Try holding the switch down for a few seconds until it starts. Mine won't start if you just punch the button. Also make sure you are plugged into a live power source. If the gps hasn't been used for a while the battery is probably drained down.

I am trying to obatin a copy of the coroners report for my dad who passed away in hospital

Hi Debra.
Try contacting the Hospital Administrator where your Dad was a patient. They should be able to help you or at least, provide you with the information and phone number that you need. Hope this helps.

Retriveing messages on old Mokia phone from my dad who has passed away.

Sorry, but voice message are not stored on the phone itself. They are stored by the telephone service provider and relate to the telephone number at the time. In any event, these messages are normally stored for a limited time by the provider so even if your phone number was still active (on another phone) they would likely be gone now.

I got a garmin 1300 from my dads stuff when he passed in nov it wont work ive tried everypassword i could think of and none work his house is not his safe place so what is and how can i get it unlocked...


Sorry to hear about your father.

You can reset the GPS to factory defaults which should clear the password. I wrote a tech article on how to perform a factory reset. You can view it by clicking here.

Toward the bottom of the article you will find directions on how to perform a hard reset of the device.

Let me know if you have any questions.

No, there is no way to reset the PIN with software. Your only options are the enter the correct PIN, take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered, or send the unit to Garmin.
