My garmin nuvi 1300 won't turn on


The Garmin Nuvi gps probably has halted to to either a software or hardware flaw. Sadly about the only way to bring it back may be to reset it to the factory defaults. Depending on your model, this might lose all your saved data.

My Garmin nuvi 295W won't turn on at all.?


Did you get the battery reinstalled correctly? The battery and a question mark means there's a battery problem.

I cannot get past the startup screen! The nuvi just shuts off.


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' 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.

Garmin nuvi 1350 showing numbers not addresses in favorites


Try pressing and HOLDING the power button for up to 15 seconds (or until it powers up - whichever happens first). This is a "hard reset" and should be done whenever the GPS stops acting as expected / locks up / won't turn on / etc..

When I turn on the unit the word Garmin keeps flashing over and over, won't start up.


Hello,

I would suggest you reset the unit,if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your garmin nuvi, I think its out of date and needs to be updated. Follow the procedures below on how to update your garmin nuvi:

1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB.
2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: "http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 "
3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults).
4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.

Also, in case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Good luck...

When i turn the garmin on, it only says garmin on it and it won't go any further


Hello,

Try doing a soft reset on the nuvi. If there is a reset button on the bottom, press and hold it until the nuvi powers back on. If it does not have the reset button on the bottom, slide and hold the power switch to the left for at least 10 seconds.
You could also try running the Garmin WebUpdater.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

If the problem cannot be resolved, it may be necessary to return the unit to Garmin to claim for warranty.

For some reason, my Garmin 200w will not turn on at all. It doesn't matter if i have it plugged in to my car charger or on the battery, it won't turn on. Is there a quick fix, or is it time to buy...


Have you tried resetting your 200W?
Nuvi 2xx & 2xxW: There are (2) different versions of this series.
Some will have the reset on the bottom, where the decal is. There will be a small flap labeled "reset".
On newer units, slide the On/off power switch to the left and hold for at least 8 seconds and then release.
Let me know if this worked for you.
Thanks for using FixYa

Garmin nuvi won't turn on


folks, the garmins have an on-board battery that needs to be powered up (at least occasionally) via the usb port - like from your computer. just using the dc car power cord does nothing for this battery. i've had this exact same problem on both my 760 and 780 nuvi units. fixed it using the usb charge. seems to run down differently for all the various nuvi models. my regular charge will hold for 7 hours on my old 660, my 760 and 780 work about 5 hours. my 'power up' failed on the 660 after 10 months with no internal battery charge, but the 7xx models only took about 5-6 months to 'fail.' hope this helps. jack b :-) in midland, tx usa
