    nvx226 worked fine yesterday... today when turned on with main switch only shows blue audiovox screen, won't go any further nor turn off holding power switch on front. Only turn off with main switch on bottom. Tried 'reset' several times even holding it in a long time, taken out SD card... it recognized it was out but that didn't fix it when I put it back in. Is there a connection cord I could get and insert it in the 'data' port and update via internet? HELP.... thanks, janecoll

Garmin 1450 LMT Not loading past Garmin logo

The USB will not be recognized until the unit boots to the main screen. This is where the subroutine scans for the insertion of the USB cable. In order to fix this problem, you have to access the flash drive directly, bypassing the standard boot-up. The drive must be properly formatted, otherwise the Nuvi can not write to the flash drive on boot-up and will either go into a boot-up loop or stay stuck at the Garmin logo. Accessing the flash drive must be accomplished in pre-boot mode. there are several programs out there that can do this. Once the drive is properly formatted, the unit will boot, create the Garmin folder, write a few other folders and files and boot-to the main menu. Now, you can connect the cable as usual and start copying over your backed up files. I've repaired this issue many times.

Do you need to update the maps in the audiovox nvx226 gps reciever if so how

Audiovox got into the GPS business almost as an afterthought, they have virtually no customer support and have never released any updated maps, I get asked this same question allot, also have contacted them myself and found they have no future plans to release any map update software, u can't just use any MAP download, if it is not compatible with the software of your unit it will lock the unit up and you are done, new GPS time, if you want a GPS that have regular map releases TOMTOM and GARMIN are your best choice.

Fatal error, unable to open application database

Have you tried the reset button? It would be found on the lower right side on the rear panel. Don't really know if this will fix your particular problem, but it might be worth a shot.
