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.

The XC0369 weather station when used in the Southern hemisphere has the solar cell used to charge the batteries facing away from the sun when aligned north.


if you can --put the solar panel horizontal so that it doesn't matter where the sun is
the solar panel works from ultraviolet rays and not direction so if you are doing what you are there is another problem with assembly

How to charge


You can use a usb cord to charge it with your computer or purchase a car charger charging it while using it in you auto. Charging with computer is best done overnight. This is good way to test the battery as it should hold charge for couple hrs or more after charging with your computer. Also a/c wall charger is availible as another option. Any of these cords can be found at www.GPSnStuff.com Hope this helps

I have tom tom 520 since last three years, but not used most often. if i disconnect from the charger or computer, its batter sign starts blinking. even when it is blinking, battery is half full. i dont...


Possibly from leaving the gps charging too long the battery may not be able to hold a charge. Best suggestion would be to always use with car charger when you travel with it.

Do i have to charge gps in car before first use . brand new want to make sure i dont ruin life of battery


No, When your using the GPS with the car adapter, its running on an external power source. The battery charge status is unimportant at this point. To charge the battery just move and hold the on/off switch to the left until the screen says "Charging Battery" and then release the switch.

Will not turn on


If it does not turn on when you plug it into the computer, yes, it sounds like you may have a dead battery. Your best bet would be to contact Garmin as to how to get it replaced.

Garmin c340 does not charge


I came here looking for solution and tried the "press eraser in bottom right corner and turn on" but didn't work for mine BUT if you look at the face plate (the part on the front that says "Garmin",) just under the word "Garmin" you see a small indent in the plastic, useing your finger nail, gently pull upwards and the face plate will come up. Also, be gentle while pulling the face plate being careful not to break it. ( I advise that you use your nail and not anythng that might scratch the plastic if you are intending on returning the unit, cause they may suggest that you tampered with it and that "voids the warrenty") Anyway, look at the USB plug (above the ON button on the side) and you see a tab, press it and the unit will reset.

Seems to me that with all the problems Garmin has had with their units freezing up that I should have found this solution on the garmin site! To think that there are people who will throw there unit away because of this problem OR who will pay 150.00 bucks to get it fixed through Garmin.

Internal battery won't charge


Common issue. Steps to troubleshoot/solve:
1. Pull off face, press reset tab.
2. If unit wont turn on or if turns off immediately, connect to home computer using mini usb on side of gps (any usb cord that fits will do). This will charge the internal gps battery, which is discharged.
3. You will not be able to see the gps charge indicator while the usb cord is plugged into the unit. To check charge level, disconnect it, turn it on, and note the large "battery" icon.
4 Do you have a dead internal battery? If the gps holds a charge from your computer usb port, you don't.
5. If you have a dead battery, Google DIY replacement. With some soldering it can done for $15 total.
6. If you don't have a dead battery, the issue is charging from the cigarette lighter socket. Your car socket may have blown a fuse (check car manual). Your charger unit may have blown a fuse (unscrew the tip, check fuse inside). Also, some car sockets don't work when the ignition is off. Test yours.
7. There is a good chance the connection of the charger wire to the gps cradle is the problem. Fiddle with that. Replacement cradles are available for the c340 at about $25.
8. If your unit is not charging from the cradle/socket, buy a 12v usb cord. Plug into socket and into usb port of the gps. This is a workaround or alternative to buying a new cradle.
9. IMPORTANT: observe the "battery" icon while driving, esp. if you have doubts about charging. Basically, if you can see the icon, you're not connected to an outside (car or computer) power source. That is, if you can see the battery-charge indication, it means your battery is currently discharging and unless you get another power source to work it will be dead in a few hours.
