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.

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.

Nuvi 200 can't see screen


They are not that bright light conditions. But if you cannot see anything at all something is wrong. Try it in a completely dark room and see if you can see the menu for settings - brightness.
