Broken/loose USB jack is the cause of the problem. Seen it many times. The connector either needs to be replaced or resoldered. More info can be found here:

SOURCE: My garmin nuvi 360 goes in simulated driving mode

if you recently plotted a course and used the simulation mode, it will stay there either till you deactivate it, or you arrive at the destination. go to the simulation mode and see if its in simulation, if so, stop it.

SOURCE: what is the OS of Garmin Nuvi 205 Sat Nav

No, Garmin units are set to proprietary mapping so you have to use Garmin or Garmin-compatible maps.

Hi! I bought Garmin 265W sat nav with full EU mapping. Are the EU maps preloaded or do I have to download them from the internet myself? There was nothing in the pack (apart of course charger, nav unit,...


The maps are preloaded. If you want to see what maps are on it press TOOLS (the spanner symbol)
Then press SETTINGS (or LOCALE if your model does not have SETTINGS)
Then press MAPS
Then press MAP INFO
The name of the map installed on your satnav should be shown there

Can i download free maps for my 2year old garminnuvi200 satnav and from which site


You can update mapping software on most sat nav units to take into account alterations to the road network. Either from your PC, in the case of portable sat navs; or via your phones GPRS connection, in the case of phone models. Always check the level of mapping that comes with your equipment in the first place. Is it up-to-date?
. Every couple of years Garmin will release a map update, which you can get on DVD or download - you've got to pay for it though!

Nuvi 250 will not turn on when charging.


There are two types of leads that you can buy.

The one supplied with the Garmin expects you to plug the GPS into the PC via the USB and if you use this to try and charge your Garmin in your car it will think it is connected to the PC and show the connection screen. it will charge the unit but you can't see the map.!!!

Make sure that you buy a lead specially for the Garmin for use in the car its the only type of SAT NAV that you will have this problem with.

Garmin 350 cannot charge and nav at the same time


Your battery is faulty. Did it come with an AC Charger? Ac chargers do a better job than the car Dc which really only manages to maintain a reasonable level of input. i suspect your internal batter is critical and either needs a thorough charge or replacement

Charging doesn't display map when charging


I learned that with the unit off - hold the on button down - don't release it. A PRE-BOOT MODE message will appear at the bottom and may flash. Continue holding down the start button. The first time I did it a series of dots came on the screen and I was instructed to touch each one. After that it started as normal. I plugged into a wall charger and but git the pc and nuvi icons again. I repeated the process - holding the on button on and let the PRE-BOOT MODE appear and kept holding but this time a different message came on and then the PRE-BOOT MODE appeared again. I let it go and took the unit to my car and plugged it into the Garmin car charger and it worked as it used to - normal. However, when I plugged it back in the house to the wall charged I got the pc and nuvi icon again. It appears that I am using the wrong wall charger as a previous writes stated. But the nuvi still worked in the car plugged into the nuvi charger. I hope this helps.

Don't Want to Buy the Updated Maps (nuvi 200W)


If the PC icon comes up while using the car charger, then there is a problem with your charger or mini-USB port on your Nuvi. Many after market chargers are not wired the same, causing the PC icon to show up on the screen. In this mode, your Nuvi will not charge nor can you use your Nuvi for navigation.

You can use your Nuvi with old maps. No one says you have to update. You'll just get an occasional reminder that your maps are outdated.

Charging while driving(using the cigar plug)


I too just got mine from Santa... it's designed to operate while plugged into the lighter. It also charges the Li ion battery. If the Garmin screen comes on while you are using it I would suspect an error or what ever. (you DID move the little switch on the top left corner to unlock didn't you?) Just call their number 800 800-1020 and ask them. They were most helpful and were there well after the hours posted in the instruction book.
