Hmmm I think your battery is worth having a look at. They often go bad for no apparent reason.

It won't turn on and even if i plug it into the computer or a ciagrette lighter nothing happens. it was working perfectly fine when i was using it and now i have absolutely nothing. it kept saying low...


Have you tried pressing and holding the power button for about 8 to 10 seconds? It should go on then off. Then wait a few seconds the turn it on normally. This usually resets the unit.
If this does not work try a hard reset.
Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.

Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.

Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite data.

Once it gets going update your gps at the Garmin site.

I cannot even get the device to turn on. The light on top comes on when I have had it plugged in to fully charge but it will not turn on. I have also tried to reset and still nothing. Is it completely...


if the battery has been completely flat, you need to press and hold the on button for a couple of seconds as opposed to just a quick push for normal start up. It will do a complete startup

My gps unit got stuck on a location and I turned it off and it won't turn back on I've held the power button down for a while but nothing


Look in the back of the unit for a reset button, this will be a small tiny button or maybe a small hole in the back with the word reset on it. If it is the hole then use a paper clip to to push the reset button. Note power must be on to reset the unit.

Lost gps and then found 6 months later and cant remember password


To reset your ONE XL, use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button. The reset button is next to the memory card slot, on the bottom of your ONE XL. Then turn your ONE XL on it will be back to it's factory settings.

Garmin Nuvi won't turn on


See if you can find the reset button on the unit and push it while the unit is on. On newer units the reset button is on the back, but on older units it may have a faceplate cover around the edge of the screen you have to remove and the reset button is sometimes located under the faceplate...this may work
