    Did you do this with the power on?

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.

SOURCE: I have a Garmin Nuvi 200 and cannot load 2010 update

Install the SD Card. When you select your maps and transfer them to the device, make sure the Nuvi is plugged into the USB. When you are on the screen to "Find Device", select the dropdown menu and you should see the drive letter referencing your SD card. Select that and you should be all set.

SOURCE: my garmin nuvi 650 will not go to next screen it

have you tried the master reset?

plug it in to the usb port on your computer for a few hours.if that fails,then try the master reset.

note: that the master reset will erase all your saved data

with the unit off,and unplugged, try pressing and holding your finger on the low right corner of the screen and slide the power switch to the on position until you see the message "confirm if you really want to delete all user data?" hit yes and let it restart. then it will set up the nuvi again, so follow the prompts.

if that fails, hook up the nuvi to the web updater and get the latest update.

download the updater HERE

(actually i would do this either way)

SOURCE: The screen on my Garmin Street Pilot C340 is frozen

I read the manual. There is a reset button underneath the plastic cover surrounding the screen (pry off w/ your thumb) -- push the reset if the power can't be turned off otherwise.

Garmin froze with a "Map Update Notice" the screen


The unit isn't frozen. If you tap the power button you will hear it beep and change screens. What has happened is your touchscreen has failed. This is a common problem. Your touchscreen needs replaced. If you want some troubleshooting info, please see this link. There is just too much info to retype here:

Garmin nuvi 660 froze up.


This is not caused by an update. Please check your unit's serial # to see if it starts with a "12P", "14V" or "143". If so, these units have a specific touchscreen that can fail even without physical damage to the glass or screen. The only way to resolve it is to replace the touchscreen & glass. You will not lose any of your data. The unit is not frozen and you can verify it by quickly pressing the on/off button. If you hear a beep, it's not locked up. You touchscreen has failed and won't accept any input. Please see this link:

Only half of sreen lights up and is frozen. Do all 350 have a memory card? When my husband brought it in from his last trip, there appears to be no memory card in it. Could this be my problem with only...


Stock Nuvi's from the factory do not include a memory card (SD card). You do not need a memory card to operate the Nuvi. The memory card is only needed if you want to add more storage space for music or pictures or if you want to add additional maps. It has nothing to do with the LCD display. Having worked on these units for quite sometime, anytime you have 1/2 of the screen missing, it tells me that your LCD display is defective.

Garmin nuvi 660 frozen


I did connect it to the computer via my USB cord - a Garmin menu came up and after opening a couple of the choices the Garmin was workable again. I don't really know why. But all is good here.
