Question about Nextar GPS Devices

2 Answers

The screen shows that it is unplugging I have had for less than a year and only used about 15 times item no.Q4-01 serial no. ML07120860016 I took it back to the store and they would not do anything for me. I am so disappointed in this product I am on a limited income and can not afford to go buy another one. I was so excited about having it and it stoped working whenI was out and I got lost trying to get home because I was depending on itto work. Thank you for your help.

Unscrew the tip of the cigarette lighter plug (grey, silver or black small ringon the tip)
inspect the fuse inside, be carefull not to lose the spring behind the fuse.
if fuse is blown replace with same new fuse.
put it back together the way you took it apart.
plug it in and see if you still get the message.
let me know if you need further assistance

    sometimes just that screw being a little lose will cause an intermittant power error message as it gains and loses power.

My Garmin 1490 LMT goes to white screen with "press dot" only its not to calibrate it bc no matter how many times you push it it wont go, it wont get out of that screen so I can't do...


The white screen indicates are internal error. It keeps telling the unit to go into calibration mode. The item will need to be sent to garmin for repair. 1-800-800-1020. If your unit was purchased recently (less than a year) it is covered under Garmins limited Warranty.

I've concted the cradle with the wrong transformer and the unit does not turn on, I may have burn it, please help!!!!!


Ouch, it is highly likely that you have overpowered the gps and it will need some internal repairs. If the item is less than 1 year old Garmin may fix it for you at no charge. If it is over 1 year old you can call them at 1-800-800-1020 .. It would probably be a good idea not to tell them that you may have caused the problem. We would not want you to void your warranty. Sorry for the bad news and please dont forget to rate me. Have a nice night.

I can not feed information as screen is kind of frozen


Give this a try, seems to work for me and others most the time.


Try this for me to see if this works: Let me know.Itneeds to be rebooted. Turn off, by holding off button down. Then once it is completely off, then turn it on, BUT when you go to turn it on, keep on button depressed, all the way until it turns on and then some for about 15 seconds, now you just rebooted system. Let me know, if does work, please click on the thumbs up to showed your a happy customer. Thanks Mike

Hi, i brought my unit at 2008. During this 2 years i used my unit a lot and for that reason i have lost my serial number (scratch). Is there any option that i can update my unit with new maps of Canada...


If the serial number isn't present on the outer case then you can find it another way.

Turn on the machine and press and hold the battery icon until the screen goes into diagnostic mode. The data displayed on the 1st screen will include the serial number. CAUTION: don't fiddle with any settings unless you know exactly what you're doing, but there are a few useful items on some screens including the facility to set the headphone output to line output. It's really useful if you want to stream music from the machine into an audio head unit.

My tomtom only gives Guam locations


Your problem might be that the GPS can't get a lock on the satellites and it doesn't know in which part of the world it is.

I suggest you download the latest updates and QuickFix, then leave the unti close to a windows (even if you are indoors). The unit should be able to getn afix on the GPS satellites in less than 15 minutes.

Please, let me know if you need more detailed instructions.

Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power


unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.

Garmin Nuvi 660 frozen screen


Don't know why it happens, but mine did the same thing. There's a reset button on the back, underneath where you lift up the antenna. Unplug the unit from the power source, push the reset button, reconnect to a power source and it should work fine; mine did. Good luck. Got this info from my Garmin owner's manual.
