I must warn you resetting the device may erase your data or settings. Hold the power button for 15 seconds.The device turns off. Then hold for one second to turn on the device.

Garmin nuvi 1450 will not turn on

You should be able to resolve the issue by resetting your unit. The 1450 is reset by pressing and holding the Power button for about 20 seconds. Your unit should then start up like it normally would.

If the reset does not resolve the issue then you may either have a dead battery or an electronic issue. You can check if the issue is the battery by plugging your unit into your computer using the USB cable that was supplied with your unit. The Garmin is programmed to automatically draw power and recharge it's battery when it is plugged into a unit with the USB cord. You can try the reset option again while you are attached to the computer. If you are still unable to get the unit to come on then you will have to take the unit into a Garmin authorized repair center. They will be able to test your battery and let you know if it needs to be replaced. Then can also tell you if the issue is internal to the unit, and what it will cost you to repair the unit.

Find a local Garmin dealer - there's no way to reinstall system software once its missing essential parts to complete a startup.

Garmin allows updates in battery mode which can brick the GPS once it runs out of power during the update.

Your Nuvi has suffered the firmware or system software equivalent of a stroke.

I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 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.

I hope that helps.

Nuvi 200 series manuals available here.

Car starts run's 3 seconds shuts down

Your car is equipped with a system called PASSKEY standard on all GM cars and light trucks, try the following procedure to reset the system, the battery being dead will trigger the system.

1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.
