    I have the same problem on my nuvi 350. Screen won't get past "loading maps" tried reset button on the back. Tried clearing user settings: with unit turned off, touch top left corner then power on. Keep touching upper left until maintenance mode message box appears. Tried going through the pre-boot, booting sequence: with unit turned off, touch upper right corner of the screen. Press and HOLD the power button until "Booting" appears.

    Also, when unit is connected to my computer it is not recognized.

    I have the Nuvi 360 that I bought from MINI and I'm having the same issue it gets to loading maps and then stops tried all the same remedies nothing. What I found works however is connect it to a power source during boot up then disconnect it when it gets to loading maps and it brings you to the continue on battery screen and then if you click continue it loads like normal.

    My gps gets to loading maps and then powers off automatically. I tried resetting the gps by pressing the button on the back and it does not seem to be working.

I was not able to resolve this myself. I spoke with a Garmin technician and worked through all possible solutions. I ended up sending it in to Garmin and they sent back a refurbished unit. The turn-around was less than a week - great response! The refurbished unit also had the lastest software installed so there were a couple new features to play with.

You almost there. You need to clear the user POI in maintenance mode. That user POI mode somehow corrupted your booting sequence.

Garmin nuvi 270 won't turn on

Stuck at the loading maps screen is often caused by a corrupted map or flash drive. The drive must be accessed in order to restore the corrupted map file or flash drive. More information can be found here:

1300 nuvi screen comes up loading maps and stops

A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that 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.
