Try leaving it on for a few days on cig lighter with unit ON. gps III plus has a rechargeable valadium battery soldered to the board on the inside of the unit to hold memory of your waypoints.You can solder a new one in for about 5 buks-it may need a new one but try charging it first

Have a garmin gps3 that will not power up - batteries checked OK. gps hasn't been used for a couple of years. replaced batteries with new - no go


IF it stil won't pwer up with the dc plug, I suspect the internal battery. Lots of info online on replacement, you can CAREFULLY snip one lead as a a diagnostic test to take it out of the circuit. Good Luck!

How to reset the Garmin streetpilot III deluxe


DO NOT DO THE FOLLOWING unless you know why you are doing it. If you press and hold ROUTE when the unit is powered up, you do a master reset. This will clear all data and user variables. Unlike previous Garmin GPS receivers, this will NOT clear the temp compensation curves and non user data.


If the MENU key is pressed and held when the unit is turned ON, an undocumented test screen is activated which incidentally measures battery voltage, temperature and a few other things. Pressing QUIT (several times) from the test screen gives you a set of display test screens.

Broken screen on Garmin GPS III


A couple of ideas, craigslist, ebay, or a Garmin Dealer. They can actually purchase discontinued GPS for a considerably lower price.

Good Luck!

Garmin V


I think I may have found the solution.

A reply for a post on another site:

I visited the Garmin Corp office to seek help with that problem. If the shut down occurs right after satellite acquisition and the screen may show just a narrow black line going across it, it is likely due to some program changes the sattelite folks did without telling the software programmers. Garmin web site has a free download fix for the problem. Another option is to go into your settings and turn off the WAAS. Hope this helps. Go to the web site, check downloads, find your model gps and there you go. Good luck.

I disabled WAAS and so far so good.

I couldn't find the fix on the Garmin site.

HTH.
