Question about Garmin nuvi 650 GPS Receiver
Where is the best spot on the windshield to mount my
Garmin nuvi 600/650? I live in New York
SOURCE: Garmin Street Pilot c340 mount
Try a hard reset using the reset button under the silver trim on the front. Pull off the trim ring by hooking your fingernail under it right below the logo.
If that doesn't work, then take the unit off of the mount for a better look at the contacts. Re-seat the mount onto the unit and see if that helped. If the mount is damaged, consider getting a friction mount instead of the suction cup. For about $40 you'd get new power contacts and a new cord, and the unit would sit on your dash instead of falling off the windshield all the time.
All of this is assuming that the problem occurred suddenly after a fall, and that your battery is still good.

have you tried the master reset?
plug it in to the usb port on your computer for a few hours.if that fails,then try the master reset.
note: that the master reset will erase all your saved data
with the unit off,and unplugged, try pressing and holding your finger on the low right corner of the screen and slide the power switch to the on position until you see the message "confirm if you really want to delete all user data?" hit yes and let it restart. then it will set up the nuvi again, so follow the prompts.
if that fails, hook up the nuvi to the web updater and get the latest update.
download the updater HERE
(actually i would do this either way)

This is a common problem with units having the serial numbers beginning with "14V", "12P" and "143". It's caused by a defective SHARP touchscreen and needs to be replaced. Please see this link for more info:
