I'm not sure what you mean by "cannot get the sounder to power up". Are you not getting power to theGSD20, or are you not getting the sounder to display on the screen? I can probably help you with this but I need some more information.

If you are getting power to the GSD 20 sounder, it will have a flashing LED next to the cables that plug into the GSD 20 box. What color is it and what is the flash pattern (how many flashes, and fast or slow?) When you power up the GSD20 does the color or flash pattern change.

I'll watch for your response here.

Where you plug in to charge is broke


Hi.

If you broke the lighter socket on car dash, replace it.

If you broke the cable replace the cable. Here the spare:Garmin Power Cables

If you instead damaged the power socket on your Garmin, call the Garmin number listed in the owners manual. The Sat Nav must be sent to Garmin for repair:Garmin ' Contact

Next time use a Suction Mount Windscreen Holder

Regards.

Hello,

Be sure to update the firmware by running the Garmin WebUpdater.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

It is not necessary to unplug the vehicle power cable as the unit will shut down automatically if the vehicle power source is not supplying power after the vehicle is turned off. If the vehicle power cable does continue to supply power, then a manual shut down can be done with the power switch on the nuvi but it is still not necessary to disconnect the vehicle power cable.

I power my nuvi 255w on and it says loading maps but doesnt and it makes a beep and powers off. there is no reset button on this unit and i don`t know what to do to get it to come on and stay on? ty


Hold the power button for more than 20 seconds till it restarts - this is a soft reset. Then try again.

If that doesn't help, do a master reset which clears all user data back to the factory state. From powered down, turn the Garmin on while holding the right bottom corner of the screen for at least 20 seconds. A question should appear if all user data should be cleared. Then try again.

When it works again I would suggest to update the software in there till the latest version available on Garmin.com

Hello,

First, I would suggest you reset the unit,if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your garmin nuvi, I think its out of date and needs to be updated. Follow the procedures below on how to update your garmin nuvi:

1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB.
2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: "http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 "
3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults).
4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.

Also, in case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Concerning the parts, you can order for the adapter from this amazon link; http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B004AL7B7K/randomize0d-20

For the USB, visit; http://www0.shopping.com/garmin-usb-cable/products?IVD=1

Or contact Gamin via email or phone and request for the Adapter and other accessories needed. They should send it to you or direct you to a dealer closer to your vicinity where is can be gotten.

Visit; http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontact

Good luck.

Brand new Garmin nuvi 755t won't power up.


i have had the same problem obviously. all i did was get a TORX TX5 screw driver and open up 2 screws. carefully lift off the cover(its just snapped in). Warning: battery and speaker are attached to the cover so do not pull the cover off or it will break the wire. carefully unplug the battery and leave it out for a 20 mins or so. plug it back in and it should power up and then connect it to internet, download webupdater and update. thats it and the problem is fixed.

Garmin 178C Stays on for 20 secs then turns off


I had the same problem. In your settings you can set this thing to monitor your battery's power so it auto shut down if your battery goes below 11.2 volts or so. I disabled this and it has worked ever since.
