Garmin GPSMaps 78sc won't power up

After pushing power on button the GPS 78sc starts to power on but then quickly tunes off. Tried a new set of batteries as well as using the cigeratte lighter power connection. Made no difference. I used the device earlier that day for about 4-5 hours with no problem.

SOURCE: garmin c340 gps freezes up

Avoid buying Garmin GPS. Their units have a non user replaceable battery that last about 2 years. After that, you have to send the unit to Garmin to replace the battery and be hit with at least $150 plus shipping. Possibly more if they need to fine tune something else. Look at other brands with easier battery replacement such as Sony, Navigon, etc. Garmin is a total rip off.

SOURCE: garmin nuvi does turn on when connected to power in car

Hi

I had the same problem. My Nuvi 350 did not power up for a couple of days. I suspected moisture to be the culprit. So I took my wife's hair dryer and blew hot air(in the intermediate setting) into the SD card slot in the GPS for a couple of minutes. Take care not to overheat the GPS or Screen.
Pronto my GPS powered up without any issues.
Hope this helps

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.

SOURCE: How can I recharge the battery on my Garmin Nuvi?

Just use your USB cable that came with it to connect it to your computer. It will charge just fine. You can also use a cell phone charger that has a USB connector. A lot of cell phones use this type of charger now and the charge will work fine with the GPS>

My Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS is Silent. It won't even beep when I push the buttons


Try plugging in a set of headphones. If you hear sound, then your speaker is blown. Please see this link for more info.

Garmin nuvi 1390t won't read or recognize microsd


The 1390t works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work in older devices.
You need to go with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I've a garmin 1490, it's not possible to start a hard reset. The logo garmin is on the screen until battery is off.


Have you tried holding the power button for more than 20 secs - or after draining the battery and restarting on charger holding the lower right screen corner for at least 20 seconds?

It won't turn on and even if i plug it into the computer or a ciagrette lighter nothing happens. it was working perfectly fine when i was using it and now i have absolutely nothing. it kept saying low...


Have you tried pressing and holding the power button for about 8 to 10 seconds? It should go on then off. Then wait a few seconds the turn it on normally. This usually resets the unit.
If this does not work try a hard reset.
Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.

Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.

Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite data.

Once it gets going update your gps at the Garmin site.

For some reason, my Garmin 200w will not turn on at all. It doesn't matter if i have it plugged in to my car charger or on the battery, it won't turn on. Is there a quick fix, or is it time to buy...


Have you tried resetting your 200W?
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.
Let me know if this worked for you.

My garmin nuvi 255w keeps freezing up at loading maps screen...i have tried the hard reset but that doesn't work, when i push on the bottom right corner and start the gps, it doesn't even make it...


There is a hard reset button under the sticker at the bottom of the unit. It is located directly under the check mark on the sticker. Once you get it going fully charge the unit then go to the Garmin website and register and update your 255w. I will attach the link to the Garmin Site. Thanks for using FixYa
