If you can find the white junction box where the antenna is connected take a volt meter and measure across the red and ground wire, you should have 12 volts. Across the yellow and ground wire you should see 10 to 12 volts it should also vary. This will tell you that all DC voltages and the seatalk voltages are OK. I would next secure power to the antenna, leave it off a couple minutes and then try it again. If these suggestions do not help you may need to replace the 120 GPS. The new RS125 is the replacement for this unit.

I plugged in my Garmin Nuvi 40LM to the computer and got the updates. But my keyboard is still not responding correctly. I push 5 and get a 6 or push T and get a Y. Any ideas?


Try recalibrating the display. Turn off the Nuvi. Place your finger on the upper left-hand corner of the screen and hold it there while pushing down on the power button to turn the unit on. Release the power button when the Garmin logo appears. Continue to press on the upper left-hand corner of the screen until you see the calibration screen.

Press all of the dots as they are presented. Once completed the Nuvi will display Calibration Complete

This will recalibrate your touchscreen to the LCD display. If this doesn't resolves your problem. then your touchscreen may be defective.

How to have the battery life show on the screen ?


The battery indicator will only show on the screen in the upper right-hand corner of the screen when the unit is NOT connected to an external charger. When the charger is connected, the unit is running off of external power. The unit has to be running on battery power in order to display the battery status icon.

I cant turn on oregon 450


I just resolved this issue on mine. By holding down the power button when hooked to the computer via the USB cable, I was able to "force" the GPS into mass storage mode. I went to "my computer" icon and clicked on the Oregon 450 to be able to view it's hard drive contents. Open it up, delete all .gpx files for the .gpx folder. I then went to Garmin.com and downloaded/ reinstalled the current software for the gps. All this allowed me to perform the "Master Reset" function and restore the Oregon 450 to it's original functioning. Mater reset is described as follows: touch the upper left corner of the display screen and continue to hold the touch while depressing the power button. As the GPS powers up, continue to hold the touch in the upper left corner until the message screen displays : do you want to reset, press yes then it is complete. Worked for me...maybe you too!

To perform a Master Reset on the nuvi 300 series, follow these steps:
  1. Start with the device OFF and unplugged from the power source.
  2. Use your index finger to press and hold the top right corner of the touchscreen.
  3. Power the device ON while continuing to press and hold your finger to the top right corner of the touchscreen.
  4. After the device powers ON, release the power button. Then you will see the message: Do you really want to erase all user data?*
  5. When this message displays, remove your finger from the top right of the touchscreen and touch Yes.
  6. The device will now go through the Reset.
  7. Follow the onscreen instructions to set up your nuvi.
After the nuvi is set up, if indoors, please go outside to allow the device to acquire the satellite information. Ensure that the device has a clear line-of-sight with the sky.
*If this message does not appear when using the top right corner of the touchscreen, please repeat these steps using the bottom right corner of the touchscreen.
