
Panning allows you to move the map in order to view areas beyond the current map area. This provides
a ‘look ahead’ capability, which is particularly useful with smaller map areas. While in panning mode, the
data tabs on the right are hidden.
Reference
Map Page
To pan the Map page:
1. Use the remote THUMB STICK or TOUCH, hold, and drag your finger to move the map in any direction,
including diagonally.
2. Once you are finished panning, you can quickly remove the panning arrow and re-center the map on
your present position by pressing the remote QUIT key or TOUCH the back arrow in the upper left.
As you begin to pan the map with the remote, a pointer appears. This map pointer serves as a target
marker for the map. If you change the scale, the map is redrawn with the pointer at the center. When
the pointer is placed on a map object, the name of that object is highlighted and an ‘I’ (Information) icon
appears in the upper right corner. If the pointer is on a blank area of the map, a Create Waypoint ‘Flag’
appears. This feature applies to everything displayed on the map except route lines and track log data.
When a map item or waypoint name is highlighted, you can review information, show it on the map, or
execute a ‘Go To’ directly from the Map page. Waypoints have an additional ‘Delete’ option and all other
map items have a ‘Flag’ icon to create a waypoint at that item’s location.

Trip Information Page
Trip Information Page
The third main page is the Trip Information page. If you are making a long trip, you may find the Trip
Information page very useful. It indicates your current speed and many helpful statistics about your trip.
The following are useful suggestions to aid in maximizing the use of the Trip Information page:
Be certain to reset the Trip Computer before beginning a trip (see next page). If you make frequent
stops, leave the StreetPilot 2610/2650 powered on and receiving satellites. This allows the unit to accurately measure elapsed time during the trip. However, some vehicles disconnect power to the cigarette
lighter when the ignition is turned off.
The following trip information is displayed on the Trip Information page:
Time of Day – Current time.
Compass Ribbon – Shows your current compass heading while moving with a red indicator arrow.
The Trip Information page
Speed – This is the current vehicle speed, displayed in miles or kilometers an hour.
Odometer – A running total of distance traveled, based upon the distance between second-by-second location readings, since the Trip Computer was last reset.
Mileage Log – Allows you to use up to four different mileage odometers for recording trip distances. You
may also rename each mileage log (see next page).
Driving Avg – Your average speed of travel during the time the vehicle has been in motion, since the Trip
Computer was last reset.
Overall Avg – Your average speed of travel (including time stopped) during the time the StreetPilot 2610/
2650 has been tracking your location since the Trip Computer was last reset.
Select from different Mileage Logs.
Max Speed – The maximum speed recorded since the Trip Computer was last reset. Max Speed may also
be reset individually without resetting other Trip Computer information.
Driving Time – The length of time that the vehicle has been in motion since the Trip Computer was last
reset.
18
2610_2650 OM.indd 18
8/1/2003, 4:15:51 PM
Stopped Time – The length of time that the vehicle has been stopped (stationary) during the time the
StreetPilot has been tracking your location since the Trip Computer was last reset.
Total Time – The total length of time that the StreetPilot 2610/2650 has been tracking your location since
the Trip Computer was last reset. This is always equal to Driving Time plus Stopped Time.

Marking Waypoints
Marking Your Location as a Waypoint
It is useful to mark a location, so that you can drive to it again later. These locations are called
‘Waypoints’. The StreetPilot 2610/2650 can hold up to 500 Waypoints.
To mark your location as a Waypoint:
1. Hold down either the remote or unit PAGE key for 2 seconds and release. The ‘New Waypoint’ page
appears, with a default three-digit name for the new Waypoint in the upper-left portion of the page. The
StreetPilot 2610/2650 captures the location from the instant you release PAGE, so you do not need to
be concerned about moving around or losing satellite reception, your Waypoint is safely stored.
To rename the Waypoint, manually change the Coordinates or Elevation:
1. Select the Name, Coordinates, or Elevation field.
2. Enter the new waypoint name, waypoint coordinates, or elevation (pgs 4-5) and select ‘OK’ when done.
A waypoint is stored in memory as soon as the ‘New
Waypoint’ page appears.
Each waypoint may also be assigned a custom waypoint symbol for easy recognition on the Map page.
To change the Waypoint symbol:
1. Select the Waypoint symbol field (immediately to the left of the waypoint name).
2. Select the most appropriate symbol and select ‘OK. The new Waypoint is now stored in memory.
When stationary, you may also average a waypoint’s position to increase it’s accuracy. If you are moving
or average the waypoint the from another location, it changes the coordinates to the updated position.
To average a waypoint location:
1. From the New Waypoint screen, press the unit or remote MENU key and select ‘Average Location’.
2. The unit shows a Measurement Count and Estimated Accuracy. Select ‘Update <waypoint> Location’.
There are approximately 50 waypoint symbols to
choose from. These symbols are used to mark the
waypoint’s position on the Map page.
20
2610_2650 OM.indd 20
At the bottom of the Waypoint Marked and Waypoint Review page there are three option buttons that
may be selected:
Delete – deletes the waypoint.
Show On Map – Shows the waypoint on the Map page.
Go To – Tells the unit that you want to navigate to that waypoint.

