Plug your GPS into your computer it has a drive letter (look in My Computer)and is provbably called Garmin and has a little icon. The next highest letter drive is the SD card. I use SD to download POIs and keep photos. I don't think there is a way to look at stuff on the SD through the GPS, you need a computer You can transfer stuff from SD to Garmin by connecting the USB then copying stuff between drive letters. In the Garmin drive, select JPEG to store your photos, you can then view them on Garmin. You can download pictures from My Computer, My Pictures to the drive letter of the SD or put them directly into the JPEG folder on the GPS. Hope this helps

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
