    Default Bricked Nuvi1490

    Hey Guys,

    I've been trawling through previous posts and have all the tools that I seem to need, though I have a problem that seems to have been touched on and not resolved and I was wondering if I was doing something wrong.

    So today I updated my firmware using the Garmin Express software on my Mac, I then stupidly and completely accidentally formatted my GPS. I switched over to my PC after looking at a bunch of suggestions on here and on another site regarding RMPrepUSB. So here is the issue.

    I am able to get my Garmin into preboot mode (windows gets it in device manager) but RMprepUSB cant find it. GarminCure3 can see it, but I cant flash any firmware to it as I keep getting a "no updates are available" error. meanwhile my Garmin is stuck on the boot logo, before long the preboot expires(?) and the device disconnects and remains on the boot logo.

    What can I do to fix this?

    Any help is much appreciated

    Have you used the right HWID firmware?
    Do you have a nuvi files backup? Garmindevice.xml to look for HWID?

    Check HWID before doing anything.