Using the Find Menu
You can use the unit or remote FIND key to search for Waypoints, Cities, or Exits that are included in
the StreetPilot 2610/2650 basemap. In addition, if you are using City Navigator map data, you can search
for Points of Interest, Addresses, or Intersections (you must have the CF data card with map data loaded
inserted in the unit to use these functions). Your current location is normally used as the reference point
for the ‘Nearest’, ‘Distance’, and ‘Direction’ features. However, if you are using the panning arrow (Map
Pointer), it is used as the reference point.

Using the Find Menu
Finding Items ‘By Name’, ‘Near Here’, ‘Near <map item>’, or ‘Near Other’
Personal Waypoints, Cities, and Points of Interest on the Find menu can be viewed in four formats, ‘By
Name’ (a list of every item available for a category), ‘Near Here’ (a list of only those items for a category
that are nearby), ‘Near <map item>’ (position of the Map Pointer or final destination if navigating a route),
or ‘Near Other’ (a list of items near a certain point on the map or set of coordinates). The Find Nearest

Voice – This setting determines when the voice (and chime, if enabled) sounds. The StreetPilot 2610/2650
“speaks” status messages (if enabled), such as “external power lost”, and route navigation messages, such as
“drive point eight miles west and turn right”. If enabled, a single chime precedes all automatic voice navigation messages (see ‘Attention Tone’). There are three possible voice messages per route leg. The first
8/1/2003, 4:16:00 PM
message comes right after you have completed a turn and are starting a new leg: the voice message is
preceded by a lower pitched tone. The second message comes toward the end of the leg depending on how
fast you are progressing: this message is also preceded by a lower pitched tone. The last message on the
route leg comes right before a turn and is preceded by a higher pitched tone.
• Guidance and Status: the unit speaks guidance messages during route navigation, as well as status
messages such as “battery power low” and “lost satellite reception.”

• Shorter Distance: this setting causes distance to be used as the criteria for calculating your route. The
routes calculated with this setting is shorter in distance but may take more time to drive.
• Off Road: this setting causes your route to be a direct line from you to your destination. This may be
useful outside of detailed map coverage areas.
Ask Me My Preference – Determines whether you are prompted to change your current Route Preference
(‘Faster Time’, ‘Shorter Distance’, or ‘Off Road’) before route calculations. This setting can also be changed
from Yes to No from the Route Preference page. The following options are available:
• Yes: this setting results in the Route Preference page being displayed before route calculations. This
setting is recommended if you frequently have a different preference for your routes.
The ‘Off Road’ option is useful if you stop somewhere on your trip where there are no roads (scenic
area, etc.) and you still want to navigate (via a
straight line) using the StreetPilot 2610/2650.
• No: this setting skips the Route Preference page before route calculations. The StreetPilot 2610/2650
uses your current Route Preference for all route calculations. This setting is recommended if you usually have the same preference for your routes.
Calculation Method – Allows you to control how thoroughly the StreetPilot 2610/2650 searches for the
perfect route. There is a trade-off here between the length of time it takes to find a route and the quality
of that route (i.e., given the calculation criterion selected under ‘Route Preference’ settings). The following
options are available:
• Quickest Calculation: this gives you the fastest results, but the least optimal route.
• Quick Calculation: takes a bit more time to calculate than the ‘Quickest Calculation’ method, but
produces a better quality route.
• Better Route: even better quality route, but longer calculation time than the ‘Quick Calculation’
method.
The ‘Ask Me My Preference’ setting can also be
changed from the Routing File tab.
• Best Route: this gives the most optimal route, but takes the longest time to calculate.

