Question about Garmin nuvi 205W GPS Receiver
I used my Mac computer to charge a new Gaemin 205. I have a login set up whereby I have to log in prior to allowing the desktop to come up The first time I connected the Garmin I did not log in, so no desktop...charging went well. Next time I logged in and put the machine on SLEEP and hooked up the Garmin to the USB port. As I walk away the blank Mac screen lights up and I see the desktop as if I had awakened the computer.......The Garmin will not turn on now. The screen displays the Garmin Logo, a small message is given about loading maps, followed by a beep. It cycles on and off. That's it. This is the second time this has happened. The instruction book clearly states that a computer cam be used to charge the unit. What do you suggest?
Hold the power button to the left for approximately 15 seconds, then release it. It should reset the unit and turn ON. It happened to me before and it worked.
