Hello, your firmware became corrupt. You need to go to a service center and have the device flashed. It should take only 15 min to flash and should be covered under warranty by the provider or manufacture. If you have no service center near by or its not covered under warranty for whatever reason, check my profile and im sure we can help you.

SOURCE: remote appears frozen

I got the same issue with mine, and hooking to the computer and upgrading the firmware worked for me. I first had to take the bateries out and let it sit for 24 hours so it would loose the codes inside. No problems after that.

This is not correct. This indicates that there is a problem with the satellite receiver. There should always be a number assigned to the GPS S/W version. If it returns a value of 0.0 this is a problem. If your unit is new, take it back to the store or call Garmin.

The GPS antennas are sealed so I don't see why they would ask if you sprayed the hose at won't matter. I did some fishing this past year in the Keys on a boat with the same system you have and I scrubbed the GPS antenna and sprayed it directly with water and it did not have water intrusion.

Do you know which GPS antenna you have? Also, do you have any other equipment that may be interfaced to the MFD? I am assuming that you have a NMEA2000 antenna (model GP330B). If this is the case I would first check the NMEA2000 backbone. If you don't know what that is look for some cables all plugging together via Tees. there will be 2 cables per tee and the tees plug together. Make sure that there is a terminator at the end of the tee block. If you have the NMEA2000 antenna the other terminator should be in the antenna itself.

Do you have the engine interface wired to the MFD? If so, unhook that wire. I have seen some really weird things happen if the engines are sending some information back to the display.

We have installed many of these systems and the only failures I have seen are people damaging the radar antennas. The systems we have installed have been bulletproof for the most part.

Nuvi is frozen on warning screen. Won't reset by hoding power but

If you haven't already done so, I would suggest you connect to, register your device, and download/install the WebUpdater.

Then connect your unit to your computer using the USB cable that was included. This will start your unit in a very different mode (it will appear as a storage device to your computer), which WebUpdater will recognize. WebUpdater will check the current release level of your unit's software and let you update it to the latest version. The update process may well cure the problem when next you start the unit in GPS mode.

Good luck.

You can get your original splash scren from here. You can also download free splash screens created by user through TomTom HOME.

To correct your device, try:

1. Hit the reset button on the back of the device - inside the serial connector.
2. Make sure the device is off and connect it to your computer via USB dock and connect the charging cable (green light should be on)
3. Hold down the power button until the device restarts.
4. The device should automatically connect to your computer.
5. Run TomTom HOME and check for any updates.
6. If there is no new application, try: <-- that will show you how to remove and then reinstall the application.

By David707,
Since posting ma last re: Screen Freezing on external charge; I did manage to get the system back to some normality by pressing the Reset button located underneath the GPS Antenna flap. However this is likely to delete personally stored data on the system.
I should also state that the same problem occurs when I connect the 610 t my PC via the USB connection (another way to externally charge the battery).
A more satisfactory answer required though.
