I had this same problem for a few weeks, contacted Garmin and was surprised at how simple the solution was!

On your car charger, unscrew the part that goes into the lighter- counter clockwise--be careful because there are peices stacked on top of eachother. Once opened, you should find a long glass fuse. Just replace that fuse, and it works like a beauty! (I bought a 5 pack for like 3 dollars at auto zone).

Before this I had done all sorts of resets & all, and this actually fixed my problem!

Good luck!

Used my garmin edge 305 today on the ride, it worked fine, powered off after the ride. Got home turned on to review my stats and then powered off and went to upload and wouldn't upload, so tried to turn it...


Edge 205 or 305 often crash, then impossible to power on again.

Here is the way to reset the Garmin edge :

Soft reset : hold mode and lap/reset buttons for 10 seconds
Hard reset : device should be powered down, hold start and mode buttons for 3 seconds then pulse press the lap/reset button.

After soft reset, you need to hold start button for up to 10 secs before it starts.

After hard reset, you will loose all your data, including profiles.

My garmin 1300 went completly dead while on a route with the power cord attached. Unpluged tried again . Now its working. Is this normal?


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.

My Garmin 305 edge does not work correctly


Normally with Garmin sat-navs you have to switch the on/off button off and hold for around 8 seconds to reset the device

When a Garmin Nuvi 205 stops working or behaves strangely, there are two steps you can take yourself to try and get it going again:

  1. Perform a Hard Reset,
  2. Run WebUpdater to reinstall the firmware.

I hope that helps.

Garmin iQue 3600 has a blink screen


Hi,
if it will not power up, you don't have many options.

unscrew the head of the sylus to access the rest tool
Press the reset at the back with the stylus
This is re-booting, all data safe still here.

Hard reset is last resort...data erased here.
Press the reset button again as above
after you release, press the power button, keep pressing until the message
( all data stored is about to be erased )
to complete the reset press the upper half of the scroll button, on the front,
The digitizer screen appears

pressing any other button here performs a soft reset.

Update it if you get it up and running.

Hope this helps

Can get directions


First, has anything changed with your operating conditions? Different location in car? Different car? Does it do it when outside, in the open? (not in vehicle or building)

Have you tried a hardware RESET? The button is hidden behind the front panel, which snaps off by a fingernail slot located directly under the GARMIN logo on the front panel.

* Use caution removing and reinstalling the front panel... it's somewhat fragile... wiggle it a little to get it off.

Press where it says "Press to Reset", hold for a second or two. Charge the unit with the car cord or USB cable, then try to turn it on again.

Once you can get the unit to (hopefully) turn ON, you should run all updates (there may be several!) using Garmin's Webupdater. (Connect to computer with USB cable first.)

Hope this helps!!

Garmin Nuvi GPS Stopped working


Hey everyone I might have the solution:

Just got done "fixing" mine, turns out it didn't need any fixing whatsoever, just an update.

I had the same problem most of you seem to have:

Device: StreetPilot C340 worked great when I bought it and for months until one day, it just doesn't turn on...wtf right?

I was halfway done with tech support for an RMA request, (some of you might still need this) and that's when I noticed the usb input on the side of the device (like most of you I thought, why the hell does it even have one?) I plugged my universal camera usb cord into the pc, (At this point the device was on! and charging too!) and went to the garmin website, feel free to search but you will end up with this page:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27

pretty straight forward after this, follow the step by step depending on whether you have a mac or pc, download and run the "webupdater" mine was for windows, so I ran this all the way through and bam your good to go, you even have the option of updating the voice and language preference after the initial updates.

hope this helped everyone!
