The resert procedure is to hold the power on slider to the left for 10 seconds, that resets the GPS, if that doesn't do it the GPS is defective and will need to be sent back to Garmin for repair..

My nuvi wont stop asking me to push the dot


Hello,

Try performing a soft reset on the unit.
Resetting Your nüvi
If your unit stops responding, turn off the unit, and then turn it back on. If this does not help, perform a reset using the reset button on the bottom of the unit.
Caution: Do not reset your nüvi with a ballpoint pen or other sharp object, which can damage your unit.
1. Disconnect the nüvi from external power.
2. Press the Reset button on the bottom of the nüvi.
3. Connect the nüvi to a power source.

A hard reset can also be done but will erase all the user data.
This is done by with the unit off and pressing and holding the bottom right hand corner of the screen while turning the unit on.

Also try running the Garmin WebUpdater and reload the latest update again.

Check the fuse at the tip of the power cord. Unscrew the round black plastic and this will release the fuse. Otherwise there could be a problem with the power cord. If the cord is defective, replace only a Garmin replacement.

HM5081TG Reset Light won't turn off


Reset the unit once it is refilled by pushing the power button and holding it down for 5 seconds before releasing. This should reset your unit to factory settings.
