SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 265 W 'system software missing' message

The system bootloader software got scrambled when you did the update. You can escalate it to a software tech and they may be able to give you the bootloader image file. If not, you'll have to get an RMA and send it back for a unit swap.

If the unit indicates "software/firmware missing"
Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.htmlDownload and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and startthe updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you canuse the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550
Goodluck

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

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.

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

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

I hope that helps.

Garmin 265W After cleaning the screen with a duster--switched on, the screen will not respond to touch, I have updated software but cant use garmin as screen wont respond. cant hard reset again as screen...


Hello,

Doing a soft reset on the nuvi will usually get the nuvi up and running.
If there is a reset button on the bottom, press and hold it until the nuvi powers back on. If it does not have the reset button on the bottom, slide and hold the power switch to the left for at least 10 seconds.
Also running the Garmin WebUpdater and reloading the latest update will resolve most issues.
Download and Install WebUpdater.
