There's a guy in Ohio named Barry G that puts some limited truck software on Garmin GPS units.
I got his number from a friend that had his set up by this guy.
It's 419-681-4249

Radio Shack sold me the Nuvi 255w display model (demo version). They assured me that it would work, when I got it home it says no detailed maps found that support routing. I have reset it to default and...


Yes and you may be able to download a map for free , if the unit has never been registered with Garmin.

The Nuvi 2xxW series has a limited internal memory and the latest maps are fairly large in size and may not fit on the units internal memory. The map may have to go on an SD card.

The no detailed maps warning would have come up on the screen at the store as well.

Does your Garmin Nuvi 200 or 200W 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.

When I turned on my Garmin nuv 255W Car GPS Receiver it reminded me to update it because my software was over a year old. My question is how do I update if possible without incurring any cost? Andy


Hi soami696,

To update the software for your unit, free of charge, follow these instructions:

1. Go to http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater, and download WebUpdater to your computer.
2. Connect the GPS unit to your computer using the Mini-USB cable.
3. Run WebUpdater and follow the on-screen instructions.

After confirming that you want to the update, WebUpdater will automatically download the update and install it on your device.

Reboot your GPS receiver, and you should have the latest updated software from Garmin.

For a copy of a manual for your series of GPS units, go to this link and download here:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/2675_OwnersManual.pdf

This manual covers operation of several 200 series Garmin GPS Receivers, such as 205, 205W, 215, 215W, 255, 255W, 265, 265W, 275, and 285W, etc.

Let me know how this works out for you, and if you need further assistance, I'll be glad to help. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

WHEN I POWER ON MY NUVI 255W IT SAYS NO DETAILED


sounds like the map folder in the gps software got corrupted. you will have to connect your device to your computer, get on the Garmin website, and let the garmin site update your device. Once updated, it will re-install the correct folders and maps to their proper place. the gps should work as before after that.

What happens after that screen is that the operating system is loading, I would say that the software is corrupt. Garmin will be able to walk you through reloading the software.

How do I get Map Source and related software on a laptop in addition to my desktop? I want to be able to make route and waypoint additions away from my desk for a Garmin nuvi 265WT.


Mapsource comes on a cd and is just installed like any other program. Then you access it from the start menu. Once you make your routes or poi's you connect the nuvi with the usb cable and upload.

You should be able to set your journey "via" a specific place. Im not sure it wil work with via m5 though. I just let it rerout itself when I get on the m5. The other option is to plan your route "avoiding" ceretain places. Is there an option to save your route if you travel that way?
