No sound


Turn the volume up. Turn on the Garmin Nuvi. Tap the "Volume" button on the "Where to?" or home screen. Move the slider for the volume up.

Unmute the Garmin Nuvi. Tap the "Volume" icon again. Uncheck the "Mute" option, if it is currently checked.

Make sure the voice is not faulty. The navigation instructions are provided by a voice.To verify whether or not the present voice is faulty, you must switch the voice. Power on the Nuvi and tap the "Tool" icon. Tap "Settings" in the Tool menu. Tap the "Language" option and tap the language you want. Then select another voice to use. Now go back to the home screen and enter an address into the "Where to?" option. See if you can hear sound now.

Update the Garmin Nuvi with WebUpdater. Download and install WebUpdater from the Garmin website (see Resources). Launch WebUpdater on the computer, and connect the Nuvi to the computer with the USB cable. The software will detect the Nuvi and locate all updates for the device. Confirm that you want to update the device when prompted and WebUpdater will download the updates to the Nuvi.

Reset the Garmin Nuvi. A master reset will restore the Nuvi to its factory configurations and delete all favorites and waypoints that have been added. Power off the Nuvi and unplug it from any power source. Hold your finger down on the bottom right corner of the Nuvi screen, at the same time power the device back on. When asked "Do you really want to erase all user data?," remove your finger from the bottom corner of the screen and tap "Yes." The device will reset and sound should be restored.

We have A Garmin 1300. It works fine for a while then the screen goes blank. We hold down the on button for a LONG while then the screen will come back up and make you go through several screens, but...


Hello,

Be sure to update the firmware by running the Garmin WebUpdater.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

It is not necessary to unplug the vehicle power cable as the unit will shut down automatically if the vehicle power source is not supplying power after the vehicle is turned off. If the vehicle power cable does continue to supply power, then a manual shut down can be done with the power switch on the nuvi but it is still not necessary to disconnect the vehicle power cable.

The screen on my Garmin nuvi 205 sat nav keeps going blank, although I can still see and hear that it is working. What is wrong and can I get it fixed?


Try resetting your nuvi by holding the power button for 8 or more seconds see page 42of owners manual.
Have you tried a touch screen calibration? Here is the procedure:
Turn off your Nuvi. Then hold the upper left corner of the screen firmly while turning it back on.Release the power key when the Garmin screen appears.
I have attached a link to the owners manual which explains this procedure on page 41.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 660. Serial # 12P414268. I turn on my GPS and I can't key in my PIN number. Nothing is working. I recently returned from a trip to Kansas. The unit worked great until we were...


Power off your Garmin 660 unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
To back up your Garmin.
  • From the garmin drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  • After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Garmin, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  • On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Garmin where they are actually stored
  • You can also try powering off the unit and hitting the reset button under the antenna, or try the information above but pressing firmly the lower right side of the screen.
    This should reset your Garmin then I would suggest updating your device at the Garmin site. I will attach a link.

    My Garmin nuvi 250w just went blank


    Try a hard reset,the Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.
    1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
    2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
    3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
    Perform the Hard Reset:

    *Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit
    1. Power the unit off.
    2. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
    3. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.
    4. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences
    Then make sure the unit is fully charged,then go to the Garmin site and register your product. Then download Garmin Updater and connect your unit with a usb cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

    My Garmin 1300 suddenly went to night screen for a couple of seconds and then shut off while driving. And now it won't turn back on even though there is power.


    A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, 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.
