You actually have to buy a cable to do that, it's a mini-USB to USB cable. It normally goes for a few bucks..here is a link for you.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812816057

There are other brands and lenghts but I think you get the idea now, right? Make sure that the mini connection matches the back of the Nuvi's connection, if you have an electronic store near your house take it with you and show the salesperson.

As for updating the unit itself, well you have to purchase the maps from Gamin. If you just bought it, you may qualify for a free map update when you register the unit. Click on the following link..

https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/createNewAccount.faces?target=/mygarmin/registration/registrationHome.htm

Register for an account, it's important that you do. Specially if you start purchasing maps from them, they save all that info for you so if your computer crashes you can just reinstall all your maps again using the codes they save for you. Then register your NUVI and see if you qualify...Good Luck!!

Garmin nuvi 205 gps trouble shooting will not power on


If your Garmin NUVI 205 can be recognized by your computer when it is plugged in, I recommend you backup your favorites. Then I suggest a hard reset.

Finally, replace the firmware and system software using webupdate.

Your Nuvi should not need to be able to power up for a firmware update to be possible - replacing the firmware should allow it to power up successfully after the update.

I hope that helps.

My nuvi 205 i want to updated the software. I want to put B/Tooth on it


The software can be updated for free using Garmins Web updater which can be found on their site. Unfortunately the 205 series cannot support Bluetooth. It has a very limited memory and also does not have the internal microphone required for Bluetooth.
