    I am having the same problem. Do you have to update the maps or is there some way you can bypass this screen and continue with the outdated maps for right now?

    As I posted, I hit the reset button to no avail. The screen just keeps going back to the map update notice.

Resetting Your c330
If your unit locks up, press the Power button to turn off the unit, then press again to turn the unit back on. If this does not help, reset your C330.
1. Place your thumb nail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the face plate.
2. Gently pull off the face plate.
3. Press the Reset button.
4. Turn the unit back on; it will operate normally

My Nuvi 650 screen reads "The following map data is more than a year oldand should be updated. When I touch the "OK" on the screen, nothing happens, it seems the screen has become unresponsive.


I would suggest some caution here. I have noticed a trend in anything that can be updated by the consumer---they just blindly do it and I have also seen as the result of this dozens of units crash and burn---if you have not issues and the unit functions why risk losing it?

Turn this unit off and see later if turned on it functions or not, failing that the only way out of the mess would be a call to the maker.

Don't just blindly say ok, kind of like getting a email with a virus and saying OK.

When I turn my Garmin 550 on it says loading maps, then goes to the select a local: It's frozen their on United States i push OK and nothing happens can not change the Locale it's frozen I tried...


Hi tkfranks331,

Press the power key and hold it if the screen of your Zumo is frozen. Keep holding the power key while pressing the key that has a plus symbol ("+") on it. This will reset your device and unfreeze the screen. You can also try calibrating the screen by pressing the power key for one full minute.

If this does not work, please follow these steps.

1. Update the internal disk software. Download and install WebUpdater on the computer. Please visit this link to download the WebUpdater.

2. Open WebUpdater on the computer.

3. Connect the Zumo 550 to the computer with its USB cable.

4. WebUpdater will automatically search for updates.

5. Follow the prompts to download any pertinent updates for the Zumo 550.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Garmin froze with a "Map Update Notice" the screen


The unit isn't frozen. If you tap the power button you will hear it beep and change screens. What has happened is your touchscreen has failed. This is a common problem. Your touchscreen needs replaced. If you want some troubleshooting info, please see this link. There is just too much info to retype here:

Frozen Screen


Mine does this from time to time. I pull the SD map card, power it off, and hit the reset button while the unit is unplugged. These units are notorious for this. But then again, they're inexpensive. No receipt ... well, you're pretty much stuck with it. No receipt, no return or repair.

Frozen screen and it says loader loading


Press the reset button - you'll find it on the lower right of the Nüvi 255, but it doesn't look like a button. It's basically the sticker with all the information on it. It's just enough to push the sticker carefully with something small, not too sharp so it doesn' get destroyed. The Nüvi reboots, the loader loads and proceeds with the software load. Once this is over, shut down the Nüvi and reconnect to the PC. Then, everything works fine (it did at least for me).

Powers up but then stops with a message


Turn on the Garmin and look for the little wrench. Press the wrench and now find Map. Press Map and look for Mapinfo. Press Mapinfo and verify that there is a check mark next to the Mapsource Map.

If you press Mapinfo and there is nothing, then your Mapsource upgrade did not go through.
