Hello,

This sounds like a firmware issue try downloading Garmins WebUpdater Software and giving the unit a firmware update. If your are unable to connect the GPS to the PC you will have to send it in for warranty or repair. Here is a link to the Garmin Software you will require for the updates.

Hope this helps!

Just got new battery put in because of recall only used one time. Turned on garmin and garmin screen came on and is stuck on this screen. Does not turn off or on What's up?


Your device freezed that is why it is stuck on the garmin screen. You need to first reset your garmin by holding the power on/off button for about 15 seconds, that way it will restart.
About the battery, when you get a new battery for your device, you need to charge it for about 3 hours before powering on, once you power on without charging it first, then it might kill the cells of the battery as they are lithium ion battery. What you have to do is to remove the battery, insert it back, then you plug it to a power source for about 3 hours, be sure that the battery is charging as the green light comes on as you plug it. If the green light does not come on, then you need to connect it to a computer using your USB cable, that way it will charge. Once it is charged for about 3hours, then you will be able to turn on your device. First reset, then charge battery. That should do the job for you.
Hope this information was helpful.

Wrong language on garmin oregon 400t


I called Garmin for this very same reason. The answer is; while your GPS is off place your index finger in the upper left of the screen, turn on the GPS, a screen will come up and ask if you want to clear the GPS (or something to that effect), say yes. (Yes is the top button) Then you can choose english. YAY!

Black Screen to no power


Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

Garmin c550 GPS-Won't turn on at all.


push and Hold the power button down while you push reset, keep power button pressed til it boots again. If it does not, and it's in warranty ship it to garmin. If it's out of warranty, have someone open it up and remove the battery for a couple of minutes.
