While traveling in New Hampshire, the screen went blank (green)

I was traveling in New Hampshire. The system went blank - green hue only. I tried to reset/unplug, etc. Nothing happened. Any help would be appreciated as I am now in Canada with no GPS to help me return.

Display went blank to the calibration screen while traveling


Try using a stylus if you have one or a pen (tip retracted) on the screen. Meaning something finer and thinner then your finger. Don't know why but this works on my unit when the recaibration screen comes up.

My Nextar Q3 is a few years old and when I was trying to charge the battery while in my car the screen went blank and stopped giving directions. I tried restarting the unit but the screen went on briefly...


you need to open it and check the wires behind the power board sometimes those wires get loose from the solder weld the battery its ok if you have it connected to your car lighter, I had that happen to me so I opened it and found broken solder welds at the end of those wires, it is a very delicate work to get to it but I think that's what it is.

Brand new Garmin 1300. Husband now travelling, un...


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.

Try removing the memory card, then performing the problematic functions, then shut off the unit. Wait 5 minutes, insert memory card, turn on unit and perform functions again, see if it works.

Could be a loose contact at the connection between the wire and at the gps unit.

Think the green light must be on at the charger port and also on the gps unit.

This green light can be found near the power button on the gps unit.

Disreguarding delholmes1 inappropriate comment, this could be due to lack of charge? Try charging it, or you could contact the seller for a refund or a new product
