I suggest you reset your GPS, to reset your gps, follow this steps, turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, 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.
Once the Garmin GPS unit is reset, remember to place the device outside where there is a clear unobstructed view of the sky for 15 – 30 minutes in order for it to requires fix to GPS satellites. with this, this should fix the problem.

Take care.

SOURCE: trying to install the rand

1. Make sure the TND 500 is turned on.
2. Connect the USB cable provided in the box to connect to your computer.
3. Go to your start menu, click on computer.
4. You should see two external drives if if is a T5B and one external drive if it is a T5C.

The external drives will not show up on the desktop. It is an external device just like an external hard drive. If you cannot see the external device, can you see other devices connected to the same USB port? If not, then it suggests the USB port is bad.

You can most certainly E-Mail me at for futher technical support.

You have a few corrupted files internally. This is a message that might be misleading. Contact Rand Support to
obtain a new update SD Card to upgrade you to the new version and maps. The update SD Card will not remove your user
data. Be sure to have your serial number handy,

The download did not go correctly. You have a unit that is
missing or has incomplete files. Contact Rand Support and they will send you an
update card. It will not delete your user data and it will upgrade you to the
current version and with new maps. Be sure to have the serial number off the
back of the TND (bottom right) handy.Thanks Mark, Rand Lead Beta Tester

How can I change the glass in a rand mcanlly 510?

You could try, where they have manuals, video's for free, about how to repair electronic equipment. They also can help (not for free) with spare parts and tools, when you need some.

Rand mcnally tnd 510 wont

No you don't have to cut into it. Might be to late now but this is how you take it apart. 710 is the same way

1- Remove the front film. This is held on with 3m double sided tape. So it will be stiff and you will have to work at it for a little while.
2- Once the front cover is off you will see the retaining bezel under this. There are about 8-12 screws running around the outside of this. All of these screws must come out. Don't lose them since you will need them to put the unit back together again.
3- Once you have all these screws out a small flat screwdriver can be worked under the edge to begin separating the retaining cover from the unit. Patience and time are your friends. Impatience means new unit.
4- Once you remove the retainer you will have access to the insides of the unit. Reassembly is the reverse order

Will not hold a charge and will not turn on its tnd 510

Unit draws it's power through the battery not the charger. Don't ask me why i have no idea. If the battery will not hold a charge then the unit will not turn on. Battery is replacable. Make sure you do not throw out the battery since you might have to remove the plug on the old battery and put it on the new one. I don't know if you can get the specific battery for this unit but it is a common battery battery. Should be just the plug that makes it UNIQUE

How come my tnd 500 will not turn on and its fully charged?

Try pressing the reset button on the back or the side of the TND. If it still will not power on contact Rand McNally support. Be sure to have your serial number handy, (back of TND, bottom right)
