How do I turn on my Garmin Nuvi?


Go to Garmin and download and install Garmin Express, Plug your GPS into your PC. The GPS should power on and Garmin Express should identify it and tell you of any updates. If the GPS does not power on (it should go into usb mode), then contact Garmin for warranty work. You can also check the power adapter in your vehicle. If the red light does not come on, the adapter either has a blown fuse or went bad, causing your GPS battery to be discharged. It is quite possible that your battery is discharged. You might leave it plugged into your PC overnight if the battery is dead.

Garmin 255W will not power on. The screen will flash the Garmin product screen and beep, but will never turn on. Its just over a year old. Any ideas?


I don't have this model, but have you tried charging the battery up before you attempt to switch it on? My sat nav will not switch on if the battery has died, just wondered if yours is the same. When mine was new the first thing I had to do was charge the battery (similar to a new mobile phone). This is worth a try.

Garmin Nuvi 1250 has a dim screen when plugged into a power source. It's ok when on battery.


I would venture a guess that the cable you are using in the vehicle is not a genuine Garmin cable. The units are very sensitive to voltage.

Anything under approximately 10 volts - the Garmin assumes it is plugged into a USB port (Active Cradle)... not a vehicle... and it dims for quicker charging.

Switch to a Garmin OEM cable.
