Cannot find Spain on my sat nav!! It includes europe but when I go to change country to spain it wont let me and its also not included in the list of countries.


Check out garmin website for help, its pretty good and has free downloads such as icons, themes so you can personalise your satnav. If spain is not listed try connecting the device to a pc and check and see if irt is listed in the map directory.

After 5 minutes the unit turns off by itself. Need to stay powered down for a while to start back. Works 5 minutes...or less and then again.


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.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 260 and I just purchased a City Navigator Europe N/T data card. I inserted the card and didn't see anything that showed it was added. Do I need to be in Europe for it to work or do I...


As long as you can see the software on the list of Maps, you'll be fine. It wont show any maps right now because there are no European maps for your present location, you need to be in Europe for the maps to show on the screen.

Nuvi Blackout


This is a known problem that Garmin is fixing. Look at:

http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support

Under "TOP FAQ" there is an entry for "My nuvi 755T, 765T, 775T or 785T will no longer turn on."

You will need to return your unit to Garmin for them to fix it.

My garmin nuvi 350


I have the same problem and tried updating firmware but that didn't seem to help. I tried factory resets and other "fixes" then I read another article on fixya http://www.fixya.com/support/t1100930-nuvi_360_cannot_acquire_sattelite

I followed the advice to put a wire into the external antenna receiver.
I used some torn apart cat 5 ethernet.
By inserting the wire into the middle it started finding satellites.
At this point that seemed to wake my nuvi up and it doesn't need the wire anymore.

If a GPS gets a factory reset, powered off for months, or powered up again in a different country, it will eventually scan the sky for any satellite it can find, and then download a new almanac and ephemeris - which can take up to 12 minutes after it finds the first satellite. This is best done stationary, to minimize the doppler effect until a fix is acquired.
