Hi, Has it got wet or frozen overnight? How old is the battery? Can you plug it in and try after an hour or so of charging?
Most likley your battery is dead.

If I have a garmin 50lm and I got it stolen and they reset it after they turn it on can be be trace or track by law enforcement??????

Car GPS units are receivers only. They do not have a transmitter that can be used for tracking. I am sorry that it was stolen. Report it to Garmin and the police. Also, post it at the following link so people can be made aware of it:

I lost my phone, I wish to locate it

The GPS in a phone is only for law enforcement and 911 operators. It helps them find you in an emergency situation.
Some phones have GPS for navigation but it can not be used to locate your phone.
Sorry, I hope you find it.
Thank you, Mr.Fix it guy

Hi i left my garmin nuvi in my works van over night during the realy cold weather and when i went to use it again it wont work it just comes up garmin then says loading maps and brings up a load bar which...


Did you let the unit warm to atleast room temperature before you tried to turn it on again? Often when a unit gets really cold the screen will have troubles refreshing. If the unit was at room temperature then it may have water damage, try keeping it in a vat of rice for 2-3 days and then try it again.

Hope this helps!

Lost pin

The Garmin Lock feature also learnt a place called 'Security Location' when you locked it. Go there and turn the receiver on. It should automagically work.

If you forget your PIN, and your Security Location, Garmin cannot unlock your GPS over the phone; you must send your GPS to Garmin to get it unlocked. Garmin may charge you for this service. If you do send the unit back to Garmin to be unlocked and you are found not to be the original owner of the GPS and it's determined to be stolen, Garmin will contact law enforcement.

Turning on

You may need to keep it plugged in and charged for a few hours before you turn it on again. I ran into a similar issue where there was no juice left in the battery, but after doing a full charge, it worked fine.
