    Garmin nuvi 780 does not turn on.



    help?

  • stephaniemh Mar 04, 2009

    I have the same problem. I got my Garmin for Christmas 2008 and by Jan 3rd, 2009, it didn't turn on, but I figured it wasn't charged full and it turned on about 15 minutes later. It did it again in February and now as of a couple days ago, my Garmin will not turn on at all. Today is March 04, 2009.

Turn the on button at the top of the device o by pushing it to the left and hold in that position for at least 20 seconds. The device will reset and turn on. This has worked several times for me when the 780 has refused to turn on.

I have the nuvi 205w, and plugged it in to a charger, held the power button and it came on. Unplugged it from the charger, and attempted to turn it on again, without success, although it showed to have a full charge after I turned it on the first time. Held down the power button for about 20-30 seconds, and calibration came on, and it's worked fine since.

My Garmin nuvi CAN310 has the same problem turning on. Try pressing the reset button the on bottom of the unit. It's hard to see, but it is under the label on the right side. Make sure you are disconnected from a external power source. Then connect to power a source.

Sounds like it needs a firmware update.

To activate your Bluetooth, touch Tool>>Settings>Bluetooth.
For Bluetooth connection, touch the button to pair a Bluetooth device with wireless technology or any device you want to connect with.

Bluetooth icon missing


The Nuvi 750 does NOT include bluetooth capability. I don't know what you saw, or what you think you saw, but Garmin's website is very clear on this issue. NO BLUETOOTH WITH THE NUVI 750

I have a garmin nuvi and the cable that you put into your cigarette lighter will not work. I changed the fuse and it still will not keep the unit charged. I can charge it on my computer with a usb cable....


Do you see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph? This indicates that its charging. If it's under warranty, please contact Garmin on their website. www.garmin.com and call them. No need to worry about this if its under warranty. Send them your charger too.

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
