Difference in software versions for two-nuvi 260Ws

I have two nuvi 260Ws. One purchased in April 2008 and the second, December 2008. The first has version 4.0 and the second has version 4.6. I like version 4.6 because of the QWERTY keyboard. Can I update v4.0 to v4.6?

Yes,

You need a USB cable. Connect it between your Nuvi and your PC. Go to www.garmin.com and download their webupdater program and install it on your PC. Run the webupdater and it will allow you to upgrade the firmware.

In order to update your Garmin Nuvi 205W's system version, you'll need to download software which checks your unit's current version and updates it to the latest version. The current version available is 2.9.1.0 as of December, 2009. Garmin makes it easy by installing a browser plugin instead of having to install a software package. The WebUpdater plugin can be downloaded here:
http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

In order to install the plugin you must first agree to the license agreement. You will then need to close all of your open browsers that are open on your computer to finish the install. Once you have, the plugin will start to install. To finish the system update, Garmin lists several steps on a page;
  • Disconnect your 205W from your laptop or desktop and let it restart
  • Once you see the main screen, you can connect it back to your computer and wait 30 seconds.
  • On the next screen, click the 'Find Devices' button and then click the 'Next' button.
Once your computer finds your 205W and you initiate the update, the plugin will install the new system to your unit.

Hope helps.

Garmin Nüvi 7 Series Software Version:


The best way to charge a GPS in the house is with a high power USB charger and not with your PC. Your PC provides very little power through its USB commect.

That said, one hour on battery power is normal. If you are getting an hour of power from PC charging, then the problem is definitely the GPS charging cable.

Nuvi 205 voice stopped working


I had the same problem. I went onto Garmin.com and attached the Nuvi to the computer using a cord that I had for my blackberry phone. Once connected, I turned on the Nuvi and ran the update tool. The update tool will reinstall the voices. This seemed to work the first time. I have had to do this twice now since I received the Nuvi 205 on December 26, 2008 (it's February 13, 2009)

Not sure what the financial quarter is exactly, but Wiki suggests that this is:
Therefore the solution would be:
datepart("q",dateadd("m",-3,DateValueVariable))

Tested using
datepart("q",dateadd("m",-3, now()))
datepart("q",dateadd("m",-3,"1/12/8"))

If the finanical quarters are different just add or sub more from the -3 i.e. if April is Q1 then +3 instead
