Question about GPS

1 Answer

I have the garmin nuvi 755t and it went completely dead. I replaced the battery and it started to work for 2 minute intervals. I reset it many times and it seemed to work after a few hours. But today my wife plugged it into the computer to update the maps and now it will not turn on. any suggestions?

Hi. It seems that some 700series are having power problem. Please check Garmin's website for more info about this issue http://iqc.garmin.com/eCustomer/KODSelfService/request.do?create=kb:garmin&view%28%29=c{dc1fbbc0-6187-11de-69a8-000000000000}

    You may also try doing this. This guy, sherjatt, said it work for him and the other guy, stevetefft, said the solution worked for him.

    "i have had the same problem obviously. all i did was get a TORX TX5
    screw driver and open up 2 screws. carefully lift off the cover(its
    just snapped in). Warning: battery and speaker are attached to the
    cover so do not pull the cover off or it will break the wire. carefully
    unplug the battery and leave it out for a 20 mins or so. plug it back
    in and it should power up and then connect it to internet, download
    webupdater and update. thats it and the problem is fixed."

    If no luck with this solution, I suggest you contact Garmin and see if they will accept RMA of your unit since it is affected with the power issue.

Garmin Nuvi 755t Stuck in power up cycle


You can do two things.

First, plug the GPS in overnight in a regular USB charger. If the battery charges up, then the problem is with your Garmin vehicle cable.

If it does not charge up, you can buy a battery replacement kit for it: https://www.amazon.com/Garmin-Nuvi-755-Replacement-Installation/dp/B003VFSR4M

My garmin 1300 went completly dead while on a route with the power cord attached. Unpluged tried again . Now its working. Is this normal?


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, 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.

Garmin 755T Issue - Firmware Update and acquiring satellite


Hi Bob,
You need to do a complete reset by turning it on and at the same time press the bottom right hand corner of the screen this will reset it to factory condition. having done that when you switch it on again leave some where where it has a clear view of the sky and leave it for about 1/2 an hour. This should sort it out for you. Best of luck.

Nuvi Blackout


This is a known problem that Garmin is fixing. Look at:

http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support

Under "TOP FAQ" there is an entry for "My nuvi 755T, 765T, 775T or 785T will no longer turn on."

You will need to return your unit to Garmin for them to fix it.
