Garmin Nuvi 1490T "Loader Loading"

I tried applying the latest update with administrator rights on my cpu. After indications that the installation was complete, I used the normal safely remove hardware procedure I disconnected the unit from the cpu. The 1490T entered a "Loader Loading" state and has remained in that state since. I tried powering off / on several times but the state only changes temporarily and still is not recognizable on the cpu since trying to implement the change.

How do I get this resolved? I had the power off issue that has been increasing in frequency, which was why I was trying to implement the software fix in the first place.

SOURCE: garmin c510 software update

You don't say if you tried resetting the 510 after the update.

To do a reset remove the grey faceplate trim piece.  Along the right side of the screen there is a reset button. Press the reset button then plug the 510 into a power supply. The 510 should automatically power up and reboot.

It's possible that the update was corrupted when it was downloaded, or there is a problem with the processor. If you can't get your GPS to reboot, your PC wont recognise the GPS and you'll probably have to send the unit out for service.

If you have already tried the reset please rate as "thanks for trying"

SOURCE: update problem with Garmin Nuvi 255w

I had same problem. I called Garmin customer service who connected me to a computer rep. Garmin hooks with your computer that you have your Garmin plugged into.They can upload the proper software in no time at all.
The rep told me that after I updated my Garmin I might have turned off the unit before it completed updating the new software. You need to wait until the screen with "Where to?" appears.
It works great now. Prepare to wait on hold for a while. I waited just over an hour on Monday, their busiest day.

SOURCE: SISTEM SOFTWARE MISSING on my Garmin NUVI200 GPS

All Garmin users,

There is no easy solution for this except to return your unit to the nearest Garmin outlet. You need to have very special equipment called an E-Prom burner or writer which only Garmin have. With this equipment they re-programmed (restore) the operating system back on your specific Garmin unit and model.

The problem why anybody can't do it is because there is no way you can access your Garmin unit from a pc or mac if the operating system is lost or damage on your Garmin, for the simple reason your pc or mac can't reconize the device that is pluged in, because there are no communication platform between the two devices.

As simple as that, life with it or send your Garmin gps to an autherized professional Garmin dealer.

SOURCE: Touchscreen not responding.

There are three levels of fixes, please try them in order:
1. Reset the GPS using the Reset button, on the back, just under the Antenna Hinge. Resetting will turn off the GPS, and then turn it back on, if connected to power. Test, if fixed, great, otherwise, go to fix 2.
2. Turn the power off, then press and hold the powerbutton for up to 2 minutes. The GPS will turn on, and display a "PreBoot Mode" message. When that message disappears, and the screen calibration screen appears, follow the on-screen instructions, and you are fixed. If you still cannot use the touch screen, repeat fixes 1 and 2 several times, just to be sure., then go to fix 3
3. The touch-screen glass has probably broken or lost its connection with the GPX motherboard. You can order new touch screen glass on the web and install yourself, if you are techy in nature, otherwise do a search for "garmin nuvi 660 repair" and choose your service.

How do i set up my garmin nuvi 1490T udates on a different computer


I assume that since you've successfully updated your GPS previously (from your question), you must have a Garmin account, registered your unit and Garmin Express installed.

With GE installed on your new computer, you should have no difficulty continuing to update your nuvi.

Does your Garmin Nuvi 1490 GPS get stuck or freeze at startup, or when loading maps?

Looking to reflash the firmware / system software for your Garmin GPS device?

Replacing the brains of your Garmin GPS is the surest way to resolve freezing, hanging, and erratic behavior. Keeping the system software and firmware in your Garmin GPS current and up-to-date is also the best way to keep it performing well.

Your GPS may not start properly at all, and display a 'System Software Missing" message. This tip will describe how to restore your Garmin Nuvi GPS system software using Garmin Webupdater.

My Garmin stopped accessing satellites. When I power up it records the correct location and time by will not acquire staellites. If I hold the right lower corner and power up reset several times it will...


Try updating the satnav operating system. While this does not always solve your problem very often it does. To update your operating system download and install the latest version of WEBUPDATER to your computer from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27

Connect your satnav to your computer and run WEBUPDATER. It will search for updates. Install all updates it finds. When they are installed it will find optional updates for your satnav also. You don't have to install these unless you wish to.

I hope this solves your problem.

My garmin 1490t have no sound.the sound is activated. thanks


I would suggest you install the latest updates from the Garmin WebUpdater, and then continue on in the WebUpdater to install English-Jill voice, and set your Garmin GPS to Auto/Car mode (not pedestrian mode), and set the voice to English-Jill, and hopefully your sound will work after that (mine did....).... :)

Screen frozen so I restarted and I get opening Garmin screen and "loading maps"


The unit will need to be sent in for replacement. First try a Firmware update using Garmin Webupdater. Its a free download from www.garmin.com If that doesn't work contact your dealer.

Garmin Nuvi 1300 (and 1490T) won't start up


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.

To update to the latest requires buying a map update. Too expensive in my book. Garmin does have a POI loader utility that you can get at their site. Various web sites have POI listings that can then be installed. You can also find individual POI listings for such things as all Walmarts at a company's web site.
