Question about Garmin 010-00358-00 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Garmin GPS I don't use my GPS much but when I tried to use it the other day it simply doesn't turn on. I tried it in 2 cars, just in case it was the plug, to no avail. I know it needs an update. Could this be it? It is about 3 years old. It is a street Pilot c340 Thank you Ann McDonald [email protected]

Our GPS keeps saying low battery and then going off. thought it was the cigarette lighter that wasn't working, got a new fuse, but it still says low battery. opened the back, now what


Let me see if I understand your question.

You had your GPS plugged into your vehicle power outlet (AKA cigarette lighter) and you thought you were charging the battery all along. However, your power outlet was not "live" (you checked?) so you replaced the fuse. Your GPS was telling you LOW BATTERY and turned off, and that was why you checked the fuse and it was blown, right?

So now, your power outlet is hot (you checked it right) and you have a good 12 volts DC. You have your GPS plugged in and it still says LOW BATTERY and shuts off. Is there a fuse in the GPS plug? Have you checked for this? Are you able to check the voltage where the cord plugs into the GPS with a volt meter?

There is that possibility that everything is well with your power supply - but you must check and assure you have power. If it is, and your GPS still says LOW BATTERY, I would be inclined to take it for a drive with it plugged in and turned off. At the end of the drive, try it again. (Is your power outlet HOT when the car is not running?) If all is well with the power and you have tried to charge it, the battery may not be accepting the charge due to a battery fault. I don't know if you have the tools required to change the battery or not. If you do and if you can find the battery (there are lots of batteries available at many sites) and it does not cost more than a replacement GPS, I would suggest you give it a try. What the heck, it doesn't work now so you don't have much to loose except the price of the battery.

You might find the battery you reqire at a FixYa.com advertiser to be found here on this page. Your support of FixYa.com advertisers will be appreciated by the site.

If I missed the ball, please provide a little more detail on the matter and I will try again.

There it is all in under 10 minutes.

Unit is one year old. Worked fine this morning, got back into car and GPS asking set-up questions but a the time prompt it flashes off and starts the set up over againi with language prompt. Keeps...


try this originally posted by gt3rs i just did it and it worked for me Here is a solution that worked in my case (constant reboots after voice select)
  1. Plug your tomtom into your PC.
  2. Run TomTom Home
  3. Select the option to run your TomTom through your PC (TT Home)
  4. You should be greated with the select language screen
  5. Then simply select language etc.
  6. When you get to the voice selection: select a voice (here TTHome should freeze) <- also strangely enough notice the cancel button doesn't on the screen (as it does when doing this on the device)
  7. Don't panic TT Home should start working again in a few seconds
  8. Disconnect your TomTom and that should have solved the problem, the normal map screen should show up upon starting up your TomTom
This solved the issue for me, hope it does for you good luck!

My tom tom wont turn on where is the reset bitton


look for a small hole on the outside case near the sd card reader. might need a paperclip or pin to poke the microswitch inside the hole. simply clicking the switch doesn't work, try holding it for 5 seconds then try to power up. Common problem with GPS devices, (my mio included) is after being plugged in for a long time, the battery life becomes nil and it relies upon the charger. Check tom to xl for further problem solving. google search TOM TOM XL won't power up.

Hi, im having problems with my gps, it doesn t turn on, i don´t know what happened, it is pretty new...i used it just a few days. thank you


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W 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.

Seeking the repair of my tomtom Go 910


One suggestion is to plug the Tom Tom using the temporary power cord to you home circuit (not the power source from the car). That worked for me. Sometime the Tom Tom shuts down when left in the hot car requiring a reset. Then the best way is to plug in at home and restart. Try it, otherwise I can't help.
