Hi,

You Could try pressing the OK button and the PAGE button, together and then hold power button until it reboots and then say yes to erase all user data

This will erase all data stored on the device,

It will need re-registering and re-updating

Here register

Here update

I hope this helps
Regards.

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:

The screen on my Garmin Street Pilot C340 is frozen


I read the manual. There is a reset button underneath the plastic cover surrounding the screen (pry off w/ your thumb) -- push the reset if the power can't be turned off otherwise.

As I was driving and using my garmin, changing from my route to "detour" and back the screen froze (80 minutes ago). Since I tried to turn off (using power switch) and I also unplugged. Garmin remains in...


Try resetting the unit. Remove the faceplate (there is an indentation at the top) and press the Reset button on the right side of the unit. If this does not help, there is a Master Reset, but it WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. If you have to do this, press and hold the bottom right of the screen and press the power button until the unit resets.

My Garmin Nuvi is frozen with a white screen, all I did was take out the memory card and it froze. What can I do?


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.

Screen froze up


"If your Quest locks up....on rare occasions, your Quest may freeze or lock up. In this case, reset the Quest by pressing the unit's Power key and the IN key at the same time. This will turn off your Quest. The unit will operate normally when you turn it on again."

Garmin Quest is out of whack


Hello, I currently own a Garmin quest myself, and some time ago I had some strange problems myself, I am a electronics technician, and I do have a work around for you. I will explain the problems and a cure for you to try, none of the work arounds depend on any parts to be removed.

1. NO RECEIVING SATELLITE TELEMETRY. I beleieve this could be due to a number of reasons, but more so at sometime corrupted telemetry was the problem to fix this,
a turn GPS on when booted (initialised)
b. depress menu
select settings
select Time Setup
when in Time Setup depress MENU
Select SET DATE
Depress OK button
Depress OK button again on the numberic keypad that appears on the screen (DONE)
what this seems to do is resets the internal date/time clock and the unit starts to work again.
the Second workaround is this but takes hours to perform.

Simply turn the Guest on and allow the battery to fully discharge, usually this works to TOTALLY flush the Memory again, but on my unit I have to setup all the maps again, this is easy to perform, but just takes time. I hope this helps you.

Rong turns


Hello, I also own a Garmin Quest GPS and I live in Australia, Invariably my quest sends me in the wrong directions, and also in the middle of a highway get a message do a U TURN. I only believe this error resides in the MAPSOURCE Software. and until GARMIN decides to fix the problem there is NO solution for the USER to FIX. I also do NOT believe any more the specification that garnin states with the quest GPS, I believe it can ONLY be bad Telemetry downloaded from the satellites or you have TOO MANY waypoints stored in your GPS. The Solutions I am about to give you are my way of fixing the GPS until the problem reoccures. I suggest you do OPTION 2.

none of the work arounds depend on any parts to be removed.

1. NO RECEIVING SATELLITE TELEMETRY. I beleieve this could be due to a number of reasons, but more so at sometime corrupted telemetry was the problem to fix this,

the Second workaround is this but takes hours to perform.

OPTION 2 Before you do this DO YOU KNOW HOW to RELOAD your MAPSOURCE MAPS.

Simply turn the Guest on and allow the battery to fully discharge, this is also a good practice to cycle the battery. usually this works to TOTALLY flush the Memory again, but on my unit I have to setup all the maps again, this is easy to perform, but just takes time. I hope this helps you.
