Question about Garmin nuvi 1300 Car GPS Receiver

My Garmin nuvi occasionally will not turn on. There's nothing on the screen. A few days later it seems to come back and it's fine. Can you help me understand the situation and come up with a solution.

A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 255. I have had it for about a year. It has worked fine until we headed to Tulsa, OK from Columbus, OH. Most of the way there, it was fine, but about half an hour to an hour after we...


There is a reset button on the 255 i on the bottom right edge as the unit faces you, and is underneath the serial number sticker. You'll either have to peel the sticker up for access or poke a hole through it. This should get you going again. I am am also attaching a link to garmin support. Let me know how you made out. Thanks for using FixYa

Stop transfering voice from Sony Ericson P910i and Garmin Nuvi 660


Can you update the firmware on your unit
my k800i sony phone had a problem synchronising and would freeze, then one day the nuvi 660 updated the firmware by itself and has been fine since, only problem being the volume, a bit low when trying to contest with large diesel engine, onboard speaker keen to distort over 80% volume

Garmin nuvi won't turn on


folks, the garmins have an on-board battery that needs to be powered up (at least occasionally) via the usb port - like from your computer. just using the dc car power cord does nothing for this battery. i've had this exact same problem on both my 760 and 780 nuvi units. fixed it using the usb charge. seems to run down differently for all the various nuvi models. my regular charge will hold for 7 hours on my old 660, my 760 and 780 work about 5 hours. my 'power up' failed on the 660 after 10 months with no internal battery charge, but the 7xx models only took about 5-6 months to 'fail.' hope this helps. jack b :-) in midland, tx usa

He would not have nothing to say if you did not set a "where to"

Few words , you mean "turn right in 500 ft" . Its normal your unit type has only Voice prompts and not TTS (SPEAK STREETS NAMES) .

For your MP3 palyer it should work. Did you play with something in the setup.

Make sure you have the latest update 5.20.
Please use the GARMIN WEB UPDATER for best result.

I have being having similar problem as every one else. There is nothing wrong with your Nuvi. Garmin (the company is the problem) they are trying to make you buy a new map--Not Exactly Cheap--Do Hard Reset and solve all the problems.

1) Place a finger (Any finger, middle finger worked for me!) at the left lower corner and turn on the Nuvi unit a message appear saying "Do you really want to start up in maintenance mode?" tap Yes
2) At the Maintenace screen tap clear user data (this will restore to factory condition) and follow the instruction on adjusting your prefered setings.

3) turn it off and Repeat step 1, this time when you get to maintance screen tap on "Clear waypoints" and follow the instruction. Let it sit for about an hour then voila.
