Guys, I'm working as a Garmin technician in one of the Garmin dealer shop
any way this 8 error is motor communication error
1- check the connection between the processor pcb and and the motor controller pcb
2- check the cable connections

If its possible for you to detach the parts of the unit and put them back to together that will be good to make sure everything are really connected fine..

. You can try a hard reset: Unplug unit from power mains and remove all cables from unit. Wait about 30 minutes and replug unit to power supply and redo the cabling. Switch on the unitand see if it still displays same message :


If it still displays:

If a radar error code is received and followed by a number on the GPS device, please call 1-800-800-1020..Its company support number..

We have a garmin gps map 4012 and on radar just says radar error


This is a marine chartplotter and radar unit! I thought I didn't recognize the model :>) Check the connections are the rear, but more importantly to the connections to the radar dome.

The manual is here, but doesn't mention errors. You could of course contact Garmin direct.

My Garmin Nuvi 265W will not turn on. A couple of weeks ago when I booted it up, it had reset back to like new. Asking me to do set up and such. It's been cool since then. Today I shut it off at 5pm and...


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W 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.

Garmin Nuvi PIN reset?


I think the true purpose of the pin is for another income stream to garmin they want $110 to unlock it. If not then why not just register a pin when you register for the warranty then just use your MY GARMIN to get it when you need it???
