I have a Garmin 1300 series. It has stopped charging. i have tried charging it in the car and indoors but still no success. it is less than a year old. any suggestions?


The batteries in these devices tend to last several years under "normal" conditions of use.

If the unit is less than a year old, it should be covered under the Garmin's warranty. Gather your proof of purchase (sales slip, etc.) and contact Garmin Customer Support. They'll solve the problem for you most likely by sending you a newly factory overhauled 1390T. This means you won't get YOUR GPS back - but rather a different one. Be sure to back up and remove any personally identifiable info on your GPS before sending it to Garmin. Your replacement 1390T will have the latest maps installed on it already. Simply register it like you did with the first one on their site and you're done!

I hope this helps & good luck!

No access to free map or traffic updates. Plugged in traffic accessory that came with the unit, and it tells me that the accessory is not compatible with the unit. The serial number on the bottom of the...


If the Garmin Nuvi is sold with "life-time updates" for maps & traffic - updates are available for download at MyGarmin.com once they are available.

A "life-time update" is coupled to the serial number of the Garmin unit. If the serial number does not match the box with "life-time updates" on it - it could be the Garmin Nuvi came from another box without "life-time updates".

Without "life-time updates" - maps are available for free within 60 days after purchase. A "purchase" is registered by the Garmin device if it detects a certain speed or when it's registered at MyGarmin.com - meaning the 60 day countdown starts. Without a "life-time update" for traffic - a traffic subscription must be bought for a country & timeframe. (ie a year).

I AM TRYING TO GET A TRAFFIC SUBSCRIPTION CODE TO ENTER MY RECEIVER;3815168628 THANKS


In Garmin nuvi most free traffic subscriptions are automatic in Canada. Just turn the unit on by plugging the adapter into the cigarette lighter in your car, wait few minutes and it should connect by itself . In Garmin nuvi 765 a little icon of two cars will appear near the top left corner of your map, with it you can change to the traffic map. When the icon is green you are in the area covered by the free traffic subscription, when it is yellow you are approaching the area, when it is gray you are out of the area covered by the traffic service.

I need to obtain a traffic subscription code for my garmin gps.. it tells me to go to visit a website which wil ask me to enter the Unit ID of my FM traffic receiver but i dont know where to go with that


Free traffic in Canada should subscribe automatically without any need to put a code in. It has to be connected by the adapter through your car's lighter, a small icon of two cars will appear near the top left corner of your map, and with it you can change to the traffic map.
When the icon is green you are in the area covered by the free traffic service.

Our garmin product, Nuvi 465 T is telling us to go to www.garmin.com/fmtraffic to get a subscription code, so that we can enter a unit ID to get a free subscription to FM traffic. Every time we go there,...


Yes, you do not have to enter a subscription code for this unit because it comes with a lifetime subscription. All you have to do is be sure you plug your adapter in first, and also be in an area where there are traffic broadcasts, when your unit powers up, you will see a small green traffic symbol in the upper left corner of the screen. this indicates that it is picking up the signal. If it turns gray, then you do not have a signal in that area. Again, be sure you are in an area that has traffic broadcasts, plug in adapter first, then you should be fine. Again, it is not necessary to enter a code. Good luck and have fun!

Garmin 265WT - fm traffic


I called Garmin about the same issue. If you will turn it on and are in one of the 50 metro areas covered it will automatically receive trraffic updates. That is exactly what I did and it worked and I got the same message you did. You do NOT have to sign up, get a code, or anything. Just turn it on in one of the areas and watch for the traffic symbol on the uper left hand side.
