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.
The Nuvi 2589LMT is a GPS device manufactured by Garmin. It features detailed maps and precise navigation GPS. Part number: 010-01187-01.
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.
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
We all see that there is a problem so, what’s the solution? My GARMIN is my baby, I always relied upon its service to get me from point A to point B and back to point A again, home. Can they be fix or are they considered throw-aways. I purchase mine from Radio Shack years ago.
