Try this .
Go on the garmin web site and find the map update for your unit , It should be listed and with a unit upgrade on there too. down load it and after you get that going plug in your unit into the computer and when it gets done click on the down load to your unit by follwing the instruction .
When you get done doing this turn off the gps unit and turn it back on.
I hopw this will do the trick for you.

What reason could there be for failure of this device. It took us way past our destination and seemed to lose its way. Does it need updating. It has been unused for a long period

Hi David, Even though i haven't used mine for a while I have one with a life time of maps meaning some you have to pay to update and some you update free... I update mine every now and then and if you don't update then then they can get you lost.......CHEERS..

2.) Make sure you are in a clear view area to sky to receive sattelite,

3.) Go to Tools....Settings.... on the gps simulator make sure it is On

Can't get a satilite on my Garmin nuvi 1300

A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes, 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.

Gps is not updated with new places cant get to final destination

You need to get your device updated - or - settle for a place 'near by' your destination.

When we updated our GPS, the price was near $100.00. You may want to sell your device (e-bar or craigs list) and just get a new device.
