Car makes a click click but won't turn over..It has been cold

If battery is flat (discharged) that could be one of the problems. Charge the battery or try jump starting from another vehicle, if possible. If it still don't start after trying those two things, it's probably the starter gone bad.
If it starts after charging or jumping, have your battery load tested and
your alternators output checked. Make sure you didn't leave something on for example headlights or something plugged into accessory outlet, could be the reason battery went flat.
In a nut shell, one of these caused this. Bad battery, bad alternator, bad starter or something draiedn battery. Hope this helps.

Wanted to up date the maps on my garmin nuvi 260w. I went through all the steps on the garmin website it the deleted all the maps on the system that where already installed

Do you have Lifetime maps? If so, carefully repeat the process again. Remember it takes up to 5 hours to completely load maps etc. depending on your computer.
If you had any power issues during the load you might have corrupted some files.

My Nuvi 265wt starts but turns off when loading maps

1) the battery is depleted to collaps and neds changing.

2) there is a data corruption

But primarily it is because the battery is bad

Unit appears to be dead

well as there is no brand or further details that is like saying I have a piece of string!

Dead GPS = flat or dewad battery
Either charge it or replace it

When was the last time it was used, charged, worked.
What do you think went wrong? did the maps load last time you used it?

Freezes on the loading maps message

Hook up your Nuvi to your computer and go to the Garmin site and download the latest driver software to the 680.

Garmin c530 powers up breifly then shuts down

The problem is with the battery, DC will not fully charge the battery to its required capicty to work. You need an AC charger and to charge it fully ( 10 hrs Max) and then try it. It needs a lot of power to drive the screen and connect to satellites.
Invest in an AC charger and all should work properly

I had the same problem with my Nuvi 760 turning itself off right after the "Loading Maps..." screen but I found the answer in the Q&A section on Garmin's website.  It's actually very simple and you'll kick yourself...  Charge it up all the way!  It does that when the battery is really low.
