Hello,

I would suggest you reset the unit,if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your garmin nuvi, updating sometimes put the unit back to order. Follow the procedures below on how to update your garmin nuvi:

1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB.
2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: "http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 "
3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults).
4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.

Also, in case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Good luck

If you have a PIN number on your device you will have been asked to set a security location. When you are at your security location or within approximately 50 metres of your security location the device will unlock without the PIN number.

Speed restriction on Mi was at 50 miles but has been lifted and now at 70 miles. My garmin is still bleeping at 50 miles??? I have tried web updater but still bleeping.


You have to go into the change preferences and change the speed manually, if you get stuck look in your user guide, or connect your sat-nav to your computer and open tomtom home click help click view manual

Look near the SN # and press the reset button.

or

with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

I got garmin C320 GPS and recently it can not lock saterlite even at outside. I tried reset the device, the problem remains the same. I just wondering what is wrong with it


After I download and upgrade the unit software (from version 5.3 to 6.0). The problem is gone and it seems the device can lock satellite signals much faster then before.
