Only screen is the garmin logo with the battery charge icon. When power button is pressed another icon appears for 20s: a picture of the garmin unit linked to a charger then back to the first screen.


Don't know if this will help but it might be worth trying, especially if you just did a software update. I have a 520 and it gets frequent software updates. After an update it ends up just showing the Garmin screen and seems to be bricked because nothing else works - even the off button doesn't work. The solution is to just let it sit showing the Garmin screen for five or ten minutes so it can process and load the new software which seems to take a long time. It eventually opens onto the main screen.

Recently bought a Garmin 205 and was told that there is a free update I am unable to do this please can you help


There are two types of updates for Garmin GPS units; firmware and maps. "Firmware" updates are always free and can performed by downloading the webupdater program from:

http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

The site above provides a Webupdater download link and complete, easy to follow instructions. Connect the GPS to your computer & run the Webupdater program from time to time to make sure you have the latest firmware running in you GPS at all times.

Map updates however, usually require a fee be paid to access. If you purchase a GPS within a certain period of time from when a new map set is released, you'll often be allowed a "one time" free update. After that, you'll have to purchase map sets one at a time (at intervals of your choosing) or, purchase a "lifetime" map set subscription. Maps are updated up to 4 times a year, and a subscription allows downloading up to 4 map sets a year. The subscription is slightly more costly than a one time purchase, and for most people, is a much more cost effective method.

Contact Garmin Support first to find out more about map set availability and compatible maps for your GPS, below:

I want to update my Garmin Streetpilot c340


Before you begin, you must have a compatible map set CD / DVD or, a preloaded map set on memory card by Garmin. Many retailers sell these map sets, but you may end up with an older or non-compatible set instead. There are options for *lifetime* downloadable map set updates directly from Garmin for less than $150. These will allow downloading updates (maps will be upgraded up to 4x per year according to Garmin). Speak with a Garmin Customer Service rep to help decide which would be the best update path for you.

My GPS cannot detect the satellite signal.


Garmin says:

If your GPSMAP 60CSx will not acquire a satellite signal when outside with a clear view of the sky, please try the following:
  1. Click here http://garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
  2. Follow the onscreen instructions to install and update your unit
  3. Once updated allow for the device to set free from obstructions for 20 minutes to acquire satellites
If this does not work then we suggest doing a master reset with your device - Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your device to the default factory settings. To perform the master reset please do the following:

  1. Turn the device OFF
  2. Press and hold Quit + Menu + Out + Power
  3. The device screen will then flash and will power on
  4. Leave the device turned ON with a clear view of the sky without moving it for approximately 30 minutes so that it may acquire satellites

If still unable to acquire satellites, contact Garmin Customer Support via one of the methods below:

Garmin Nuvi 680 Touch Screen "touch" works intermittently


Recalibration has nothing to do with repairing this problem. If the touchscreen is non-responsive, how are you going to recalibrate it when it doesn't recognize the key presses?

The problem is caused by a defective touchscreen. SHARP substitued a different touchscreen into the 6xx series that fails even when the glass isn't damaged. The problem is caused by a defect in the manufacturing process where the touchscreen connections becomes detached from the tail that plugs into the board.

The touchscreen connections between the screen and the tail are made from conductive ink that can fracture, most likely caused when pressing on the screen over time.

These defective screens can be identified by a white tail cap at the end of the tail, whereas the original touchscreens have a maroon tail cap. The original touchscreens will only fail if the glass has been broken.

I only use the original touchscreens for all of my repairs.

NAV U53 GPS - MESSAGE 'SERVICE' ON A BLUE SCREEN AND A SPANNER


This is a return to Base requirement as there is no owner solution to this problem. This is the tricky garmin group doing a "Microsoft" to get more $$ from their users.
Perhaps consider an Altina,next time they have no sneaky money grabbing tricks to make money out of you at every turn. Garmin were good once but they have joined the throw away mantality group.
You can check out an altina at Marbella australia the main service centre and distributor

Screen goes blank except a thin line


There is a firmware upgrade from Garmin that appears to address this problem for units still running Version 3.2 or earlier. If your problem only occurs when WAAS is enabled, you might try upgrading. To find what firmware version you have, from the main menu: Setup, System, then select the (options) icon on the top row, to the left of the 'X'.

Blank Screen on Garmin E-Trex Vista


Yes, this problem has been caused by the launch of a new satellite earlier this year. As soon as your unit gets a fix from the new satellite, it causes this problem. Simple immediate fix: disable WAAS in the setup. Permanent fix: go to Garmin website and update your unit's software and it will fix this temporary problem. Enjoy your GPS and don't forget to come back and tell us if this fixed your problem.

GPS V plus. Screen goes blank except for one thin horizontal line. Unit becomes unresponsive. Have to pull the batteries. After that the unit restarts and resumes working as if nothing had happened.


According to Garmin Tech:
01) Power unit ON
02) Press ENTER until you get past all the warning screens
03) Press MENU twice
04) Go to SETUP
05) Under the SYSTEM tab, goto lower right box labeled WAAS
06) Disable the WAAS

Hope this helps!!!
