Hey bud,

You just contradicted yourself!

If you have so much knowledge and education, why don't you figure it out for yourself? REALLY!

The dude was trying to help you from screwing it up further and costing you more $$ or totally bricking the thing.

I guess you weren't that "smart" cause you broke it. LOL @ u!

SOURCE: Hi, i need to do a "Hard reset" in my Garmin nuvi 1490

power the unit on and immediatly place your finger in one of the corners and hold it there. I believe it is the top right but if it doesnt work the first time try a different corner. This will reset the entire device and erase all settings.

Resoldered the UPS port. Now cannot reattach the ribbon cable. Any suggestions?


Resoldering is OK, but reinforcing the connector with a bonding material to prevent the connector from moving is also required.

As for the LCD ribbon cable, there is a horizontal lock down latch, about an inch long. that locked the ribbon to the board. If that latch is cracked, broken or missing, it is game over for the GPS. Yes, the latches can be replaced but it is very tedious.

If the latch is ok, all you need to do is flip the latch up. Slide the ribbon cable into the mating connector, with the gold contacts face down. Slide the ribbon in as far as it will go and using two fingers spaced at either end of the latch, flip the latch down, locking it into place. It will grab the ribbon and make the connection to the board.

Does your Garmin Nuvi 1490 Freeze at Loading Maps?
Does it lock up or stop working?

This tip will describe how to perform a hard reset of the device, and how to backup your 'Favorites' in case the hard reset erases them. The next step in fixing your Nuvi when it doesn't start properly is to update its system software using Garmin WebUpdater.

A hard reset (or Clear All User Data) has been known to resolve unit quirks and strange behavior. It's generally recommended to perform it after a firmware update but is not required by any means. However, if you're seeing quirks and strange behavior with your unit after the firmware update, it is a good idea to do a hard reset of the unit.

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
  3. Install the battery.
  4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.
  6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite almanac data.


You have now performed a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 1490 series GPS unit.

I hope that helps.
