I have a Nuvi 650, which cannot start up now :cry:
It happens after my wife unplugs the device from my laptop halfway through copying the new maps.
I have tried the hard reset - clearing all user data - but still the same problem.
The device will just hang on the start up screen where it says loading maps... :hair:

Can someone help me please.. what should i do next :prayer:

It is almost same my last time problem about loading maps.
The only way is... you need to send back to your dealer (mostly there will send it back to Taiwan for repairing & need to wait at least 1 month).
So next time, you can not dirently copy your map to your nuvi.
You should copy it to your SD card first.
If no problem to loading the map, than you can install it to your nuvi or still using SD card.
For me... I like to use SD card to avoid any problem for loading map

Owners of the garmin nuvi line of gps navigation devices can create their own
personal vehicle icons to supplement or replace the vehicles that ship with the unit.
Follow this LINK and there are many other instructions for GPS related, use search function for GPS.... :thumbsup:

Bro,

If you have backup your Nuvi main memory and the GPS can still be detected by your PC try copying all the files or the just the map back to the Nuvi. If this doesn't work.... your LAST chance is to format. I have not tried formatting... don't know how to flash back its O/S or Firmware but it is worth a try if your unit is out of warranty. I presume after formatting you can run the Firmware update to load it.... [-o< Don't try this unless absolutely necessary.... OK?... cheers!

Bro osakachan,

Thanks for the effort. Wouldn't it be easier to give a link to Garmin and let the Members select their own choice of GPS for side by side comparison?...cheers!

I agree with you Bro Moey, with the online side by side comparison, it's much more easier to see. Here is the link, https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=134.

I realised comparing the spec in Garmin does not tell much. Eg. 670 is more ex than 760. Also why is 255W spec is quite similar to the higher model range but yet cheaper. I think with the experience from brothers here, it may helps to gives a clearer answers.

IMHO, below mentioned drives the price :-k

1. Pre-loaded maps or no maps
2. Advanced Functional features
3. Size of Memory
