Nuvi 260 won't turn on at all.


Had the same problem with my Garmin Nuvi 260w. It just needed to be reset. Lift up the sticker strip on the bottom of the unit and press the reset tab. Worked like a charm for me. HTH!

Brand New...Can't get it to stay on?


Make sure you have it connected to a power source properly. Push and release the power switch. (it is spring loaded) Don't push it to the lock position for now.

Garmin Nuvi shuts itself off after only seconds during navigation


Is the battery charged? What does the battery indicator say? If you are using it in the car, is the power cord connected and working properly? If it is working correctly, you should see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph showing that it is connected to an external power source and that it is charging.
