Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver
After updating my Garmin nuvi 255w it shows XM receiver not supported when plugged to the car charger, and the device seems not to be charging again with the charger. How do I fix this? Should I buy new power charger.

I had same problem. I called Garmin customer service who connected me to a computer rep. Garmin hooks with your computer that you have your Garmin plugged into.They can upload the proper software in no time at all.
The rep told me that after I updated my Garmin I might have turned off the unit before it completed updating the new software. You need to wait until the screen with "Where to?" appears.
It works great now. Prepare to wait on hold for a while. I waited just over an hour on Monday, their busiest day.

SOURCE: Charging a garmin nuvi 255w
From dead flat it takes about 9-10 hours
do not leave on charger for more than that otherwise you will overheat and burn it out.
After each use recharge for about 3-4 hours depending on whether the unit has been used for that lengthyof time

First, what version of maps do you have? 2009? If so, there's no reason to update at this time.
To register, just go to https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/marketing/register.htm and create an account. You'll need to create a user name and password and then enter in your units serial number which is located on the decal on the bottom rear of your unit.
Once you have an account established, you can then shop the Garmin store and buy whatever you want.

You can try. When we went to update our Garmin GPS, they wanted actual money. I told them I wanted it free ... they said they were not moved, maps cost money and if I wanted maps, money was the medium of exchange.
Turned out the cost was almost 50% of the price of a new device.
We are still using the "old" maps. We are surviving.
