SOURCE: Lost Memory and Map Data

I just spoke with Garmin and they walked me through correcting the problem - very helpful. It is a matter of resetting the unit. Turn unit off, then press a finger tightly against the bottom right hand corner of screen, holding it while turning unit on. When screen comes up, let go of power button but still pressing bottom right hand corner of screen, answer question regarding deleting defaults. It is tricky and may have to be done a couple times. Then you will answer questions regarding time zones, etc. When finished with this, turn unit off and go outside in order for the unit to re-aquire satellites. When all four bars on upper right hand corner turn green, you're back in business - or at least it worked for me. Hopefully this will help, but you may want to call Garmin as they are really helpful and can explain it better than I can. Good luck!

Providing you saved the SD card info as soon as you got it, reformat the SD card and copy the files over. Or find a friend that has the same unit and copy their files. Reformat your card before also.

Gps on my 2002 lexus rx300 wont work it sayes disk is inserted but have no disk to insert


Sounds like the battery has been pulled or was dead for a while. You need to purchase the disk for your navigation system to reboot it somehow it has been erased or just damaged program. Look on ebay and even your Lexus dealer.

Battery new in last few months. Light comes on tonight saying battery is not discharging but belt is not loose...? 76000 miles


Stop by a local Advance, Autozone, etc .. parts store and have them do a free charging system test. Sounds like alternator is getting tired/worn. Have them test your battery also - they'll do both for FREE

My 2010 Lexus RX350 Navigation System is responding VERY SLOW!


If Lexus can't fix this there is nothing anyone here can do for it. Anything that can be done needs the proper scanning and reprogramming equipment only Lexus has. Being that the car is new when enough people complain about this they will come up with a fix, Their may be a recall on it in the future. But for now your going to have to live with it or trade the car in. I know you did'nt want to hear this but but if some yahoo directs you wrong it will cost you hundreds just to get the programming back to the way it is today. Some navigation systems if you disconnect the battery you will have to go to the dealer to get them to reprogram it. Use lots of caution when guessing. New cars are not made for the average back yard mechanic to touch.

2003 Accord. Navigation/radio/display system does not load.


I've reads post here suggesting disconnecting the battery for one hour. Couldn't hurt to try it.

Also try ejecting the Navi Disk, inspecting it for any damage, wait a few minutes and reinserting. The disk contains not only the navigation Database, but also part of the operating system.

DO NOT TRY INSERTING A OLDER NAVI DISK OR ONE FROM ANOTHER VEHICLE, THAT COULD DESTROY THE NAVI UNIT!!

If you need a new Honda Navi Disk, order it direct at https://www.hondanavi.com/Hondadvdsales/naviorder.php

Good Luck
