Force a repeat of the main software update through Garmin Express. You may need to do it several times before it will "take".

Updating maps on garmin nuvi 1390t. Won't take 4g/sdhc card

You are correct. The 1390t works with microSD cards. While microSDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible.
You need to use microSD cards 2GB and smaller.

Garmin nuvi 1390t won't read or recognize microsd

The 1390t works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work in older devices.

My phone contact list shows one time and ten times dont show on my garmin 1390t.


Are you able to hook the unit up to the PC via USB, if you are able to get it into mass storage mode i would try giving the unit an update using Garmins WebUpdater Software. Often with new firmware updates issues like that are fixed, you may want to also try updating your phone aswell.

Hope this helps!

Distance to intersection or destination is off by 20-30 meters, how can I correct this?

connect your gps to your computer and run the garmin web updater program (free from garmin).
Make sure you have all the firmware updates as every now and again they readjust the satellite information to correct position errors.

1390t stopped saying street names and only says distance before turn

Some voices on the satnav don't support street names. It's likely that the voice which used to has become unselected or corrupted.
1. Press Tools, then Settings, then Language and you will see a setting for Voice. Press Voice and change to a different one. If there's not another voice there or the other voice file is corrupted you can download more.
2. Connect your satnav to your computer. Download and install webupdater from and your satnav will look for updates. When it has finished it will give you an option to download voices. Tick the ones you want and click next. When they have been downloaded to your satnav and you have disconnected your satnav from your computer select a new voice as described in paragraph 1 above.

When the power button is pressed, the "garmin logo" screen recycles continuously. Holding the power button to reset doesn't help. Like a computer stuck in a loop.

Please see THIS TIP on the Garmin Master Reset.

Then update your unit using Garmin's WebUpdater. CLICK HERE.
