Screen touch has no response


Welcome to Fixya.

This is a known issue for Garmin nuvi 550 and 650.
Re-calibrate your touchscreen.
Press and hold the power button 2-3 minutes, the unit will enter the calibration process. Calibrate as instructed.

Thank you for using Fixya, have a great day.

My garmin 265w. I can not get a charge to last more than an hour and it takes forever to charge


it probably has a Li-ion battery and they start loosing the ability to hold a charge just as soon as they are manufactured. If your Garmin sat on a store's shelf for a year, it had already lost about a third of its ability. Li-ion batterys last about 3 years.

My battery is 2 year's old and is now only lasting 30 minutes after fully re-charging.


Two years is actually pretty good for a rechargeable battery in regular/constant use.
Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries have around 500 recharge cycles and then will loose capacity very quickly as for your unit.

This internal Li-Ion battery will now need to be replaced.

Hope it helps.

Can not turn on! my garmin nuvi 200w I think it is locked,


if ther battery went totally flat place it on charge for an hour or so to revive it. Max battery life in storage is 4 days with a good battery.

Charging it even tho the charge light may not show should build up enough charge to eventually show the light and allow you to turn it on. It should remain on charge for 5hrs.

Other possibility is a collapsed cell in battery, replace the battery

Garmin Nuvi 650 powers off when connected with car


I had this problem. The problem turned out to be my car charger. Hooking the GPS up to my computer allowed it to charge and operate normally. A new car adapter might fix you right up.

Garmin nuvi 765 lithium battery will not hold a charge more than 15 minutes!


This is kind of a late response, but this post may help other people. I had the same issue and was ready to have Garmin exchange my battery until I called them today and spoke to Tech support. They helped me upgrade the firmware on the unit (didnt take long) and so far the problem has been resolved. I have had it on for two hours without fully charging it, which is better than before when it only stayed on for about 20 minutes. I recommend that people with this issue call them first since it appears to be a common issue with this model nuvi.

Visual direction and Text direction is different


To fix this problem you will need to download the latest version of Training Centre from the Garmin website and also update your units software.
Update Training Centre:
  1. Close Training Centre if its open on your PC
  2. Visit http://www.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=835
  3. Click Download
  4. Click Run when prompted
  5. Follow the onscreen instructions to update Training Centre on your PC
Update the software on the device:
  1. Visit: http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater
  2. Follow the onscreen instructions to Download WebUpdater
  3. Click Run when prompted
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to install WebUpdater
  5. WebUpdater will run automatically once installation is complete
  6. Follow the onscreen instructions to update your Edge
If the above steps do not correct the issue, then you can carry out a master reset on the unit as a last resort:
Note: The master reset will clear all user data including training history from the unit

  1. Turn off the Edge
  2. Hold down Mode + Power
  3. Select Yes when the unit asks if you want to erase all user data
  4. After resetting your Edge, leave it with a clear view of the sky for about 30 minutes without moving it to acquire a GPS fix