Calculate Routes for – Lets you take full advantage of the routing information built into the City Navigator maps. Some roads have vehicle-based restrictions. For example, a street or gate may be accessible by
emergency vehicles only, or a residential street may not allow commercial trucking traffic. By specifying
which vehicle type you are driving, you can avoid being routed through an area that is prohibited for your
type of vehicle. Likewise, the StreetPilot 2610/2650 may give you access to roads or turns that wouldn’t be
available to normal traffic. The following options are available:
• Car/Motorcycle
• Truck (large semi-tractor/trailer/lorry)
• Bus
• Emergency (ambulance, fire department, police, etc.)
• Taxi
• Delivery (delivery vehicles)
• Bicycle (avoids routing through interstates and major highways)

The StreetPilot 2610/2650 is equipped with a ‘Safe Mode’ feature to improve driver safety. By default,
this feature is enabled, but can be turned off to allow a passenger to operate the unit. When your vehicle is
moving, ‘Safe Mode’ disables the StreetPilot 2610/2650 functions which require significant operator attention and may become a distraction while driving.
Disabled functions include:
• Map Panning
• All FIND key functions (except Recent List)
• All MENU key functions
• Creating new routes
When you come to a complete stop, these features are automatically re-enabled.
The ‘Safe Mode’ can be turned off to allow a passenger to operate the unit.

‘Interface’ Tab
The Interface tab only appears on the StreetPilot 2650 with Dead Reckoning (DR) sensors. The
StreetPilot 2650 must be installed by an qualified Garmin dealer (see page 48). It is recommended that you
record these settings down in case the unit needs service or the tab is reset to defaults. The ‘Interface’ file
tab provides the following input/output format settings:
Odometer (Vehicle Speed Sensor) Wave Type – The type (Sine or Square Wave) needs to be determined either by contacting the vehicle manufacturer or by using an oscilloscope. ‘Square Wave’ is the most
common type. Do not connect the DR Cable into the vehicle speed sensor signal from the ABS
control.
Reverse Light Polarity – Used to determine if there is a high or Low (No) volatage signal when the vehicle’s reverse light is activated. Contact the vehicle manufacturer for polarity or check with a voltmeter. Set to
‘High’ (most common) if a positive, high voltage is detected. Set to ‘Low’ if no or a low voltage is detected.
USB Format – This option allows you to turn the USB On (‘Garmin’) or Off (‘None’). If ‘Serial Format is
set to ‘Garmin’, then ‘USB Format’ is automatically set to ‘None’. Set this to ‘Garmin’ when connecting your
StreetPilot 2650 to a USB port to use with MapSource.

GPS Information Page
The GPS Information page provides a visual reference of GPS receiver functions, including current
satellite coverage, receiver status, and position accuracy. As the StreetPilot 2610/2650 locks onto satellites,
a signal strength bar appears for each satellite in view, with the appropriate satellite number (from 01-32)
underneath each bar. The progress of satellite acquisition is shown in three stages:
• No signal strength bar: the receiver is looking for the satellite(s) indicated. The corresponding
number(s) on the sky view is not highlighted.
A hollow bar indicates the receiver has found the
satellite and is collecting data.
• Hollow signal strength bar: the receiver has found the satellite and is collecting data.
• Solid green signal strength bar: the receiver has collected the necessary data and the satellite(s) is
ready for use. The corresponding number(s) on the sky view is highlighted.
Each satellite has a 30-second data transmission that must be collected (hollow signal strength bar, as
described above) before that satellite may be used for navigation (solid green signal strength bar). Once a
fix has been calculated, the StreetPilot 2610/2650 then updates your position, ground track, and ground
speed by selecting and using the best satellites in view.
Solid green bars indicate the receiver has collected
the necessary information and the satellite is ready
for use.

