Have you tried pressing the reset button on the bottom where the decal is?

    Is it fully charged? Is your charger OK? If it won't come on, then there is a problem with the main board in the unit.

Hi - I own a Garmin Nuvi 260w. Is it possible to use the SD card to download a trucker navigation road map and upload this to my Garmin Nuvi 260w? Thanks for your response.


Hello,

It is possible as long as the map is Garmin compatible.
However even with a trucker navigation map installed, the nuvi 260w will not function as a trucking GPS as the routing and IQ of the nuvi 260w does not have the capability to operate in this manner.
The nuvi 260w does not have a trucking mode to allow for the input of specific truck information like truck and trailer length and gross vehicle weight to use as factors on determining the best route for the specific truck/trailer combination.
I would recommend using a GPS specifically designed for trucking like the Garmin Dezl.

Cannot save direcctions to my gharmin 260w


Unfortunately the Garmin Nuvi 260W lacks the capability to save a route. If you are looking for a unit with great Trip Planning (route saving) features, the new Garmin Nuvi 3790T is a great option. I am currently using one and I love it.

Cheers

When i charge my garmin nuvi 260W with a car chager, the screen would be stuck, and i'm not able to use it.?


garmin are very fussy about there chargers if its the original charger then there is a fault with it if its not the original then get one ( you can only use genuine garmin chargers for garmin gps units) they have a clever sensor in them that stops you from using any other type of charger

How do I reset the password on my Garmin Nuvi 260w? Thanks


Take it back to the exact place where the password was set. Once the GPS is at the coordinates it will let you change the PW. This is an anti theft security and cannot be over ridden.

Garmin Nuvi 260w not recognized by computer


Hi,
Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.html Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can use the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550
Goodluck

Nuvi 265wt Shuts off then back on and keeps doing this


Not starting, getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
