Tip

Garmin GPS - stuck , not updating, no signal problems, update maps


If your Garmin GPS is stuck on a loading screen, not updating properly, not acquiring a signal or having other quirky problems. You can follow the steps below to help resolve some of these issues.

In order to update the firmware on your Garmin GPS device you will need a USB cable and Garmin's WebUpdater software. You can find the update software from the following link below,

Click here for update software

Click here for map updates

To update your firmware through the WebUpdater software, you want to turn off your GPS device, plug it into your computer. Run the WebUpdater software then turn on your device. If the software does not list your GPS then click the "Find Device" button.

Updating the maps can resolve issues with missing streets, or the unit being off entirely(roads are updated throughout the world on a constant basis). Keeping your software up to date is always recommended.

Firmware upgrades will help resolve issues in the operating software, and may even help GPS problems you are experiencing. If not, you can perform a soft reset. As a last resort, you will want to perform a hard reset below.

Perform a hard/soft reset
A hard reset will reset the device back to factory defaults. This will also delete any of your personal favorites saved on the device.

Soft Reset

Slide the power button to the left and hold in this position for 8 seconds. Push the switch to the right to power the GPS back on.


Hard Reset
Turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the GPS screen. Continue to hold while powering on the GPS. you should now have a prompt asking you to erase all data. Select Yes. Afterwards, it is recommended that you leave the GPS outside somewhere safe to acquire a GPS signal. Once this is done, you can update the GPS using the update steps described at the beginning of this article.

My garmin GPS says GPS off how do I turn GPS on


Look in the menus. There should be a setting to turn GPS on or off. if your GPS has a remote antenna, and it's not connected, make sure it is, that would cause the GPS to 'turn off' the GPS radio.

I have a nuvi 265w garmin. It turns on and then turns off without loading the map


Hello,

The GPS battery may need to be charged.
Does the GPS turn on when connected to a vehicle power cable?

Running the Garmin WebUpdater to load or reload the latest software will usually fix any bugs.

Contact Garmin Tech Support for assistance.

Unlock garmin 1390t gps forgot 4 diget pin


    • 1 Enter your four-digit personal identification number that you used to lock your Garmin GPS. When your Garmin GPS is locked, you need to enter the four-digit PIN every time you turn the device on.
    • 2 Drive to the security location that you set when you locked your Garmin GPS. Turn your Garmin GPS on and pull the GPS antenna up so that your GPS is able to acquire the satellite. Once your GPS recognizes that you are at your security location, it will unlock itself.
    • 3 Contact Garmin if you forgot your PIN and security location. You will need to send your GPS to Garmin to have it unlocked. You will also need to send a valid product registration or proof of purchase for Garmin to unlock your GPS. Call Garmin at (800) 800-1020 and get the shipping address and specific instructions from an authorized Garmin representative.

Hi, My Garmin nuvi displays 'gps is off' which means i am unable to de directed correctly as its saying im in the middle of no where. Please can you help? Thank you Laura


There are two possibilities as to why your GPS is not responding.

The first is to check your System Settings. Although it should not affect your GPS signal, check to see if the WAAS / EGNOS setting was turned off. If so, try turning it back on.

The other possibility is that the Garmin device is not reporting the status of your antenna properly. When the Antenna is closed on the nuvi 350, it disables the GPS functionality. Simply open the antenna to re-enable GPS. If the antenna IS open, there could be a hardware malfunction. This would require contacting Garmin for additional assistance.

GPS was working fine. Stopped and turned off car....


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.
