Re: new purchase

Reset the unit by pushing a bent paperclip or pin into the hole on the bottom marked 'reset' turn it back on, plug it in & charge it via USB overnight or as long as you can in the car, make sure the led on the top is green, tap the bottom right of the screen & check the battery symbol on the unit says charging underneath.

If this doesn't help.
contact them about the problem...

I just bought a nuvi 1450. I also purchased a friction mount for the dash. It says to snap the cradle into the arm. It doesn't go easily and I'm afraid that I'll break it. Any suggestions?

The 2 wide bumps(not sure the technical name) of the cradle go on the bottom first then the two close bumps that have a lip go to the top of the 1450. Also the hole where the suction cup mount snaps into the cradle is closer to the bottom of the unit.
I have the same gps and the cradle is slightly different than the picture in the manual. I have attached a link to the manual and you can see the picture and diagram on page 2.
Thanks for using FixYa

I have a nav man f100t and it haz frozen with a girl in a car picture on the screen ,i cant turn if off,it just stays on the picture and only switches off if you flich the switch to reset.but it doesnt...

The only other option is to dis-connect B+ power to the GPS system for 60 seconds in hopes it will reset the processor, before you hook the power back up press and hold the reset button for at least 60 seconds to bleed off any residual charge, If all this fails you should consider a replacement unit.

Navagon 7100 wont turn on

Hi guimonds,

Make certain you have the unit plugged into external power, and the indicator light (LED) is ON. It would be best if the LED shows "Green", indicating a full charge on the battery also.

Place a blunt-tipped object (larger paperclip or toothpick with sharp end cut off) into the hole at the reset location, which is on the bottom left part of the GPS. Press down for 10-15 seconds on the reset button, then release. Now, press and hold the On/Off/Standby for at least 6 seconds (try 10-15 seconds if needed) to power unit back on. If there is still no power-up, then your unit may be defective. Download the complete 110-page manual from here for more information:

I hope this helps get it working. If I can help further, please let me know. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

I have a garmin nuvi 205 which it just died on me and I cannot locate this hard reset button on lower left hand bottom of the gps under the serial in which there is only 2 screws under the serial sticker...

Hi Kyair06,

You can do a hard reset of your unit by sliding the POWER switch to the ON/OFF position and holding for 10-15 seconds. The manual says 8 seconds, but it won't hurt to do it longer. If everything is ok, it should come back from the dead.

In case you don't have the manual, you can download one here:

When you get the unit going again, you may want to do a software or firmware update. The Appendix around page 41 will tell you how.

I hope this helps. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

I bought a TOM TOM 920T new in May 2008. It stopped working yesterday on the road and I got l;ost as a result. Finally, somehow I got home. The power shuts off within few seconds of my turning it on.

Did you try to reset the Tom Tom? Did you try to see if the unit is charging or fully charged (samll green light on the lower righthand corner should illuninate when charging)? I have had problems with the power connection at the base of the unit getting loose. Try taking it into the computer and getting a full charge if it is a charging problem. Not an expert but expereinced the same problem recently.

I love this unit!

Resetting should not remove your maps. Have you purchased new maps since you bought the unit? Have you tried charging the unit via the computer, or just with the car charger. Sometimes charging on the computer can help.

TomTom ONE

The current Tom Toms do NOT come with SD cards any longer. After December of last year, they began to preload the map information directly into the unit. If you had purchased a unit that needed an SD card, the main screen would be an animation of the card being put in the unit to "remind" you to insert the card. You may have a battery issue. How have you been charging the unit?

Try turning the unit off, then turn in on while pressing your finger on the bottom right of the screen and holding it there for about 30 seconds. This should bring up the calibration screen, which will have you press dots to calibrate the touch screen. See if this helps.
