You'll have to do a complete reset:
turn off the GPS, and as it turns on
hold down the lower right corner of the screen.

Does your Garmin Nuvi 265W GPS get stuck or freeze at startup, or when loading maps?

Looking to reflash the firmware / system software for your Garmin GPS device?

Replacing the brains of your Garmin GPS is the surest way to resolve freezing, hanging, and erratic behavior. Keeping the system software and firmware in your Garmin GPS current and up-to-date is also the best way to keep it performing well.

Your GPS may not start properly at all, and display a 'System Software Missing" message. This tip will describe how to restore your Garmin Nuvi GPS system software using Garmin Webupdater.

My Garmin is telling me to get map updates. I do not know how to do this. I have gone to the web sight and there is so many sales places that I don't know witch one to use. Can you help me to do this?...


You can purchase map updates on CD at your local GPS retailer. If you do not want to do this, go to www.garmin.com. Go to the tab at the top of the site that says "Products". It will drop a menu. Click on, "On the Road". On the next page, click, "Automotive." Since the Nuvi 250W is discontinued, click that on the left side of the page. Then scroll to the Nuvi 250W and click it. Click the "Map" tab and then click on "View map updates for this product." Then click on the appropriate update.
