Question about GPS

1 Answer

My Garmin nuvi 200 stoped working so I went to get new batteries for the cord. They tried to replace them but the Garmin still did not work. They sold me a universal cord with a plug that goes with the Garmin nuvi. It would show a picture of a battery and would not let me access any information. When I unpluged it, it would work. Now when I unplug it it does not work only the Garmin name appears. It starts to load maps then shuts off. I think it needs to be replaced. I bought it in November of 2007, so it is still under warrenty. Sincerely, Christina Madden

    Mine worked for a while but started turning itself off right after showing the "Loading Maps..." screen.  Every time I turn it on, it turns itself off at the same point.

I had the same problem with my Nuvi 760 turning itself off right after the "Loading Maps..." screen but I found the answer in the Q&A section on Garmin's website.  It's actually very simple and you'll kick yourself...  Charge it up all the way!  It does that when the battery is really low.

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.

My 2 yr old Garmin nuvi 200 was working fine...when I got home and turned the car off, it quit working and won't turn back on. I keep it plugged into the lighter, so it's not battery power.


No it's not the battery power: your nuvi has suffered the firmware equivalent of a stroke.

Garmin Nuvi 200 Voice no longer working


Does your Nuvi 200 have a headphone jack? If so, try that with a pair of headphones. If you hear sound, then your internal speaker went bad. It's a known problem with the Nuvi.

Garmin Nuvi 350 GPS, not working


Hello, Here was my problem. I was traveling at 60mph yesterday and my Nuvi 360 dislodged and fell down with a huge impact inside my car. I came home and tried to look for any damage. Unfortunately Nuvi had stopped to continue beyond loading maps screen. I tried rebooting , but the problem persisted. It would take me to reboot screen, but after screen calibration, when it came to loading map screen, again went blank. I tried this and just simple starting by pushing power button several times but to no avail. I called technical support, eho advised me to to just simply connect it to my labtop and leave it that way for 3 to4 hours. Bingo!, in the next 30 mins, I accidentally switched my laptop top off, but Nuvi had started to work all fine.
