    I have the same problem..My Nuvi 350 went dead while I was driving..battery was not full charged but still had some left. Connected to the laptop charger but nothing worked...just the black screen

  • nitelifee Jan 13, 2009

    Same deal, but my 350 is about a year old. I thought that maybe the car charger fried it. A few minutes later it comes on and then starts to load maps and then turns off--no screen, just dark. My first Nuvi had a problem with the power button and wouldn't turn off or on unless I reefed on it with my finger pushing in the power button. I think I have a $500 piece of plastic. Any help before I throw this one in the trash?

    Even with a dead or battery the unit should operate correctly when powered off of the car adapter. If the unit will not come on while using the car adapter, then it's another issue, not the battery.

Sounds like a very dead battery, have you charged it with the wall socket yet? Are you sure the car charger works?

Hit the reset button on the back of the unit, under the attenae. That should fix the problem.

Brand new Garmin 1300. Husband now travelling, un...


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.

HELLO I JUST BOUGHT A GARMIN NUVI 350 FROM A PAWN SHOP AND IT'S LOCK HOW DO I UNLOCK THE UNIT PLEASE LET ME KNOW THANKS


Garmin Lock works by using either a 4 digit pin code or by taking the unit back to a preset security location. Although Garmin warn that this should NOT be the user's home address, that's what it normally is. If you know where the last owner lived then you can try going to that location to see if it unlocks, but if you knew that piece of information you could just ask the last owner...

It came from a pawn shop though, so it's very unlikely that you know who the last owner was or where he/she lived.

There is no other way to unlock your unit without sending the unit back to Garmin. There's a charge for the service and you'll be asked to provide evidence that you own the unit; in practice it's going to be cheaper to buy a similar brand new Garmin model. All I can suggest is that you try to get a refund from the pawn shop (unlikely!) or sell it to another unsuspecting person.

Sorry, but Garmin Lock is deliberately difficult to overcome otherwise it wouldn't be much use as an anti-theft deterrent.

Charging


1. please check if the charger socket in you car is working.
You could use other deivce like a MP3 player for charging in the same socket.
If other device is not charging then the problem could be with the socket.

Check the fuse associated with the car charger.output

2.Looks like Nuvi charger has a known lose contact issue.It would be advisable to let Garmin know the issue and they will send a new one.

Nuvi 260w no power.


Yes, you need to charge it. USE the charger that came with it for best results. Some off brand chargers will NOT work.
You plugged it into your car and nothing? Even if the batteries are bad it should still work. Is it the Garmin charger?

Got it!! For those getting the "No Matches Found" headache. Here's the solution:1. Go to "Settings" 2. Go to "Map" 3. Go to "Map Info" 4. MAKE SURE that "City Navigator North America NT 2008" is CHECKED. It fixed the problem for me. Hopefully it will fix yours all the same. God Bless.
