Customer Question

When I turn on my ignition all I get on my Nuvi 1490 is the Garmin logo and about 1/4" of the green loading line then it goes dark and will not turn on either manually or by unplugging and plugging back in. Same results when I plug it in to my laptop.
I can plug my 1450 in to the same vehicle and it works fine
