If possible, how do I do a factory reset on a DriveSmart 50. I updated it to the latest map using GE. When GE stated that the update was completed, I unplug it from the computer and attempt to manual start it but nothing happen. I then plug in to the power card in my car and it still did not come on.
Press and hold the bottom right corner of the screen and at the same time press and hold the power button.
... to add to that with some more detail
A factory or master reset is like most Garmins:
1.Start with the device turned off and unplugged from power •To verify the device is powered off and not in standby mode, press and hold down the power button until prompted to turn off the device
2.Power on the device
3.When the first copyright screen appears press and hold the lower right hand corner of the display portion of the touchscreen
4.Remove your finger from the touchscreen when "Erase all user data?" appears
•If text language is not in English, this is the button on the right
Another option to perform a master reset for these devices:
1.Touch View Map
2.Touch the Speed icon
3.Touch and hold the speedometer for approximately 5 seconds
4.Release your touch when the Diagnostics Page displays
5.Touch Clear all user data
6.Touch Yes when prompted to "Erase all user data?"
ok...thanks a million.
How would you be able to do a "Factory" reset if the GPS does NOT come on???
One other thing you could try would be to press and hold the power button for up to a couple of minutes. In the past this process has brought what seemed like a dead Garmin device back to life. This has saved me a few times over the years.
I actually did this on my 265W a few times before I sold it for $50.
