How to Reset Garmin Nuvi 5000?
Many users face problems while resetting their Garmin GPS Devices. If you are getting problems in loading maps, or there is a blank screen problem, your GPS device freezes unexpectedly, the device is not working properly, it isn’t showing the exact and correct location, your device is unable to find a certain location or address then it’s a high time that you should consider resetting your Garmin Nuvi 5000. You should reset your device so that it starts working properly and this problem can be due to storage issues or some minor battery issue because the battery saves the data in case you go offline. Hence, it is recommended to reset your device if you are facing the above-mentioned issues.
There are two types of reset-first is soft reset and another is hard reset. Usually what happens after hard resetting is that it erases all your data which you have bookmarked or saved in your device and set your device as a factory device exactly same as you have received your product. But soft reset is just like rebooting your device and it ensures that your saved data does not get erased. However, if you are facing the aforementioned problems and issues then experts recommend that you do a hard reset and then download all things again.
