I updated my Nuvi 40 with the latest software and it will not reboot into GPS mode with the usb cable connected. It used to work. I have figured out how to get it to charge with a standard USB cable: 1) Power it on.2) Press the battery icon for 8 seconds - it will enter TEST mode.3) Plug in your USB cable from the PC to the Nuvi - the screen will change to say charging.4) Press the power button 3 times rapidly - it will say Charging across the screen and it will go dim and then dark.5) To wake it up and use GPS mode while charging simply press the power button 3 times rapidly, again. Works Great!
This is either a oh doh! kind of thing or a setting or battery issue. On some models the gps is detected as a usb storage device when connected on the usb. If this is the case you won't be able to use it normally but you can copy files or update it. You can use the software to 'talk' to it and change settings. If you look at my computer you should see something like drive X: Garmin GPS or drive X: USB storage device. You may see two one for the main device and the other for the SD card.
It also sounds like it could be that your battery needs replaceing or its not getting enough power to run on. This is a bit strange as it should just shutoff when the battery is drained not lock you out. On a good battery it should run about 3 hours on a overnight charge. If it is less than that duration then it does need replaceing. Have you tried plugging its and its usb onto a differant computer? It is possible that either the usb setting has the power limited or the usb is an older type that doesn't provide enough power. Normally it should run and charge while connected to the usb cable.
Borrow a USB cable to plug it into a computer. I just had this issue with the nuvi 1300, and that was the only way to fix it.
Holding the power button for 10-15 seconds would attempt to restart it, but it would just get stuck on the "Loading Maps." section.
I was able to fix it by simply plugging it into a PC's USB port, where the unit started up for purposes of data transfer. Then I unplugged it, and it restarted properly.
Here's a work around. 1) Plug the USB cable in and let enter Sync Mode as usual. 2) When the Garmin unit is in Sync mode, unplug the USB cable. 3) The Garmin unit will start to exit Sync mode, at which time, IMMEDIATELY plug the USB cable in again. 4) If you plugged in the USB cable in time, notice the Garmin unit will remain out of the sync mode.
Steps: 1) Disconnect the nuvi from the charging cable. 2) Press and hold the battery meter icon for 8 seconds. This puts the nuvi into "system test" mode. 3) Plug in the power cable. 4) Click "Exit." The nuvi will reboot, but remain in GPS mode!
Connect your GPS to your computer with the USB cable and this will charge the GPS internal battery. Of course your computer will have to be on during the charging process. After a few hours turn on your GPS and see if it now works. If it now works then go to http://www.garmin.com and register the GPS. While you are on line also download the latest USB drivers for your computer and install them. When you reboot your GPS should be properly connected to the computer for Operating system downloads etc.
I had the same issue. I would plug it in and it would recognize the device then it would disappear.
What I did to solve the problem was to first turn on my Gamin 200w. After it was finished loading maps then I plugged in in to the usb port. My machine recognized the device without any problems. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. Hope that helps.
So what happens when you connect it to the PC?
Make sure no sd cards are installed while you do this.
download and install web updater, run it it gets to a screen where it looks for the gps, plug the usb cable into the GPS (no USB hubs please!!!) Make sure it detects the GPS before you continue. Select the updates you need (don't install all the languages !!) after this is done the program will report the downloads are on the garmin, unplug the unit and it will reboot and whilst rebooting it will install the updates....so don't touch it until it reboots again and displays the regular screen....and make sure the batery is fully charged before you do this...!
if you are using the USB cable, that won't work. You must use the bracket plug. the USB cable will charge the unit and you can't use it while it's charging. If using the USB, the system thinks you are either charging the unit or connected to a computer. This is a design flaw.
