Garmin 530 log on problems

Can not turn on my Garmin 530. If I plug in the battery charger it broadcasts weather but I can not turn the unit on and I can not adjust the volume or turn the Garmin off. The screen lights up and shows percent of charge but all buttons can only turn screen light on and off. Please help!

    I purchased the device last summer and used it last fall on a high country mule deer hunt. It worked great. over the winter I used it a couple of times to check weather and it has been on the shelf in my office since last fall. Leaving today for a fishing trip in central Pa and thought I would charge it befor going last night. As soon as I pluged in the charger norad weather came on . I did not attempt to turn the device on prior to connecting the charger and norad stops when I unplug the charger. battery is at 82%. It has never been wet. Other than that sign of life when charger is pluged in it is stone dead. Thanks, Meb

    Garmin 530 will not turn on. No sign of life in the device until I plug in the charger. At that time the screen lights up and norad weather starts broadcasting. I cannot adjust volume and all buttons only turn screen light on and off. Battery is at 82% and charges normally. Unit has been on a shelf in my office all winter and operated normally appx 90 days ago. Thanks for your help. Meb

Could be a problem with the memory card. Please try to remove that then power up and see if the issue is resolved. If not, it could be a problem with the internal circuitry. If this is the case, then unfortunately, there is no other go except to get the device service.

There is a glitch with this specific unit, you should try loading any software updates and then try to fully discharge the unit. If you can get it to discharge, then once you plug it in to the computer, try loading the updates which should prevent this from happening again. Let me know of any problems that you may run into while doing this and I would be glad to help all of the way until this is fixed.

good luck and please let me know if you have any further questions

    A little more into the glitch, when you think the device is actually off, it's not it is said to be on and the glitch prevents all buttons from working correctly, Once completely discharged, it should start working again when plugged back in.

It sounds like it has a short circuit. try contacting customer service to see about them repairing it if it is still under warranty. also try updating the device. here is the update site http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=3515 here is the customer support site http://www8.garmin.com/support/warranty.html also if you just purchased the device within say 3 months the store where you purchased it from should replace it too

Check the FUSE usually located in the plug if so equipped try owners manual. Also check car fuse for short or overload fuse opens, also bad battery replace it, try Mouser electronics lotta techs are ordering on line no min order.

I have a garmin nuvi and the cable that you put into your cigarette lighter will not work. I changed the fuse and it still will not keep the unit charged. I can charge it on my computer with a usb cable....


Do you see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph? This indicates that its charging. If it's under warranty, please contact Garmin on their website. www.garmin.com and call them. No need to worry about this if its under warranty. Send them your charger too.

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
