ok, i seem to be getting somewhere now
I've now managed to get the file onto the GarminCure tool and it has now processed the firmware.
It is showing a file in the "Output file" box ( a .rgn file)
What do I do now?
Ok, don't worry I think I've managed it>
I pressed Updater and pre booted the Nuvi. The PC has recognised and it is now currently loading new Software... Yay!!
Hi Lolypop, Catymag,
The software update has now finished (successfully) and the PC now sees my Garmin connected via USB.
The Garmin is still connected and the screen simply shows the Garmin name.
So do I now disconnect and switch on as normal? And should the device now be back to it former self??
Aghh! What am I doing wrong??
Since following the instructions above for the GarminCure3 tool, I managed to update mu Nuvi 1310 with the latest software from Lolypop's link. It loaded successfully using the updater tool and then the screen on the Nuvi displayed Garmin.
Since then I disconnected, turned the unit off then back on. The device starts up but only shows the initial screen ( the one with the cat picture) Nothing else!!! It just stays there.
I did then connect to Garmin web updater which stated I need a newer version. Succesfully did that then it told me to disconnect and restart device.
Nothing ! Same as above it just stays on the cat screen
Have I updated with the wrong firmware or something?
What did you do just before the nuvi stopped working ?
Did you load a Map ?
Did you load some POI.
Describe here what happened just before the nuvi crashed please.
The unit wasn't being used for a when we tried to switch it on it simply froze on the initial screen which says "loading maps"
Now that You've loaded the cure can you see the files and folders inside the nuvi ?
If you can delete /.system gupdate.gcd and go back to garmincure3.
Do the same as you did before except this time do not "make cure" use "make firmware."
Then reflash the Nuvi again with the firmware. It's worth a try.
Maybe you are still running the cure firmware now.
And what is this "cat" you speak of, the screen should display the Garmin logo.
