Worked for me on a Samsung i780 I had that problem once when I was using the Garmin Mobile XT ... googled about it .... some said had to hard reset .... stumbled upon one simple solution ...... sometimes the accumulated SMSes in our Sam i780 can cause that problem ( I still cant figure out the relationship with sms and garmin ...hehe ). Since I started deleting my sms I never had a problem with Garmin not loading up.

Please follow the instructions below to remove the "Loader Loading" message from the unit.

To fix this problem on Windows:
  1. With the nuvi powered off, press and hold the upper left hand corner of the touchscreen with your finger
  2. Continue to hold the touchscreen while pressing and releasing the power button on the device. The Garmin Logo should display
  3. Continue to hold the touchscreen while connecting the device to your computer
  4. After 30 seconds, the screen should flash white. At this point, release the touchscreen. A green progress bar should display on the device. After the progress bar completes (45-60 seconds), the device should go into Mass Storage mode
  5. Open the nuvi drive that appears in My Computer or Computer
  6. Locate the Voice folder and delete the extra Voice files that are not needed
  7. Type ".System" (without quotations) after the nuvi's letter in the address bar
    • For example, if your nuvi appears as E:\ then after typing ".System" in the address bar, it should look like this: E:\.System
  8. Locate the GUPDATE.GCD file and delete it
  9. Safely remove your device from your computer
After the corrupted update file has been removed, the device should work properly. Run the WebUpdater program to update the device's operating software.

Hello there, I bought a china brand gps with built in garmin mobile xt, how do install road maps. I'm from the philippines by the way.. Thanks for helping me...


Welcome to FixYa!
To update your map, go to https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm? Choose your device type. I believe Garmin Mobile XT is under the "Phone Devices".
It will ask you to install the Garmin Communicator Plugin, install it and follow the instructions. You may need to connect your GPS to the computer during this process.
I'm not quite sure if a road map for Philippines is available though.
Thank you for using FixYa. Have a great day. Jas247
Note: CDRKing also released a less expensive GPS tailored for Philippines.

Unable to program a new address into my Garmin nuvi 1300T. it will turn on but will not let me get pass the agreement stage Reset it back to the default settings, help!!!


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Pin570 using garmin Mobile XT software,GPS not working


Try Start Settings System GPS and tap ON before starting the satnav program. Not all programs automatically switch on the GPS. On hitting ON yellow light top left starts flashing. Now start your satnav program..

I have a problem with Garmin 770 maps unlock


How to unlock this mapping to your Nuvi 700 series, if you get the error message “can’t unlock maps”
Please connect the Nuvi to the computer then follow the following steps:
1. Go to ‘My Computer’ and select your Nuvi.
2. Once you have selected the Nuvi go to the ‘Garmin’ folder.
3. Click options along the top toolbar of the open window, then select folder options.
Once the box appears, select the VIEW tab along the top and un-tick the ‘Hide extensions for known file types’, then click OK.


4. Once you are back in the Garmin window you will need to right click the window and
then choose NEW > Text Document:

5. Once you have the Text Document appear in the window you will need to name it:
gmapprom.unl (you may need to remove the .TXT extension).
6. Once the file has been created, right click on it and choose open. A window will pop
up asking you to choose the program to open the gmapprom.unl file, you will need to
choose NOTEPAD and make sure the box at the bottom that says to always use this
program for this file type is un-ticked and then click OK

7. You will then have an empty document open, in here you need to type your 25 character unlock code all in lowercase and without spaces or ‘-‘. After entering this,
save and close the document.
8. You can then unplug your unit and the mapping will be unlocked on the Nuvi. (Please note that if you have a Nuvi 770 then you will need to repeat this process again as you will have two unlock codes. You will need to name the second file
