My device will not come on

Things to check: 1. Make sure that your car receptacle has +12VDC. Try another device to confirm. 2. Make sure that the car charger is working properly. Most have a fuse in the tip. It could be blown. It may not be converting +12VDC to +5VDC which is required to power the GPS. Try another charger with the GPS. 3. Common problem with the 25xx series are loose/broken USB charger ports. This will prevent the unit from powering up with an external power source and will prevent the battery from being charged. Eventually the battery will lose its charge and since the USB charging port is loose, the battery will not charge and the unit will appear dead.

HI. I have a Garmin NUVI2597LMT. I notice that it never takes the quickest route and always choses the roads with most traffic. Can I obtain Live Drive to avoid this problem ? My name is Giuseppe Sazi

Go into the navigation settings and choose fastest way option. This has always been a problem with gps devices.

Garmin gps troubleshooting

you do not "obtain" a split screen. It automatically shows the exit of a freeway as you come up to it. you also have to be navigating somewhere not just viewing the maps. if that seems to not be working, try updating the maps as that is bundled with them (junction view)

How do I fix the backlight of my garmin 3205

The LCD display contains both the display and backlight. They are integrated as one piece. Therefore the entire display needs to be replaced. The backlight connections are soldered to the LCD connections. Replace the entire display.

When encountering errors such as "No Map Data Available" and Garmin Express does not recognize your Garmin nuvi, check to see if your Garmin nuvi is out of storage space from your computer. Solution related to the fact that when brought up as the E: drive in windows there were 0 bytes free space on the Garmin nuvi. To get Garmin Express to recognize a unit which is full, do a search on the Windows Drive (E:) for "gmap" then choose "Open file location" This will get into the hidden ".system" directory. From there, delete the largest file map, such as "gmapprom" (or move this file to your hard drive). Afterward, reboot your computer to have Garmin Express software recognize your Garmin nuvi. On older units, also purchase a microSDHC card to be able to store the newest maps, such as the US & Canada 2.6Gb map file, which will not fit on the internal unit alone or a 2Gb card. The Garmin Express software will recognize 4Gb to 32Gb microSDHC Class 10 or UHS-I cards formatted to FAT32 and install the newest maps automatically to them. Some have reported that 4Gb cards are not large enough. I had used a 16Gb SanDisk Ultra PLUS UHS-I card ($10.88 Walmart) successfully on my Garmin nuvi 1450LMT

My garmin nuvi 2225 will not acquire satellites since I brought it to Europe. I loadd maps for the area but it can not find its position.

If the garmin can reach satellites in North America, it will reach satellites anywhere in the world as long as it has a clear line of site to the satellites. Depending where you are, the satellites can be higher or lower in the sky. This means that the garmin in your vehicle may not be able to see the satellites how you have it positioned in your vehicle. Try finding the satellites outside of your vehicle while in Europe. If you can, then the problem is positioning in your vehicle. The satellites are all the same kind no matter where you are.
