First, be sure you are outside, in the open when making this diagnosis. Some cars have metallic defrosting layers, which blocks the GPS signal. If, when outside in clear view, you still have problems, try this...
Have you tried a hardware RESET? The button is hidden behind the front panel, which snaps off by a fingernail slot located directly under the GARMIN logo on the front panel.
* Use caution removing and reinstalling the front panel... it's somewhat fragile... wiggle it a little to get it off.
Press where it says "Press to Reset", hold for a second or two. Charge the unit with the car cord or USB cable, then try to turn it on again.
Once you can get the unit to (hopefully) turn ON, you should run all updates (there may be several!) using Garmin's Webupdater. (Connect to computer with USB cable first.)
Hope this helps!!

These are the instructions I got from Garmin as how to do the Master reset:
Here are the steps to backing up the favorites on your unit and then performing the master reset. First, you’ll want to plug your unit into your computer via USB cable. Once it’s plugged in, you’ll want to go to My Computer in your start menu or from your desktop and double-click on the Nuvi. At this point, you should see a few folders, but you’ll want to double-click on the Garmin folder. Here, you’ll want to look for the “GPX” folder and you’ll double-click on that. In this folder, you’ll want to drag and drop the file titled “Current.gpx” to your desktop to copy it. Now you are able to do the master reset.
To do that, you’ll want to start with the unit turned off and press and hold on the upper left hand corner of the touch screen. While holding the touch screen, power the unit on and continue to hold. You should get a message that asks if you really want to go into maintenance mode and you’ll want to select “Yes”. At this point, you’ll want to select “clear user data” and then select “Yes” when it asks you if you really want to clear user data. Now, the unit should restart and you’ll want to take it where it has a clear view of the sky and let it sit for up to 30 minutes to acquire satellites. If after 30 minutes it does not acquire satellites, you can go ahead and reply back to me.
Either way, once we have your unit back working again, you can follow the first set of steps again to get to the GPX folder and drag the “Current.gpx” folder from your desktop to that folder on your unit. This will replace your favorites.