GPS Info Page
Sky View and Signal Strength Bars
The sky view and signal strength bars give you an indication of which satellites are currently visible, which satellites are being used to calculate a position fix, and the signal quality. The sky view shows
a “bird’s eye” view of each satellite position relative to the unit’s last known position. The outer circle
represents the horizon in all directions (with cardinal heading references). The inner circle represents an
elevation of 45° above the horizon. Any satellite depicted near the center is directly overhead. You can use
the sky view to help determine whether any satellites are being blocked and whether you have a current
position fix (indicated by ‘2D Navigation’ or ‘3D Navigation’ in the status field). You can also set the sky
view to a ‘Track Up’ instead of ‘North Up’ configuration (under the ‘Orientation’ field of the ‘Map’ tab page
under ‘Map Setup’), causing the top of the sky view to align to your current track heading. (See page 42)
Receiver Status
‘Acquiring Sats’ means the receiver is collecting
data from available satellites but has not collected
enough data to calculate a position fix.
As soon as the StreetPilot 2610/2650 has collected the necessary data to calculate a fix, the status field
indicates a 2D or 3D status (for ‘2D’, you may need to enter your elevation). Receiver status is indicated at
the top left corner of the page. The status is shown as one of the following conditions:
Searching Sky – The StreetPilot 2610/2650 is looking for any available satellites in view.
AutoLocate – The StreetPilot 2610/2650 is initializing and collecting new almanac data. This process can
take up to five minutes, depending on the satellites currently in view.
Acquiring Sats – The receiver is collecting data from available satellites, but has not collected enough data
to calculate a position fix.
2D Navigation – At least three satellites with good geometry have been locked onto and a two-dimensional position fix (latitude and longitude) is being calculated.
‘GPS is Off’ tells you the unit is being used indoors
and cannot be used for navigation.
40
2610_2650 OM.indd 40
3D Navigation – At least four satellites with good geometry have been locked onto and your position is
now being calculated in latitude, longitude and elevation.
Poor GPS Coverage – The receiver isn’t tracking enough satellites for a 2D or 3D fix due to bad satellite
geometry or due to a shaded antenna (driving between buildings, etc.)
8/1/2003, 4:16:06 PM
Not Usable – The receiver is unusable, possibly due to incorrect initialization or abnormal satellite conditions. Turn the unit off and back on to reset and re-initialize the receiver if necessary.
GPS is Off – The unit is being used indoors and cannot be used for navigation. When the unit is being
used indoors, battery life is saved since the GPS receiver is turned off.
Reference
GPS Info Page
Dead Reckoning (2650 only) – The unit isn’t tracking enough satellites for a 2D or 3D fix due to bad satellite geometry or due to a shaded antenna (driving between buildings, etc.) and is using Dead Reckoning.
‘Poor Satellite Reception’ Menu
If no satellites are received for several minutes (or an insufficient number of satellites are received to
determine a position fix), a message appears, prompting you to either turn off the GPS for using the unit
indoors for practice, update your approximate location (quicker) or have the unit automatically search for
the satellites (takes longer). Updating your approximate location ensures that the StreetPilot 2610/2650 is
searching for the correct satellites and is useful if you have traveled over 500 miles with the unit turned off.
If the unit has been stored for a few months and the displayed date is incorrect, the StreetPilot 2610/2650
does not know the current positions of the GPS satellites.
The ‘Poor Satellite Reception’ menu gives you
several options when an insufficient number of
satellites is received to determine a position fix.
The ‘Poor Satellite Reception’ prompt may appear when you first use your StreetPilot 2610/2650. The
prompt may also appear during normal use if the antenna is shaded or when the unit is used indoors.
Accuracy
The GPS Information page indicates the accuracy of the position fix. See Appendix I (pages 56-57) for
the StreetPilot 2610/2650 performance specifications which include accuracy.
The sun and moon icons on the satellite skyview are for
reference (notice that the icons are grayed if the sun/
moon is below the horizon). You can see the sunrise
and sunset times for your current location and date on
the Time Setup page under System Setup.

