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.

Try resetting your unit with the reset button on the bottom. If this doesn't work, slide the power button all the way to the left and hold it for 8 seconds.

Garmin 305 wont power on, wont charge on cradle


Same thing happened to mine. Put the unit in the cradle (just like you are going to recharge it) and press the reset and mode button at the same time for 3 seconds. This will "wake" the unit up.

Garmin Nuvi won't turn on


See if you can find the reset button on the unit and push it while the unit is on. On newer units the reset button is on the back, but on older units it may have a faceplate cover around the edge of the screen you have to remove and the reset button is sometimes located under the faceplate...this may work

Garmin c550 GPS-Won't turn on at all.


push and Hold the power button down while you push reset, keep power button pressed til it boots again. If it does not, and it's in warranty ship it to garmin. If it's out of warranty, have someone open it up and remove the battery for a couple of minutes.

could the battery be dead? Leave it to charge on the wall charger for several hours. Then try again. There is a way to do a hard reset....

Hold down Menu and Find buttons at boot, you will get a screen like this. That should tell you if your cornice drive is working or not. a516539.jpg
If it does not, then either you have to send the unit in to Garmin to fix for $275 or try fixing it by your self, I'm trying to fix one my self. I will post when I'm done either way :)

Garmin is frozen on, and will not respond.


Have you tried resetting the unit? Remove the faceplate and press the reset button on the right side of the unit. This may help.

GPS screen went blank


My problem exactly. Unit would start up, acquire satellites, then the screen would go blank with a single vertical line. Unit would not respond to buttons or even turn off. Unit works fine after I did the reset:

- w/unit OFF, press and hold QUIT+DOWN+MENU
- press and release the power button, release DOWN, keep holding QUIT+MENU for 5 seconds.
- unit prompts something like: "erase all data;" choose yes.
- you will lose waypoints, etc.

Go to the Garmin support area for details.
