If using the lighter plug for this open it and see if a fuse is inside; a bad battery is possible but not real likely---you can also try for help with customer service for this brand.

SOURCE: garmin nuvi won't turn on

folks, the garmins have an on-board battery that needs to be powered up (at least occasionally) via the usb port - like from your computer. just using the dc car power cord does nothing for this battery. i've had this exact same problem on both my 760 and 780 nuvi units. fixed it using the usb charge. seems to run down differently for all the various nuvi models. my regular charge will hold for 7 hours on my old 660, my 760 and 780 work about 5 hours. my 'power up' failed on the 660 after 10 months with no internal battery charge, but the 7xx models only took about 5-6 months to 'fail.' hope this helps. jack b :-) in midland, tx usa

SOURCE: Downloaded and installed Bluetooth firmware update - Won't Pair

I recommend rerunning the webupdate software available below, which was updated March 30, 2010. Run through the update steps again.

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.
After successful webupdating, a hard reset is often helpful at this time, too.

I hope that helps.

My garmin nuvi won't turn on? i've tried to plug it into charger but nothing happens


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

Erratic behavior is an indication that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

It is not necessary for your computer to be able to 'see' your Nuvi in order for the firmware update to work. When it is successfully updated, the Nuvi will communicate properly to the computer, and your pc will 'see' it, and you can load your maps.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Would you like to erase the phonebook entries on your Garmin Nuvi 265WT, left over from when you bluetooth paired with your cell phone?

I can help you delete the phone numbers on your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

The phone numbers transferred to your Nuvi are only supposed to be available when your phone is paired to your cell phone. Changing the entry on your phone should allow that entry to show up changed the next time it is paired with the Nuvi. Sometimes, a bluetooth mix up causes entries to be duplicated or entries' phone numbers to get repeated.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data (this hard reset will remove the phonebook info from your nuvi), and then updating your Nuvi' firmware to make sure the nuvi and cell phone bluetooth process runs as smoothly as possible in the future.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Would you like to back up a copy of your Garmin Nuvi 265WT Favorites and Waypoints?

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After a hard reset or loss of data, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
I hope that helps.
