    Nuvi 5000 starts up then when downloading the maps it locks up and doesn't proceed past that point. Can not find a reset button. Downloaded the updated software at garmin.com but still doesn't go past downloading the map when started up. Anyone have any ideas?

Mine was doing basically the same thing. Ended up being the power cord. Put a new cord in place and everything was normal.

Download and install this update. This will correct the problem. If you cannot get the system connect to the PC try installing the software directly to the SD Card.

Harmon nuvi 1300 won't go into preboot. I've tried everything I can imagine (power on touching each corner) none working even center. Tried holding the power button, loads up to garmin then powers off


Pre-boot mode is accessed by powering off the device and touching the left upper corner of the screen, while plugging in the USB cable into the unit with the other end already inserted into the USB port of a PC. Please note that pre-boot mode has a time limit and does not stay on indefinitely.

Garmin nuvi 660 goes into pre-boot mode, then loading, then loading software, then back to pre-boot mode and keeps looping through the 3 steps, and it won't shut down


There is a transient diode across the switch. Most likely it's shorted, casuing the symptom as if you were holding down the power switch and never letting go. I've seen and repaired this before.

Charging doesn't display map when charging


I learned that with the unit off - hold the on button down - don't release it. A PRE-BOOT MODE message will appear at the bottom and may flash. Continue holding down the start button. The first time I did it a series of dots came on the screen and I was instructed to touch each one. After that it started as normal. I plugged into a wall charger and but git the pc and nuvi icons again. I repeated the process - holding the on button on and let the PRE-BOOT MODE appear and kept holding but this time a different message came on and then the PRE-BOOT MODE appeared again. I let it go and took the unit to my car and plugged it into the Garmin car charger and it worked as it used to - normal. However, when I plugged it back in the house to the wall charged I got the pc and nuvi icon again. It appears that I am using the wrong wall charger as a previous writes stated. But the nuvi still worked in the car plugged into the nuvi charger. I hope this helps.

In case it is a software problem try this and see if it will fix it......follow these steps.
1. Power off the unit.
2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).
3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to try recover from the problem.

Stuck with pre boot mode on screen


"Will not turn off, stuck on with display saying 'pre boot mode'. Does nothing but this - please help!"

This indicates that the on/off switch is shorted out. You can duplicate this problem by taking a working Nuvi and keep holding down the on/off button when turning it on. It will stay in this mode until you let off on the power on/off button.

Are you running this unit while it is charging? Does the Nuvi 660 have a sufficient charge?

Try to do a hard reset on the unit.
