    Default [Help] Short Pre-boot mode, cant get to flash

    hi guys,

    i have this USA version of Garmin 1350. it just refused to boot and get stuck at Garmin logo and you know it...

    but i try to go into pre-boot mode to cure/format/update. it just drives me crazy.

    i follow the instruction below. installed garmin usb drivers. It just boot into pre-boot, my pc found it fine. Webupdater found it but with some weird marking. but then, within 20secs. it just gone! and i cant get it flash or format in such short time. within this 20secs, my Win7 x64 detected garmin usb but cant see a removable storage.

    1. Power OFF your Nuvi.
    2. Press and keep holding the most left upper corner of the LCD screen
    3. Power ON your Nuvi but DON NOT release your finger either from Power button nor from LCD screen (keep both pressed until the procedure ends)
    4. You will notice Nuvi boots in Pre-Boot mode. Now quickly connect your USB cable.

    Anyone have have idea?

    I don't like that you keep holding the power button because normally people do it to forcibly turn off devices.

    Also you won't see removable storage in pre-boot mode. It's primarily used for firmware updates.

    And forget about WebUpdater, use updater.exe instead for curing.

    I usually put 13xx/14xx into pre-boot mode in the following way:
    0) Run updater.exe
    1) Ensure that the devices is completely turned off (sometimes its turned on but the screen is black) and disconnected from the PC
    2) Press and hold the upper left screen corner
    3) Connect the device to the PC (it will start booting soon) and wait until updater.exe detects the device
    4) Start the update process
    5) Now you can release the upper left screen corner

    When flash is over you close the window of updater.exe.
    If all go OK your nuvi connect in mass storage and after you disconnect from PC your nuvi work.
