Question about Garmin GPS

2 Answers

The only thing it will do is direct me home. I can't type in any other adress- if I type a t, it come up as an f. It will not allow me to scroll down through favourites. Nothing happens if I touch the little "wrench". It seems to be locked, but it says the "Safe mode" is off. I have tried following the "reset' instructions, but nothing changes. It is a nuvi 4.3. The unit ID is 3374771580.

    It says the safe mode is off and the locked mode is off, and I cannot change them in any way, even to experiment. It is a Garmin Nuvi 650

  • mashmann Sep 08, 2008

    It's a Garmin 650. I did try a hard reset. I am now charging it , but think it may be the battery. It is like a computer that is locked up. None of the commands works.

  • mashmann Sep 08, 2008

    I have no instructions for removing the battery and have decided that I must find a store or service place to take it . I don't want to take any chances. For now, I am putting it away.

  • mashmann Sep 08, 2008

    It is under warranty. Thanks

Hi,

Pls try a hard reset as explained here.
"a hard reset in the Maintenance mode one can by pressing down on the top left corner of the Nuvi's screen while turning it on. This brings up the "Pre-Boot Mode". Keep pressing the left corner until the dialog box comes up asking you if want to go into Maintenance Mode, then press "Yes". One of the options is "Clear Waypoints". This will reset the unit back to factory conditions."

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    In some versions, the reset button is tucked away in the bottom-right corner (just to the right of the white barcode sticker).

    In some versions, the reset button is tucked away in the bottom-right corner (just to the right of the white barcode sticker).

    Of course reset not only will revert the unit back to factory default but would also delete most if not all user settings and configurations.

HI,

    you will find the safe mode and garmin lock in the system settings ...

  • Priya darshan Sep 08, 2008

    Please try tuning off the safe mode off by going into the system settings.If this doesn't help then try switching garmin lock off if its on and if garmin lock is on turn it off.

    Also please let me know your model no.
    Is this Garmin 660?

  • Priya darshan Sep 08, 2008

    Ok did you try a hard reset?

  • Priya darshan Sep 08, 2008

    Alright then try reinstalling your battery.After you recharge it.Remove the battery and insert it again.

  • Priya darshan Sep 08, 2008

    Ok.If this is still under warranty then getting it repaired is the best bet.

How do i change my home adress


Go to your Favorites. One of them should say, "Home." Delete this favorite. Then press the "Home" button after the "Where To?" screen. The unit should say, "Your Home Location Is Not Set" and ask if you want to set it. You can enter the correct address from there.

Dear, I had the same problem with my iPod. It's because (I guess) your modem/router has MAC adress filtering. You need to get your ipod full acces through you MAC filtering. To know your iPod's MAC adress, go to: Settings > General > Info > (scroll down) Wi-Fi Address. If you give me some more info 'bout your router/modem, I'll search some more info.

If your laptop has a wireless card built in - or external, you will be able to get the wireless signal.  You need to open your wireless dialog - Start > My Network Places > View Network Places
