If you are having problems finding a particular address, try some of following tips. In some cases the address may be listed as being in a different city other than the one that was chosen. When the unit asks for the City Name, try choosing Search All Cities. If the address is listed under a different City Name, doing this will allow the unit to find the address. Also, when entering a street name, it is important that you leave off any direction or label. For example, if the address was 2536 SW Melrose Place, you would enter 2536 for the house number and only Melrose for the street name. Using the house number and city/state, the unit will fill in the direction (SW) and label (Place).

If you are still unable to find the address, the mapping may not have the address available yet. Please report this to our Cartography department using the Error Report Form which can be found at the following link:

Computer doesn't recognize garmin


Your computer uses USB Mass Storage Mode to detect your Garmin unit. If your computer does not detect your Garmin unit, you can try these troubleshooting steps:

Unplug the USB cable from the computer.
Turn the unit off and then back on again.
Plug the USB cable into your computer.
The unit either automatically goes into USB Mass Storage Mode or displays USB Mass Storage Mode as an option on the screen.

Note: If your computer still does not detect the unit, make sure that you plug the USB cable directly into the computer USB port and not the USB hub. If the cable is already plugged directly into the computer, try plugging it into a different port.

If you still experience problems, please contact Product Support.

My computer windows XP can't see/recognize my garmin nuvi 1250. I just bought it .The garmin was made in Taiwan. I have intention to upgrade the map.. coz it is old map (2010).but I cannot register...


Assuming the Garmin communicator plug-in has been installed in the Internet Browser and registered at Garmin.com with a user account - the Garmin goes into (PC) communication mode when its connected to the USB port of a PC.

If that doesn't happen - i'd suspect the USB cable first.

Assuming the cable is ok - including the USB port of the PC - the Garmin must go into (PC) communication mode. If not the Garmin USB jack could be defective.

The map is probably either unselected or locked. You'll find details of how to select the map at paragraph 5 of the link below. If this doesn't solve the problem follow the instructions from paragraph 2 of the same link to unlock it.

My new Garmin Nuvi 1350T. When I try to enter an address for "where to?" I'm told "No Map Data Available" It was working fine for the past several days.


Most likely the problem is that the map has become unselected. You can find how to select the map at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing. There's more information there than you need so you can jump straight to paragraph 5, near the bottom of the page, to find what you need.

If this doesn't solve the problem the may may be locked. You can also find information on unlocking the map at the same link starting at paragraph 2.

Garmin Nuvi 1350 - will not power on unless I hold power button down for the 10 second reset. At this point, the device powers on until it reaches the "loading maps" point and then shuts down.


If your device is currently experiencing the following symptoms it may need to come in for service/repair:
  • The device powers on and freezes at the Garmin logo with no trademark or copywrite info displayed on the device which normally shows up below the logo. The device will not display the Main Menu and will not go into Mass Storage Mode.
  • The device powers on and freezes at the Garmin logo and then flashes a white screen briefly. The device then begins a loop of showing the Garmin logo and then flashes the white screen over and over again. The device will not display the Main Menu and will not go into Mass Storage Mode.
  • The device powers on and then freezes or shuts down when displaying the Loading Maps screen.
For service/repair of a device due to the three symptoms listed above please select "No - I would like to submit a follow up email" below this article. You will be taken to an email form that you can submit to obtain a Return Material Authorization number.
Please note: It is important to completely fill out the form with as much information as possible including:
  • Market Name: On the Road
  • Serial Number (listed on the bottom of the device)
  • Question Type: Repair Information
  • Provide a short description of your problem or question: nuvi frozen on Garmin Logo
  • Full Name
  • Contact Phone Number
  • Shipping Address

Garmin won't recognize the city, so I can't enter the address


Instead of entering a city, hit "Search All". Then enter the rest of the address as normal. Sometimes the address is listed as being in a different/nearby city due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.
