    I had gps plugged in over night and it's still dead. It said it was charging. When plugged in and charging there is not a battery icon on the screen. Is the battery dead then? Thank you.

You must call Garmin at 1-800-800-1020 they will walk you through plugging in nuvi to your computer (must have usb cord) and it will upload then go to my computer and choose garmin drive then click garmin folder and either find the folder they say or make new one like I did with the guy on the phone and put in code. The only information needed is the numbers on the bottom of the device.... super fast fix!

Ok I had same problem. Copy the mapupdater .exe file to another computer with internet access. Connect your GPS and then run the updater file. This worked for me. Good luck

You need to connect your GPS to your computer and reinstall the basic operating system from the Garmin site.

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.
