Do a hard reset on the unit. That restores it to factory default setting and may correct the internal fault. Then run Garmin Express to update it.

My Garmin has lost much of its "touch response" especially the lower lines where the Spell, go-back arrow, and go-down to next options are. Basically useless for all but Map viewing


Take you GPS to a repair service and get recalibrated or repaired the touch-screen. Or do it yourself?

My screen will not open beyond the garmin logo. My computer will also not recognize my garmin


The Nuvi has to be able to boot to the main screen before it can access the subroutines that allow it to be recognized by the PC. You have a boot-up issue caused by either a corrupted map/system files or corrupted flash drive. Please see this link on how to have this problem repaired:

I cannot get past the startup screen! The nuvi just shuts off.


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, 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.

Garmin 2460 software reset


Hello,

There are 2 different reset modes, a soft reset and a hard reset.

A soft reset is done by holding down the power button for at least 10 seconds and letting the Nuvi restart.

A hard reset will return the Nuvi to factory specification and will clear all user data like the favorites.

Hard Reset:
1.Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
2.Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
3.Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
4.Release the power button when the device powers ON. You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
5.Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
6.Touch Yes
The device will automatically reset. Follow the on screen prompts.

Garmin Nuvi 1350 - will not power on unless I hold power button down for the 10 second reset. At this point, the device powers on until it reaches the "loading maps" point and then shuts down.


If your device is currently experiencing the following symptoms it may need to come in for service/repair:
  • The device powers on and freezes at the Garmin logo with no trademark or copywrite info displayed on the device which normally shows up below the logo. The device will not display the Main Menu and will not go into Mass Storage Mode.
  • The device powers on and freezes at the Garmin logo and then flashes a white screen briefly. The device then begins a loop of showing the Garmin logo and then flashes the white screen over and over again. The device will not display the Main Menu and will not go into Mass Storage Mode.
  • The device powers on and then freezes or shuts down when displaying the Loading Maps screen.
For service/repair of a device due to the three symptoms listed above please select "No - I would like to submit a follow up email" below this article. You will be taken to an email form that you can submit to obtain a Return Material Authorization number.
Please note: It is important to completely fill out the form with as much information as possible including:
  • Market Name: On the Road
  • Serial Number (listed on the bottom of the device)
  • Question Type: Repair Information
  • Provide a short description of your problem or question: nuvi frozen on Garmin Logo
  • Full Name
  • Contact Phone Number
  • Shipping Address

Download the Garmin Communicator Plugin and Web Updater software from Garmin's website - both tools are free and will load the proper USB drivers for your 765T.

Ensure that the battery is fully charged via the battery strength icon, prior to aquiring satellites.

To reset the 765T: Hold finger or thumb on lower right hand corner of screen while powering the unit on from the off position. This will erase all user data.

Plugged device into car outlet. Device comes on, shows Garmin name and then shuts off and does nothing more. Prior to this happening screen displayed "battery low".

But change battery....
