Question about Garmin GPSMAP 78SC GPS Receiver

1 Answer

When turning on the Garmin GPS 78sc it only stays on a few moments then goes off. This is the second one I got, I returned the first one for the same problem and now wonder if I am doing something wrong. I have the manual and gone through the troubleshooting steps. Very frustrated with this and find nothing on line stating a similar problem.

Gps not picking up charging, goes on for a few second and turns off! Gps screen turns blank or fades aways What do i need to do???


Hello,

Doing a soft reset on the nuvi will usually get the nuvi up and running.
If there is a reset button on the bottom, press and hold it until the nuvi powers back on. If it does not have the reset button on the bottom, slide and hold the power switch to the left for at least 10 seconds.
Also running the Garmin WebUpdater and reloading the latest update will resolve most issues.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

How do I turn off our garmin nuvi?


Hi,

Reset button behind the Antenna, press this in for a few seconds.
Use the Web-updater at Garmin, to update it too,
Jack it to a PC and run the update,
If still playing up, Use the Firmware update at Garmin for it,
(( google Garmin 660 software updates ))
Should be good then
Regards
Richard.

Garmin Nuvi shuts itself off after only seconds during navigation


Is the battery charged? What does the battery indicator say? If you are using it in the car, is the power cord connected and working properly? If it is working correctly, you should see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph showing that it is connected to an external power source and that it is charging.

Garmin wont stay on


How did you charge the unit? If you have not done so, try charging in on the computer for a few hours. Sometimes this can help.
