Hi

If you have already tried charging the batteries and it still will not boot up then it should be the issue with the batteries going bad. You can first press the Power button to turn off the unit, and then press again to turn the unit back on after 3-5 minutes. If this does not help, then you have to reset your GPS. There should be instructions given on how to reset in your user manual, please tell me the brand and model no# for your GPS so that I can assist you regarding model specific information. If after resetting the unit it still wont boot up then I believe you’ll need to replace the battery.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Harmon nuvi 1300 won't go into preboot. I've tried everything I can imagine (power on touching each corner) none working even center. Tried holding the power button, loads up to garmin then powers off


Pre-boot mode is accessed by powering off the device and touching the left upper corner of the screen, while plugging in the USB cable into the unit with the other end already inserted into the USB port of a PC. Please note that pre-boot mode has a time limit and does not stay on indefinitely.

When I switch the device on it comes up with press dot screen


Have you tried a screen calibration? Turn off the unit then press and hold the upper left of the screen as you turn it on. A dot will show up on screen and then press the dot firmly as it moves around the screen. When it is done it will say screen calibration complete.
I also assume you tried a reset by pressing the reset button or on the newer units just hold the power button while turning it on for about 15 seconds until it reboots.
Thanks for using FixYa

Dots and dose not work


If you see Dots that keep moving around the screen, I think it is trying to calibrate...... keep pressing the dots until another screen come up... I read that on the gps website if I find it again I wil post it for you.

Garmin Nuvi 205 screen freezes


When a Garmin Nuvi 205 stops working or behaves 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.

I recently updated nt2010.20 map since then my nuvi 350 freezes while loading maps i tried reset, hard reset, preboot,when i connect it on USB i cant see device on my PC.is there any way to delete map...


NO!. THE MAPS CAN ONLY BE DELETED USING THE USB CABLE. GO TO GARMIN WEBSITE YOU MAY NEED TO DOWNLOAD THE USB DRIVERS. THEN TRY THE UPDATE AGAIN. IF THE MAPS ARE ON A CD YOU WILL ALSO NEED THE UNLOCK CODES AND THE UNIT SERIAL NUMBER.

My Garmin Nuvi 760, after the Garmin bootup screen, goes to a press dot screen and then freezes. I have tried setting back to factory setting but that did not work. Any Suggestions?


try a master reset:
How to do a master reset:

1. Turn on the unit
2. While it's booting up keep pressing the bottom right corner of the screen.
3. A message will appear asking if you want to clear user data. Answer yes.
4. Bootup will continue. It's after this that you have to re-enter or confirm your country and time zone.

I hope this helps
