Unfortunately, there isn't an easy solution for the Nuvi owner as it requires a custom piece of firmware to flash the unit to make it at least boot. This problem is often caused during a failed firmware and/or map update.
It sounds like a file was corrupted. Sometimes it is better to connect the unit
up to a PC, delete the old map and then proceed to install the new one. There
are so many issues with memory space causing failed downloads and corrupted
If the map file is missing, the unit will boot-up OK, it will just
say "Map data unavailable" but if the map file or associated map files are
corrupted, it can cause the unit to crash. Your PC won't recognize the Nuvi
because you have the reach the main screen before the data communication mode
routines are accessed.
We've had some success in restoring some of these
units by flashing a "fix" firmware in "pre-boot mode" that doesn't try to load
the map or map associated files. This should then allow the unit to boot. Once
the unit boots, Windows will recognize it and then you can copy a map over to it
from the PC. Reboot the unit and then flash it with the standard
I had this problem with my nuvi 1300. I'm not sure if the same procedure will work for yours, but this is what I did.
I tried holding the power button for 10-15 seconds, which rebooted the unit, but it kept getting stuck on "Loading Maps." and then shut off.
I then plugged it into the USB port of my PC, which started the unit up for data transfer purposes. I then unplugged it, and it restarted properly.
pull the surround off the front of the front of the gps. there should be a button under the plastic or look on the back and there should be a reset button that you can stick a pinhead into. if that doesnt work then your gps doesnt work and you need to replace.
Your unit most likely has a firmware error, which could be due to a corrupt file. To solve it you yourself can try to update the firmware when connecting to the pc, if the unit cannot stay on enough for this to be performed, your unit will have to be sent in to service.
I had the same problem once and the solution is to reboot the DVD player. to do this you need to unplug the unit for 3 or more minutes and then you will have to go through the setup process again but everything should work fine and interlaced (not progressive) should be the dvd format again.
My Garmin 660 after going thru the initial start up of "loading map" it will just SHUTDOWN. I have tried to clear the data in the diagnostic menu as recomendated by Garmin support to no avail. At the start, the trouble is it will just stay in the loading map stage. Then later it begin to shutdown.
In February I posted that I will replace the cornice drive on my 2620 because I had this problem Well I did that, but could not fix the problem. Garmin is asking $275 to replace my unit, I did not wanted to pay them that much. So I bought a 2610 at eBay for a $100 and don't have to worry about hard drives any longer. To get this screen on a GPS push "menu+find" and then turn on unit. It will show this diagnostic screen.
