"goes dead in two minutes. recent thing. downloaded update. same in 5 mins."

Try charging the battery. Does it die when connected to the AC charger or computer?
Try reloading the update.

When I turn my Garmin 550 on it says loading maps, then goes to the select a local: It's frozen their on United States i push OK and nothing happens can not change the Locale it's frozen I tried...

Hi tkfranks331,

Press the power key and hold it if the screen of your Zumo is frozen. Keep holding the power key while pressing the key that has a plus symbol ("+") on it. This will reset your device and unfreeze the screen. You can also try calibrating the screen by pressing the power key for one full minute.

If this does not work, please follow these steps.

1. Update the internal disk software. Download and install WebUpdater on the computer. Please visit this link to download the WebUpdater.

2. Open WebUpdater on the computer.

3. Connect the Zumo 550 to the computer with its USB cable.

4. WebUpdater will automatically search for updates.

5. Follow the prompts to download any pertinent updates for the Zumo 550.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Sometimes the screen goes blank and after 5 -10 min will let you turn the unit back on

A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Frozen screen and it says loader loading

Press the reset button - you'll find it on the lower right of the Nüvi 255, but it doesn't look like a button. It's basically the sticker with all the information on it. It's just enough to push the sticker carefully with something small, not too sharp so it doesn' get destroyed. The Nüvi reboots, the loader loads and proceeds with the software load. Once this is over, shut down the Nüvi and reconnect to the PC. Then, everything works fine (it did at least for me).

My Garmin 205 shows "system software missing" after update. Tried to hold on the start button for a minute and tried to touch the lower right corner on screen, but its dead...


I just got an answer from Garmin Support Germany and they sent me an file which fixed the problem. Just download

It contains a "Updater.exe" and a file called "085100010270.rgn".

Follow the following steps and you should have your nüvi back.

Firstly connect your broken nüvi. Then drag and drop the 085100010270.rgn on the updater.exe. Choose USB as a connection and it should put an old firmware back on your device.

I hope I was able to help you!

Blank Screen on Garmin E-Trex Vista

The problem is that your software version needs updating. A recently added satellite creates a glitch in the older software. Go to the Garmin website, load WebUpdater if you haven't already done so, and the updated version (3.8) will automatically install to your Garmin unit. I had the same symptoms, they have now disappeared and my Etrex Vista is back to normal.

No GPS Signal in TomTom One XL all of a sudden

I suddenly lost the GPS signal today and could not get it back. All I got was the "No valid GPS signal". My solution was to tap on the GPS satellite bars when in the route map. this brought up the "Status summary page of the TOMTOM.

I then again tapped the satellite bar which brought up the "GPS Status" page. I then tapped the bar labeled "configure".

The radio button next to the option titled "Minutes (dm.m') was selected. I then moved the selection to "Degrees (d.d) and it started working.

I had just downloaded the GPS fix 5 days ago so it is not like this suddenly caused it to stop working.

This may not work for everyone but this is what it took to get mine working.

Kna-g510 gps receiver not working

Clock doesn't update

Ensure you have the latest software....7.10

Also, hold down the menu and map button when you power it up for 15 seconds or so.

Make sure you have a clear view of the sky....let it sit for 20 min.

Answer the questions on the screen and try again.

Note: doing the above will cause the unit to lose all your favorites, recent finds etc., so do a back up.
