My garmin 205 turns off when t start to run but will for 13 hours just sitting there.

If your Nuvi won't turn on, it's possible that it's locked up. Try using the reset button as follows.

Nuvi 3xx & 6xx Series: The reset is located on the rear of the unit, underneath the antenna. Press and hold it for at least 8 seconds and then release.

Nuvi 7xx Series: Slide the On/off power switch to the left and hold for at least 8 seconds and then release.

Nuvi 2xx & 2xxW: There are (2) different versions of this series.

Some will have the reset on the bottom, where the decal is. There will be a small flap labeled "reset".

On newer units, slide the On/off power switch to the left and hold for at least 8 seconds and then release.

Wont turn on

How do you turn it on ? Power button needs be pushed left to turn on, right is locking device.

If this does not work, check charging the device. Plug it in charger for 4 hours.

If all this is OK, you should reset device
Hold power button on left for 8 seconds. Release, then restart normally.

The touch screen on my magellan 5310 no longer responds to anything. It is 3 months old and barely used. I used it for 3 days driving to Florida. The next trip it stopped responding to touch sfter 2...

Hi gmarleau

an reset or an update might fix it, but if it doesnt, its still under warranty!

turn on your 5310 and locate the reset on the bottom left of your unit (small pinhole) use a paperclip to insert and depress the reset switch.

if that fails and you want to try an update, you can get the 4.72 update HERE you have to sign in and register before they will let you download anything.

to send it in for warranty repair or replacement call the number listed below.

I used my Garmin 760 all morning, left it in the car, and 4 hours later it did not work. I have had this since December and have never had this problem. It will not turn on.

hey there, I am not sure where you are located or what your outside temperature is but unfortunately the GPS unit that is made for a car is not made to be left in a car. You cannot leave it in cold or hot conditions or it will fail. There should be a temperature rating in the instruction manual somewhere to check. If this is not the case let me know, if it is, believe me you are not the first to leave a car accessory (GPS) in a car when it is not (should be) designed to be.

My Navigon 2100 is not picking up a gps signal

try and get your money back!!
GPS should a signal in a couple of minutes,they can be slow on occasion,but yours sounds like it's dead.

hope you used a credit card,at least then you have a little more leverage if you dispute the charge.

Nuvi 760 suddenly stopped working - will not turn back on

Try holding the power slide to the left and holding it there for 8 seconds. If that doesn't work, try charging it via your PC & USB cable. If that doesn't work, try a mains charger if you have one (I had to do this with mine). Good luck!

Will not come on.

GPS units should never be permanently left in vehicles. The vehicle interiors get way too cold or hot depending on the climate you live in and is very damaging.

Try taking it indoors and connect it via the supplied a/c wall charger and see if it turns on.

Fine Digital FineDrive 400 GPS Receiver Problem

The company went bankrupt. I get a "unable to read map data error". Called for over a month, sent email after email. Finally contacted a company that fixes Finedrives and they told me the company (Fine Digital) is out of business and will not warranty the unit...ten months old at the time. The company who fixes these machines said that it would be cheaper to buy a new(different company) gps system compared to having them fix the Finedrive 400.
