Hello,

Try doing a reset on the nuvi by pressing and holding the power button on for at least 10 seconds.
You could also try running the Garmin WebUpdater.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

When using wire in car, Garmin won't turn on, it starts, shows a low battery sign and shuts down. Was working fine on recent trip. It seems no power is reaching GPS. Nuvi 765T


Most likely the fuse in the charger plug has blown. The plug that goes into the cigarette lighter socket has a ring near the end. On most chargers it's silver but some of them are black. If you unscrew this ring the plug comes apart. Be careful not to lose any parts. You'll see the fuse in there. Replace it and it should be ok.
The other possibility is that the cigarette lighter socket is not working. You can check that easily enough by trying something else in it.

It turns on and goes to the garmin screen but will not load and flashes like it restarts


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.

I hope that helps.

Garmin Nuvi 650 powers off when connected with car


I had this problem. The problem turned out to be my car charger. Hooking the GPS up to my computer allowed it to charge and operate normally. A new car adapter might fix you right up.

Sound forGarmin NUVI 200 voice command only works sometimes.


I called the phne number 1-800-800-1020 ( I received from the free service list) and spoke to GARMIN customer service. The rep. ( Bill ) was so very nice. He was going to send me to the TECH. dept. but I had already tried re-setting my NUVI according to the trouble shooting directions. He said in most cases that's all it takes. I've sent my NUVI off to the address given to me and he said that they'd either repair or replace it within 10 days,, ALL AT NO COST TO ME!! Thank you FIXYA for the ph. number. Thank you GARMIN for the SERVICE. I can't wait to get my GARMIN NUVI 200 back, I enjoyed it when it was working . CHARLYNN

Nuvi 250- goes to blank screen when u hit SPELL


Sounds like corrupted firmware. Go to www.garmin.com and download their webupdater. Run it and connect a USB cable between your Nuvi and the PC. Let the webupdater look to see if there are any firmware updates. If so, install them. If not, let it reflash your current version.

Map Update Problem


Firs of all I hope you are using Garmin Map Updates for 2009, not 2008. It sounds like there is a connection issue. Make sure you can go into the drive on your computer and see the device as well as access files within it. If that is all fine: I have not seen a troubleshooting section yet unfortunately with Garmin for this map update (came out about 3 weeks ago) so i would try the ones for the older versions, should be the same.