GPS Information Page Options
To display the GPS Information page options, press MENU (with the GPS Information page displayed).
The following options are available: Track Up/North Up, New Elevation, and New Location.
Track Up/North Up – Changes the sky view display from ‘North Up’ orientation to align to current direction of travel (ground track). If ‘Track Up’ is selected, ‘North Up’ appears as an option instead. You may also
TOUCH the sky view to toggle between Track Up and North Up.
New Location – Forces the StreetPilot 2610/2650 to search for any available satellite to determine its
position. This option is useful if you’ve relocated a long distance (greater than 500 miles) away from the last
location where the StreetPilot 2610/2650 was used. In such instances, without initialization, the StreetPilot
2610/2650 may be looking for the wrong group of satellites.
To select a new location:
Selecting ‘North Up’ displays the sky view with
North at the top.
1. Select ‘New Location’. A window appears with two options (‘Automatic’ and ‘Use Map’).
2. Select either ‘Automatic’ or ‘Use Map’.
3. Selecting ‘Automatic’ puts the unit in Autolocate mode and begins searching the sky for satellites. ‘For
‘Use Map’, a New Location map page appears. Pan and zoom the map pointer on the map to find your
approximate location then press IN on the THUMB STICK or TOUCH the checkmark in the upper right.
New Elevation – Allows you to designate your approximate elevation when the StreetPilot 2610/2650 is
acquiring satellites or navigating within a two-dimensional position. By default, 2D navigation attempts
to use the last known elevation. If the elevation shown is off by several hundred feet (or more), manually
entering your approximate elevation enables the receiver to more accurately determine a position fix. Once
the unit has a 3D position, it is not possible to enter an elevation.
To enter an elevation:
1. Select ‘New Elevation’.
2. Enter your approximate elevation using the steps on page 4 and select ‘OK”.

Vehicle Installation
WARNING: For use in vehicles, it is the sole responsibility of the owner/operator to place and secure the GPS
unit so that is does not interfere with the vehicle operating controls and safety devices, obstruct the driver’s view
of driving conditions, or cause damage or personal injury
in the event of an accident. Do not place the mounting
bracket over airbag panels or in the field of airbag
deployment. Airbags expand with a rapid fire force
that can propel objects in their path towards the vehicle
driver or passengers causing possible injury. Refer to
airbag safety precautions contained in the vehicle owner’s
manual. Do not place the mounting bracket where the
driver or passengers are likely to impact it in an accident
or collision. The mounting hardware provided by
Garmin is not warranted against collision damage or the
consequences thereof.
Vehicle Installation
The StreetPilot 2610/2650 is portable, allowing you to easily carry the unit from vehicle to vehicle or
take it with you once you reach your destination. A Dash Mount consisting of a mounting base, required
hardware, and adhesive pads is included with the StreetPilot 2610/2650. You may choose to use the nonskid friction mount, which is designed for convenient temporary mounting for your StreetPilot 2610/2650.
Installation should be performed with consideration for the following safety warnings:
Do not mount where
driver’s field of vision is
blocked
Do not mount over
airbag panels
Do not place unsecured on the vehicle
dash
Do not mount in front of an
airbag field of deployment
Select a suitable location for installation that allows routing of an external power cord and/or antenna
cable (if needed) to the GPS unit. If you are NOT using a remote antenna, be certain to select a location
where the GPS unit’s antenna has a relatively unobstructed view of the sky.
The StreepPilot 2650, with DR (Dead Reckoning), continues to work as a GPS navigation unit (the
same as the StreetPilot 2610) without the DR cable attached. It is possible to use the StreetPilot 2650 as a
portable, non-DR unit in multiple vehicles, without the DR cable installed in those vehicles.
NOTE: An optional external remote antenna (Garmin
GA 27C) may be needed when operating the unit in a
vehicle with a coated windshield or an in-screen heating
system which can block the GPS signals.

DR Cable Wiring (2650 Only)
DR Cable Wiring - For Dealer Installation
The StreetPilot 2650 must be installed by a licensed dealer due to the DR (Dead Reckoning) cable connections. The DR connection consists of a 2-wire harness that connects to the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor)
and Reverse Light Switch on the bare wire end and the External Speaker System with 12/24v DC Adapter
on the 2-prong molded connector end. See pages 44-47 for additional installtion instructions for the
StreetPilot 2650.
The Orange DR 1 cable wire attaches to the VSS. The unit software option ‘Odometer Wave Type’ needs to
be set to either ‘Square Wave’ or ’Sine Wave’ (see page 38). This may be determined either by contacting the
vehicle manufacturer or by using an oscilloscope. ‘Square Wave’ is the most common type. Do not connect the DR Cable into the vehicle speed sensor signal from the ABS control.
The Green DR 2 cable wire attaches to the Reverse Light Switch. The unit software options ‘Reverse Light
Polarity’ needs to be set to either ‘High’ or ’Low’ (see page 38). Contact the vehicle manufacturer for polarity or check with a voltmeter. Set to ‘High’ (most common) if a positive, high voltage is detected. Set to
‘Low’ if no or a low voltage is detected.
,
Interface Tab (2650 Only)
WARNING: the terms of the Garmin Warranty require that the DR (Dead Reckoning) Cable
with bare wire leads be installed by experienced installers at a qualified installation facility
(i.e., auto electrical accessory installation center). The user should not attempt installation
without proper knowledge of automotive electrical systems and skill in the use of special
tools or hardware required for installation.

