Question about Garmin nuvi 205 GPS Receiver
New Garmin NUVI 205. I used the Garmin Webupdater and it removed the OS. I can not find the fix on the Garmin site. When I try to use their updater I get a "Corrupted File" Message
The fix is actually pretty simple. Contact Garmin customer support they will send you the fix in an email. The file is a zip file that you unzip to your desk top then you just follow the instructions. I would recommend keeping the file on your desktop just in case it happens again. Once the system is restored then the updater works properly.

I just got an answer from Garmin Support Germany and they sent me an file which fixed the problem. Just download http://e-trex.info/fw/nuvi/2x5/nuvi205_085101000280en.rar
It contains a "Updater.exe" and a file called "085100010270.rgn".
Follow the following steps and you should have your nüvi back.
Firstly connect your broken nüvi. Then drag and drop the 085100010270.rgn on the updater.exe. Choose USB as a connection and it should put an old firmware back on your device.
I hope I was able to help you!
