    try this first.Once your system boots to the user screen.. press + and repeat key at the same time.. "secret" menu now. ONLY IF YOU HAVE SOFTWARE TO INSTALL!! Select NAND FLASH FORMAT.. The unit will shut down after formatting. start up your software installer on computer. plug usb in.. and power on unit. This fix isn't %100, but it's the best shot you have. Otherwise you've gotta send it down here to Texas (where magellan repair is) and pay for the new hard drive. OR.. you could call customer service and see what they have to say. you'll probably be transferred to overseas.. then go with my other option

    --good luck with that

Hi,my garmin gps device have this problem: I power on the device and after a few minutes,the gps turn off,just shut down. This is a configuration problem or something else.


Hello,

If the unit completely turns off than there is an issue with it, if the screen dims but the unit is still running it may be in your display settings that you have it to automatically dim backlight to save power.

Hope this helps!

Please charge the unit with the vehicle power cable or on a computer for at least three hours. After charging the unit, it should power on and function normally. If the unit will not charge in the vehicle, check the fuse in the power cable for the unit and the power outlet in the vehicle.

If the battery is bad it must be sent in replacement.

Screen goes blank after locating sattilites.


Accordingto Garmin, this problem can be fixed by disabling the WAAS feature in teh set up menu. There is an incompatibility between the old Garmin software and latest WAAS upgrades. Later software from Garmin is supposed to fix this problem.

New 350 garmin, how long do I charge it Ac ?


Plug the charger into the mini-usb jack. The unit should turn on and when you come to the main menu, you should see a lightning bolt over the battery bar graph. This indicates that it is charging. If you don't plan on using it and want to charge it over night, if your Nuvi has a push down power switch on the top, press and hold it briefly until it goes to a black screen and says charging. If your Nuvi has a slide switch, slide it to the left until you get the same charging screen. A few seconds later, the screen will go dark but if you touch the screen, it will light up again and say its charging and go dark again. After several hours, when you go to touch the screen it will say Charging Complete". Yiu will also notice then when you go to use it, you will see ALL of the green bars on the battery bar graph will be lit. No, you can not overcharge it.

GPS V at startup it goes to second screen and shuts down leaving a line across the bottom of the screen.


I contacted Garmin and they actually researched the problem and got back to me with a solution a few hours later. I have already instituted it and it works. Here's what they suggested:

Thank you for contacting Garmin International. I will be more than happy to help you with this. The situation you described appears to come from a change in the WAAS system by the government. To correct this issue you must turn the WAAS off. To do this turn the unit on and press the menu button twice. Next highlight setup and press enter. Under the system tab, WAAS is located in lower right hand corner. Scroll down and over to highlight enabled, press enter and change to disabled. Engineering has been informed however due to the discontinued status of this unit we are not sure when ( or if ) a new unit software will be issued to correct this problem. I appologize for any inconvienience.

Hope this helps!

Unit shut down


I have run into the same problem and it may be related to the WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) feature. Try disabling this feature (under MAIN MENU / Setup). I used this receiver overseas (Asia and Europe) last year for 35 days straight with no problems. During this time WAAS was disabled as none of these satellites are visible overseas. The problem occurred intermittently prior to the overseas trip, and has reoccurred after returning. I was running into the same problem this past weekend and noticed the screen blanking out (with the vertical line) shortly after differential corrections were applied to the GPS signals. I disabled the WAAS and let the receiver run for over an hour. The problem did not return. Hope this helps.

Are you running this unit while it is charging? Does the Nuvi 660 have a sufficient charge?

Try to do a hard reset on the unit.

Screen goes blank


Maybe the setting of your video display was change to higher setting, and your screen cannot handle the said setting.

When a "safe mode" message appears during opeing, select that options, then at the desktop right click your mouse, chose properties, then setting, then change the screen resolution to lower range.