Time Zones and UTC Time Offset
The StreetPilot 2610/2650 has many time zones built into memory. To display the correct local time,
simply choose the corresponding time zone. Internally, the StreetPilot 2610/2650 does the necessary
“offset” calculations to convert from UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) to selected local time zone.
To select a time zone:
Appendix B
Time Offsets
1. Press unit or remote MENU to select the Main Menu, then select ‘Options’.
2. Select the ‘Time’ file tab, then select the ‘Time Zone’ field to display a list of available time zones.
3. Select the desired time zone and press ENTER.
If the desired time zone is not pre-programmed into the StreetPilot 2610/2650, you’ll need to enter the
time offset manually. To do this, select ‘Other’ as the time zone. Once selected, a ‘UTC Offset’ field appears
directly adjacent to ‘Other’, allowing you to manually enter the difference between UTC and the local time
zone.
To manually enter a time zone offset:
1. Follow the steps above and select ‘Other’ in the ‘Time Zone’ field.
Many time zones are pre-programmed into your
StreetPilot 2610/2650 making display of local time
simple.
2. Select the ‘UTC Offset’ field, then use the enter the desired offset amount.
3. Select ‘OK’ when finished.
If you are not certain what the offset is between UTC and the local time zone, experiment. Simply enter
incremental offset values until the correct local time appears. To aid this endeavor, keep in mind that as
you move West of the Prime Meridian (0° longitude) the offset is negative (-), and as you move East of the
Prime Meridian the offset is positive (+). In other words, it is earlier in the day when you move West and
later in the day when you move East.
If the desired time zone is not pre-programmed, select
‘Other’ and enter the offset from UTC to the local time.

Using Diacritical Marks
Using Diacritical Marks
The European version of the StreetPilot 2610/2650 supports diacritical marks commonly used in
many European languages. Diacritical marks are added to letters to indicate a special phonetic value that
distinguishes it from an otherwise identical letter. The following letter/diacritic combinations, and special
characters, are supported in your StreetPilot 2610/2650:
À
É
Ñ
Ú
When finding cities, enter each character using the
base letter (or whatever corresponding letter with
diacritical marks appears), then proceed to the next
character.
Á
Ê
Ò
Û
Â
Ë

Ä
Í
Õ
Ÿ
Å

Ù
Ligatures are not displayed, but are instead converted to separate characters. For example, “Æ” or “æ”
appears on the StreetPilot 2610/2650 as “AE”. Similarly, “Œ” or “œ” appears on the StreetPilot 2610/2650
as “OE”. The “ß” character is displayed as “SS” on the StreetPilot 2610/2650.
Letters with diacritical marks are sorted together with those without diacritics. For example, the “Ç”
is sorted in the StreetPilot 2610/2650’s alphabet as a “C”, and the “Д is sorted as a “D”. This means that
sorted lists may contain a mix of diacritic marks for a given letter. Also note that the “Þ” character appears
at the end of the alphabet on the StreetPilot 2610/2650.
When searching for a city or point of interest (POI) that includes these special characters in its name,
your search proceeds as if the base letter and the same letter with diacritical marks are identical. In other
words, when searching for a city/POI that includes E, È, É, Ê or Ë in the name, simply enter “E” or whichever diacritic version appears and proceed to the next character in the name. As you continue to enter
additional characters, the appropriate character appears when the correct city/POI name is selected. You
can observe this by using the FIND key to select the following cities:
50
As you continue entering each character, previously
entered characters may change to appear with or
without diacritical marks. Once the desired name is
displayed select ‘OK’, then select the desired name to
display an information page.

