Let's try a reset on the GPS:

  1. Ensure the device is powered off
  2. Press and hold Page and Enter simultaneously
  3. Power on the GPS while continuing to press both buttons
  4. Release the buttons once the Do you really want to erase all user data? message appears
  5. Select Yes

If you are unable to see any of the prompts, please plug in the Garmin and while it is plugged in, try the steps above. If that does not work either, please reply back here.
