Open Question

Garmin Nuvi 1300 will only display USB mass storage mode

Received emails about updates but was afraid of losing data. Any way my Garmin just shut off by itself today and when I try to turn it on it is in USB mass storage mode. I cannot get it to do anything else. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: garmin 200w goes into usb mass storage mode when pluged to charge

Steps:
1) Disconnect the nuvi from the charging cable.
2) Press and hold the battery meter icon for 8 seconds. This puts the nuvi into "system test" mode.
3) Plug in the power cable.
4) Click "Exit." The nuvi will reboot, but remain in GPS mode!

There's a solution to your problem at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

The article deals with all possible reasons for there being no map data available but if your satnav is working other than that it may be just that the map is not selected. If you can get into the menus first try selecting the map by
pressing TOOLS
then SETTINGS or LOCALE on models that don't have a settings menu
Press MAP and then at the bottom of the screen press MAP INFO
Your map name should be there and a box with a tick beside the name.
If the box is not ticked press on the map name and it will cause the tick to appear. This might solve the problem. If not the map is probably locked. You'll find details of how to unlock the map at the above link.

Computer doesn't recognize garmin


Your computer uses USB Mass Storage Mode to detect your Garmin unit. If your computer does not detect your Garmin unit, you can try these troubleshooting steps:

Unplug the USB cable from the computer.
Turn the unit off and then back on again.
Plug the USB cable into your computer.
The unit either automatically goes into USB Mass Storage Mode or displays USB Mass Storage Mode as an option on the screen.

Note: If your computer still does not detect the unit, make sure that you plug the USB cable directly into the computer USB port and not the USB hub. If the cable is already plugged directly into the computer, try plugging it into a different port.

If you still experience problems, please contact Product Support.

Garmin shows picture of computer


Hello,

When the Garmin shows the picture of a computer, it means that the Nuvi is in mass storage mode. This mode is used to load software and map updates to the Nuvi and will usually go into this mode when connected to a computer or improper USB cable.
If this is occurring when it is connected to the vehicle power cable, chances are that the vehicle power cable is the wrong one.
You may also want to contact Garmin Tech Support for assistance.

My Garmin Nuvi 250 w gets stuck on the screen showing a picture connecting a computer to Garmin. I have it in my car and resetting hasn't worked. any suggestions


Hello,

The nuvi is being put into mass storage mode (the mode used to transfer data back and forth to a computer). This is usually caused by using the wrong vehicle power cable.
The correct cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-06.

Garmin 265 wt is charging via USB cable.It will not connect to the garmin website.


Hello,

The Garmin Communicator Plugin needs to be installed on your computer.
http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator

Also check to be sure that the data cable is the correct one.
When connect between the nuvi and the computer, the nuvi should show that it is in mass storage mode by displaying a computer on the screen.

The correct cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-01.

Whenever I turn on my Nuvi 200 it shows the mass storage mode icon and will not display maps. How do I get rid of this problem?


With a Nuvi, If a Garmin or Garmin compatible power cord is not used, GPS will stay on the USB Mass Storage mode and will not go to Map Screen even though connector fits fine. In this case GPS can slowly charge. So, you need to find/obtain a power supply that works right.

While driving my Garmin will just shut down. It acts like a cord is not plugged in tightly but they are. Have to restart & call up recent address to keep going. I'm on vacation so I don't have any ID...


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes, or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

My Garmin 1300 suddenly went to night screen for a couple of seconds and then shut off while driving. And now it won't turn back on even though there is power.
