Question about GPS Devices

Open Question

I have a NavSure 200i. The batteries are fully charged, and I have not knocked or dropped it. Ehen I turn it on, instead of the normal boot-up screen, I get various blue screens with an options menu - ie : UTool Oscar90C R03 512MB 0=FlashRom Upgrade 1=GPS Tools 2=Other Tools Choice: 0 There are other screens with similar menus. Regardless of what I do, I cannot get gack to the normal boot-up screen. I have ried to press the Reset button at he top of the unit, but nothing happens. I have tried to re-install the software, but it will not allow me to do this. Help. Bhupendra Solanki

SOURCE: When I turned it on

This happens when both the power and reset button are depressed. In my case the menu came up and the selection between items would loop. Pressing buttons did nothing. It wouldn't even allow me to select anything.

Solved the problem. It appears that the reset switch malfunctioned. I opened it up (hint: use a guitar pick to pry the edges apart) and removed the reset switch. If you don't like to solder you can gently pull the top off the micro switch and that will do it. Cleaned it with compressed air. .... Now all I need is new reset switch.

SOURCE: magellan 4250 blue screen, not able to reset

This may mean that the GPS was formatted and there is no data on it. So basically, you can't do anything with it because all the maps and software were deleted.

Gps shuts off regularly


From what I've experienced, repeated restarting, and frequent shut downs, can be traced back to a defective power cord, and/or a low battery state. Garmins operate best with a full battery charge, regardless their connection to external power.
If you can get it to connect to your computer, and can see it as a device with removable storage, right clicking on it's icon, and select "properties" to show you the battery-charge state detected.
Mine won't charge when connected to the computer for some reason, and won't boot even if left for a few hours, but if I connect it to a dedicated usb charger, (the kind that plugs into an A/C outlet with a USB port) it will begin to charge. After fully charging it returns to normal operational state. If it still can't charge it may need a new battery...

Make sure the battery contacts inside the Garmine are clean. Use an eraser to clean the contacts. if this does not help then you might have a problem with the charging part inside teh Garmin itself.

My Garmin Nuvi 255W, which comes on normally when I start the car, is not coming on. It is only about 5 months old. I keep it plugged into the lighter at all times. Do I need to worry about a battery in...


more than that! keeping it plugged into the car is damaging the SIIRF chip and battery when you start the motor. Also the unit needs to be charged properly before use in an AC charger or vIA USB The DC in the car will not fully charge the unit. In fact it also leaks power back to the battery of the car when you turn ignition off, so dropping the volatage and amps of the battery in the GPS.
ALWAYS UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ENGINE

Always charge/recharge it prior to use in a AC or USB environment

Battery life is average 2 years unless used like you say you have. Then 3-6 months might see it collapse!

try a full and proper recharge first

My GPS won't turn on or won't charge


Have you tried replacing the battery.
Wont charge? Sometimes if the battery is totally depleted even the charge light will not go on until the battery reaches a certain level of fill. Are you sure it isnt charging? A new battery will confirm its viability to be able to deliver service in future.

Charging a Garmin Nuvi 260W


Generally most batterys are left on the charger overnight, thats a good way to ensure a full charge, but as you will be using it in your car, it doesn't matter much as power is always available.

To ensure best possible battery life when you have a brand new battery, charge it fully and then drain it almost to 0% Draining most batterys into 0% will be harmfull instead of helpful, I assume the nuvi uses a Li-ion battery so draining it fully is not a good idea, drain it almost fully and then charge it fully.

And you are good to go, repeat the process if you leave the unit unused for a month or two for best battery life.

Thank you,
