Caring for Your nüvi
Your nüvi contains sensitive
electronic components that can be
permanently damaged if exposed
to excessive shock or vibration. To
minimize the risk of damage to your
nüvi, avoid dropping your unit and
operating it in high-shock and highvibration environments.
Cleaning the Unit
The nüvi is constructed of highquality materials and does not
require user maintenance other than
cleaning. Clean the outer casing
of the unit (not the touchscreen)
using a cloth dampened with a mild
detergent solution, and then wipe
it dry. Avoid chemical cleaners and
solvents that can damage plastic
components.
nüvi 1200/1300/1400 Series Owner’s Manual
Cleaning the Touchscreen
Clean the touchscreen with a soft,
clean, lint-free cloth. Use water,
isopropyl alcohol, or eyeglass
cleaner, if needed. Apply the liquid
to the cloth, and then gently wipe the
touchscreen.
Protecting Your nüvi
• Do not store the nüvi where
prolonged exposure to extreme
temperatures can occur, because
it can cause permanent damage.
• Do not expose the nüvi to water.
Contact with water can cause this
unit to malfunction.
• Although a PDA stylus can be

Appendix
Avoiding Theft
• To avoid theft, remove the unit
and mount from sight when not
in use. Remove the residue left
on the windshield by the suction
cup.
• Do not keep your unit in the
glove compartment.
• Register your product at
http://my.garmin.com.
• Use the Garmin Lock feature. See
below for more information.
Locking Your nüvi
Garmin Lock is a theft-deterrent
system that locks your nüvi. Each
time you turn on the nüvi, enter the
PIN or drive to the security location.
46
1. Touch Tools > Settings >
Security.
2. Touch the button below Garmin
Lock.
3. Enter a 4-digit PIN and drive to a
security location.
What is a Security Location?
Your security location should be a
location you return to often, such as
your home. If the nüvi has satellite
signals and you are at the security
location, you do not need to enter
the PIN.
NOTE: If you forget your PIN
and your security location, you
must send your nüvi to Garmin
to get it unlocked. You must also
send a valid product registration
or proof of purchase.

nüMaps Guarantee™
To receive one free map update
(if available), register your nüvi at
http://my.garmin.com within 60 days
of acquiring satellites and driving
with your nüvi. You are not eligible
for the free map update if you
register by phone or wait longer than
49
Appendix
60 days after the first time you drive
with your nüvi.
Additional Maps
You can purchase additional maps
for your nüvi. To see a list of maps
that are compatible with your nüvi,
go to your nüvi product page on the
Garmin Web site (www.garmin
.com), and click the Maps tab.
About GPS Satellite
Signals
Your nüvi must acquire GPS
(Global Positioning System) satellite
signals in order to navigate. If you
are indoors, near tall buildings or
trees, or in a parking garage, your
nüvi may not acquire satellites. Go
outside to an area free from tall
obstructions to use your nüvi.
When your nüvi has acquired
satellite signals, the signal strength
50
bars on the Main menu are green
. When it loses satellite signals,
the bars turn red or clear
.
For more information about GPS, go
to www.garmin.com/aboutGPS.
Extras and Optional
Accessories
For more information about optional
accessories, go to http://buy.garmin
.com or www.garmin.com/extras, or
contact your Garmin dealer.
Custom Points of Interest
Use the POI Loader to load custom
points of interest (POIs) onto your
nüvi. POI databases are available
from various companies on the
Internet. Some custom databases
contain alert information for points,
such as safety cameras and school
zones.
nüvi 1200/1300/1400 Series Owner’s Manual
Appendix
Go to www.garmin.com/extras, and
click POI Loader to install the POI
Loader onto your computer. For
more information, refer to the POI
Loader Help file. Press F1 to open
the Help file.
To view your Custom POIs, touch
Where To? > Extras > Custom
POIs.
To change the proximity alert
settings, touch Tools > Settings
> Proximity Points > Proximity
Alerts.
To delete the Custom POIs from
your nüvi, connect your nüvi to your
computer. Open the POI folder in the
nüvi drive or the memory card drive.
Delete the file titled poi.gpi.
Safety Cameras
Safety camera information is
available in some locations. Check
http://my.garmin.com for availability.
For these locations, the nüvi includes
the locations of hundreds of safety
cameras. Your nüvi alerts you when
you are approaching a safety camera
and can warn you if you are driving
too fast. The data is updated at least
weekly, so you always have access to
the most up-to-date information.
You can purchase a new region
or extend an existing subscription
at any time. Each region that you
purchase has an expiration date.
Caution: Garmin is not
responsible for the accuracy of,
or the consequences of using,
a custom POI or safety camera
database.

Troubleshooting
Problem/Question
Solution/Answer
My nüvi never gets
satellite signals.
Take your nüvi out of parking garages and away
from tall buildings and trees. Remain stationary for
several minutes.
The suction cup
will not stay on my
windshield.
Clean the suction cup and windshield with rubbing
alcohol. Dry with a clean, dry cloth. Mount the
suction cup as described on page 2.
My nüvi does not
charge in my vehicle.
Check the fuse in the vehicle power cable (see page
47).
Ensure the vehicle is turned on and is supplying
power to the power outlet.
Your nüvi can only charge between 32°F and 113°F
(between 0°C and 45°C). If the nüvi is placed in
direct sunlight or in a hot environment, it cannot
charge.
My battery does not
stay charged for very
long.
To maximize the time between charges, turn down
the backlight. Touch Tools > Settings > Display >
Brightness.
How do I clear all of
my user data?
Hold your finger on the lower‑right corner of the
nüvi screen while it is turning on. Keep your finger
pressed until the message appears. Touch Yes to
clear all user data.
nüvi 1200/1300/1400 Series Owner’s Manual57
Appendix
Problem/Question
Solution/Answer
My battery gauge
does not seem
accurate.
Allow the unit to fully discharge, and fully charge it
(without interrupting the charge cycle).
The touchscreen is
not responding to my
touches.
Calibrate the touchscreen as described on
pages 44–45.
How do I know my
nüvi is in USB mass
storage mode?
When your nüvi is in USB mass storage mode, a
picture of a nüvi connected to a computer is shown.
Also, you should see two new removable disk drives
listed in My Computer.
My computer never
senses that the nüvi
is connected.
1. Unplug the USB cable from your computer.
2. Turn off the nüvi.
3. Plug the USB cable into a USB port on
your computer and into your nüvi. The nüvi
automatically turns on and goes into USB mass
storage mode. Ensure your nüvi is connected to
a USB port and not a USB hub.

Problem/Question
Solution/Answer
I cannot see any new
removable drives in
my list of drives.
If you have several network drives mapped on your
computer, Windows can have trouble assigning
drive letters to your nüvi drives. See your operating
system Help file to learn how to map or assign drive
letters.
How can I find
restaurants near the
hotel I will be staying
at in the future?
Save the hotel in your Favorites. See page 12 for
more information on Favorites. You can then search
near the hotel for restaurants.
1. Touch Where To? > Near.
2. Select A Favorite Destination.
3. Select a destination.
4. Touch Points of Interest > Food and Drink.
5. Select a category. Your nüvi searches for
locations near the hotel.
6. Select a restaurant.
My phone will not
connect to the nüvi.
Ensure you have a nüvi with Bluetooth. See page iv.
Touch Tools > Settings > Bluetooth. Verify that the
Bluetooth field is set to Enabled.
Ensure your phone is turned on and is less than 33
feet (about 10 meters) away from your nüvi.
See www.garmin.com/bluetooth for more help.
