    i want to get my nuvi 360 back to factory settings since i downloaded updates from the garmin site it does not function

  • BOB TOPPER Jan 13, 2008

    trying to reset my garmin 360 to factory or default setting. got as far as main screen with question 'do you really want to start maintenance mode" but when i said yes, nothing happend.

  • BOB TOPPER Jan 13, 2008

    help

  • BOB TOPPER Jan 13, 2008

    still having the problem nothing has worked yet any body any help?

  • BOB TOPPER Jan 13, 2008

    when i do the 'do you really? yes? nothing happens but i can hit and accept no - problem. then when the enter your pin comes up it will not accept my code,,,actually, when i press one number, another number all together lgits up. when i hit #3, it actually erases the last digit.

  • BOB TOPPER Jan 14, 2008

    you seem to know what you are talking about. garmin said i cant log in bec it is out of calibration. told me to go to my security location, open the antena at a 90 degrees, turn on the unit. it will reset itself and when the screen with tools comes on go to recalibration. i am concerned 1. there is more to it than that since all of this started after downloading crap from their website (tech said "coincidental") and 2. when i touch tools (if it gets that far) that it wont take the touch.

  • BOB TOPPER Jan 14, 2008

    firmware, heck, i cant even get into unit to accept anything. their is no 'firmware' to download via computer.

    just want to recalibrate (how can i if every prompt i touch enters a different command and to go back to factory settings. i would gladly start all over again with my personal info if it would work right

Holding the mark key down while powering up will totally reset unit. You will lose all user supplied data and preferences. The machine will be set back to factory defaults. Be careful, there is no warning message. All data will be lost!

After you perform a full reset you will need to allow the unit to collect a full almanac before normal can be resumed. First a fix will need to be obtained which can take from 5 to 10 minutes of leaving your unit outdoors, stationary, with a good sky view. After the first lock you will need another 12.5 to 15 minutes to get the almanac reloaded. Check the date to insure that the information was reloaded properly. Time will be shown as UTC time since your local time offset was lost in the reset.

    "mark" is the second key down on the right hand side of the unit. It could also be called the "option" key.

Hi,

What do you mean when you say goofy? How is it functioning? Did you use webupdater to update your firmware?

http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/

Or did you download the firmware?

http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=1847

After you reset by the reset button on the back of unit, under the flip out antenna, what happens? Is the unit still "goofy"?

You can also try to hard reset the unit.

Here is how you can perform a hard reset to clear all your waypoint memory:

MAINTENANCE MODE:
Step 1. Turn your Nuvi unit off, remove any SD cards from the SD card slot and make sure that the unit is not plugged into any computer.
Step 2. Place a fingertip on the upper left hand corner of the touch screen and keep it there while turning the unit on, a prompt should read " Do you really want to start in maintenance mode?"
Step 3. Select the yes button.
Step 4. Enter your PIN if enabled.
Step 5. Main Maintenance Mode screen should have 4 selections:
System information
View Diagnostics
Clear User data
Clear Waypoints
Step 6. Choose "Clear Waypoints". After some time the unit should reboot.

Let me know what happens.

    In step number two, if upper left corner doesn't work, try the lower left corner.

    The code youa re entering...is it the code you set in the unit?

Ok you need to get back the firmware you originally had ,,
then reinstall it,,

However in the event it wont downgrade it self you can use the hpformat utility to remove it..

to regain the oldfirmware contact the manufacture and ask for the firmware, It might also be aviable on their web page..

    Alright, to reset your GPS, you have to raise your antenna, and there will be a reset button on the back. :)

My garmin 1300 went completly dead while on a route with the power cord attached. Unpluged tried again . Now its working. Is this normal?


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Mine automatally went to the site and got a list of things you could update, but in my case there was nothing to download. But the web site for the GPS has all of the answers

GArmin Nuvi 360 - bluetooth not working right


Wow, as soon as I got my nuvi 360 I turned the Bluetooth off. I then updated to 4.40 and the bluetooth SW version is now 0.00 and i cant even enable the bluetooth again. I think we have the same problem. I wish I could help but I am in the same boat.
