Nuvi 1300 wont take new waypoints

I have completed a map update, reloaded garmin communicator software, tried a new usb cord, and done a reset on the unit. I use it for geocaching (driving directions) and had no problems for 6 months - all of a sudden today, it won't take new waypoints.

    Fixed it! For some reason GSAK was hijacking my waypoints :)

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi Firmaware Update Complete, Unable to catch satellite signal

So what happens when you connect it to the PC?
Make sure no sd cards are installed while you do this.
download and install web updater, run it it gets to a screen where it looks for the gps, plug the usb cable into the GPS (no USB hubs please!!!) Make sure it detects the GPS before you continue. Select the updates you need (don't install all the languages !!) after this is done the program will report the downloads are on the garmin, unplug the unit and it will reboot and whilst rebooting it will install the updates....so don't touch it until it reboots again and displays the regular screen....and make sure the batery is fully charged before you do this...!

SOURCE: update problem with Garmin Nuvi 255w

I had same problem. I called Garmin customer service who connected me to a computer rep. Garmin hooks with your computer that you have your Garmin plugged into.They can upload the proper software in no time at all.
The rep told me that after I updated my Garmin I might have turned off the unit before it completed updating the new software. You need to wait until the screen with "Where to?" appears.
It works great now. Prepare to wait on hold for a while. I waited just over an hour on Monday, their busiest day.

SOURCE: Webupdater won't detect Garmin unit

I have the same problem of the Nuvi 850 being recognized by webupdater. I downloaded 4.30 firmware update using this link http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4043 plug the unit in and ran the update. It will ask you to disconnect once it is done. The unit will boot up after a few update progress bars. Plug it back in and launch webupdater.

Enjoy,

Fellow 850 owner.

Guys and or ladies... I know that you have to create a folder named "GARMIN" in the sd card so the maps can be recognize. Maybe this solves your problem. Let me know if it works.

1300 nuvi screen comes up loading maps and stops


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that 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.
