    nuvi 5x seem to have a problem like 14xx where the USB socket connections to the MO are prone to fail. Try taping the cable to the rear of the case to put some slight upwards pressure on the usb plug and see if the connection to the PC becomes stable. I have a 1490 like that, regardless many updates can be done using txt commands from sd.

    A more permanent but still easy to realise solution could look like this:

    Help, please. Garmin 1490T stuck on splash screen - nothing seems to fix it...

    1) Bricked Garmin 1490T unable to determine FIRMWARE version or HWID since no conection possible to PC and device stuck on 'GARMIN' splash screen.

    2) Was using device in car, on a journey, device rebooted itself and stuck on splash screen.

    3) Symptoms: stuck on 'Garmin' splash screen

    4) Does your pc sees your device ? Sometimes, when trying to access pre-boot mode, the pc starts the 'installing drivers' window. But this always fails and device is 'not recognised'. I have never actually successfully got into pre-boot mode, so am unable to 'backup Nuvi NV (region41/154) with sd', unable to see firmware or HWID, unable to use GarminCure3, unable to use updater etc.

    5) List all the procedures you already tried to unbrick it and their results and errors messages obtained. - see above

    6) Do you have Garmin USB Drivers installed ? Garmin: USB Drivers Updates & Downloads YES - latest Garmin drivers updated and installed on PC

    7) If you don't know HWID get it by Use program G7ToWin to retrieve your HWID - This FAILS. 'Async Init error' message retruned by G7ToWin, G7ToWin then hangs!

    8) Write down if you already read or tried GarminCure3 tool - the new way to create cure firmwares for Garmin devices
    How to unbrick a nüvi - step by step guide. Relucatant to try this since it requires pre-boot mode, which I am unable to access.

    9) Can you reach preboot mode? If no ,have you followed this? Garmin Updater.exe v.2.8.0. No preboot mode possible. Many, many attempts. All failed but one or two trigger PC to try to install drivers. THis always fails despite having installed the latest Garmin drivers myself.

    10) Probably no , but do you have NV backup? Fails

    11) Once you get a reply and a procedure to follow from our experts, please give an accurate reply about what you did and obtained results.

    First be sure to have your USB cable directly connected to PC USB port, no hubs.
    Change USB cable.
    Remove Garmin USB drivers with free version of Revo uninstaller
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    Using deepest option , then redownload and reinstall Garmin USB drivers.
    Prevent Windows to install other drivers for nuvi.
    Retry running G7ToWin to get HWID, wihout it we cannot help you sorry because there are different HWID firmware for your Nuvi series.
    Ignore G7ToWin error, look at G7ToWin thread how to get HWID.
    No preboot mode possible.
    Getting preboot if you get nuvi splash screen is possible, so try again, following carefully [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] instructions.
    Then post again.

    Amazingly, after another hour of trying to get into pre-boot mode the device suddenly decided to boot normally!
    G7ToWin still crashes and hangs - so that's been entirely useless.
    Managed to then connect via USB to computer and run Garmin Updater.
    Updated to 6.30 so (touch wood) all is well again.

    Thanks for earlier advice - not needed in the end but am grateful for swift response.

    Found HWID as 0972 in .xml file on unit, btw!

    What files would I need to backup to allow restore at future date, if things went pear-shaped again, please?

    Do a full files back of the unit's internal file system, including the [hidden] .System folder [in Windows folder options under 'View' tab, enable the radio button for 'Show hidden files, folders and drives' and uncheck 'Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)']. Also very importantly back up your 1490's 'nonvol' region, see here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    There may still be a problem with the device, something has caused it to stick on the start screen. You'd be wise to clear its nonvolatile memory before it happens again: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Inexplicably and randomly sticking on boot can also be a sign of an intermittent failure of the flash chip, it that's the case then there's no software cure and eventually it will die.
