Has anyone had a Garmin Nuvi simply die? We were driving along and the Nuvi appeared to be working fine. Looked out the window for a few seconds, looked back at the Nuvi and the screen had gone dark. No resets ( soft or hard ) would get it going again. Eventually got a replacement from Garmin and a stern warning about not storing it in a car when the temperature is between 5°F to 158°F (–15°C to 70°C). A parked car in Canada will easily surpass both temperatures in the winter and summer! Guess we don't have to worry too much about the Nuvi getting stolen as we obviously can't leave it in the car very often.
and that is why I carry mine with me at all times, theft and temp
You'd think they'd make it a little more durable since it is supposed to be used in a car. Imagine if they built car radios to the same standards....
I got a C530. It died after just one week after I bought it. I returned it. My Nuvi 350 has no problem after three months.
With the 530, did you do a firmware update as soon as you bought it?
