    That is because its in data mode. Whenever you connect it to your PC, it goes into data mode. Data mode is the mode where you can transfer pictures & music to your GPS from your PC.



    You can also update the firmare as well. Data mode is not the normal operating mode. If you remove the plug from the GPS, it should go back to GPS mode. However, ALWAYS make sure you SAFELY REMOVE the device in windows BEFORE removing the plug!!! Otherwise you could risk damaging the system operating files!

When you connect the 750 to a computer it goes into data mode and the screen shows only the connected to PC icon. Let it charge for a few hours and then disconnect it from your computer and it will come up in Navigation mode,

No map info on nuvi 205w


Plug your nuvi into your PC. Go to the Garmin.com website and log into your account to see your map information. You can go to your account and see the map downloads and reinstall it from there. Or you can download their software "Garmin Express" on your PC. Run the software while your Garmin is plugged into your PC and it will check for any updates for you.

My computer windows XP can't see/recognize my garmin nuvi 1250. I just bought it .The garmin was made in Taiwan. I have intention to upgrade the map.. coz it is old map (2010).but I cannot register...


Assuming the Garmin communicator plug-in has been installed in the Internet Browser and registered at Garmin.com with a user account - the Garmin goes into (PC) communication mode when its connected to the USB port of a PC.

If that doesn't happen - i'd suspect the USB cable first.

Assuming the cable is ok - including the USB port of the PC - the Garmin must go into (PC) communication mode. If not the Garmin USB jack could be defective.

Garmin 1300 stuck on maps loading frozen I have a GARMIN nuvi 1300, running off a car cigarette lighter type charger, it was working fine for weeks, I got in the car, started it up and the nuvi is STUCK on...


I had the same problem with a 1300 unit and a car charger. After holding power button for 10 seconds it would begin to start, but get stuck while saying "Loading Maps." and then it would shut off again.
I fixed it by plugging the unit into a computer USB port. It then did it's PC connection startup as usual, which leaves a connection icon on the screen. I gave it a minute and then unplugged it from the PC. It then restarted and booted up properly.
Hope this helps.

Garmin nuvi 255w trying to register and update maps. Got the Firefox addon-loaded successfully, restarted firefox; plugged in usb cable to pc and GPS; can not find my device. Tried XP sp3 desktop and vista...


The problem was following the Garmin instructions too closely. What I found via a GPS forum was that some USB cables can be finicky and trying different USB cables may solve the problem. In my case I found I had to turn the nuvi 255W on normally during registration; then connect the USB cable to device and PC. Then the registration and download worked.
The documentation is not clear on this.

Found I had the latest map; but did upgrade my firmware from 5.90 to 6.10.

Turn my gps on and just says garmin with a pc logo? Turned it on and off and still same thing.


garmin with a PC logo indicates that you have hooked the unit through USB to a PC. It also appears if you try to charge it with AC Chrager. If the cable is not connected and still you are getting this logo, it is malfunctioning. have it serviced by Garmin.

Error message


Install the Garmin City Navigator Cd to your pc and then connect ur garmin to ur pc with the USB cable.
You might have to unlock the maps with information provided with ur garmin like ur unit ID and ur unlock code.
Another possiblity is that ur memory card is gotten corrupted so try installing it on a different micro sd card.
Let us know if u have any luck.
