Why does Garmin nuvi 1250 power on but dim to almost black when plugged into power outlet?


Make sure you have your time and time zone set to match your area. Also look in display settings to see if it is set to night mode versus auto adjust.

The display is dim and hard to see.


First, make sure that your brightness is turned up. You can access this from the menu by selecting "Display" then adjusting the display between 50% & 100%.

If the brightness is at 100% and the display is still dim, this is an indication that there is a problem with the backlight that lights up the LCD display from behind.

The backlight is integrated into the LCD display, so the entire display needs to be replaced. Was the unit dropped? If so, perhaps the LCD flex cable pulled out of the connector, slightly from one side, disconnecting the backlight. We strongly suggest that you don't try to repair the unit yourself. Additional damage can occur.

Hi,my garmin gps device have this problem: I power on the device and after a few minutes,the gps turn off,just shut down. This is a configuration problem or something else.


Hello,

If the unit completely turns off than there is an issue with it, if the screen dims but the unit is still running it may be in your display settings that you have it to automatically dim backlight to save power.

Hope this helps!

My garmin 305 only operates when connected to charger. It says that the charge is complete but does not operate when not connected to charger.


Go to the garmin website and install the firmware update.

Took about 5 minutes to do the whole thing. Seems to work fine now. Didn't even loose data.

Have you tried the brightness control in the setup menu? If so, most likely a defective display.

Display


It does not auto dim, it just remembers the settings. As soon as it has a GPS fix and knows the correct time it will switch to either day or night mode, and use the last setting you chose for that mode. Just give it a minute or so to get that GPS fix.
Mapsource, you mean the one on the PC? That you can upgrade by downloading it from Garmin, If you mean the maps on the GPS, you gave to order the DVD from Garmin and pay for the unlock key.
