Head over to Garmin's website, and download/Install WebUpdater. It is a free software program that will update your unit's firmware automatically.

Thanks!

Update file on garmin corrupted


Same happened to my Garmin Nuvi 760, power failed during upload. Files corrupted. Garmin could not locate it with Sat. Told me to trash it and they would give me $70 towards purchase of a new one, which would not fit in my cars receiver. My solution was to purchase a used one that had a good Garmin File folder. I copied the folder to my pc. It was important to remove the device file from the copied folder. I then formatted my corrupted 760. Then copied the folder from my pc into the formatted 760. Next step was to use Garmin Express to replace the missing device file, do the updates, and reinstall the maps. Product code to unlock maps was inside the rear plastic housing to unlock the maps. Whole process took about 4 hours and it works like new now.

Find a local Garmin dealer - there's no way to reinstall system software once its missing essential parts to complete a startup.

Garmin allows updates in battery mode which can brick the GPS once it runs out of power during the update.

Describe your Garmin nuvi® 260W Car GPS Receiver Problem. System Software Missing. I get a message on computer that it is ready to use but Garmin does not show up on any of the drives.


I contacted Garmin and they had me disconnect my unit from the computer and down load the updater again. The down load shows up with two files the updater and another one . I had to drag them to my desktop and then drag the one file onto the updater and then plug in my unit and start the updater.

If you are refering a system file update then you should download and use the Webupdater from the Garmin website. The POI Loader should only be used to load custom poi files into the unit.

Hi It is more important to know how to add POIs. Here is a simple tip: 

1. Create some directory especially for download. I use the following one: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM 

2. Download and save all CSV and BMP files to that directory. You may create any subdirectory and use it to save POIs for that category. 
I use: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Restaurants, C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Petrol etc. 

3. Garmin's POI Loader will find all files in these subfolders and will use them to create a category. 
Garmin POI Loader will search through the directory C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM and will create/transfer all corresponding POIs to your connected GPS. 

4. You can remove any POI file simply by removing it from your POI folder. and re-running the POI Loader software. This POI update procedure takes about 1-2 minutes. 

In summary, keep your POI files updated on your PC and run POI Loader to update your GPS or SD card via any SD card reader. 

Cheers

Deleted voice


Hello Sallilou,

If you deleted the voice files without backing them up you can try running the Garmin WebUpdater software. This program updates the operating software for your GPS and can be used to update maps and other files. It may be possible to reinstall the voice files using WebUpdater. (To download the WebUpdater software go here.)

Some of the Garmin products do have voice files available for download via the Garmin website. (Namely the Quest product.) However the Nuvi 200W does not appear to have such files immediately available for download.

If you aren't able to update the voice files this way I would suggest you give Garmin a call directly.

Best Regards,
Ken
