The Garmin Nuvi 1300 was working gret. It was a Chrismas gift. It just stopped working it will not come on at all the screen is blank black. No signal will not turn on at all. Did not drop it or and other...


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.

You can restore the Nuvi 205 system software to its factory condition by running Garmin's WebUpdater service. You may also want to try a hard reset of your Nuvi.

These are both good solutions for Nuvi's that start acting up.

I hope that helps.

I just turned on my 2008 nuvi200 and instead of the opening screen to choose Map or Select Destination, i get a grey windwo pop-up that says ''No detailed maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot...


It sounds like the nuvi's file system has become corrupted, so it no longer sees the maps that were loaded into it. You might connect the USB cable between the nuvi and your computer to see what you can see when it acts like a USB storage device.

Also, if you haven't already registered your nuvi with the Garmin web site, you should. They have a downloadable browser extension that should prove helpful. If it complains that you have no maps loaded, then you'll have something to hang your hat on.

Assuming the nuvi is otherwise healthy, this might be the time to purchase the current map version, which will download directly into the unit through the USB port.

I recieve a garmin as a gift @ it now has a code lock on it how can i unlock my garmin 260


The Garmin Lock is a theft-deterrent system that locks your nuvi. Each time you turn the on the nuvi, you would have to enter the PIN or drive to the security location. (where it was orig programmed)
To set the Garmin Lock on the device:
  1. From the Main Menu, touch the Wrench (Tools) icon.
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Touch Security. (you may need to touch the down arrow button)
  4. Touch the tab labeled Off next to the Garmin Lock heading.
  5. The nuvi will prompt you to enter a four-digit pin number.
  6. Enter a four-digit code as your pin.
  7. Re-enter the four-digit pin.
  8. Go to a 'Security Location' and let the unit acquire satellites (the security location will unlock the unit if the pin is forgotten or lost).
  9. Set the 'Security Location' by touching Set.
The Garmin Lock has now been turned On.
