In checking the experts bulletin boards, there were some updates occurring and some of the servers were down. Please give the system a bit of time to come back online. Regarding your product registration, it is possible the product has not been previously recognized by the system. Please try once again, and if still no luck, please e-mail the FixYa staff. I'm certain they will be more than willing to help you with all of your concerns.

Thank you.

    Hello Russell,

    I understand your frustration. I am a registered expert with the company, not a support personnel. I have a regular job, and answer questions in the areas that I am registered with...

    I do not know what you are referring to. I am sorry, but I cannot answer questions regarding the registration of your product. I answer technical questions that are sent to me to answer. Yours showed up on my screen. I will try after work to help you. The only thing I can suggest to you is that you contact support at

    My suggestion is that you register your product with the company that manufactures your product. FixYa is an independent company not associated with Garmin, to my knowledge. I was not aware you are being asked to pay to register your GPS. There has to have been a misunderstanding. Please contact customer support. I am a regular person, just like you. I do not get paid a salary from FixYa, adn as a matter of fact, most of the questions I answer are for absolutely free, that is to say I am not being paid for answering the majority of the questions I answer.

How to charge low battery

The Nuvi uses a standard USB connector. You can try charging it with the USB cable attached to your computer or to a USB phone charger. If it still won't charge fully, the battery needs replaced.

My Garmin nuvi 1260 T I can't use GPS with a charger. Itgoes to the agreement screen and then it flashes off. Also, it does not hold a charge.The moment we connect the charger to the receiver, the screen...

This sounds like a Garmin fix but try this before giving up.
First shut the unit off and place your thumb like in this picture and keep it there with some medium pressure -

This gives you this screen - choose yes - -
Then CHARGE with a WALL unit - - for 4 hours - It must be a WALL unit - -88b9a94.jpg

Select YES and charge it up - if it still doesn't work - then I would give up and send it to Garmin

Charging doesn't display map when charging

I learned that with the unit off - hold the on button down - don't release it. A PRE-BOOT MODE message will appear at the bottom and may flash. Continue holding down the start button. The first time I did it a series of dots came on the screen and I was instructed to touch each one. After that it started as normal. I plugged into a wall charger and but git the pc and nuvi icons again. I repeated the process - holding the on button on and let the PRE-BOOT MODE appear and kept holding but this time a different message came on and then the PRE-BOOT MODE appeared again. I let it go and took the unit to my car and plugged it into the Garmin car charger and it worked as it used to - normal. However, when I plugged it back in the house to the wall charged I got the pc and nuvi icon again. It appears that I am using the wrong wall charger as a previous writes stated. But the nuvi still worked in the car plugged into the nuvi charger. I hope this helps.

Am I able to charge Nuvi 205w with a standard cell outlet charger

For us, only the Nuvi car charger works - not plugging the Nuvi into a computer USB port, or using our Blackberry cell phone charger, both of which have the same type of plug.

New Nuvi 760 that won't work

Using the PC to charge a Nuvi is not the correct way to charge. Use either the AC wall charger or DC car charger. Many PC USB ports can not supply enough current to charge a Nuvi.
