What you would do is, under where the model code sticker is under is the reset button. remove the sticker and hold down the reset button for 10 seconds at the same time hold the power button towards the left.

Garmin gps doesn't work when charging with cigarette charger. Instead of the GPS to Navigate it rather shows like there's a data transfer.


Hello,

The proper vehicle power cables for the Garmin nuvi 260 are part numbers 010-10723-06 or 010-11478-03.
The use of improper cables will cause the nuvi to go into mass storage.

I dropped my Garming Nuvi 260 this past weekend and when I turn it on it goes to a screen saying Updating GPS Firmware 1% then jumps to Updating GPS Firmware Complete. It keeps popping up with these...


Inspect the bottom of your Nuvi 260. According to the owner's manual, some models have a small "Reset" button on the bottom. If yours does, you'll use this to reset the Nuvi 260.Press and hold the "Reset" button for several seconds, until the Nuvi powers off and powers back on. Next try
to slide the power switch on top all the way to the left to reset your Nuvi if it does not have a "Reset" button. Performing this action resets the system.
Next try a hard reset.
Slide the power switch to "Off."
Press your finger against the screen in the lower-right corner. Hold your finger in this position.
Slide the power switch to "On" to turn the Nuvi on. Continue holding your finger on the screen until the pop-up window appears. When it does, press "Yes" to reset your Nuvi to its factory settings.

Hope this works but dropping may have caused internal damage. If this does not work you may have to send it back to Garmin for service. I will attach a link for Garmin. Thanks for using FixYa.

How long does the garmin nuvi 260 hold a charge


First, get a new charge for your car. You're screwed without it.
A full charge should last for 2 hours if batteries an decent.
It does not have to be plugged in and you could turn on while on your trip.
Lisa, your 260 is a great unit. Get the new adaptor.
By the way you can find a extender for your current adaptor at Radio Shack that work around that funky ashtray.
Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

Garmin nuvi 260


How old is the unit? The battery could have gone bad and needs replaced. The Nuvi's are not designed to have the battery replaced by the user but it can be done. The batteries are sold on Ebay.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.
