    My garmin nuvi 200w is 3 days old. I will not turn on at all or respond to external power. I found the reset button under the bottom sticker. I guess you have to turn it on first to reset it. Befor this happened I had updated the software and added voices and car icons. Maybe this is the cause of the problem. I will probally just exchange it for a new one.

    Happy times.

If you've tried a hard reset and nothing happens, your ON/OFF switch might be broken. If it's still under warranty, return to Garmin for repair. If it is out of warranty, and you've tried all suggestions here, try this website. They replace the ON/OFF switch with a new one. is not affiliated with this website but they do seem to have a good track record.

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

Missing bluetooth software

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

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.
