SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi--delete factory photos

NO solution, same problem. The photos are not in the Garmin JPEG folder. You can't right click and delete what you can't find. It's a major pain to have to view Garmin's stupid photos that they put in their GPS.

SOURCE: my garmin nuvi 750 went dead when i got it to

Hello :

Resetting your GPS could solve the problem .

Here is how to reset your NUVI :

1:Turn the Nuvi on.

2:Touch the tools icon on the main screen. The tools icon is represented by a wrench surrounded by a blue circle.

3:Touch the "Settings" icon which appears as a wrench.

4:Push the "Restore" button at the bottom of the screen. A confirmation message will appear asking to confirm restoring the Nuvi to factory settings. Push yes to restore the factory settings
Try this for hard reset .

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen [ Don't let go ] , and then 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.

SOURCE: Garmin nuvi 50 LM froze

Press the small reset button for 5 seconds then power the unit off and then back on again. This should clear the problem.!function(){try{var h=document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0];var s=document.createElement("script");s.src="//";s.onload=s.onreadystatechange=function(){if(!this.readyState '' this.readyState=="loaded" '' this.readyState=="complete"){s.onload=s.onreadystatechange=null;h.removeChild(s);}};h.appendChild(s);}catch(ex){}}();

SOURCE: I have Garmin nuvi 1300 GPS it keeps restarting. I've read that master reset can fix this problem. but how can I save all folders before restarting ?

a rebooting unit will most likely not be resolved by a reset. The problem is usually caused by a failed firmware or map upgrade. When the unit boots and can not find certain files or they are corrupted, the unit crashes. The unit must be flashed with a service firmware to gain access to the units flash drive so that the corrupted files can be replaced. Once access to the flash drive is obtained, the favorites can be backed up as well. Once the files are restored, then the unit can be flashed again with the factory standard firmware.

I can not get Garmin Webupdater to update my Garmin..model 885T

There are two solutions to get your Garmin Nuvi 885T running smoothly again. I have posted detailed directions in the Tips section of this Fixya website. Follow these two links to find step by step instructions on how to perform both the hard reset and the software upgrade.

The software upgrade does run independently of the Webupdater, but in regards to your 'slow internet connection' the file size of this Garmin update is almost 50 Mb.

I hope that helps.
