I had this same problem.  Just lift up the antenna on the back, hold the reset button for 3 seconds, and then plug it in to an external power source.  Mine started right back up after just going black one day while driving and not turning back on until i did this.

I pluged in my old garmin with a new cord. the new cord when i pluged it in it tould me to update. but my old cord will work the garmin fine. my garmin is a nuvi 255w


Is this the USB data cable or is it the vehicle power cable?
Is it possible that you may have the wrong cable for the nuvi 255W?
The proper data cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-01.
The proper vehicle power cable is part number 010-10723-06.

When the garmin is pluged into the lighter it will not charge but says to connect to computer. while pluged to computer it will charge

It sounds like your Garmin Nuvi is stuck in "computer" mode. Try resetting it. Here's how:
Without plugging it in to anything, turn it on. Open the GPS antenna and look behind it for the "Reset" button. Press it firmly. It should restart. Then try it in your car and see if that solves it.

If that doesn't work, try reinstalling the software. To do that, plug it into your computer with the USB cable. Then go to
On the web site, first register your product if you haven't done that yet. Then look for "Support" and follow their instructions for updating your software.

A third possibility
is that your car adapter is bad. Try replacing it. (Try this after the first two ideas because you'll have to spend some money, and this might not solve it either.)

Good luck.

GPS was working fine. Stopped and turned off car....

A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 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.

Our Garmin Nuvi was working until we stopped the car.

I've had this happen on three successive Nuvi 760's which I sent back, the serial numbers all suggested that they came from the same production batch..

Eventually I got a Nuvi 770 which has been fine. I understand that it's not a problem with the basic design as the 770 is really just a 760 with more memory, but it's probably a fault with a batch of components used during a production run.

This is not a DIY repair; contact Garmin even if your unit is out of warranty as they might offer a goodwill repair for free or at reduced cost.

Garmin Nuvi stopped working and won't restart

Got a Garmin Nuvi 260. Same problem. I read the booklet. There's a reset button on the bottom. Disconnect from power. Push the reset button. Connect back to power. Now it works. The reset button is tiny and looks more like just text on the bottom sticker than it does a button. But push it anyway.

Garmin Nuvi GPS Stopped working

Hey everyone I might have the solution:

Just got done "fixing" mine, turns out it didn't need any fixing whatsoever, just an update.

I had the same problem most of you seem to have:

Device: StreetPilot C340 worked great when I bought it and for months until one day, it just doesn't turn right?

I was halfway done with tech support for an RMA request, (some of you might still need this) and that's when I noticed the usb input on the side of the device (like most of you I thought, why the hell does it even have one?) I plugged my universal camera usb cord into the pc, (At this point the device was on! and charging too!) and went to the garmin website, feel free to search but you will end up with this page:

pretty straight forward after this, follow the step by step depending on whether you have a mac or pc, download and run the "webupdater" mine was for windows, so I ran this all the way through and bam your good to go, you even have the option of updating the voice and language preference after the initial updates.

hope this helped everyone!
