I have had this problem before and have always been able to get the unit to power on by pushing the reset button on the back. If you haven’t tried that, then need to get paper clip to push the reset. You may need to sync afterwards to reload your software.

I hope I have been some help.

My Garmin Nuvi 265W Won't turn on


Lets put the battery issue aside for the moment. A Nuvi should power up as soon as the charger is plugged into it. It will turn on even if the battery has been removed. Of course, once you remove the charger, the unit will die immediately because the battery has been removed.

The first thing I would suggest doing is trying a reset. There are 2 ways to reset a Nuvi 2xx or 2xxW.

On some units (earlier versions), there is a flap on the bottom of the unit that you press in momentarily to reset the unit. There will be a label on the bottom with the units serial number and the word "reset" on the label.

The other method (newer versions) is to slide the on/off power switch to the left and hold it for at least 10 seconds.

Another common problem with these units are loose/broken connections on the rear USB port. There are 5 pins on this port. If the power pins are loose/broken, the unit will not be able to charge the battery. The unit will not turn on because the battery is dead. Even if you plug in the charger, there battery will not charge.

The unit will not charge the battery if it won't turn on.

My Tomtom 300 Go won't charge?


It appears that the battery will not hold a (good) charge anymore. If it is still under warranty, contact TomTom to address that problem. They may replace the unit for you.
It is not unusual for (rechargeable) batteries to loose it's capability to hold a good charge if it is plugged in (to a power source) all the time, even while it is not in use.

It won't turn on and even if i plug it into the computer or a ciagrette lighter nothing happens. it was working perfectly fine when i was using it and now i have absolutely nothing. it kept saying low...


Have you tried pressing and holding the power button for about 8 to 10 seconds? It should go on then off. Then wait a few seconds the turn it on normally. This usually resets the unit.
If this does not work try a hard reset.
Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.

Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.

Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite data.

Once it gets going update your gps at the Garmin site.

wma files won't be read, only mp3 files, in my experience. My 512 mb SD card works, but it won't read my 8 gb SDHC card. I suspect it can't manage SDHC (high capacity) cards. I haven't tested yet, because as it turns out, neither can my computer... I think I'll fall back to a flash drive.

Navnet VX2 System won,t power up, have voltage at plug in. Are there any fuses that might be out ?


Remove all connectors aside from the power cable then attempt to power up. If the unit turns on, it may be your radar if you had one one it originally. If so plug the radar cable back into it with it off and try powering up. If it does not, then thats the issue. the Radar or your cable.

I have an Invion 5v106 and the unit will not turn on at all.


Use a paper clip and insert it in the "reset" hole on the side of the unit next to the memory card expansion slot.

Fritzed Unit when antenna up


I have a similar problem but I can't turn the GPS off at all, even when the antenna is down. As far as the power on/off cycle, I found another link on this site that said to turn off WAAS while the GPS is off then when you turn it on the unit will not power cycle continuously. You loose the WAAS feature but the GPS and unit still works.
