    My 296 won't charge. The display says "charge complete" but the battery icon shows empty. The battery really is empty. The only thing I'm sure of is that the problem is not with the battery... I have two new ones that it won't charge. The problem is obviously in the unit. Anybody need some extra batteries? I have 3.

If it does not show 'charging' when connected to power, then something may be wrong with the power cord. If it is the vehicle cord (the one with the cigarette lighter plug) check the fuse in the tip of the cord.

I used it 10 months ago. its been in the car ever since and when i tried to use it i get the garmin name and then it goes blank.


If this happens even when the unit is plugged into the power source (lighter) then you should replace the battery. You can search online for battery replacements and instructions. Then plug into your PC for garmin updates. Updates are important for Garmins.

We bought the Garmin Nuvi 1300 a few months ago. We were travelling X-country when it would just shut down for no reason. When you turn it on it will turn off almost immediately. I bought another one in...


It sounds like the battery is the issue. Try leaving it plugged in over night. If that does not help, press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This will reset the device, and hopefully restore functionality. Consult the user guide for more info.

This place has the battery and tools come with it!. its super easy and way cheaper than buying a new garmin. 2 screws and unplug the old battery and plug in the new. I did mine and I never messed with the internals before.

Garmin Nuvi 1300 (and 1490T) won't start up


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

If you have tried the master reset to no avail I recommend that you send your GPS in for repair. Once you open it yourself, the warranty is null and void. If it is under one year old, it is under a full warranty. If it is over a year old, Garmin will repair it for a flat rate of $296. You will have to decide whether repair or replace is the best option for you. That said, here is the link to their repair site http://www8.garmin.com/support/outofwarranty.html

Powerless garmin


When leaving the unit not powered up for so long, the internal battery may be damaged. The power supply will not start up if the internal battery is defective.

Sometimes the internal power supply may become defective in this case and must be replaced along with the battery. Contact the manufacture for details about how to get the unit serviced.

No power


I had exactly the same problem with a 3 month old Zumo 550. Removed battery, waited a few minutes and replaced. System now poers on OK. All data on-board was retained.

GPSmap 60Csx power up problems


I had the problem where I ended up disassembling the Garmin and adding a small piece of plastic to the on/off button. For some reason the push button on the top does not reach the one on the circuit board.
