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.

Does your Garmin Nuvi 265W GPS get stuck or freeze at startup, or when loading maps?

Garmin gps doesn't work when charging with cigarette charger. Instead of the GPS to Navigate it rather shows like there's a data transfer.


Hello,

The proper vehicle power cables for the Garmin nuvi 260 are part numbers 010-10723-06 or 010-11478-03.
The use of improper cables will cause the nuvi to go into mass storage.

I dropped my Garming Nuvi 260 this past weekend and when I turn it on it goes to a screen saying Updating GPS Firmware 1% then jumps to Updating GPS Firmware Complete. It keeps popping up with these...


Inspect the bottom of your Nuvi 260. According to the owner's manual, some models have a small "Reset" button on the bottom. If yours does, you'll use this to reset the Nuvi 260.Press and hold the "Reset" button for several seconds, until the Nuvi powers off and powers back on. Next try
to slide the power switch on top all the way to the left to reset your Nuvi if it does not have a "Reset" button. Performing this action resets the system.
Next try a hard reset.
Slide the power switch to "Off."
Press your finger against the screen in the lower-right corner. Hold your finger in this position.
Slide the power switch to "On" to turn the Nuvi on. Continue holding your finger on the screen until the pop-up window appears. When it does, press "Yes" to reset your Nuvi to its factory settings.

Hope this works but dropping may have caused internal damage. If this does not work you may have to send it back to Garmin for service. I will attach a link for Garmin. Thanks for using FixYa.

Nuvi 260 won't turn on at all.


Had the same problem with my Garmin Nuvi 260w. It just needed to be reset. Lift up the sticker strip on the bottom of the unit and press the reset tab. Worked like a charm for me. HTH!

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.

Sounds like you did an incomplete firmware update. Go here:
