Hi, if USB connection is OK, you have to make hard reset after that download firmware 3.40 by Uploader (no Garmin WebUploader). Your Co will startup but your data will be lost. Jean

Garmin nuvi 2639lmt logo flashing


Try a soft reset:

To reset the Garmin device, turn off the device by pressing the power button on the top of the device. When the unit is off, press your finger to the bottom right corner of the screen and continue holding while pressing the power button. A prompt will appear on the screen confirming data reset. Click Yes.

If that doesn't work, try a factory reset:

My garmin 265w doesn't start it just turns onto the garmin logo and that is a half screen


Hello,

Doing a soft reset on the nuvi will usually get the nuvi up and running.
If there is a reset button on the bottom, press and hold it until the nuvi powers back on. If it does not have the reset button on the bottom, slide and hold the power switch to the left for at least 10 seconds.
Also running the Garmin WebUpdater and reloading the latest update will resolve most issues.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

I have recently purchased the Garmin nuvi 765T and I have charged it and waited to use in the car but after a few seconds of turning it on, it turns itself off after showing the "Garmin" company...


Try to soft reset it by holding the power button for at least 20 seconds till it restarts.

If that doesn't help - try a master reset to factory defaults by holding the lower right corner during startup for at least 20 seconds. This will erase all user data and starts the Garmin in factory default.

If it restart I suggest updating the software to the latest version on Garmin.com

How do i reset my garmin colorado 300


First you'll also need to download file below. Once you've downloaded this file unzip it into a directory such as C:\Garmin on your PC.

On your PC click the Start menu, select "Run..." and type "cmd" where it says open. A black window with a DOS command prompt should appear. At the command prompt enter the following command:

> cd c:\Garmin
At the next command prompt type the following command without hitting enter:

> Updater.exe 066101000230.rgn
Now back to your GPS.

Press and hold the "up button" on the Rock'n Roller while you plug the CO into the USB cable. Wait 10-20 seconds while still holding the "up button". You should see a Garmin banner and nothing else. At this point you can hit enter on your PC to execute the updater command. Once the updater runs you will need to select you Colorado under USB and hit enter. This should perform the update (you may get a warning about loading an older version of software). You should receive a message that the update was successful and the Colorado will reboot.

Once the reboot is complete the "Loader" banner should appear near the top of the CO screen after about 30 seconds. Release the "up button" and on your PC you should be able to see the Colorado as a USB drive.

You can now attempt to fix the files on your Colorado which are preventing it from starting. If you've recently added or changed files these are good places to start. Deleting gpx files and/or replacing map img files with your backup copies may resolve the issue as well.

Problem with our Garmin you can turn it on and it will not do anything but display Garmin name and will not turn off. Have changed batteries, any ideas???


It sounds like your Garmin has a corrupt file or file system. This is common when using bird's eye imagery with unsuspected shut-downs.
Try doing a soft reset of the Garmin:Warning: This procedure will delete information (waypoints, routes, tracks, etc) from your GPS and settings may be set back to factory defaults.

1. Power the unit OFF
2. Hold down the two Soft Keys for 2 seconds
3. While continuing to hold the 2 Soft Keys down, press and hold down the Power button for an additional 5 seconds
4. Release all buttons, and select YES to the prompt asking "if you want to clear all user data?"

This form of reset does not seem to reset all of the settings to factory defaults, just a few of the basics like Time Zone and Language, the remainder of the settings are still taken from your existing profile files.

Once you have completed a reset remember to place the Colorado outside in a stationary position for 20 minutes in plain view of the sky so that it can rebuild the almanac before using it again.

Note: Holding down both soft keys and the select button in a similar fashion seems to do a similar reset to the Colorado. This may be a master reset.

If the problem still persists, try this as a last ditch effort.
Warning: This procedure may delete information (waypoints, routes, tracks, etc) from your GPS and settings may be set back to factory defaults.

If you can't get your CO to start properly and it will not go into USB storage mode when connected to your computer you can try this as a last ditch recovery. It worked on a 400t that would freeze when loading maps and soft/hard resets didn't not work, I've also used it to recover a Colorado which refused to boot because of a bad gpx file.

First you'll also need to download file below. Once you've downloaded this file unzip it into a directory such as C:Garmin on your PC.

On your PC click the Start menu, select "Run..." and type "cmd" where it says open. A black window with a DOS command prompt should appear. At the command prompt enter the following command:

.text { font-family: monospace; }.text .imp { font-weight: bold; color: red; }.text span.xtra { display: block; } > cd c:Garmin
At the next command prompt type the following command without hitting enter:

.text { font-family: monospace; }.text .imp { font-weight: bold; color: red; }.text span.xtra { display: block; } > Updater.exe 066101000230.rgn
Now back to your GPS.

Press and hold the "up button" on the Rock'n Roller while you plug the CO into the USB cable. Wait 10-20 seconds while still holding the "up button". You should see a Garmin banner and nothing else. At this point you can hit enter on your PC to execute the updater command. Once the updater runs you will need to select you Colorado under USB and hit enter.

Garmin 250w keeps resetting itself, GARMIN logo comes on and then as to press dot, then reset and GARMIN logo comes on again. Try soft reset, still reset itself. Unable to upgrade firmware because...


Probably needs a new logic board at this point. If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult.

When I turn on my Nuvi 1300 the Garmin logo appears. But after that, nothing happens. It appears that the unit freezes up Thanks, Curtis


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes, 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.
