Question about GPS Devices

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Garmin nuvi 260 and would like to know if I can upload pictures into it. I never noticed that mine has a slideshow already included with some pictures, but I would like to delete the ones that are already in the gps and replace them with mine. Can you tell me how to do it? thanks!

You have a couple of options for getting JPEG picture files into the nuvi:

1. Insert a memory card which already has the pictures on it.

2. Buy a USB cable and connect to your computer. The nuvi will appear like a drive, and you can move, copy or delete files on it. If you have very many picture files, then you might need to add a memory card to your nuvi.

Garmin will not recognize destination


How are you entering it? You should go to "Where to?", "Address", then "Spell State/Province". Enter "On" and the unit should pull up "Ontario". Press this, then press "Spell City/Postal Code". Type "Ot" and the unit should pull up several cities, including "Ottawa, ON" Press this, then enter the rest of the address. Let me know if this helps.

I still cannot upload my own jpeg photos into my Garmin 255. Anyone know how to do this without using the memory card? Thanks! -bipperino


Yes, it's done the same way as adding music files to Nuvi's that have a MP3 player. Please see this link, however paste the pictures (.jpg format) into the existing JPEG folder already on your Nuvi that contains pictures installed by the factory.

Uploading pictures into a Garmin GPS


Hi, you should be able to copy photos from your PC via the USB cable. I saved mine onto the SD card. You can also access your Garmin as if it was a hard drive using "My Computer". Just click on the "Garmin" drive, navigate to the appropriate folder (I think there's a folder called Garmin, then a Photos sub-folder). Just delete the photos you don't want.

Garmin Nuvi stopped working and won't restart


Got a Garmin Nuvi 260. Same problem. I read the booklet. There's a reset button on the bottom. Disconnect from power. Push the reset button. Connect back to power. Now it works. The reset button is tiny and looks more like just text on the bottom sticker than it does a button. But push it anyway.

Garmin Nuvi 260 - white screen


Hit the side of the Garmin a few times while it is on. I did this to mine, and now I can see the screen like before.

Nuvi 200


Insert your card with your JPEG picture only and you can read it.

You can also plug your usb and go to your computer , open the file GARMIN you will see many files , do not touch the GARMIN main files who include your charts and other important files but the others are there for the users. Copy and paste your picture into the one who already has picture from GARMIN.

Or copy into a SD card and read it on your NUVI 200 or 200W.

Best regards