3. Select the ‘A’ as the second character.
4. Select the ‘S’ as the third character. As you enter letters, notice how the ‘A’ character in the preceding
step changes from ‘A’ to an ‘A’ with diacritical marks.
Using Diacritical Marks
5. Continue entering the next three characters ‘T’, ‘E’ and ‘R’ in the same manner.
6. Select ‘Å’ as the seventh character. Notice that the diacritic letter appears first, not ‘A’, because
‘VÄSTERÅS’ is the only matching entry remaining in the city database.
7. Try this same exercise with København, Denmark; Logroño, Spain; or Genève, Switzerland.
For other special characters, try searching for the following cities: Bragança, Portugal (appears as
shown here); or Meißen, Germany (appears as “MEISSEN” in your StreetPilot 2610/2650).
If you wish to save a city/POI as a waypoint, the StreetPilot 2610/2650 assigns a waypoint name to
this location. Keep in mind that, although diacritical marks appear when using the FIND key, they are
not supported in most other StreetPilot 2610/2650 functions. Therefore, Västerås, Sweden appears as
“VASTERAS” when saved as a waypoint.
Other special characters appear on your
StreetPilot 2610/2650.
To save a city or point of interest as a waypoint:
1. Follow steps 1 through 6 above to select the desired city or point of interest (POI).
2. With the desired city or POI displayed, select the desired city or POI to display a waypoint information screen.
3. Select the on-screen Save as Waypoint ‘Flag’icon.

should always face towards the FRONT of the unit when inserting. Type I cards have a slight ridge on the
bottom of the card that aids with removal. When removing Type II cards, avoid pinching the card in the
middle, rather grab the card by the inserted top and bottom edges.
To install a CF data card:
1. Slide UP on the top portion of the CF card door, then open the door away from the unit.

2. Insert the CompactFlash card into the slot with the top facing toward the front of the StreetPilot 2610/
2650. Gently push the card in until the eject button extends out to about the end of the CF card. Do not
apply excessive force as this may damage the CF card and/or result in internal damage to
the unit! When properly inserted, the CF card protrudes slightly from the slot (not flush).
3. Close the card door by pushing the top of the card door towards the unit until it clicks and locks. Always
close the door completely to prevent water entry.
4. To remove the card, repeat step one, then push the eject button until it is flush with the casing. Gently
slide the CF card out of the unit.

CompactFlash® cards are widely available over the
counter, and you may purchase additional cards
at many different retailers. Because Garmin does
not manufacture these cards, it is possible that
CompactFlash cards by certain manufacturers may
generate radio frequency signals that interfere with the
operation of your StreetPilot. These circumstances are
beyond Garmin’s control. If this occurs, please use a CF
card from a different manufacturer.

MapSource City Navigator
A CD-ROM containing MapSource City Navigator mapping software is included with your
StreetPilot 2610/2650. City Navigator is designed specifically for the StreetPilot 2610/2650 and
contains detailed street maps and points of interest for major cities. This mapping software allows for
automatic routing; the map data also contains turn restrictions and other routing information. With
City Navigator data in your StreetPilot 2610/2650, simply enter an address or intersection, or search
for a point of interest using the unit or remote FIND key and the StreetPilot 2610/2650 automatically
plans a route and provides turn-by-turn directions to that location. You may also view the address,
phone number and map location of services or points of interest. Be aware that, depending on the City
Navigator version, not all areas are covered in detail by the City Navigator CD. To get detailed, streetlevel routing for major cities, you need to download maps from the City Navigator CD.
Transferring City Navigator CD Data to a CF Data Card
Included with your purchase of the StreetPilot 2610/2650 is a CompactFlash® Data Card, which
allows you to quickly download maps from your PC. Follow the directions with MapSource to install
the software, then connect the unit to your PC’s USB port. Once you’ve inserted the City Navigator CD
and started the MapSource program on your PC, move the cursor to the pull-down menu at the top of
the screen and select “City Navigator.”
Now, select the detailed coverage areas you want to download. You can continue to add map areas
until the total map size reaches the limit of your data card. With the CF data card inserted in your
StreetPilot, click on the download button at the top of the screen, and the information quickly downloads to the CF data card. As you load different map areas, MapSource overwrites previously stored
data.
For more information, please refer to the MapSource User’s Manual and Reference Guide under
“Creating and Using Map Sets” and “Transferring Data.”
Appendix D
Using MapSource
The MapSource City Navigator CD is designed
specifically for use with the StreetPilot 2610/2650, and
contains detailed street maps for major cities within a
regional area (for example, North America or Europe).
