Sounds like a major software failure. . .

Hold a finger on the upper right corner of the screen while powering up the unit. This should do a master reset.

My Gamin Nuvi can't unlock maps

Use a Garmin 1450

The Garmin Nuvi 1450 can be used while driving or walking.

While driving, use the Nuvi 1450 to create a route to your destination and get step-by-step directions, to hear the names of upcoming streets, to tell you when to change lanes and to find out the speed limits on unfamiliar streets.

As a pedestrian, you can have the Nuvi 1450 create a route for you that uses a mixture of walking and public transportation, such as the subway or bus system, if you have purchased cityXplorer maps for that area.

Tap "Where to?" to set up a route. The "Where to?" icon is a large magnifying glass.

Tap "Addresses." The available categories are address, points of interest, go home, recently found, favorites and intersections.

Input the name of the state or county, if it is out of town.

Then tap "Spell city." Spell out the name of the city using the pop up keyboard.

Press "Done."

Enter the address number and press "Done."

Then enter the street name and press "Done."

The "Go" screen opens automatically.

Tap the green "Go" button. The Nuvi 1450 will now calculate a route to the address.

Follow the voice prompts and map highlight to your destination.

Navigate Using Coordinates

Tap "Where to?" and then tap "Coordinates."

Tap the coordinate you want to adjust/input a new coordinate.

Tap "Format" to choose the right coordinate format for the map you are using.

Enter the coordinates. Tap "Next."

Tap the green "Go" button to calculate a route.

Use the Map Page

Navigate to your destination by following the voice prompts, highlighted route on the map and directions located at the top of the map screen.
Tap the "turn" icon located in the upper left corner of the screen to see the next turn. It may have a turning or straight arrow and the number of miles until the turn. Tap the bar across the top with the next direction listed on it to see a list of all directions.

Tap the plus or minus signs on the right side of the screen to zoom in or out.

Press the spinning arrow in the lower left corner of the screen to return to the main menu.

Tap the "car" icon traveling along the highlighted route to enter the "Where Am I?" screen and get your exact location, coordinates and nearby emergency services.

Hope this helps

Can you in put a pre selected route in to the Garmin Nuvi 1310 GPS so that i can have the route in turn by turn before i leave home

Sure and your doing the correct thing good thinking, always check the route before you go there are way to many ways to get there....

When you input the destination let it calculate then press the green bar on top where it says which way to turn.... it will then let you see which way its traveling, you can arrow down turn by turn or on bottom of screen press show map and give you the route highlighted with a green flag and checkered flag

I own a Garmin Nuvi 1370t, and I have been using it for about 6 months. It has maps for both USA and Europe. About 3 days ago it stopped working properly. It accepts the addresses, but does not calculate...

Call Garmin. I had exact problem and nothing I did worked. They had me load new drivers, software and remove the settings on my Garmin. After about 50 minutes of different things, it now works and can locate satellites and routes.

Nuvi 255w stuck on Calculating 99% when a new destination is picked. Switched off and back on , still no luck. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Disabling the avoidances resolve this issue. To remove Avoidances - Tools -> Settings ->Navigation -> Avoidances -> Enabled and uncheck all.

Wont calculat route

sat nav needs a valid gps signal to start calculating route, even if it found entered address. Address is searched on built-in map, not live gps position. That means, sat nav may have problem with gps signal. Try to reset device to its factory settings first. hope this helps

Nuvi routes to destination are too long

Perhaps it is set to Pedestrian Mode instead of Automobile Mode.  This can be changed in the settings.
