I need my free map update that came with my nuvi 205w


Hey steven barber,

To update the garmin nuvi 205 for free, you'll first need to have your GPS, an USB cable and a computer. There are web sites that will allow you to down load an update to your GPS for free. Make sure the version you pick is compatible to your computer to download it. You'll want to plug the USB cable into both the GPS and the computer, to download the upgrade to your GPS.


Check this link out for the Garmin myDashboard for your GPS

Good Luck!

Garmin etrex ledgend c: When track log is turned on, "breadcrumbs" mark the path I've traveled. I don't save the track but the breadcrumbs remain on the unit's map....forever.


Hello

Check both your track and map settings. Make sure that "show track on map" is not selected in your map settings, and in your track settings try erasing all previous tracks.

Hope this helps!

My Garmin Nuvi 855 is locking up. I can only get as far as entering the city and sometimes not even that when entering an address. How do I fix?


Go to Garmin's site and download & install the Web Updater as directed. The address is:

http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

After running the updater on your nuvi 855, it will have the latest firmware (this process does not download and install the latest map software) and should solve your problem.

If you continue to have problems, you might want to contact Garmin Customer Support directly at the address below:

http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/home/support/supportcontact

The people there are knowledgeable and can solve many problems over the phone. Their service is free of charge.

Garmin Nuvi 250W stuck on "Loading Maps..." screen. I know it wasn't a clever thing to do, but I dragged a file (a map i think) into the Nuvi's internal memory via Windows Explorer. Now every PC i have...


Try the reset, and if that fails, download the web updater from the garmin site and try that route.


Master reset will erase all way points or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.
  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers ON
    • You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes

I think I may have found the solution.

A reply for a post on another site:

I visited the Garmin Corp office to seek help with that problem. If the shut down occurs right after satellite acquisition and the screen may show just a narrow black line going across it, it is likely due to some program changes the sattelite folks did without telling the software programmers. Garmin web site has a free download fix for the problem. Another option is to go into your settings and turn off the WAAS. Hope this helps. Go to the web site, check downloads, find your model gps and there you go. Good luck.

I disabled WAAS and so far so good.

I couldn't find the fix on the Garmin site.

HTH.

To update to the latest requires buying a map update. Too expensive in my book. Garmin does have a POI loader utility that you can get at their site. Various web sites have POI listings that can then be installed. You can also find individual POI listings for such things as all Walmarts at a company's web site.
