Device hangs up when loading maps.


Try performing a soft reset of the nuvi 1310 by holding the power button for at least 10 seconds until the unit powers up.

A hard reset can also be done.
To perform a hard reset :
Note: A hard reset will erase all waypoints or Favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings. If you would like to back up your Favorites to your computer, you can find instructions to do so here.

• Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
• Press and hold the lower right corner of the screen
• Continue pressing and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
• Release the power button when the device powers ON
• You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
• Touch Yes

Also, be sure that the nuvi 1310 has the latest software update by installing and running the Garmin WebUpdater program.
Load or reload the latest software update as this will usually resolve most issues.

You may also want to contact Garmin Support for assistance.

Garmin nuvi 1450 has no power and when plugged in only the "garmin" pops up and then says loading maps, then powers off, and then it repeats. what do i do?


the nuvi 1xxx had some issues with one of the firmware releases that caused the unit to do what your describing. Try giving it an update if you are able to connect it to your PC try giving the unit an update with Garmins WebUpdater Software, it can be obtained here from this link.

Hope this helps!

Wont stop loading maps

If your garmin nuvi wont stop loading maps, then you need to reaet the unit to get it to work perfectly fine once again. Try to hold down the power button for about 15 seconds and the gps receiver will restart, this time it will load normally and show you your maps.
If that does not solve the problem, then you need to back up your maps then format your gps receiver from a computer then restore the software and maps back on, that should do the job for you.
Hope this helps.

Garmin 765 turns on and sais loading maps then

I've had this issue on my Nuvi 1300, where holding the power button for 10-15 seconds would restart the unit, but it would freeze at the "loading maps." part. I ended up plugging the unit into my PC, which started it for purposes of data transfer. I then disconnected it from the PC and it restarted properly.
Try that out and see if you have any better luck.

When switched on it goes into loading maps then switches off. Also if I put it onto charge it shows up what appears to be a computer and lead then sticks. ac

The icon that you are seeing means its in data mode, not charge mode, so your unit is never having the chance to charge because there are broken leads on the mini-usb jack on the back. You unit powers up, then goes off because the battery isnt charged.

The mini-usb connector needs repaired.
