Connect your Nuvi to a PC using a USB and then hold the switch to the left for 15 seconds. It should then power up after a soft reset

SOURCE: Is there any free map updates for the garmin nuvi?

Asmany as there are FREE dinners Updates are not free, unless you paid full price for it when you bought it. Free upgrades are a deceptive myth. If you get a free uograde its usually minor and was included in the price of the pack.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 255w freezes

mine would constantly cycle in the reboot. I had to clear the stored data by pressng and holding the lower right side of the screen and turning on the gps. once it boots up, it will ask if you want to clear the data memory (will not clear the actual maps). say yes, when it reboots, you will have to redo your personal settings as if it was new out of the box.

My garmin nuvi 1300 won't turn on

The Garmin Nuvi gps probably has halted to to either a software or hardware flaw. Sadly about the only way to bring it back may be to reset it to the factory defaults. Depending on your model, this might lose all your saved data.

Try pressing and HOLDING the power button for up to 15 seconds (or until it powers up - whichever happens first). This is a "hard reset" and should be done whenever the GPS stops acting as expected / locks up / won't turn on / etc..

When i turn the garmin on, it only says garmin on it and it won't go any further


Try doing a soft reset on the nuvi. If there is a reset button on the bottom, press and hold it until the nuvi powers back on. If it does not have the reset button on the bottom, slide and hold the power switch to the left for at least 10 seconds.
You could also try running the Garmin WebUpdater.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

If the problem cannot be resolved, it may be necessary to return the unit to Garmin to claim for warranty.

I was driving and my garmin nuvi froze, so i turned it off and when i went to turn it on just the garmin icon comes up then. nothing.


I would suggest you reset the unit, if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your garmin nuvi, I think its out of date and needs to be updated. Follow the procedures below on how to update your garmin nuvi but first, perform the reset:

1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB.
2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: " "
3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults).
4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.

Also, in case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Good luck

My nuvi 1100 simulator is OFF should it be ON?

NO. The "simulator" mode is used when you want your unit to pretend it has a GPS signal instead of actually determining its actual location and motion from the GPS satellites. You can use it to do routing from your armchair in advance of a trip, but you would turn it off to do actual navigation
