A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, 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.

Did you make a reset? that could be a trouble with the signal then like the mobile sometimes by retreiving the battery if you have it during a minute and put it on again my brings the solution (pragmatic).

SOURCE: My GPS is not turning on. I tried to charge but

Are you trying to charge it with a car charger?
My Nuvi 1300 wouldn't start one day, and I tried connecting it to the car charger, and it still wouldn't turn on or charge.
I connected it to a PC via USB, and it would start up for purposes of data transfer, but after disconnecting it, it still wouldn't start. I found that you have to hold the power button for 10-15 seconds in order to force the unit to reboot. I've since found that connecting the unit to the PC was also an important if not necessary step. The last issue I had with my nuvi 1300, would not resolve itself until I plugged it into the PC, let it start up, and then unplugged it, in addition to holding the power button for 10+ seconds.

Was your gps outside when you tried to get a signal? Not all can process the signals indoors. What did the screen look like when you turned it on?

Acquiring satellites


The problem might be that your GPS is not able to connect to the satellite.
I'll see what the problem might be.

My Tom Tom cannot find a GPS signal or sattelite signal. It has been working fine but is no longer able to find a signal or where i am. i have turned it on and off and can navigate through all the pages...


When was the last time you updated the QuickFix of your TomTom? It helps your GPS to find the satellites.

Please, do the following:

1) Install "TomTom Home" software in your computer from www.tomtom.com
2) Start TomTom Home in your computer
3) Plug in the GPS dock to your computer's USB port and place the GPS on the dock. The green light on the bottom right of the GPS should turn ON to indicate that the GPS is getting power from the dock and charging
4) Start your GPS while being in the dock. If the GPS asks "do you want to connect to computer" answer "YES"
5) The TomTom Home software will detect the GPS and check if there are any updates for it. Then you'll be offered updates to install. Some are free, some are not. You choose the ones you want to install.
Please, report back if you need further assistance

No valid GPS signal for two days, what I can do?


You can try a reset Check in the manual where the reset hole is i thinlk this model is under the scfreen surround which is removable.

This will take ut back to factory settings, you might want to check if its set to the right PORT and BAUD try this

GPS Program Port: COM1
GPS Hardware Port: COM9
Baud Rate: 4880
Manage GPS Automatically (Ticked)


Now other reasons are low battery= low signal//fully charge the battery


no signal from satellites= damaged SIIRF chip caused by plugging into car power when starting engine...needs new m/board

Maximum time to access 1-9 minutes max...

Loses GPS signal and never reconects. I can be driving along and it loses signal and fails to to regain even if I switch off and on again Aparantly it is poor gps conection so wont connect but this happens...


A few things that cause drop out.

Poor vicinity for a strong signal
A low battery ***** must be fully charged The DC is only maintenance charging and eventually goes flat.
A damaged SIIRF CHIP caused by starting the engine whilst the GPS is plugged in.
A failked fuse to keep battery charged for maintenance in the DC charge unit.

Try recharging battery( or replacing it if 2 years or more of age)
