My garmin 1300 says no detail maps found gps wont work with out it


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

  2. Locate the small circle with a dot inside
  3. Press the circle to reset the device.
To reset a nuvi 3xx or 6xx:

  2. Locate a button with the word Reset inside

Look near the SN # and press the reset button.

or

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 frozen


It appears that the touch screen isn't working any more. If it is still under warranty then request a RMA from Garmin and send it back.
