Change the country setting for a garmin 1350


Typically, when the unit is turned on, the satellitetechnology is able to pin point the unit's current location and provide mapsbased on the user's position. However, if there is not a clear signal or youare located in a different country than the ending destination you are tryingto program into the unit, you may have to manually change the country. For thatplease follow these steps: 1. Touch anywhere on the display screen to access the mainmenu. 2. Tap or select the "Change Preferences" options. 3. Navigate to your map settings. In a Garmin this will belocated under the "View Maps" and then "Change Maps"settings. 4. Use the "Up" and "Down" arrows toscroll through the list of available countries. Once the country you arelooking for is highlighted, press the "OK" button. You will then beasked to select a state or more specific region in the selected country. Onceselected, press "OK" second time. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

  1. Power the unit On.
  2. From the Where to? / View map screen, touch Settings (wrench icon).

  2. Open the Garmin Nuvi drive located in MyComputer/Computer. (Note: Mac users can locate the Garmin Nuvi drive icon on the Desktop.)
  3. Open the Garmin folder.

I have a garmin nuvi 660 it says "the screen is currently locked. press the power key to unlock." I have done this several times and even loaded up the latest software. I still get this message. When...


The on / off switch on top has 3 positions, it locks all the way right, when the unit is on make sure you have it in the middle.

There are icons near power button that indicate right side lock.

The gps automatically shuts off after few minutes


When you turn the unit on and get to the screen showing Where To?, View Map and Travel Kit look on the upper right hand corner of the display and make sure you see the battery icon all green. If it is not then the battery is not charged

Touchscreen not responding.


There are three levels of fixes, please try them in order:
1. Reset the GPS using the Reset button, on the back, just under the Antenna Hinge. Resetting will turn off the GPS, and then turn it back on, if connected to power. Test, if fixed, great, otherwise, go to fix 2.
2. Turn the power off, then press and hold the powerbutton for up to 2 minutes. The GPS will turn on, and display a "PreBoot Mode" message. When that message disappears, and the screen calibration screen appears, follow the on-screen instructions, and you are fixed. If you still cannot use the touch screen, repeat fixes 1 and 2 several times, just to be sure., then go to fix 3
3. The touch-screen glass has probably broken or lost its connection with the GPX motherboard. You can order new touch screen glass on the web and install yourself, if you are techy in nature, otherwise do a search for "garmin nuvi 660 repair" and choose your service.

Garmin Nuvi 610 I've lost all maps :(


If your map detail is missing, then the map information may have been disabled. To check to see if the mapping has been disabled, follow the steps below:
  1. Power the unit ON.
  2. From the Where to? and View Map page, touch the Wrench icon (Tools).
  3. Touch Map.¹
  4. Touch Map Info.
  5. The unit should display the name of the map that is loaded to the unit. The box in front of the map name should have a checkmark in it. If it does not, touch the box to place a checkmark in it.
  6. Touch and hold the back button.

If the map detail is still missing, contact Garmin Product Support at 1-800-800-1020 M-F 8-7cst.

Note:
  1. Some units may require touching Settings before touching Map.

Cannot select another state on Garmin 660.


1. From the Where To? View Map, Travel Kit page press WHERE TO

2. Press ADDRESS

3. Press SPELL STATE (should be the 2nd blue box on the page & may read SPELL COUNTY)

4. Press the letter K and Kansas + Kentucky will come up; Press the letter T and Tennessee + Texas will come up, etcetera

5. If the information does not automatically appear, hit DONE and the information will appear. For example on my nuvi 660 if I hit the letter “A” nothing happens until I hit DONE.

6. After pressing the single letter for the sate/province in which you are interested, the unit will prompt you to spell the CITY name.

You will then enter the information as it applies.
