    Try this:



    Unplug the power and USB cables to remove external power
    Place your thumbnail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the faceplate and gently pull off the faceplate
    Press the Reset button for 3-5 seconds
    Connect the C340 to a power source using the power cable



    If after this still nothing the unit needs replacemnet already..



    Hope that helps

I have mio s600 and during the travel the car charger has stopped working, so the navigation automatically started to use it's one battery. After I pulled out the charger, and sticked it in again,


If you are using the lighter plug for charging it may have a fuse inside the plug itself the plugs into the lighter socket,,,,,look for a fuse there or if have a volt meter check for voltage reaching the unit when plugged that way If voltage is good to the unit from the car source the battery may be bad, either not getting a voltage for charging or battery not holding a charge.

Where can i get a new screen for my 305 edge


Hi Gary,

Your best bet on this would be to allow Garmin to handle it. These devices are so small and require steady hands and precision tools to perform the repair work. I checked out Garmin's site for "Out of Warranty" repair rates (even if under warranty - it wouldn't covered for the kind of accident it suffered), and the good news is: for just $79, it will be either be repaired or replaced with a factory "Newly-Overhauled" 305 GPS. It will also be updated with the latest software and come with a 90 day warranty.

You can arrange for this repair completely online by following the instructions on this page:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/outofwarranty.html

I hope this helps & good luck!

It stopped working. Has been plugged into car....have not run it on batteries. What can I do to get it started again?


Ensure your car plugg gets power (may need the car engine to be started).
After getting power device should start after some time (1 minute max) if battery is completely down.

If battery was not down please perform cold reset, return to factory settings (as described in manual troubleshooting at the end)

Press & maintain lower right corner of screen while starting and after started until you get a screen where you are asked to confirm data being erased.

While using our GPS it stopped working; unplugged and plugged back in and the screen would not come up


Hi clarkm

this is a very common problem with your model gps

the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

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.

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.

Battery charge cord


Take a look at the plastic fitting where the cable goes into the GPS. Ours broke which caused the same problem. Easier to buy another one used on ebay than try to get it fixed. Magellan started off as a great company with a fantastic product but I think the competition has eclipsed them. Too bad really.
