Re: garmin wont stay on

How did you charge the unit? If you have not done so, try charging in on the computer for a few hours. Sometimes this can help.

My just purchased yesterday will not turn on this morning. should I return it , I have tired the power button x 10 sec. and doing the finger at the lower right screen still nothing .

Try charging it first. It takes 4 hours to charge fully if connected to a car charger or a mains charger. It takes 8 hours connected to a computer with the USB cable. If it's charged and still will not turn on bring it back and get it replaced.

Just got new battery put in because of recall only used one time. Turned on garmin and garmin screen came on and is stuck on this screen. Does not turn off or on What's up?

Your device freezed that is why it is stuck on the garmin screen. You need to first reset your garmin by holding the power on/off button for about 15 seconds, that way it will restart.
About the battery, when you get a new battery for your device, you need to charge it for about 3 hours before powering on, once you power on without charging it first, then it might kill the cells of the battery as they are lithium ion battery. What you have to do is to remove the battery, insert it back, then you plug it to a power source for about 3 hours, be sure that the battery is charging as the green light comes on as you plug it. If the green light does not come on, then you need to connect it to a computer using your USB cable, that way it will charge. Once it is charged for about 3hours, then you will be able to turn on your device. First reset, then charge battery. That should do the job for you.
Hope this information was helpful.

Brand new Garmin Nuvi 1490 T out of the box. How do I charge it? The only devices in box were a car charger (my commute is 5 minutes daily) and a USB connector? Should I just plug the USB into my computer?...

Garmin satnavs come with a charge out of the box.
In some cases your device may have lost a charge during shelf life. In this case you can charge these units in three ways:
  1. Place unit on computer with USB cable for approximately 8-12 hours
  2. Place unit on Garmin specified AC adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours
  3. Place unit on 12V vehicle adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours.
Some cars continue to supply power to the cigarette lighter socket when turned off and others don't. If yours doesn't you can charge it from your computer. There's no indicator to show that it's charging or when it's charged. However when you disconnect the satnav from the computer and turn it on there's a battery state indicator which shows if it's fully charged or not.

Garmin Nuvi 350 GPS, not working

Hello, Here was my problem. I was traveling at 60mph yesterday and my Nuvi 360 dislodged and fell down with a huge impact inside my car. I came home and tried to look for any damage. Unfortunately Nuvi had stopped to continue beyond loading maps screen. I tried rebooting , but the problem persisted. It would take me to reboot screen, but after screen calibration, when it came to loading map screen, again went blank. I tried this and just simple starting by pushing power button several times but to no avail. I called technical support, eho advised me to to just simply connect it to my labtop and leave it that way for 3 to4 hours. Bingo!, in the next 30 mins, I accidentally switched my laptop top off, but Nuvi had started to work all fine.
