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.

SOURCE: my garmin nuvi 650 will not go to next screen it

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)

SOURCE: The touch screenon my Garmin Nuvi 600/650 won't

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:

My Garmin Nuvi 3790T will not acquire a satellite signal


Hello,

Does the GPS work outside of the vehicle?
Where is the GPS mounted?
If the GPS is under the dash, mounting it up on top of the dash will help.
If the Vauxhall has a windshield with a reflective metallic coating or treatment in the glass, this may result in poor GPS satellite reception.

My windshield mount for my Nuvi 660 came apart. The suction piece came apart from the plastic mount. Can you send me a new windshield mount? Thanks


FixYa provides answers only, it does not supply physical goods of any kind and has no connection of any kind with your product supplier/manufacturer.

So no, it's not possible for FixYa to provide spare parts, sorry.

But Garmin can. Click here for their online shop specific to your model. You might also find the same thing cheaper elsewhere on sites like Amazon, eBay and from other suppliers.

Good luck and please take a moment to rate my answer.

Windshield should not affect the signal. However if you are mounting it high up and there is a grid antenna in teh windshield that may cause a problem. try mounting it low down

Sticking my nuvi 260W to windshield - after a few days often in sun [winter/spring Mass.] thesuction cup mount falls of to dashboard- risking damage to nuvi. advice? without having to use permanent...


Here is what I do. I clean the spot on the windshield very good with Windex or another good window cleaner. I also clean the suction cup surface while I am doing the windshield. Next I place the GPS next to the Rearview Mirror. and connect the suction cup. Then I take the power cord and use it to tie a knot around the suction cup mount and then I loop it around the Rearview mirrow twice leaving no slack between the GPS and the Mirror. Be sure to not block you view in the mirror. If the GPS come loose from the windshield it will just fall far enough for the power cable to catch it and will just be swiing there instead of falling to the dashboard or floor. This is kind of a Mickey Mouse way to do things but it works.

Hello rkfowler,

While the suction cup mounts included with most GPS units are very effective, they certainly can fail. It sounds like you are doing everything you can to make it work: cleaning both the windshield and the cup itself. You also might try putting a few drops of water onto the suction cup before affixing it.

If the suction cup mounts aren't working out for you, Garmin does have a couple of other options including a vehicle mount that uses a super strong adhesive or a friction style mount. These are available from Garmin directly on their website (www.Garmin.com) or through your local consumer electronics store, such as Best Buy.

Best Regards,
Ken
