My Nextar Q3 is a few years old and when I was trying to charge the battery while in my car the screen went blank and stopped giving directions. I tried restarting the unit but the screen went on briefly...


you need to open it and check the wires behind the power board sometimes those wires get loose from the solder weld the battery its ok if you have it connected to your car lighter, I had that happen to me so I opened it and found broken solder welds at the end of those wires, it is a very delicate work to get to it but I think that's what it is.

My Garmin nuvi 250W GPS is NOT powering on.


try connecting it to your computer via the usb cable. that may reset it. outdated maps will not cause this problem.

Gps stopped working


Hit your reset button, then try powrering it ON again. If that doesn't work, the ON/OFF switch is defective and the unit will need to be returned to Garmin for repair. It will probably be cheaper to find a new/used one on CraigsList.

Where's your reset button? Look in the manual; it's listed. Where's your manual? Download a PDF copy at Garmin's website.

Blank screen. Not working at all.


Try to turn it on while it is plugged into the charger and see if it works. if not, you might need to update your software using this website: www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00401-20

Black screen


This problem has happened to me before turn the gps unit over and clean off the gold colored conductors on the bottom take a paper clip and touch the 1st and 4th pins together this resets the unit be sure it is the 1st and 4th pins on the opposite side of the little power connector though.

Dropped the system everything working but will allow me to go to the map screen


Did you try to reset the unit? Place you thumbnail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the face plate. Gently pull off the face plate. Press the reset button. Turn the unit back on and see if it works - Of course replace the face plate carefully. Good luck! Dr. Know

Lost all my Saved Favorites!?!


If the favorites do not show up, unfortunately they may be gone forever. Check the Recently Found and see if any are there, then re-save them. I don't know why it would lose the favorites to begin with, but once gone, they are usually gone. By the way, resetting can remove them also.

Gps module


I just went through this with Lowrance. tthe LGC 2000 module on my LCX 20 depth finder "quit responding" out of the clear blue. You have to go Lowrance.com and they have some tests you can follow to see if it is a bad cable or the module itself. I had to replace the module. They charged $99 bucks plus $12.50 shipping for a new one. I bought it spring of 2008, and the unit was 3 months out of warranty when it quit working. Last season I had lower back fusion and didn't use it except for 2 times late in the season. Getting ahold of Lowrance is going to be an experience. I called twice and waited on hold over 35 minutes before I was suddenly cut off both times. I tried email too, but it took 3-5 days to receive a response. Mine broke down June 18 of this year. I started trying to get hold of Lowrance the next day. By the time all the back and forth emails with the delayed responses were done, I received my new unit on July 24. 5 weeks! with out my gps in MN. It is a short season up here as it is. I sure didn't enjoy waiting that long.

GPS screen went blank


My problem exactly. Unit would start up, acquire satellites, then the screen would go blank with a single vertical line. Unit would not respond to buttons or even turn off. Unit works fine after I did the reset:

- w/unit OFF, press and hold QUIT+DOWN+MENU
- press and release the power button, release DOWN, keep holding QUIT+MENU for 5 seconds.
- unit prompts something like: "erase all data;" choose yes.
- you will lose waypoints, etc.

Go to the Garmin support area for details.
