Have you tried pushing the reset button on the back under the antenna?

Try turning it on and listen for any sound, like the start up beep. Do you hear any sound at all after 30 seconds?

There's a couple possibilities that could have happened.

1. The screen and/or main board has been damaged.
2. The screen cable has come loose from the main board.

If the unit is under warranty (registered with Garmin) you can call them and see if they will fix it for you. They may charge you if they determine it was dropped or mishandled. www.garmin.com

If you have problems with getting them to fix it for you, I'll be happy to look at it for you and give you a quote. I have repaired many Nuvi's and I have references.

If interested, please email me at ks3r at sharc dot net.

Here is your Owner's Manual:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/2675_OwnersManual.pdf

To Charge Your Nuvi:
  • Connect the vehicle power cable to the mini-USB connector on your nuvi and to a power outlet in your vehicle. The vehicle key may need to be turned ON/ACC for the nuvi to charge.
  • Connect an AC adapter (optional accessory) to the nuvi and a wall outlet.
  • Connect your nuvi to a computer using a USB cable. The USB cable is included with some Nuvi packages. The computer must be on for the nuvi to charge.

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.
