I have a Garmin also, and had a similar problem as yours. I had to reinstall the software and that corrected my problem with my unit.

I hope this helps you out

Tried webupdater and the PC does not find the unit. Tried another Garmin and it worked. Bad device keeps shutting off or freezes at the agree button and then shuts itself off.


Have you fully charged the unit for a couple of hours with the car charger? If you charged it with the USB cable it will take 3 to 4 hours to fully charge...

Once charged go to www.MyGarmin.com and do a firmware update

After 5 minutes the unit turns off by itself. Need to stay powered down for a while to start back. Works 5 minutes...or less and then again.


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.

I just got a Garmin nuvi 1300 for Christmas and it has worked just fine for almost 2 weeks. Then yesterday, out of the blue, it shut off for a few hours and would not turn back on. It did the same thing...

Garmin GPS-V freezes up


The update from Garmin seems to have cured the problem!! All I did was the reload.

Thanks velomaster!

I've had my Garmin GPS V for almost four years and loved it ... until the dreaded "black line" showed up. I considered replacing the unit but couldn't find anything that would give me the features the GPS V gave me (elevation, ground speed, grade change) and I didn't need a color screen display as an alternative. I'd even bid on a few replacement units on ebay. I was just about ready to bite the bullet, send it in to Garmin and swallow the $125 rebuilt charge when I ran across this thread. After the update it hasn't locked up and as a bonus I have more detail than I had before!

If you have a GPS V you really do need to do this.
