The battery has died. Like all rechargeables it does not last forever.

Your options are to replace the battery (just search "nuvi 220 battery" for suppliers and instructions) or if you're thinking of updating the maps then it's cheaper to just replace the entire unit.

Check page 6:

CHILD LOCK button:
to activate the control panel lock,
press and hold the button for approximately 2 seconds.
When the symbol CHILD LOCK is illuminated,
the control panel is locked.
This means it is possible to prevent wash
cycles from being modified accidentally,
especially where there are children in the home.
To deactivate the control panel lock,
press and hold the button for approximately 2 seconds

My garmin nuvi 255w wont turn on


First check to see if your 12v power source is working by looking to see if the indicator light comes on while plugged in. If it dosent try obtaining a new cable. If it does the units battery has probably died and will need a replacement, some of the 2xx series were recalled. Try inputting your serial number to the wizard at this link here, you may be eligible for a free replacement.

Hope this helps

The GPS just stopped working, it does not turn on. I plugged it into computer USB and it still does not turn on. Thanks for your help.


Try obtaining another power cable and see if that is the issue, yours may be dead and not charge the unit. also some USB ports dont have enough power to charge/power a GPS so that may be what effecting that. If this dosent work i would recommend purchasing a new unit as your is not worth sending in for repair.

Hope this helps!

Try connecting the unit to the PC see if it powers, with 7xx series often the powered cradle will break so the unit dosent get power. A replacement can be obtained here

My garmin 1350T just shut off and will not turn back on

If your garmin nuvi shuts off and refuses to turn back on, even if you press the power button, then it means the battery is weak and cannot power on the nuvi. Try to take out the battery and reinsert it back it then try to turn it on to see if it will turn on, if it does not still turn on, then borrow a battery from a friend and use it to test your nuvi, if it powers on, then your battery is either weak or dead.
Insert the battery into another gps and charge it with another charger for about 2 hours to see if it will hold a charge, try to use it to power your nuvi on to see if it will work. If it works, then it means your charger was not charging it initially. That means the charger is bad and need to be replaced, but if the battery does not turn on your nuvi after charging it for about 2 hours, then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced.
Either ways both the charger and the battery need to be checked to know which of the two is faulty.
Carrying out the test will show you the faulty component and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one.
Hope this was helped you.

My gps is not turning on. I tried to charge but there is no signal. Can you please help me?

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.

Nuvi 350 wont charge with car adaptor. But charges with ac charger in usb port of Nuvi. Any thoughts? I have another Nuvi 350 that does charge with this ones car adaptor.

Are you using the same port on the Nuvi to connect the car adapter and the ac charger, or two different ones? If not, then the jack could be broken (solder joint, pin?).
