Would you like to erase the phonebook entries on your Garmin Nuvi 255W, left over from when you bluetooth paired with your cell phone?
I can help you delete the phone numbers on your Garmin Nuvi 255W.
The phone numbers transferred to your Nuvi are only supposed to be available when your phone is paired to your cell phone. Changing the entry on your phone should allow that entry to show up changed the next time it is paired with the Nuvi. Sometimes, a bluetooth mix up causes entries to be duplicated or entries' phone numbers to get repeated.
To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data (this hard reset will remove the phonebook info from your nuvi), and then updating your Nuvi' firmware to make sure the nuvi and cell phone bluetooth process runs as smoothly as possible in the future.
Follow these three steps to take to get your Nuvi 255W running like new:
