Loader Loading......

 

I updated my maps last night and now when my 1690 tries to restart I get the message "Loader Loading" at the top of my screen. Also I cannot see the garmin when connected to my computer. Any suggestions?

Did the maps download ok?

From the Garmin support page:
https://buy.garmin.com/support/productSupport/kanaCase.faces...
If the program still will not open, or the update is not installed, a program called .NET Framework Setup Verification Tool may help determine the problem. You can find information about this tool at the following website:

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/10/13/8999004....

You can download this application from the following location:

http://blogs.msdn.com/cfs-file.ashx/__key/CommunityServer-Co...

Once you download the application, you will need to check each version of .NET Framework installed on your computer. To do this, please follow the steps below:

1. Extract the contents of the downloaded .zip file
2. Run netfx_setupverifier.exe
3. In the drop down menu select the first .NET Framework option
4. Click the Verify Now button
5. If there are no errors, it will say “Current status: Product verification succeeded!”
6. If it found an error, it will say “Error, unable to verify”
7. Repeat steps 1-4, but change the drop down to select the other versions one at a time.

If the .NET Framework Setup Verification Tool has found an issue with any of the installed versions you will need to run a repair.

To repair the .NET Framework follow these directions:

Windows XP

1. Go to the Start menu
2. Click Control Panel
3. Click Add or Remove Programs
4. Find Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile
5. Click on Change/Remove
6. Select Repair .NET Framework 4 Client Profile to its orignial state

Windows Vista / 7

1. Select Windows icon in bottom left hand corner of screen
2. Select Control Panel
3. Select Programs and Features
4. Find Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile
5. Select Uninstall/Change
6. Select Repair .NET Framework 4 Client Profile to its orignial state

After running the repair and the Garmin Map Update still fails try to install the standalone version of the .NET Framework installation with the link below.

Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer):

If the standalone installation does not resolve the issue run the Garmin Map Update on another computer, or contact Microsoft for assistance in correcting the damaged installation.

"loader loading" link at Garmin broken

Boxcar got some info that might solve the problem.

When I went to look this morning, I did a search for "Loader loading" (within quotes) and got a result that had a page title of
"Why does my Nuvi 1000 series device display the message"

and an abstract of
"If your device is displaying the message Loader Loading during power up,the file that is used to update your device may have become corrupted. ... "

That seemed to be a pointer to something useful but the link did not take me to the FAQ or Answer or whatever.

Reported this (after much effort) by e-mail to support but don't expect much.

Hmm

Hmm, could be. I've seen several folks here that have had issues with nonexistent, corrupt or update-needed .NET Framework on a Windows computer that have resulted in a failed City Navigator map update, but the problems have been seen on the computer end of things. The OP's problem is with the GPS post-update so I suspect a problem with the GPS--maybe a corrupt file, a GPS disconnect from the computer before the update is complete or something else. Those with .Net Framework issues with map update problems also report that their computer had been issuing warnings to them about a problem with .Net Framework even before the person tried to update their Garmin map. In any event, it's always worth a shot going to Windows Update (use the detailed rather than the recommended update option with XP) and see if there's a .NET Framework available for installation or updating. Note: this update takes quite a while to install--be patient.

The computer now not being able to "see" the GPS is also worrisome, maybe from a corrupt or missing driver standpoint.

I hope the OP finds a solution--and really hope that if a solution is found, that it's reported back to us here.

As someone else had reported in an earlier thread, if Garmin requires a specific .NET Framework from Microsoft (or if Administrator Rights are needed on the computer to perform the update), then Garmin's software should alert the person of what's needed to be done before the map update download and installation is allowed.

PS--I'm not an IT wizard or programmer and have no idea what .NET Framework does or how it works, but I do try to think things through logically and to me, a failure of .NET Framework would result in an error on a computer rather than the GPS. I'm always open to be shown wrong in my assumptions...
