Hello, take the sd card out of the unit, press the reset button if one is available, if not hold the on/off button for 10 seconds and then reinstall the sd card and switch the unit back on and hopefully the maps should reload

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

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

Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS cannot load map to memory card


Sounds like your battery died and there's no juice to it. When the battery is low, the unit shuts itself off and has a hard time starting up. If possible, try plugging in your unit with a USB cable from the computer and leave the computer on for a few hours and see if that doesn't solve the problem. When in the car, sometimes the cigarette lighter socket comes loose.

Regarding your i3, the USB drivers must be loaded BEFORE you connect your garmin. If you do not have your USB drivers, you can download them from:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00434-00

Also, why would you need to upload maps? The i3 comes pre-loaded.

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.
