Nuvi 30, 40, 50... Screen Freeze on Bootup
« on: November 03, 2012, 07:38:02 AM »
A few months ago I bought a Nuvi 50LM and last week when I went to use it again the screen froze on GARMIN.  It would not go away. I went to the operating manual and found nothing to fix this problem.  I was sure that Heat had destroyed its internal workings since it stays on the windshield 24-7.  Fortunately I went to the Garmin.com website and found support then looked for solution to problem.  Nada. 

I then went to the chat screen and got help.  Solution is found in the FAQs for the item.  It is a lengthy process that I won't go into here but you download 2 files and then follow the directions exactly and when finished the unit is functional with a new operating system that corrects the problem. 

The new version is 1.70.

Sounds like fun. Thanks for the heads up :)

In a nutshell, I get claustrophobic.
