    No. The light is on at the plug in but nothing at the gps.

  • jcekkens Oct 05, 2010

    I already tried the reset 3 times but it acts like there is no power. As I said before, the green light comes on at the plug-in but nothing at the unit.

  • jcekkens Oct 05, 2010

    I tried it as you suggested. But nothing. We were just driving down the highway and it stopped working.

  • jcekkens Oct 05, 2010

    Thanks for trying. We will take it back to Best Buy even though we bought it in 2006.

Hello,

if your gps acts like there is no power, then it having a power problem. The first thing to check is the battery.

You can test the gps with another battery and see if it will power up.

Good luck.

    Does the unit respond to being reset?

    see how reset below:


  • Ekse Oct 05, 2010

    I'm sorry, you had tried the reset button already.

    How about if you reset it while its plugged in the charger any change? how about without charger?

    Do you have any idea what might have caused the unit to ""Die""?

  • Ekse Oct 05, 2010

    Sorry it seems like a major hardware problem, I can't say what is wrong with it without taking it apart. Not even sure if I could find out, You could check the battery inside, use a multimeter to check the voltage, see if there is voltage from the power plug. And that it matches the voltage mentioned on the adapters label.

  • Ekse Oct 05, 2010

    The unit is most likely outside of warranty as these are not being made anymore?

    -- very difficult to say over the internet what could be wrong with it, it needs repairs in any case, not a simple thing at this point.

Used my garmin edge 305 today on the ride, it worked fine, powered off after the ride. Got home turned on to review my stats and then powered off and went to upload and wouldn't upload, so tried to turn it...


Edge 205 or 305 often crash, then impossible to power on again.

Here is the way to reset the Garmin edge :

Soft reset : hold mode and lap/reset buttons for 10 seconds
Hard reset : device should be powered down, hold start and mode buttons for 3 seconds then pulse press the lap/reset button.

After soft reset, you need to hold start button for up to 10 secs before it starts.

After hard reset, you will loose all your data, including profiles.

My Edge 305s GPS is not working. Everything else runs perfectly fine, it just will not acquire any satellites. I tried a soft reset. It won't let me hard reset though.

Hard reset is not very easy, so follow carefully instructions above.

Now simple advice, did you check in your parameters that the GPS transceiver is turned on ?
There is a mode with GPS off, don't ask why ...
Refer to your manual to find the menu.

You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode.

above works on Garmin Nuvi 660, 680 series.

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.

Garmin Edge 705 Frozen


Only hard reset cleans up memory, when corrupted.

Hold Mode and Start buttons for 10 seconds (device off). Then without releasing pulse press lap/reset button, you'll get a screen for confirmation, all data lost, including user data and routes.

My Garmin says no detailed maps found that support routing? It will not go away and the reset I tried didn't work. ???


Did you try a Hard Reset, or just push the button on the bottom of your Garmin Nuvi 205?

Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

After trying to install new maps, Garmin nuvi 350 don't start


Look near the SN # and press the reset button.

or

with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

Garmin is frozen on, and will not respond.


Have you tried resetting the unit? Remove the faceplate and press the reset button on the right side of the unit. This may help.
