After 6 months not turning on


if all you are getting is a green light and no screen coming on, you have blown one of two chips inside it by using a dodgy car charger

Just got new battery put in because of recall only used one time. Turned on garmin and garmin screen came on and is stuck on this screen. Does not turn off or on What's up?


Your device freezed that is why it is stuck on the garmin screen. You need to first reset your garmin by holding the power on/off button for about 15 seconds, that way it will restart.
About the battery, when you get a new battery for your device, you need to charge it for about 3 hours before powering on, once you power on without charging it first, then it might kill the cells of the battery as they are lithium ion battery. What you have to do is to remove the battery, insert it back, then you plug it to a power source for about 3 hours, be sure that the battery is charging as the green light comes on as you plug it. If the green light does not come on, then you need to connect it to a computer using your USB cable, that way it will charge. Once it is charged for about 3hours, then you will be able to turn on your device. First reset, then charge battery. That should do the job for you.
Hope this information was helpful.

Green power light comes on when you plug in car charger in but screen is blank


green power light is on charger or in GPS? IF it is in GPD that mean you have to push and hold the power button on GPS for about 1min and release and wait , if the green light is on charger that mean the GPS connector is bad and have to be replaced.

No Green Light or Lite Screen


I fixed the problem DAH the sleep switch was on and in order to turn it back on, I had to slide the little switch that is located on top of the unit.
