Question about Garmin GPS
I am not sure which model you have but all Garmins have reset button on the units, it is usually located on the bottom or lower back usually by the serial number and on the newest models it is under the serial number label. Once you find it, gently push and hold it with your finger tip or a paper clip for a few seconds and the unit will go thru a reboot and should start working again. Thanks for using FixYa

with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

have you tried the master reset?
plug it in to the usb port on your computer for a few hours.if that fails,then try the master reset.
note: that the master reset will erase all your saved data
with the unit off,and unplugged, try pressing and holding your finger on the low right corner of the screen and slide the power switch to the on position until you see the message "confirm if you really want to delete all user data?" hit yes and let it restart. then it will set up the nuvi again, so follow the prompts.
if that fails, hook up the nuvi to the web updater and get the latest update.
download the updater HERE
(actually i would do this either way)

Try resetting your unit with the reset button on the bottom. If this doesn't work, slide the power button all the way to the left and hold it for 8 seconds.
