    Same problem- Was working fine. Stopped to get gas, turned car off, unit displayed that power was off and to push a key to stay on battery. Did not push key. Unit turned off. Could not turn it back on in any mode.

    Garmin 770. Problems powering on, usually after it has been on and I slide the power button to the left to turn off while leaving the car temporarily. Usually have to wait several hours and then it will power up. I assume this is an overheating problem, but it is more than annoying and has left me having to use my phone to navigate around at times. I have to assume Garmin is aware of this!!

Had the same problem-try this- leave your nuvi off for about 4 hours. Push the power button to the right(lock position) and then to the left (power on position) and let go. I suspect temperature (getting overheated is the problem. This worked for me.

Garmin nuvi 40 will not charge

Sounds like a defective unit. You've tried everything their support people would walk you through.

My nuvi 1450 won't turn on and the garmin website updater won't reconize it hooked up to my computer even my computer won't reconize it.

I had the same problem with mine and got it working by doing the following while on the phone to Garmin. Plug your charger cord into the device and your computer (do not use a laptop, you need the higher current from a desktop for this). Hold the power button down for as long as it takes for the Garmin logo to display, this could be as much as 1 minute. As soon as the image shows on the screen, release the power button. If your Garmin isn't completely shot you will see it boot up.
If you have the Garmin Web Updater program on your computer, run it and update the operating system software to insure you have the latest greatest from Garmin. Once that is done, update your XML data files - they'll be on the list of updates if you need them. Once those are done you can update any voice or language files you'd like.
Lastly, leave your GPS plugged in at least an hour or two to give it a charge. Overnight would be better to insure your battery is really well powered up.
At this point your Garmin should function normally. The Garmin tech I spoke with told me some units start acting funky when the battery runs down too low and if it's REALLY dead it won't even take a charge or power up when you hook up your charger cord. Try holding the power button for as long as it takes to get a spark & you should be on your way. If not, call Garmin's support number for your locale & they're do their best to get you back up & running again.
Cheers, Jeff

I've borrowed a friend's Garmin for a trip and when I use the car charger, it doesn't display anything. Once I disconnect, it becomes visible again. I'm going on a long trip and worry. ...

Assuming there is power at the cigarette lighter jack - turn the Nuvi off - then connect the charger. It should display charging battery or charging complete.
If nothing - does it charge with the wall charger? If so check the fuse in the car charger - it's usually in the tip of the charger which can be turned to get the fuse out.

My Garmin starts then turns off. I have kept it pluged in my car but it will not charge.

Assuming the fuse of the car charger and cigarette lighter jack are ok - it can be charged with a AC mains battery charger?

Has never charged, even after extended time periods - both with car charger and usb. Any tricks I'm missing. I've tried "ejecting" it but it just goes back to showing computer connection....

Sounds like the internal battery won't hold a charge and needs to be replaced. If you're "handy" you could do this yourself, but it's not for the faint of heart, and replacement batteries are available on the Internet. Here's a video that shows the procedure for disassembling and reassembling it to install the replacement:

My garmin nuvi 1300 powers offnright after i power it on how can i fix this problem

First you need to check if the battery is well charged. Connect it to a charger and allow it to charge for about 2 hours, then try to turn it on. If that does not help, then change the battery of your nuvi to see if it will power on, if it stays on, then it means the solution to the problem is getting a new battery. Check also if the charger is intact by testing it on another garmin nuvi device, if it does not charge, then it means it was not charging the old battery and the solution to such problem is for you to get another charger.
Either ways, the problem is that the gps devices battery is weak and cannot power on the gps.

Garmin Stopped working altogether

Try connecting the GPS to your computer with the included USB cable. If it charges this way then you can assume that the Charger is defective.

Garmin will fix or replace a defective GPS within the first year. Go to then click on the support tab. You can follow the menu selections to obtain warranty support.
