Have you tried charging the unit from the computer? This can sometimes help.

    If you cannot tell if it is charging, it is NOT charging. When the unit is plugged into the computer, is should turn on. Then it should display an image of the unit connected to a computer with a cable. If it is not doing this, it is not charging. It sounds like your battery may be done for. You might need to contact Garmin about replacing it.

    Where did you purchase it? Can you return it and get a new one? If you can, this would be your best bet. It is a great GPS, but not if it doesn't come on. :)

    Any time. I wish I could have done more for you. Good luck with it. Any problems in the future, let me know. :)

Find a local Garmin dealer - there's no way to reinstall system software once its missing essential parts to complete a startup.

Garmin allows updates in battery mode which can brick the GPS once it runs out of power during the update.

My tomtom 920 simply won't turn on, I used it yesterday and it was fine, though it did warn me that the battery is very low. I have charged it for 1hr but it still won't come on. What could be the problem...

The batery is finished, even if you plug it in the cigar lighter and the green light goes on, your TOMTOM will still not work when the batery is dead..get one real cheap on ebay.
Good luck

My 4250 stopped talking. I ran the diagnostic

Probably a bad speaker, common problem with GPS units. Is there any sound at all, have you tried calling your cell phone to see if you can hear the rig through the GPS?

Try that and if you still can't hear anything it could be the speaker.

You will need to replace the battery. Either you can buy one of garmin website or you can use a third party website. Be careful of using those because some of those batteries are refurbish.

Low battery, won't charge

connect the garmin to your computer using the usb port. It will start charging then. For some reason when the battery goes dead in this unit the only way to charge it is with computer. the car adaptor will not work once the battery gets real low.

Turn off garmin

I just find it unbelievable that there is no off button on this watch. I dont want to use it as an everyday watch..its too big and ugly for that.Also you have to remember to turn off the gps as it will drain the watch overnight.You have to switch the gps on every time you do a run. I simple on and off button is all that is needed.It is just a matter of turning it on when you go for a run and you are ready to go. Same with all 'latest ' products..they give you the improvement over the last model but give you a downside...which will probably be corrected on the next incarnation....very clever marketing.!

My garmin 340 suddenly stopped working

Ummmmm "Low battery"....... not too hard to figure out. You need to charge it for several hours. If the battery is low it WILL go out on you and during that time, the battery may recover enough to come on briefly then go off again. Please charge your battery!

Nuvi 205 voice stopped working

I had the same problem. I went onto and attached the Nuvi to the computer using a cord that I had for my blackberry phone. Once connected, I turned on the Nuvi and ran the update tool. The update tool will reinstall the voices. This seemed to work the first time. I have had to do this twice now since I received the Nuvi 205 on December 26, 2008 (it's February 13, 2009)

Nuvi 200 GPS

We did not have a charger to plug in the GPS to charge, so my husband plugged it into a battery charger. I guess the battery charger was low, so it drained the unit rather than charging it. It was so low it would not come on again. I have an electric charger that adapts the car charger into AC current, so I tried that and the unit came on. Problem solved and the GPS is working again. Thanks for responding.
