Try resetting the unit and also charge it using only the wall charger overnight. Here's how to reset -it just puts everything back to factory settings - 1- Turn unit on WHILE HOLDING your thumb in the lower right corner as shown in picture. 2-Select YES PLEASE Take the time to vote me up this is my only reward for trying to help. Thanks

For the 1390:

  1. If the device is already connected to the computer, press and hold the power button to restart the device. If the device is disconnected from the computer, start with the device off and press and hold to power on.

  2. While the device is booting up, press and hold the upper-left corner of the screen for 30 seconds.

    If the device is already plugged into the USB, your computer may indicate that it has recognized the device is plugged in. At that point, release the screen.

    If the device is unplugged, the calibration screen may display. Now, plug the device into the computer's USB port. A green status bar will start loading as the device prepares to connect to the computer.

  3. Once the status bar indicates full scale, the computer symbol will show on the device's screen indicating that it is ready to connect to the computer. If you are not already plugged into the computer, then plug the device in via USB cable. This should enable recognition between the computer and the device.
From here you should be able to access the Garmin device, properly recognized by your computer as a GPS device. You will also be able to use the Communicator plugin on the Garmin site or the Webupdater software.

Updating maps on garmin nuvi 1390t. Won't take 4g/sdhc card


You are correct. The 1390t works with microSD cards. While microSDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible.
You need to use microSD cards 2GB and smaller.

Garmin nuvi 1390t won't read or recognize microsd


The 1390t works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work in older devices.
You need to go with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Microsd card won't read


You need to use a microSD card, not a microSDHC card. microSD cards max out at 2GB, anything larger is a microSDHC.

How do I restore the qwerty keyboard to my 1390T?


Contact Garmin at https://support.garmin.com/support/searchSupport/escalateForm.htm . They will send you a zip file with the complete keyboards folder and directions to restore to your unit. Mine was missing altogether after I lost the maps too. It was easy to copy to the gps unit and now the qwerty keyboard is back again.

My husbands garmine nuvi 1390 is stuck on the loading maps screen. We have tried shutting it down but it stays on the map screen


PRobably needs a firmware restore. Go to Garmin Reset. If it fails you need a new logic board. If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult.
