1) Power up
2) Press battery symbol until you enter in test mode
3) Connect USB cable (if you do this step, you must see in device manager as GARMIN USB DEVICE)
4) Make update from WEBUPDATE
You must see update for GPS receiver. When it finished remove the cable to restart

Garmin just shows its loading maps and then screen goes blank and it repeats this even when I hold down the button for 10 seconds to reboot Why is it not turning on?


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 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.

Touch screen not working properly


If recalibration didn't work, then the touchscreen has failed. This NOT A FIRMWARE ISSUE!!

System software missing garmin 250w


If the unit indicates "software/firmware missing", then you can only try to re-install firmware by running WebUpdater again. If it doesn't work, then the unit has to be sent to service to have it re-flashed.

WebUpdater can be installed via the link below and you must use it:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27


Once updated please allow the unit to reboot which will ensure the software successfully installs.



After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
Garmin Communicator Communicator Plugin is properly installed and up to date, version 2.9.1.0. (Dec 21, 2009) If after following all the above the final steps would be to perform a master reset.

  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers on. After 5-10 seconds you will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes, and wait

The device will automatically reset. Please follow the on screen prompts on the nuvi and when completed place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.

Garmin Nuvi Firmaware Update Complete, Unable to catch satellite signal


So what happens when you connect it to the PC?
Make sure no sd cards are installed while you do this.
download and install web updater, run it it gets to a screen where it looks for the gps, plug the usb cable into the GPS (no USB hubs please!!!) Make sure it detects the GPS before you continue. Select the updates you need (don't install all the languages !!) after this is done the program will report the downloads are on the garmin, unplug the unit and it will reboot and whilst rebooting it will install the updates....so don't touch it until it reboots again and displays the regular screen....and make sure the batery is fully charged before you do this...!
