My nuvie 660 screen freezes, sometimes it works on startup, sometimes not. When it works on start up, it freezes as soon as I start to move


If you press the on/off power switch and can toggle the screen, then he unit isn't locked up at all. The touchscreen is either intermittent or has failed and needs to be replaced. More info can be found here:

My garmin freezes on startup. Can't master reset


Hi,

You could try pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, try a master reset by:

Start with the unit off and unplugged from power.
  1. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  2. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit on.
  3. Release the power button when the device powers on.
    • You will see a new message: "Do you really want to erase all user data?"
  4. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  5. Touch "Yes"
  6. Restart the unit
Please let me know if it helps.
Thanks

My garmin 1350T keeps freezing what can i do to


Go to gamin site and download and install the latest software and firmware if any. To download WebUpdater and update the software:
  1. Go to http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
  2. Follow the on screen instructions.
To perform a master reset on your nuvi 1000 series device:

Warning: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.
  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers ON
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when the message ‘Do you really want to erase all user data?’ appears
  6. Touch Yes
The device will now be reset and you should no longer experience the freezing issue.

Garmin Nuvi 660 touch screen freezes up. Soft


I sat on the phone for 30 minutes waiting for Garmin support when my Nuvi suddenly had no touch screen response. They had me delete a file on the device (with it hooked to my computer) then reboot and it went thru a touch screen alignment and it worked.

Sadly, it has frozen again and I don't recall the file (it had been a GCD file in all caps, that is all I know and I don't see a file in all caps any more). I will be calling support tomorrow.

My take is that it *is* a firmware thing *and* there is some way to reset the firmware.

Garmani nuvi 780 freezes on "updating bluetooth firmware 0%" when turned on


Worked for me but not sure why, I had the same problem of freezing when updating Bluetooth firmware on a Nuvi 770. I chose to reset all user data (press lower tight hand of touch screen while powering on) and next reboot it updated firmware sucesfully. No idea why this worked.
