Question about Garmin nuvi 2797LMT - GPS receiver

Open Question

I have a nuvi 2797LMT that locks up on booting.

It gets to the Garmin screen just before loading maps and freezes and will not even turn off. The only thing that gets a response is holding the on/off button for 30 secs and it resets then reboots and locks again. Holding the left top of the screen whilst starting causes it to scroll SYSTEM then LOADING then it locks with two lines and TOUCH DOT in the left bottom. Kevin H

SOURCE: my garmin nuvi 260 will not go past the loading maps screen

There is a corrupt or missing file associated with the mapping thats causing it to lock up. When that file is missing, your Nuvi never gets to the routine for communicating with your PC. That's why your PC can't detect it.

I've fixed this problem before. The unit must be placed in PRE-BOOT mode, forcing Windows to recognize it and then using a specific program, reflash the firmware to an older version that doesn't care that the file is missing. The unit will then boot properly and you'll regain detection to the unit in Windows. Then you can repair/replace the missing files and then reflash back to the latest firmware.

Yes, its a pain and not an easy process to the novice.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 205 screen freezes

When a Garmin Nuvi 205 stops working or behaves strangely, there are two steps you can take yourself to try and get it going again:

  1. Perform a Hard Reset,
  2. Run WebUpdater to reinstall that firmware.

I hope that helps.

SOURCE: my garmin nuvi 255w keeps

There is a hard reset button under the sticker at the bottom of the unit. It is located directly under the check mark on the sticker. Once you get it going fully charge the unit then go to the Garmin website and register and update your 255w. I will attach the link to the Garmin Site. Thanks for using FixYa

1300 nuvi screen comes up loading maps and stops


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that 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.
