Hello, I currently own a Garmin quest myself, and some time ago I had some strange problems myself, I am a electronics technician, and I do have a work around for you. I will explain the problems and a cure for you to try, none of the work arounds depend on any parts to be removed.

1. NO RECEIVING SATELLITE TELEMETRY. I beleieve this could be due to a number of reasons, but more so at sometime corrupted telemetry was the problem to fix this,
a turn GPS on when booted (initialised)
b. depress menu
select settings
select Time Setup
when in Time Setup depress MENU
Select SET DATE
Depress OK button
Depress OK button again on the numberic keypad that appears on the screen (DONE)
what this seems to do is resets the internal date/time clock and the unit starts to work again.
the Second workaround is this but takes hours to perform.

Simply turn the Guest on and allow the battery to fully discharge, usually this works to TOTALLY flush the Memory again, but on my unit I have to setup all the maps again, this is easy to perform, but just takes time. I hope this helps you.
phil

Magellan roadmate 3055 freezes?


Hello , let's try and tackle this: This is normal, this come straight of the satellite. To speed up process or bypass, reboot system. To Manually reboot this model, turn unit off like normal. Then when turning on, keep button down as it fires up, DO NOT release on button, keep it down until all fires up and even about 10 seconds passed, then let go. This reboots it and cleans up a lot of ****. Thanks Mike. Please if this helps, please give me 4 thumbs up, to help me and others. Add a comment

Try manually rebooting, turn it off. Then when your turn it back on, keep button or switch down as it turns on and keep it depressed for about 15 seconds even as it is booting up. Then try it. Thanks Mike

No turn on gps garmin


I had this happen to me on one occasion with a nuvi 1300. Pressing the power button any number of times would not turn on the unit. Also, plugging in the car charger did not turn on the unit or charge it either.
I found that holding the power button for 10-15 seconds forced the unit to reboot, and it started just fine after that.
Since then, I've had an even more irritating issue, 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 those out and see if you have any better luck.

WILL NOT TURN ON


try the reset button/switch:
Magellan Maestro models - the location of reset button is on the left, right, or bottom side inside a small hole. Use an object to apply pressure to depress the reset button. Also try holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit off and again holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit on.

If the unit continues to freeze, update to the latest firmware update
. Firmware updates are located on Magellan's support page. On Magellan's support page select your product family, model, and then press the submit button. Firmware updates are located in the updates/upgrade section

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!

FROZEN SCREEN


By David707,
Since posting ma last re: Screen Freezing on external charge; I did manage to get the system back to some normality by pressing the Reset button located underneath the GPS Antenna flap. However this is likely to delete personally stored data on the system.
I should also state that the same problem occurs when I connect the 610 t my PC via the USB connection (another way to externally charge the battery).
A more satisfactory answer required though.

Suddenly turning off


Your battery is dead. You'll need to return it to Garmin for repairs. Mine did the exact same thing. Functioned fine in the cradle - showed full battery - but shut off immediately upon removal. They know about the problem and shipped me a new unit for free.

Garmin c330 freezing


I am happy to say my problem seems to have been solved. I found 3 possible solutions during my search - may need to try all of them to see if it works. 1) Reset by pressing the button under the faceplate. (Did not work for me). 2) Master reset - switch off the unit and press on the right bottom corner of the LCD and switch it on. Release the power button when it powers on, while pressing on the R lower corner. This is supposed to erase all prior data. I could not master reset my unit, for whatever reason. 3) Software update: http://www8.garmin.com/support/collectio... If you are a windows user you will want software version 2.4.1 as of April 3 2007. This worked for me. Thanks.
