Question about Garmin nuvi 1300 Car GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Hello. Everytime I plug in a destination that is preprogrammed in my favorites, my Garmin calculates the estimated arrival time hour away, althought the distance time is not more that 15 min. What is going on? Where can I send it to get it fixed? It was a Christmans present last year. Thanks, Beatrice

Your unit is probably set for a time in a different time zone..... not sure on your model but if you can follow how mine works you may get to it....

I have to go to Tools..... Settings..... Time ...press time zone and make sure your time zone is selected

Take the GPS out of your van to an area with a clear view of the sky. Power the unit on. If the unit is working correctly, then it will acquire the satellites. You can then put the unit back in your van. You may have to reposition the unit to keep the satellite lock.

If the unit does not acquire satellites outside, then the unit is defective.

Sounds like a major software failure. . .

Hold a finger on the upper right corner of the screen while powering up the unit. This should do a master reset.
