The reset button on your nuvi will switch the device off. The reset button can be used to switch your device off if the screen is frozen and you are unable to switch the device off by the power button.

To reset a nuvi 2xx:

  1. Look at the bottom of the device
  2. Locate the small circle with a dot inside
  3. Press the circle to reset the device.
To reset a nuvi 3xx or 6xx:
  1. Lift the antenna
  2. Locate a button with the word Reset inside
  3. Press the button to reset the device.
The device will now switch off.

When i charge my garmin nuvi 260W with a car chager, the screen would be stuck, and i'm not able to use it.?


garmin are very fussy about there chargers if its the original charger then there is a fault with it if its not the original then get one ( you can only use genuine garmin chargers for garmin gps units) they have a clever sensor in them that stops you from using any other type of charger
