Only the counties loaded on the CF card would be lost - the main base map is in the units' main memory. If you have both disks simply copy the wMap program over to your PC to download counties to the CF card. See Whistler's FAQ page for more info on Galileo GPS unit.

GPS Nuvi 1350 not booting past Garmin screen

In order to access the unit's internal flash drive, a service firmware needs to be flashed on the unit. This will allow the unit to boot only as a flash drive and a PC will now recognize it. The backup files may now be transferred over to the unit. Then the units firmware must be flashed with the normal factory firmware (v6.3 as of 3/8/16). More info on boot-up issues can be found here:

It will not power on. The name garmin is on the screen with a black background.what could the problem be?

A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

How to format corupted microsd

Before you start, please make sure you have a reader that can read and write to 2GB card properly. DO NOT use in built-in reader on laptop and desktop, or old readers made 2 years or longer ago, because these readers can only use up to 1GB card. I recommend using it in external USB 2.0 reader that is made within 1 year ago.

If you do not have such reader, then connect the device (gps/camera/pda/camcorder) to the computer with USB cable and the card inserted and if works you should see new drive letters show up under My Computer.
Otherwise, if used in devices that do not support the 2GB card, the card will be damaged.

Please try the following troubleshooting guide first and see if it can solve the problem. Try one step at a time. If one works, then you can stop trying. You don't need to try all of them.
The following guide will erase all the data on the drive/card. So make sure you backup your data first before you try the steps below:

1. First, remove the card/drive from your computer.

Download the low level format tool below to your computer.
Install the program into your computer.
You should see a new icon called "Hard Disk Low Level Format Tool".
a. Insert the card/drive and run the program.
It should shows as BUS: USB. Select the BUS: USB. Also check the size and make sure.
If you don't see BUS: USB, that means the card is unreadable and need to be replaced. In this case, please STOP here and close the program and DO NOT continue below.
b. Then click Continue->Low Level Format->Format this Device.
c. Wait for a few minutes until it finish successfully with a message of asking you to partition and format it. (if you see formatting error, you can stop the formatting and the card needs to be replaced.)
d. Flash Card:
Put the card back into your device and then use the format utility in the device to format the card.

Nvx430bt jensen gps initialization error no language files


This happens when the language files stored in your Jensen's memory get damaged. The Sat Nav system will look for new language files on your USB memory, and return the error.

Often the problem happens because you formatted the disk.

I suggest to start trying to set language to English.

In theory you are supposed to restore the flash image from original CD or computer backup.

A first attempt to fix the problem can be done resetting the Sat Nav. Just take out the battery for ten seconds.

If you have the original CD, files to be restored are in the IGO folder, and must be copied into the flash disk.

Files to be copied are

  • igolaunch.exe
  • SettingsBackup.ini

If that does not work, contact Jensen/Audiovox clicking here, they will enable a download of the language files to replace the damaged ones.

Flashing Cross and Re-formatting

Hi, I take it that what you mean by website is " The TomTom" website ?
Before formatting you should have backed up the files from your TomTom or you have a CD / DVD with the files on ( same files on that disk as were on your TomTom's hard drive ) . After formatting it should be a simple task to re-install the files back onto your TomTom but you might then have to re-authorise the maps using the number on the card that came with your TomTom ( looks similar to a credit card ) . It is also possible to download the files from TomTom website . You can do this using TomTom home as it does most of the work for you , or you can hunt around on the TomTom website and download each file required ( but you would need to know the file names ) direct to your PC . Once you have the files you can then upload them to your TomTom directly ( when connected to your PC , the tomtom will appear in "My Computer" as a USB drive ) so it's a simple matetr of dragging and dropping the files . Again , once you have all the files on your TomTom you will likely need to activate the maps again using the product code on the credit card thing that came with your TomTom. Good Luck.

Tom tom 520 memory card

tt520 do use a specific file format so it is possible that removing any info on the disk first will help, if this is possible do it through a computers card reader then you can see what is on the card and if you want to format it.
