PREFACE
Warning
This manual uses the term Warning to indicate a potentially hazardous situation, which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury.
Failure to avoid the following potentially hazardous situations could
result in an accident or collision resulting in death or serious injury.
When installing the unit in a vehicle, place the unit securely so that it does
not interfere with vehicle operating controls or obstruct the driver’s view of
the road (see diagram).
Do not mount
where driver’s
field of vision is
blocked.
Do not place
unsecured on
the vehicle
dash.
Do not mount in front of an airbag field of deployment.
When navigating, carefully compare information displayed on the unit to all
available navigation sources, including information from street signs, visual
sightings, and maps. For safety, always resolve any discrepancies or questions
before continuing navigation.
Always operate the vehicle in a safe manner. Do not become distracted by
the unit while driving, and always be fully aware of all driving conditions.
Minimize the amount of time spent viewing the screen of the unit while
driving and use voice prompts when possible.
Do not enter destinations, change settings, or access any functions requiring
prolonged use of the unit’s controls while driving. Pull over in a safe and
legal manner before attempting such operations.
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, refer to our
Web site at www.garmin.com/prop65.

PREFACE
Caution
This manual uses the term Caution to indicate a potentially hazardous situation, which, if not avoided, may result in minor injury or property damage. It may
also be used without the symbol to alert you to avoid unsafe practices.
Failure to avoid the following potentially hazardous situations may
result in injury or property damage.
The unit is designed to provide you with route suggestions. It does not reflect
road closures or road conditions, traffic congestion, weather conditions, or
other factors that may affect safety or timing while driving.
Use the unit only as a navigational aid. Do not attempt to use the unit for any
purpose requiring precise measurement of direction, distance, location, or
topography. This product should not be used to determine ground proximity
for aircraft navigation.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the United States
government, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance.
The government’s system is subject to changes which could affect the
accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment, including the unit.
Although the unit is a precision navigation device, any navigation device can
be misused or misinterpreted and, therefore, become unsafe.
The unit has no user-serviceable parts. If you ever have a problem with your
unit, take it to an authorized Garmin dealer for repairs.
The unit is fastened shut with screws. Any attempt to open the case to
change or modify the unit in any way voids your warranty and may result in
permanent damage to the equipment.
Important Information
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 in product literature and copyright messages displayed to the
consumer. Virtually all data sources contain inaccurate or incomplete data to some extent. In some countries, complete and accurate map information is either not
available or is prohibitively expensive.
NOTICE: This Category II radio communication device complies with Industry Canada Standard RSS-310.

PREFACE
Caring for Your StreetPilot 2820
The StreetPilot 2820 is constructed of high-quality materials and
does not require user maintenance other than cleaning.
Cleaning the Unit
Clean the unit’s outer casing using a cloth dampened with a mild
detergent solution. Wipe dry. Avoid chemical cleaners and solvents
that can damage plastic components.
Caring for the Touch Screen
The touch screen is intended to be operated with a finger. Never use
a hard or sharp object to operate the touch screen because damage
can result. Though a PDA stylus can also be used to operate the
touch screen, never attempt this while operating a vehicle.
Clean the touch screen using a soft, clean, lint-free cloth. Use
water, isopropyl alcohol, or eyeglass cleaner if needed. Apply the
liquid to the cloth and then gently wipe the touch screen.
vi
Protecting Your StreetPilot 2820
• Do not store the unit where prolonged exposure to extreme
temperatures can occur (such as in the trunk of a car), as
permanent damage may result.
• Do not store alkaline batteries in the remote control for
extended periods of time. To reduce the chance for battery
leakage in the battery compartment, remove the batteries
when storing the remote control for more than six months.
• To avoid theft, do not leave your StreetPilot 2820 in plain
sight when you leave your vehicle. Remove the automotive
mount from visible sight. Do not keep your unit in the glove
compartment; thieves know where to look. Register your
product at www.garmin.com/registration; this may help if
your unit is stolen.
