    Garmin keeps freezing

    Hi Guys
    A few weeks ago I exchanged my Garmin 1300T for another 1300T because it kept freezing; I went on my first long journey yesterday and guess what? You got it the new one froze on me.
    Has anyone else had this problem with a Garmin or am I just unlucky?

    Cheers

    Garmin Freezes on Loading

    Hi wandering if anyone could help i have a Garmin Nuvi 1300 - The Sat Nav initially wouldnt connect to the PC or allow me to clear the user data. I managed to get it to connect to the PC by holding the power button down and repeatedly tapping the top left corner of the screen

    I have managed to get it to connect to the PC now with no problems and it clears the data with no issue either however i still have the problem whereby when i turn it on it freezes on the "loading maps." and will not progress any further.

    I took the current.gpx file off the sat nav - cleared the user data and replaced it with current.gpx file renamed to temp.gpx this made no difference.

    I have connected the garmin to the PC and tried to run updates using the Garmin Tool however it says it has the latest firmware - is there any way i could reflash the firmware back to an older copy if so where can i download it?

    Any solution would be great??



    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks in advance.
    I had a similar issue with a faulty SD card. Removing the card resolved the issue.
    The second time I had this fault was a damaged GPI file. Again removing the file resolved the issue.

    I would suggest removing all user data/ gpi files etc and then reinstalling the same firmware to see if that resolves it.

    Beware removing the wrong files!!!!

    You can download the firmware and then drag and drop it onto webupdater (with GPS plugged in). This is also the way to downgrade - but do your research first, some firmware versions can not be downgraded. Search google for firmware for your device. There are a couple of sites out there.

    good luck

    Exclamation GARMIN NUVI - Loading maps

    I recently purchased a Garmin Nuvi 1300 which supports mini SD. I have been looking all over the internet on how to load another map onto the device.

    I have the GMAPPROM.img file and i tried placing it directly on the device using MacOS
    x:/Garmin/GMAPPROM.img and it didnt find my map on the device.

    Would anyone have any clues on how to load my map directly on the device.?!?
