SOURCE: Garmin NUVI 660 - can not locate satellite

These are the instructions I got from Garmin as how to do the Master reset:

Here are the steps to backing up the favorites on your unit and then performing the master reset. First, you’ll want to plug your unit into your computer via USB cable. Once it’s plugged in, you’ll want to go to My Computer in your start menu or from your desktop and double-click on the Nuvi. At this point, you should see a few folders, but you’ll want to double-click on the Garmin folder. Here, you’ll want to look for the “GPX” folder and you’ll double-click on that. In this folder, you’ll want to drag and drop the file titled “Current.gpx” to your desktop to copy it. Now you are able to do the master reset.

To do that, you’ll want to start with the unit turned off and press and hold on the upper left hand corner of the touch screen. While holding the touch screen, power the unit on and continue to hold. You should get a message that asks if you really want to go into maintenance mode and you’ll want to select “Yes”. At this point, you’ll want to select “clear user data” and then select “Yes” when it asks you if you really want to clear user data. Now, the unit should restart and you’ll want to take it where it has a clear view of the sky and let it sit for up to 30 minutes to acquire satellites. If after 30 minutes it does not acquire satellites, you can go ahead and reply back to me.

Either way, once we have your unit back working again, you can follow the first set of steps again to get to the GPX folder and drag the “Current.gpx” folder from your desktop to that folder on your unit. This will replace your favorites.

SOURCE: garmin nuvi 360 wont unlock maps

Master reset is after you turn on the GPS put a finger on the left lower corner rightaway and then keep the finger there, wait until it shows up the "Do you really want to start up in maintainance mode"

You are not able to use others nuvi's map on your nuvi 360, as each map must match with the GPS unit ID, to find out your GPS's unit ID, go to "Setting" tab on "System", tab on " About"

SOURCE: my garmin nuvi 1350 powers down while travelling i

ALL GPS require charging via the AC charger or USB supplied, If you have not done this then the battery will lose power quickly when connected to 12v car outlet. This source is a maintenance charge, not the main charger. Therefore it will deplete and try to shut down, despite being connected. Holding the power button on to force it is a dangerous driving practice and will eventually damage the unit( not so bad as getting you and any passengers damaged by this practice)

Charge your unit fully before you use it, if that is daily then disconnect it and put it on the AC or USB to raise the charging level to full so it's ready to go for the next day.

If it fails to charge fully, then your actions have damaged the battery and it will need to be replaced.

It is a good idea to perform a hard reset on your Garmin Nuvi after updating the software.

The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
  3. Install the battery.
  4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?"prompt appears.
  6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

Nuvi will not turn on


What model Garmin Nuvi ???....
On occasion, your Garmin GPS may experience technical malfunctions, including failing to power up.
When this happens, perform a manual hard reset of the unit.
A soft reset entails holding the power button until the unit powers down, and then pressing the it again to power the device back up.
However, when the unit won't turn on, a soft reset won't work. In this case, a hard reset is the only way to get the device up and running again.

Unplug power and USB cables to disconnect all sources of power to the unit.
Place your thumbnail into the groove located below the Garmin logo on the face of the unit.

Pry the faceplate off using gentle pressure.
Press the reset button and hold for approximately 3 seconds.
When the device is facing you, the reset button is located in the middle of the right-hand side of the front of the device.

Snap the faceplate back into place.
Press the power button.
Your GPS should now turn back on.

Garmin Nuvi With No Power
A Garmin Nuvi is a type of GPS device that can help you find your way around when traveling by motor vehicle.
You can mount the Garmin Nuvi inside the windshield of your vehicle and allow it to acquire the satellite signal.
This tells the device where you're located.
After that, you can find simple directions to get to a new location by entering the address into your Garmin Nuvi.
If you find that your Garmin Nuvi has limited or no power, you will need to do some troubleshooting to get it to work.

Change the fuse within your unit's power cable.
If your Garmin Nuvi has no power, the fuse may be out, meaning the device cannot be charged.
Plug your Garmin Nuvi into the power supply of your vehicle and turn the vehicle on.
The device cannot charge and get power unless the vehicle is running.


Allow the Garmin Nuvi to charge fully.
You might be unplugging it from the power source too soon, which could cause the device to have little or no power.

Regulate the temperature of your Garmin Nuvi.
It may not function properly if the temperature is too cold, below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, or too hot, above 113 degrees Fahrenheit.

My Garmin 1450 locks up and will not compute a route, or show maps. It is about 3 weeks old and this it the first trip for it.


I experienced the same issue with a Garmin Dezl 560 - which is based on the Nuvi. After experimentation with various very long routes the Garmin started with sudden restarts, lockups and other weird behavior. It became unusable - which seemed like a programming error to me.

After a Master Reset - clearing all user data (POIs / Routes / Tracks) the Garmin acted normal again.

A master reset is triggered by holding the right bottom corner of the screen for at least 20 seconds while pressing the power button once. A question appears after some time to clear all user data.

Recently I've upgraded to a latest software version through MyGarmin.com - haven't seen this sudden lock-up / restart issue since.

Use the USB cord that came with your Garmin. Plug it into the side of the Garmin and the other end into the USB port on your computer. Go to www.garmin.com. Look for downloads of your NUVI 200. Download the latest update and see if that solves the problem.

Garmin Nuvi stopped working and won't restart


Got a Garmin Nuvi 260. Same problem. I read the booklet. There's a reset button on the bottom. Disconnect from power. Push the reset button. Connect back to power. Now it works. The reset button is tiny and looks more like just text on the bottom sticker than it does a button. But push it anyway.
