Question about Garmin GPS
You will need to reset your Nuvi as it is locked into computer mode. To reset it - depending on your version see below.
On some Nuvis there is a recessed master reset button on the body of the unit which you need to access with a nib of a pen or bent paper clip.
For Nuvi 660/680 series
Power off Garmin unit. Press and hold the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
For nuvi 200, 250, 360 750, 760 series
Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and while holding it power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
If the above fails it is likely that the problem is not with the Nuvi but the charging unit which is not signalling the unit properly and the Nuvi is recognising it as a USB cable instead of a charger.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.
