My Garmin Died after only using for a few months!!!

I was in the process of inputing an address and it turned off- nothing - black screen. I was so annoyed because I was on the road to a destination and did not know how to get there!!!

The Canadian Tire Store won't replace it! They say it only has a warrentee in there store to 7days days from date of purchase. I am leaving for Las Vegas on the weekend and need my GPS !!! Help!

    I tried to turn on my Nuvi 250W this morning and nothing happened. I charged the battery from the car for three hours and from my laptop computer for an additional three hours. Still nothing!! I pressed the reset button and the method of holding your finger on the lower right corner of the unit and trying to turn it on- still nothing happened.

When i type in an address it says no matches found. do i need to update my maps?

With Garmin it is best to purchase the lifetime updates for just a little extra cost. Maps are updated about every 4 months or so. I check mine about every 4 to 6 months.

The address has to be exactly as Garmin knows it. Often it is better to input the post code and house/business number.

I have a garmin nuvi 205w. i've had it for one year, have never had any problems until one day i go to turn it on and nothing happens, tried charging it thinking the battery was dead and still nothing...

your charging port on the garmin i bad, this happened to one of mine also, just call garmin, tell them you bought it a couple months ago, they will replace it for free. But don't tell them it was bought over a year ago othewise the warranty will no longer be good.

Screen goes black when I press "finished", for next input.

Gentlemen, I have not received a reply to date from your outlet. I do not wish to join anything. I just want to know if my unit requires professional repair and who do I go to to have it repaired.
Thank you,

My garmin c340, only a few months old just died--cannot get it to turn on and it definitely is not the fuse. Help!!

I took the faceplate off very gently starting under "garmin". I plugged it into the cig lighter in my car and turned my car on. I pressed the reset button and it turned on (THANK GOD!!). I then let it charge a little.

Blank screen

I had the same problem, so I hit the side of the Garmin a few times. It works perfectly now. Something inside was unaligned and needed a little force to knock it into place. I didn't hit it HARD.
