Why won’t my GPS turn on?

Even after charging my device, when I press the power button, the GPS is not turning on. I have even tried replacing the battery, and it is still not turning on.

Is this a good question?

I am so not impressed with the Garmin Nuvi that I purchased 2 months ago. It is always turning off and unable to get is to work when driving. This is the second time in 2 months since I purchased it that it is not working. At this point I am ready to try a more reliable GPS. This is so frustrating to me at this point. My old GPS did not have 1/90th of the problems I an experiencing with this piece of garbage. Very unhappy with this device.

Very unreliable and difficult to get help to fix the stupid product that only works occasionallyl

There could be multiple reasons why your device is not turning on. Consider checking to see if your charger is working properly by testing it on a separate device. If it is not a defective charger, then there may be more serious issues such as a faulty motherboard or display screen. For more information regarding a defective motherboard or screen damage, please refer to the Garmin Nuvi 2589LMT troubleshooting page here.

The Nuvi 65 powering system is the most frustrating, mind bogglingly perverted and useless device I have ever owned. I love the Garmin free maps an updates but the power nightmare should simply not be an issue. I'd like a refund even out of guarantee. Shame on you Garmin. How the !&&* can you d design and develop such junk.

I find the device totally unreliable and therefor mostly unusable . Everything other than this operates fine and in correct manner. There most certainly is a design flaw in the powering/charging/data setup. Who the !&&* needs this hastle. Back to older maps and my old flipping tomtom.

I had the same exact problem and was ready to pull my hair out and bring it back to BestBuy to get it fixed.After it was not charging in our car, I connected it to a desktop. It still would not charge so I plugged it into my portable charger and my Garmin started up just fine.

It is a faulty charger that can be easily replaced but causes

much frustration when you are in traffic depending on it.

I had a similar problem...

Searching through the internet, I found that holding down the power button reset my device.

So with a little search, you can find someone who already had the problem & was kind enough to post it to the interwebs.

Thanks, my Garmin 58 LM is back up and running for my delivery job!

I also have the 55LM unit as a backup

Both are running flawlessly for over the 3 years that I owned them used from Craig's list.

I also own 2 older 1300 series with lifetime map updates. Still works to this day, used from Craig's list as well

Also had a Magellan GPS, but prefer the interface of the Garmin

My Garmin Nuvi we'll just shut down and refuse to turn back on. Sometimes it will come back on if I hold the power button down but most of the time it will go for days or even a couple of weeks without me being able to turn it back on. It works great when it works though!
