Nuvi will not turn on


What model Garmin Nuvi ???....
On occasion, your Garmin GPS may experience technical malfunctions, including failing to power up.
When this happens, perform a manual hard reset of the unit.
A soft reset entails holding the power button until the unit powers down, and then pressing the it again to power the device back up.
However, when the unit won't turn on, a soft reset won't work. In this case, a hard reset is the only way to get the device up and running again.

Unplug power and USB cables to disconnect all sources of power to the unit.
Place your thumbnail into the groove located below the Garmin logo on the face of the unit.

Pry the faceplate off using gentle pressure.
Press the reset button and hold for approximately 3 seconds.
When the device is facing you, the reset button is located in the middle of the right-hand side of the front of the device.

Snap the faceplate back into place.
Press the power button.
Your GPS should now turn back on.

Garmin Nuvi With No Power
A Garmin Nuvi is a type of GPS device that can help you find your way around when traveling by motor vehicle.
You can mount the Garmin Nuvi inside the windshield of your vehicle and allow it to acquire the satellite signal.
This tells the device where you're located.
After that, you can find simple directions to get to a new location by entering the address into your Garmin Nuvi.
If you find that your Garmin Nuvi has limited or no power, you will need to do some troubleshooting to get it to work.

Change the fuse within your unit's power cable.
If your Garmin Nuvi has no power, the fuse may be out, meaning the device cannot be charged.
Plug your Garmin Nuvi into the power supply of your vehicle and turn the vehicle on.
The device cannot charge and get power unless the vehicle is running.


Allow the Garmin Nuvi to charge fully.
You might be unplugging it from the power source too soon, which could cause the device to have little or no power.

Regulate the temperature of your Garmin Nuvi.
It may not function properly if the temperature is too cold, below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, or too hot, above 113 degrees Fahrenheit.

Garmin nuvi 40 goes into usb mass storage mode when pluged to charge


I updated my Nuvi 40 with the latest software and it will not reboot into GPS mode with the usb cable connected. It used to work. I have figured out how to get it to charge with a standard USB cable:
1) Power it on.2) Press the battery icon for 8 seconds - it will enter TEST mode.3) Plug in your USB cable from the PC to the Nuvi - the screen will change to say charging.4) Press the power button 3 times rapidly - it will say Charging across the screen and it will go dim and then dark.5) To wake it up and use GPS mode while charging simply press the power button 3 times rapidly, again.
Works Great!

I have a garmin gps nuvi 255w and I wanted to register it, but a massage keeps on poping up saying external power lost shuting in 29 seconds.What should I do?


Try to charge your nuvi properly and full, or for at least 2hours before registering it. If the source of power connected to your nuvi is not strong enough, the nuvi might go off during an operation. Secure that the battery is well charged, then the source supplying the power is good enough to supply your nuvi with power before starting an operation.
Hope this helps.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 1450 - it will just shut off by itself even when charged and / or plugged in. Please help!


I had the same issue on my 1450 except it just would not power on anymore, even with a full charge. A soft reset will preserve your Home, Favorites, POis, etc. Leave the battery in the unit. Hold down on the lower right of the screen while holding down on the power button. After 20-30 seconds, you should see the Garmin splash screen. Have your PC/laptop ready with USB cable. Get the latest Map update downloaded and installed or just start using the unit again.

The power off


  1. Make sure you are sliding the power button all the way to the left.
    • If the unit does not respond, it may be that the battery is not charged.
  2. Connect the nuvi to a power source such as the USB cable and your computer.
  3. Reset the device, if the problem persists, by sliding the power button to the left and holding it in that position for 10 seconds
    • This resets the unit and prompts it to power on.
  4. Contact Garmin Support if this does not solve your problem at www.garmin.com

It doesn't hold a charge vary long, and right now ...


Disconnect the nuvi from the car charger and connect it to your computer's USB port with the supplied USB cable for 8 hours or more (overnight).

This will "recondition" the battery to accept charges again - as running it on the car power can trick the battery into creating a memory of short charge/discharge cycles. You can do this any time the battery starts acting like this.

Good luck!

My Garvin nuvi 200 has just stopped working. I cannot turn it on. Is there an onboard battery? Is the power button locked?


yes it has a on board battery. Check to see if the plug on the back of the unit is loose. If its not thats good "kind of" the unit won't work without a charge even hooked up to power. The battery may need to be replaced. They run about 15$ on E-bay

Garmin Nuvi stopped working and won't restart


Got a Garmin Nuvi 260. Same problem. I read the booklet. There's a reset button on the bottom. Disconnect from power. Push the reset button. Connect back to power. Now it works. The reset button is tiny and looks more like just text on the bottom sticker than it does a button. But push it anyway.
