If you have registered your device on the Garmin site, it will show up under your account. If the unit was bought in 2009, it would not be under warranty and any remedial fixes that may have been available are probably no longer offered 8 years later. Garmin support does do both warranty and non warranty work. You are probably better off buying a new unit,

In the Nuvi 1300 Bluetooth controls can be found in Tools - Settings - Bluetooth.

In this screen the Bluetooth communication mode can be switched on/off by pressing on the Bluetooth menu entry. Press Off and Save to store this setting.

Also existing (paired) connections with a cellphone can be dropped by pressing the phone menu entry and press the delete button.

To activate your Bluetooth, touch Tool>>Settings>Bluetooth.
For Bluetooth connection, touch the button to pair a Bluetooth device with wireless technology or any device you want to connect with. To disconnect from other Bluetooth device, touch the drop from the screen. To wipe off the Bluetooth device you paired to your nuvi, Touch remove from the nuvi paired list, and it will delete it from the nuvis memory.

Remove the power from unit while it is still on and then hold down the power button for about a minute. Reconnect to power source and see what happens. If still operating erratically then something is wrong with the electronics of the unit.

You need to find a power outlet in your car that is controlled by your ignition. It sounds like the outlet is on at all times. This will keep you Nuvi constantly powered.

Re-install both the maps and main software through Garmin Express and your PC. Probably more than once or twice before it "takes".

A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Check the map on the unit. Make sure that there is a check mark next to the map that you want to use. Make sure that the map is from the region that you are in. If the map says "2016 City Navigator US Lower 40 States NW" then the map will only cover Northwest (NW) and not the area in the East.

Take note that calibrating the screen does not just work the moment you try it, you need to try it repeatedly till you get it right. This is how to calibrate your nuvi:
  1. Turn off your nuvi,
  2. Press your finger on the upper left corner of the touch screen,
  3. While holding your finger on the touch screen for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen comes appears (white screen with touch dot),
  4. Follow the on screen instructions.
It is an easy fix. The solution above will help you out on that. Another solution is for you to remove the battery and fix it in back. That should also help.

Usually if you have lifetime traffic and map updates, the model comes with LMT which means Lifetime Map and Traffic updates. Or LM means Lifetime Map updates.
