On and off button on my system


Not sure about this system, but most gps units if you push the button thew go into standby. If you hold the button the shutdown screen comes up and asks if you want to shut the unit down. Might take 5-10 second hold though.

To fix this, you need to reset it.

2.)Wait 5 seconds.

3.)Then slide the button all the way to the left to turn the unit back on.

I turn on my nuvi 1300 and get a white screen


Hi famoflu5,

It sounds like you have the "white screen of death" (I made that up) non-responsive screen...meaning you cannot enter data or make the unit respond to finger or sylus presses. There is a procedure for getting the screen back to normal, provided there are no other software or electronic issues.

Try these steps:
1. Turn off the Nuvi.
2. Hold the upper-left of the screen while turning power on.
3. Release the Power button when the Garmin screen appears.
4. Continue to hold the upper-left corner of the screen for 30 seconds, until a white screen with "Press dot" appears.
5. Press dot and that should get you back to normal.

Also, you may to need perform a hard reset for your unit to clear out any erroneous data.

These GPS units can be reset by holding the Power button for 10-15 seconds to completely shut the unit down. Then, do the same procedure for 10-15 seconds again, to power it back on.

It would be best to assure the unit has external power, and hopefully a full battery charge, for best results. Also you can download a complete manual from this link for more info:


http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/3130_OwnersManual.pdf

Starting on page 47 of the manual in the appendix, it tells you about calibrating the screen (problem discussed above), updating software, and clearing user data.

If these steps don't bring your unit back to life, you may need to contact a regional repair facility or the factory for service.

Let me know how this turns out, and if I can help you further.

Regards,
Bill

Suddenly I have a blank screen. Was working just fine a minute ago!


It sounds like this might be a battery problem. Have you tried resetting the unit? Turning the vehicle off should NOT shut the GPS off instantly. It should indicate that the external power was lost and ask if you want to continue on battery power (shutting off in 30 seconds if you do not reply). Is this what it did?

Screen goes blank after locating sattilites.


Accordingto Garmin, this problem can be fixed by disabling the WAAS feature in teh set up menu. There is an incompatibility between the old Garmin software and latest WAAS upgrades. Later software from Garmin is supposed to fix this problem.

Unit shut down


I have run into the same problem and it may be related to the WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) feature. Try disabling this feature (under MAIN MENU / Setup). I used this receiver overseas (Asia and Europe) last year for 35 days straight with no problems. During this time WAAS was disabled as none of these satellites are visible overseas. The problem occurred intermittently prior to the overseas trip, and has reoccurred after returning. I was running into the same problem this past weekend and noticed the screen blanking out (with the vertical line) shortly after differential corrections were applied to the GPS signals. I disabled the WAAS and let the receiver run for over an hour. The problem did not return. Hope this helps.

Magellan Maestro 3100 locks


You can try a hard reset. Hold in the reset button (left side of unit, use a pin or toothpick), while turning on the unit. If you don't get the blue Magellan screen, you'll have to try again. If you get a screen with a blue background and a menu, turn it off and try again.
So far, this has fixed:
1. unit won't go on
2. unit reboots when routing
3. unit turns off after a few seconds

At least, it's fixed it for me. No idea why this happens, but it's pretty damn annoying. Give it a try.

Magellan 2200T won't completely boot up


Reset unit, and then turn off, but hold power button for at least 10 seconds, then power back on, and when ever you turn off unit, hold power button for 10 seconds, had the same problem with mine, this solved it, it seems that just turning off the unit till screen shuts down puts it in a sleep mode. Hope this solves your problem.
