SOURCE: Garnin 260w slide switch will not turn off unit.

Try resetting the unit and also charge it using only the wall charger overnight. Here's how to reset -it just puts everything back to factory settings - 1- Turn unit on WHILE HOLDING your thumb in the lower right corner as shown in picture. 2-Select YES PLEASE Take the time to vote me up this is my only reward for trying to help.

I have a nvx225 gps how do i update this unit


Unfortunately the Audiovox NVX225 (which was also marketed under the identical model number for the Jensen brand name) has too date not had any map updates made available. For whatever reason the manufacturers never got around to updating their maps after selling these, as well as many other units to consumers. If you take a look on the Internet there are all kinds of forums and help sites that are full of people complaining about the fact that their GPS units are over 5 years old and have never been updated. Even with all of these complaints made public the companies still chose to not make the updates available.

There are websites that will give you files to download that will completely replace your GPS operating system and then allow you to download and install update map information that they have created. The real drawback to that is there is no guarantee the hack will work and it could render your unit totally unusable. Should you decide this is something you want to try you can do a Google search for your model number and the word hack. You will then be given a number of websites that will have the hack files available.

My garmin gps just went dead it wont turn on.whats the cause.


Most likely a failed battery. If the battery fails then the unit won't even operate via an external power supply.

The battery is not intended to be user replaceable: you can either return the unit to Garmin for repairs or if you search on YouTube there are how-to guides showing the battery replacement (click here for one example). It's not difficult, just a little bit fiddly. Avoid an "upgrade" battery if you can, just buy one which is equivalent to the original. Upgrade batteries don't always fit properly (the NewPower ones do though), and as they take longer to recharge they also get hotter putting other components under strain. The original battery specification is more than adequate for the intended device usage.

If you buy a replacement battery and the repair does not work, then your device has a more serious failure and you'll then need to replace the entire satnav as Garmin won't touch it if they see evidence of unauthorised repairs. That's the gamble you take: pay Garmin's charges (which are probably better spent on a new unit with a fresh warranty and mapping) or take a calculated risk that it's just the battery (relatively cheap, but worth almost nothing if you try to resell it).

Good luck, and please take a moment to rate my reply.

Device will not take charge green light comes on but screen blank


Hello there:
1. first refer to the useres manual if you still have it
2.Make sure that the power cord is in good condition and the fuse is not blown.
3. Double check all connections to ensure that there is good contact and not loose.
4. If you can get to the battery compartment remove the battery and check for the condition of the battery and the connections make sure they are all clean and are making good connection.
5. Now try to power up and press and hold in the reset for 2 minutes and then release and see if the unit will restart correctly.
if not i would contact a local tomtom dealer to have it bench tested. ok?
best regards michael

Battery goes dead after 3 hour use


As the battery charges and charges the charge time declines. You can get a high capacity battery for your garmin for about twenty dollars here:

My garmin 750 gps will not turn on when plugged into power source


A dead battery will cause the unit not to turn on, but it should turn on if connected to an external power source like an AC wall charger or DC car charger.

Update for GPS


No you have to go to the website. If you are wanting to update the maps there will probably be a charge. But the software and firmware is usually free. Hope this helps.

SD card


Not a solution I'm afraid, but an observation. I tried a 4Gb card to no avail. Formatted it with:FAT, FAT32 and NTFS and it still was not visible. My feeling is it will not read larger cards, perhaps topping out at 1 or 2Gb as I am currently using a 256Mb card with no problems.

Just an FYI.

Good Luck,

David
