Could be a battery problem not having enough charge to get past the Garmin screen you might need to replace the battery or it might need to be reset.

Not knowing which model of Garmin it is makes it hard to provide a correct solution. ?

If your Garmin Nuvi 1300 is freezing up or not working correctly, a soft reset can be performed. A soft reset unfreezes the unit and brings you back to the main menu. If a soft reset does not solve the problem, or if you are selling your unit and wish to erase all of your saved information, a hard reset can be done. A hard reset restores the original factory settings to the unit. Once the information is deleted, it can not be restored. Turn on the Garmin Nuvi 1300. Press and hold down the "Power" button. Release the button when the main menu is displayed. The unit is now ready to be used. b> Hard Reset b> Turn the Garmin Nuvi 1300 off. Press your finger against the bottom-right corner of the Garmin display screen. Leave your finger in place as you power the unit on. Release your finger when the display screen asks, "Do you want to erase all user data?" Use your finger to tap "Yes." The unit will begin to reboot. Do not use the unit until the main menu is displayed. The reset process should take about 45 seconds. Hope this helps.

You have to pry off the silver-colored faceplate from the unit and you will find a reset button on the right side of the screen. Push this and everything will back to normal.

Garmin froze with a "Map Update Notice" the screen


The unit isn't frozen. If you tap the power button you will hear it beep and change screens. What has happened is your touchscreen has failed. This is a common problem. Your touchscreen needs replaced. If you want some troubleshooting info, please see this link. There is just too much info to retype here:

Screen froze and it won't turn off


Hmmm. tricky. It'll eventually run flat but connect it to the computer and use Garmin WebUpdater (free download from Garmin) to check the software version - it may reinstall the software.

Have you tried a hard reset? Take off the silver trim ring around the screen by hooking a fingernail under it above the screen and lifting it off. There's a reset button at the side of the screen. Press that for a few seconds and it should re-boot the unit.

FROZEN SCREEN


By David707,
Since posting ma last re: Screen Freezing on external charge; I did manage to get the system back to some normality by pressing the Reset button located underneath the GPS Antenna flap. However this is likely to delete personally stored data on the system.
I should also state that the same problem occurs when I connect the 610 t my PC via the USB connection (another way to externally charge the battery).
A more satisfactory answer required though.
