My garmin nuvi 259lm went black while it was on. I checked the power cord with another garmin and that one turned on fine. Is there a reset button or something I can do to get it to come back on?

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi GPS Stopped working

Hey everyone I might have the solution:

Just got done "fixing" mine, turns out it didn't need any fixing whatsoever, just an update.

I had the same problem most of you seem to have:

Device: StreetPilot C340 worked great when I bought it and for months until one day, it just doesn't turn on...wtf right?

I was halfway done with tech support for an RMA request, (some of you might still need this) and that's when I noticed the usb input on the side of the device (like most of you I thought, why the hell does it even have one?) I plugged my universal camera usb cord into the pc, (At this point the device was on! and charging too!) and went to the garmin website, feel free to search but you will end up with this page:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27

pretty straight forward after this, follow the step by step depending on whether you have a mac or pc, download and run the "webupdater" mine was for windows, so I ran this all the way through and bam your good to go, you even have the option of updating the voice and language preference after the initial updates.

hope this helped everyone!

Hi, I have a garmin nuvi 1200 and I had it plugged into the car. my power does not go off when you turn off the car. I turned off the car, went into the store came out and the nuvi was dark and dead. no...


Hi Louise. Carefully pry the frame off from around the screen. It is thin and delicate so work carefully and use your fingernail. Once you have that frame off you will see a reset button. with the unit on, push the reset button. This may solve your problem, in fact it probably will. But, if it does not, go to Garmin.com and see how to mail it in for a repair. J.

My Garmin Nuvi 760 screen goes black after 8-9 seconds. I have replaced the fuse in the charge cord. Someone recommended that I remove the battery and turn the power button on for ten seconds to reset the...


Do not open the nuvi, the garmin site recommends the following method instead:

  1. Make sure you are sliding the power button all the way to the left.
    • If the unit does not respond, it may be that the battery is not charged.
  2. Connect the nuvi to a power source such as the USB cable and your computer.
  3. Reset the device, if the problem persists, by sliding the power button to the left and holding it in that position for 10 seconds
    • This resets the unit and prompts it to power on
If this fails to solve the problem, contact "SUPPORT" at www.garmin.com.

Please rate this reply if helpful - good luck.

My garmin 1300 went completly dead while on a route with the power cord attached. Unpluged tried again . Now its working. Is this normal?


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.

Try resetting your unit with the reset button on the bottom. If this doesn't work, slide the power button all the way to the left and hold it for 8 seconds.

The reset button on your nuvi will switch the device off. The reset button can be used to switch your device off if the screen is frozen and you are unable to switch the device off by the power button.

To reset a nuvi 2xx:

  1. Look at the bottom of the device
  2. Locate the small circle with a dot inside
  3. Press the circle to reset the device.
To reset a nuvi 3xx or 6xx:
  1. Lift the antenna
  2. Locate a button with the word Reset inside
  3. Press the button to reset the device.
The device will now switch off.

Make sure to charge it fully.

Garmin c550 GPS-Won't turn on at all.


push and Hold the power button down while you push reset, keep power button pressed til it boots again. If it does not, and it's in warranty ship it to garmin. If it's out of warranty, have someone open it up and remove the battery for a couple of minutes.
