Garmin GPS - stuck , not updating, no signal problems, update maps


If your Garmin GPS is stuck on a loading screen, not updating properly, not acquiring a signal or having other quirky problems. You can follow the steps below to help resolve some of these issues.

In order to update the firmware on your Garmin GPS device you will need a USB cable and Garmin's WebUpdater software. You can find the update software from the following link below,

Click here for update software

Click here for map updates

To update your firmware through the WebUpdater software, you want to turn off your GPS device, plug it into your computer. Run the WebUpdater software then turn on your device. If the software does not list your GPS then click the "Find Device" button.

Updating the maps can resolve issues with missing streets, or the unit being off entirely(roads are updated throughout the world on a constant basis). Keeping your software up to date is always recommended.

Firmware upgrades will help resolve issues in the operating software, and may even help GPS problems you are experiencing. If not, you can perform a soft reset. As a last resort, you will want to perform a hard reset below.

Perform a hard/soft reset
A hard reset will reset the device back to factory defaults. This will also delete any of your personal favorites saved on the device.

Soft Reset

Slide the power button to the left and hold in this position for 8 seconds. Push the switch to the right to power the GPS back on.


Hard Reset
Turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the GPS screen. Continue to hold while powering on the GPS. you should now have a prompt asking you to erase all data. Select Yes. Afterwards, it is recommended that you leave the GPS outside somewhere safe to acquire a GPS signal. Once this is done, you can update the GPS using the update steps described at the beginning of this article.

Ineed to update my garmin nuvi 205w series.


The instructions for updating your garmin satnav are available at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
When you update the maps the operating software is also updated. If you only want to update the software
  1. Connect your satnav to your computer.
  2. Download and install webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
  3. When webupdater is installed it'll search for updates to your operating software and install them if availiable.

I own the Kenwood DNX7140 navigation system. Periodically the screen says "Software Update Complete" and teh system locks up. I have never updated teh software though. What is wrong with it?


You need to update your software. Garmin does this through a downloaded file you burn to a CD. You then do a firmware update to the Kenwood from the CD. Instuctions are on-line at:

Garmin etrex legend


I had this problem today, updated the software, now the unit seems to be working perfectly. The unit "crashes" (single line down screen center) as soon as it get enough satelites to work with WAAS.

Go to Garmin site for software updates. Download and install the WebUpdater. Once or unit is hooked up to your computer and you have internet access, the software will download and update your GPS with the latest software fixes. I had software Version 3.7. For the Legend, Version 3.9 fixes the problems with WAAS.
