How do I perform a Master Reset on a Garmin 605


This was described in a previous answer. I was cut and pasted. I hope that it is helpful to you!

In order to reset Garmin device or enter into maintenance mode, perform one of the following procedures:

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase 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.
If entering maintenance mode, it's also possible to perform master reset by selecting clear user data option.

Once the device has been hard reset, you have to perform the set up procedure again upon start up. Note that erase user data command only delete data in the Garmin unit's memory that isn't accessible to the user when the unit is connected to computer. The command does not erase .gpi or .gpx files loaded (if your .gpx files contain any waypoints then they will automatically be imported into Favorites), nor will delete any MP3 music, JPG photos or any other files that have been stored on the GPS memory card.
Once the Garmin GPS unit is reseted, remember to place the device outside where there is a clear unobstructed view of the sky for 15 - 30 minutes in order for it to requires fix to GPS satellites.
Unfortunately, even if you perform master reset on Garmin GPS unit, it does not reset Garmin Lock security feature, which password-protect most Garmin electronic devices to deter theft. If you forget the PIN or password unlock code to unlock the Garmin unit, the best solution is to bring it to Garmin to get unlocked. "Secure Location" does not unlock a locked Garmin unit either as it's only a temporary fix as when it's turn on outside the security location, the device is locked again.

GPS was working fine. Stopped and turned off car....


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.

Garmin 250w keeps resetting itself, GARMIN logo comes on and then as to press dot, then reset and GARMIN logo comes on again. Try soft reset, still reset itself. Unable to upgrade firmware because...


Probably needs a new logic board at this point. If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult.

Got it for Xmas-just turned it on and it won't get a satellite signal...what gives ?


Hi.

Try resetting the Garmin Nuvi (access maintainance mode).

If that does not fix the problem, then the unit may be faulty. In that case contact Garmin at the number that you find on the owners manual to get the unit replaced.

Forgot my password, need a reset code


To reset the GPS, put your thumbnail under the Garmin logo and pull off the faceplate. Press the reset button.

If you still need PIN, you can either drive to secure location to unlock the GPS and if you don't know it, the only other way to unlock it is to contact Garmin.

Reset my garmin streetpilot c530gps


There is no way to just "reset" the PIN. If you don't have the correct PIN, you must take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set. Your only other option is to return the unit to Garmin.
