I charged the unit and now it works fine. Plug into computer and charge for a while and the unit should work fine.

Check the pins at the connector on the back of your unit. Make sure one of them is not bent or broken off. One of the pins on mine is missing about 1/16" of the tip. My boat repair shop says it's the power lead, but Garmin wants $200 for a generic repair.

When turning on my tomtom xxl550 screen stays white


It appears that the TomTom device is not starting up.

Have you tried to RESET it ? .... either, hold down the power ON/OFF button for a long while ... (e.g. 30 seconds or more) ... until the device shuts down (turn off) and starts up (then let go of the button)..... or use a pin (paper clip) to push into the RESET hole at the bottom of the device.

If it still doesn't start up, your TomTom software may have been corrupted. You'd want to reinstall it from your back-up, or use the Home software to download and install a current Navigation software for your device (model).

On and off button on my system


Not sure about this system, but most gps units if you push the button thew go into standby. If you hold the button the shutdown screen comes up and asks if you want to shut the unit down. Might take 5-10 second hold though.

Garmin Nuvi 1350 - will not power on unless I hold power button down for the 10 second reset. At this point, the device powers on until it reaches the "loading maps" point and then shuts down.


If your device is currently experiencing the following symptoms it may need to come in for service/repair:
  • The device powers on and freezes at the Garmin logo with no trademark or copywrite info displayed on the device which normally shows up below the logo. The device will not display the Main Menu and will not go into Mass Storage Mode.
  • The device powers on and freezes at the Garmin logo and then flashes a white screen briefly. The device then begins a loop of showing the Garmin logo and then flashes the white screen over and over again. The device will not display the Main Menu and will not go into Mass Storage Mode.
  • The device powers on and then freezes or shuts down when displaying the Loading Maps screen.
For service/repair of a device due to the three symptoms listed above please select "No - I would like to submit a follow up email" below this article. You will be taken to an email form that you can submit to obtain a Return Material Authorization number.
Please note: It is important to completely fill out the form with as much information as possible including:
  • Market Name: On the Road
  • Serial Number (listed on the bottom of the device)
  • Question Type: Repair Information
  • Provide a short description of your problem or question: nuvi frozen on Garmin Logo
  • Full Name
  • Contact Phone Number
  • Shipping Address

The screen shuts down after between 30 & 60 secs


This is an option for the TomTom. If you enter the Options, there should be something about Power Save features. In there, you will see options to shut off the screen, and you can have it do so after a certain time, once a certain speed is reached etc. Just change the time in which it turns itself off to never and you're fixed.

I have a Garmin Street Pilot c330 which when plugged in and power button pushed, the screen lights up for a few seconds and shuts down. It was giving a low battery warning before shutting down. Where is teh battery in teh unity? and should I replace the fuse?

Shuts off, won't charge battery


Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

Won't turn on, will not charge. Is my battery bad?

Keeps turning off


Your power cord is cutting in and out. You either have a bad power cord or there is something wrong with the connection to the cigarette lighter. When the unit say "Running on battery - will turn off in 30 seconds" this mean that it has lost external power. This is by design so that when you shut off the engine external power is cut to the unit and that it will shut down.

It a shame that for the C330 Garmin decided to remove the LED light from the power cord that shows the power cord is connected correctly to the cigarette lighter.
