Question about Garmin nuvi 880 Car GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I really don't know how to explain this but I'll try. Nothing is wrong with the garmin unit itself but the receiving female portion that clips onto the ball is broke. The small clips which hold the GPSto the plactic holder have broke off. I would like to purchase the insert which is held on with a very small phillips screw. Can you help or give me direction.

Hello Bill, i understand your problem, but i think what you will have to do mate is either go to Garmin's website and order a new one as i dont think they would sell the broken item seperately, or go to a local shop that sells Gps equipment and maybe they can help you.

HOW TO UNLOCK GARMIN


Garmin cannot be unlocked unless you know the pink or the security location where the pin was initially set. If you don't know any of these two, your unit has to go to Garmin so they can remove it. There phone number is 1-800-800-1020. Garmin Lock is designed to prevent theft and it works really well. There are no cracks to by the system either. Sorry.

Deleted my garmin nuvi 1300 preloaded maps by accident and don't know how to get them back


I believe the only way to delete them is if it was connected to your computer. If so and the map is in your recycle bin you can just connect the Garmin back up to your computer a go into the recycle bin and hit restore. If that is not possible and the unit is new you can try a map update from the Garmin site, or try contacting them an explain the situation. I will attach the links for you. Thanks for using FixYa.

I bought a second hand nuvi 1310 about a year ago, and now the unit is saying it needs map updates and updates for speed cameras. Where can I obtain these updates?


The manufacturer offers updates at their website. Here is the link for the update page: http://www8.garmin.com/updatemaps/

You'll need to plug your Nuvi into your PC (it uses a mini-USB to USB data cable), and the website detects which unit you have and which updates are available for it. You'll have to download "MyGarmin Agent" and/or Garmin's Communicator Plugin first, if you don't already have them installed on your computer. It's a good idea to have a MicroSD card plugged into your Nuvi before connecting it to your PC (The Nuvi and the memory card each show up as removable drives in My Computer). Otherwise, if the unit is too low on memory when you attempt to update, you'll either have to get a MicroSD card to expand the available memory, or deal with reduced map data coverage.

Unfortunately, I don't believe the updates are going to be free for you -- Garmin has very specific conditions in order to qualify for an update at no charge. Don't quote me on that, though.... Not knowing all the specifics on your unit or it's purchase, I can't say for sure. I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya.

Good luck

My Garmin 1450 doesn't speak street names. Currently have the female english voice (same as in my 265T)


Hello,

Try giving your unit a firmware update using Garmins WebUpdater software, it can be obtained from this link http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp. And when you have your voice language selected there should be an female name attached, it would either be Karen or Jill.

Hope this helps!

Garmin wrong location


Sounds like it needs to be reset and download a new 'catalog' and time set. That will then allow it to figure out where it really is. Check your manual for doing a hard reset. Might involve pulling the battey or holding the power switch on that model. Do this someplace where it can see the sky ie preferably outside and then reset and let it download and rest itself. It can take up to about 45 minutes for it to finish but after that you should be back to knowing where you are.

Garmin 650 won't hold charge in car -- same problem


Check power at the 12volt outlet to insure that you power is on at the connection. Try using a 12 volt convertor in the house to check the cord used in the vehicle.

I CAN'T TURN ON MY MAGELAN ROADMATE 3000T


I lost the ability to charge mine after the female piece of the adapter on the unit itself was worn after a year of use. The company has been clueless, and three attempts to urge them to simplify my efforts to fix this have all met with frustration. They suck at Magellan. I threw it in the trash and bought a Garmin.
