Garmin nuvi 205 won't turn on

I was recently on a trip and my GPS was working fine. I turned it off and when I tried to turn it on nothing happened. It did not say it was low on power before. I plugged it in with the cigarette lighter and nothing happened. It did not even show the charging message. Its as if there is absolutely no power.

It might be that the fuse located at the tip of the vehicle adapter has blown and needs to be replaced. It sounds like you are getting no power at all. Please refer to page 43 in your manual for instructions on replacing the fuse.

Yesterday my Nuvi 205 worked fine, today it will not turn on. I have verified with another unit that the charge cable is fine and the other units charger will not activate my Nuvi


If your Garmin NUVI 205 can be recognized by your computer when plugged in, I recommend you backup your favorites.

Then I suggest attempting a hard reset.

Finally, replace the firmware and system software using webupdate. Your Nuvi should not need to be able to power up for a firmware update to be possible - replacing the firmware should allow it to power up successfully after the update.

I hope that helps.

I plug it in to the car charger and nothing happens, no lights


If your Garmin Nuvi 205 has stopped working or is behaving strangely, there are two steps you can take yourself to try and get it going again:

  1. Perform a Hard Reset,
  2. Run WebUpdater to reinstall that firmware.

I hope that helps.

Screen froze up on my nuvi 205


have u tried resetting the GPS?, the reset in on the bottom, use a paper clip and poke through the decal and reset the button, that should clear the problem in most cases, this is caused by a full memory, erase as much saved data as you can to free up space, examples are "recently found" items, saaved trip or addresses you don't need anymore

Garmin nuvi 205 can't find satellites


you can get the manual at www.garmin.com
you'll also need to get yourself a usb cable... the normal end for the computer and i believe the other end is called a mini b connector.
