Garmin nuvi 705 won't power up

This 2-mo. old device gave me a message that the info. is older than a year and needs an update; I said ok. After attempting to enter destination address several times and only getting the searching for satellite even though the satellite signal was medium strong, I shut it off. The battery was low so I plugged in into my car, but it wouldn't turn back on so I put it in the wall charger at home all night and still won't go back on. What is the matter?

Probably a bad piece in the hardware (power supply). these come with a 1 year warrenty. I would contact garmin and have them take a look (they will replace it most likely)

Black screen but sound and touch screen beeps seem to be ok.


Most likely a defective LCD display. If the unit was dropped, the LCD ribbon cable might have pulled slightly out of the connector on the PCB board.

Garmin nuvi 1390t won't read or recognize microsd


The 1390t works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work in older devices.
You need to go with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

After downloading update on garmin site, my nuvi still says"more than one year old need to update". My Dashboard on garmin site say updated successful??


What did you update? The message you are getting refers to the maps. If you have not updated the maps in more than a year, you will continue to get that message. If you update the firmware, voices or anything else, it will NOT stop the message.

Hi,

I would suggest you reset the unit,if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your garmin nuvi, I think its out of date and needs to be updated. Follow the procedures below on how to update your garmin nuvi:

1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB.
2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: "http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 "
3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults).
4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.

Also, in case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Take care.

Nuvi 215 does not boot. As soon as the Garmin logo appears it reboots itself and continues in an indefinite loop


FIRST, be certain you have a fully charged battery.
Then try doing a master reset:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} How to perform a master reset on your nuvi 200, 205, 465, 500, 600, 700, 705 or 1000 series device?
To perform a Master Reset
Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.
  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers ON
    • You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes
The device will automatically reset. Follow the on screen prompts then place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.

I recently (July)purchased the lifetime update option for my Nuvi 350 and with assistance from Garmin was able to update my unit. My unit has displayed a notice twice since the update that the maps are...


Please look to see what map year that you have on your unit. At the main menu, press the "wrench" symbol, then the map icon and then "map info". The map should be 2010.... either 2010.10 or 2010.20...etc. If it's anything older, like 2009 or 2008, your unit was not updated.

If you have 2010 as the map year, you are fine. Also remember to ugrade your firmware too...

Nuvi 265t: no sound or bluetooth after update


Your last upgrade fail.
Load V5.00, wich install the bluetooth driver.
http://www.garmin.com/software/nuvi2x5_regionfileonly__500.gcd
Load this one to your nuvi F:\GARMIN\ and rename to GUPDATE.GCD.
After disconnect your nuvi from PC and downgrade firmware test bluetooth and sound. Then retry to update (Manual as above __530, WebUpdater or Garmin-Website).
Good Luck
