The unit isn't frozen. If you tap the power button you will hear it beep and change screens. What has happened is your touchscreen has failed. This is a common problem. Your touchscreen needs replaced. If you want some troubleshooting info, please see this link. There is just too much info to retype here:

I am trying to register my new Nuvi Garmin 1490T and get free map update. I have registered etc but am not getting the map updates required for brisbane etc.


The only time Garmin give a free map update is if a new map comes out within 60 days of your satnav first accessing satellites. To see if you are entitled to one at present go to www.garmin.com Click on the myGarmin tab at the top of the screen and log in. Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the page. Your map should be shown on this screen and also if there's a map update available. If there is an update available click on get update and follow the prompts. If it's free you won't be asked to pay. If it's not it will bring you to a screen where you'll be asked to put in your credit card details.

If there's no update available at the moment you may still be entitled to a free update when the next map update becomes available. There's usually an update in February which has not yet been released so keep an eye out for when it does.

You can find information on how to update your map at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

Garmin Nuvi will not respond, to touch of screen and screen indicates that map needs to be updated. What do I do to get it to function again


You need to plug in your Nuvi into your computer, once connected go to www.MyGarmin.com

It will then seek your Nuvi model and ask if you like to update maps or update firmware.

I would update firmware first.

Love my Nuvi 760

Garmin nuvi 770. unable to get past map update


I had this problem too. It was because I plugged in my garmin to my computer with the wrong usb cord. After realizing my lame error, I plugged it in with the right usb cord, but it was still locked up. I kept it plugged in, and reset it. After that it worked with no problems.
