Hi Michele,

I need more information. Does the screen lock-up? Does it lock-up each time you turn it on? How far will it boot? Do you get to the main screen?

Symptoms of a bad battery - A bad battery will not take a charge or will not last very long. A Nuvi with a bad battery may start to boot but will will die as your loading the maps and the screen will go blank. If you use an external charger/power source, this will bypass the battery and the unit should operate correctly, despite a bad battery. If the unit still has problems while using the charger, then it's not the battery.

Again, I need more information. Is this a Nuvi 660?

Screen froze


Have you tried resetting the unit?
There is a master reset button located under the front faceplate.
Try pressing it and holding for 2 seconds.
Hope this helps.

with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

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.
