Great tool kunix!
Thanks for the great tool. Works with my nüvi 760
Work also on nuvi 250.
Please write HWIDs. Nuvi 250 - 3 different devices.
Sony SL10=>HP 1930=>1940=>Toshiba e755=>Loox N520=>Acer n311+Huawei ETS688=> Fujitsu-Siemens Loox N560 WM6=>Dell Axim x51v=> Huawei s7 s-105 (FW 2.2.2 Sweden) + Nokia N78. Garmin Forerunner 405. I love flash Garmin devices.
Nuvi 250 HWID 834
Yesterday, my 1490 froze while navigating. Tried to reboot by pressing on/off button for a couple of seconds, unit partially booted and froze at the garmin logo screen. Back home, I tried to connect it to my computer, nuvi did not show up as a removable drive anymore.
Flashed cure firmware with GarminCure3 tool, unit went into mass storage mode ok. Found a number of corrupted files. Deleted corrupted files, made backup of all other files, reformatted nuvi with FAT32 and restored content.
Flashed original firmware with GarminCure3 tool - all problems gone.
Thanks very much, kunix!
I have a Nuvi 1390 and I'm trying use GarminCure3 to restore software on it (it starts with whitescreen, goes to Garmi logo for a few seconds, turns display off and back to Garmin screen and so on). I tried GarminCure3 with different firmware versions: nuvi13xxand14xxseries_GCDFile__570.gcd, nuvi13xxand14xxseries_GCDFile__580.gcd and nuvi13xxand14xxseries_regionfileonly__410.gcd.
I load one of these files into GC3, select CURE and it creates say 097201000570.rgn file, than I start updater.
I put GPS in load mode with a piece of rubber pressing on screen left top corner, hold in place by a clip and turn Nuvi on. It starts with a blank white screen. Updater finds Nuvi on USB port and starts 3 stages of update.
First phase is short (2 -3 seconds ) after which Nuvi screen changes to Garmin logo with "Missing software " message.
If I leave it, Updater gives an error message. I depress Nuvi Power button and it goes back to white screen. Updater continues through two longer erase and update processes and finishes with pop up window "The update was successful"
After this I have the same restarting Nuvi.
If I try run Garmin Webupdater it gives a message that update file is corrupted.
I can see Garmin Device in Windows (XP SP3) Device Manager while screen is blank and it dissapears from Device Manager when Nuvi goes to Garmin screen. I could never see Nuvi drive/folders in My Computer during these processes.
Please help me, let me know what I'm doing wrong and what exact steps I should follow.
Thanks a lot,
I have the same problem as fdiaconu above with 1490......waiting also...
The Cure is only designed to make you see the internal flash drive. The Cure is not bootable.
Once you have used the cure to access the internal flash drive you need to remove the corrupt file or files or format your internal drive as needed. Always delete or rename GUPDATE.GDC from the device (This is not optional).
(What did you do just before the nuvi bricked, did you load a Map ?, Did you load a voice ?).
Next step is to use the cure program to make Original Firmware (Look at picture in first post on this page).
Next flash the original firmware. To get your nuvi into pre-boot mode you dont need clips or rubbers or anything like that.
Switch the nuvi OFF, Hold Your finger on the screen top left , Plug in the usb cable. (Power switch not needed)
You can also try to flash your logo.bin
