    Can you clarify a little? Do you mean it has been turned on and has not been able to be turned of since Sept 06 2006, or do you mean the date is stuck on Sept 06 2006? If neither of these, please elaborate.

There are few reset options. If unit totally frozen just take the battery out and put it back after 20 minutes later
Reset options have been indicated in the user manual
If you dont have user manual you can use the link below

Garmin GPS - stuck , not updating, no signal problems, update maps


If your Garmin GPS is stuck on a loading screen, not updating properly, not acquiring a signal or having other quirky problems. You can follow the steps below to help resolve some of these issues.

In order to update the firmware on your Garmin GPS device you will need a USB cable and Garmin's WebUpdater software. You can find the update software from the following link below,

Click here for update software

Click here for map updates

To update your firmware through the WebUpdater software, you want to turn off your GPS device, plug it into your computer. Run the WebUpdater software then turn on your device. If the software does not list your GPS then click the "Find Device" button.

Updating the maps can resolve issues with missing streets, or the unit being off entirely(roads are updated throughout the world on a constant basis). Keeping your software up to date is always recommended.

Firmware upgrades will help resolve issues in the operating software, and may even help GPS problems you are experiencing. If not, you can perform a soft reset. As a last resort, you will want to perform a hard reset below.

Perform a hard/soft reset
A hard reset will reset the device back to factory defaults. This will also delete any of your personal favorites saved on the device.

Soft Reset

Slide the power button to the left and hold in this position for 8 seconds. Push the switch to the right to power the GPS back on.


Hard Reset
Turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the GPS screen. Continue to hold while powering on the GPS. you should now have a prompt asking you to erase all data. Select Yes. Afterwards, it is recommended that you leave the GPS outside somewhere safe to acquire a GPS signal. Once this is done, you can update the GPS using the update steps described at the beginning of this article.

I put oin a new address , hit Go and my Garmin nuvi just keeps re routing me back to where I am.


Hi Nancy,

You might try a "RESET" to solve this problem:

Turn your Garmin on WHILE pressing bottom right corner of the screen. This will reset your data back to factory defaults. This will remove favorites, vehicles, etc. - but maps will remain.


Next, install the latest Garmin firmware for your GPS. This can solve a lot of "strange" problems:

Go Garmin's WebUpdater Page, click on "Step 1 DOWNLOAD", from there choose the Operating System on your computer and either run or save the file, install this software and then run the software with your Garmin connected to the computer.


Difficulty typing? Try a screen recalibration:

Turn your Garmin on WHILE pressing the top left corner of the screen. This will allow you to recalibrate your screen and holding the Use a pencil (instead of a finger) to touch the dots for the best accuracy.


If this was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" - Thanks & good luck!

My Garmin gets stuck on the garmin screen saying loading maps. I have tried to the reboot option of holding down the right corner power on and then click yes to erase maps however when i click yes nothing...


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that 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.
